I'm going to American Geophysical Unions Fall Meeting in San Francisco. I fly in mid-day on Saturday, December 13. The meeting starts on Monday, December 15. That means I have 1.5 days to play in San Francisco.
Any one want to meet up for retail therapy? Museum going? Dining? I'm up for almost anything reachable by public transit (or if you can drive). I'm a returning SFBA native. So, if you are also visiting for AGU, I can guide you to some of my favorite SF haunts.
I'm saving the weekend after the meeting for visiting with my family. I'm bringing an extra-large suitcase to hold a poster tube and for treasures that have to come home with me.
There is so much going on in my life that interferes with my ability to sew. It will end someday and I will have a fantastic sewing space. It's just going to be painful for the next 6 months.
Since I took this photo, I've sewn the patterned duvet top together. There was just barely enough fabric so I had an excuse not to try to match the pattern. The red African fabric has the irregular pattern characteristic of hand-printed fabric. It would have driven me crazy to try to match the stripes. (Remember my past experience with matching an African hand-printed fabric?)
This weekend, I hope to find some time to make the button closure band and sew it to the cozy flannel backing.
I also hope to finish laying out my AGU poster and complete all sections except for formatting the references.
