chicago and a few new lessons

i'm back from chicago and had a great time visiting an old friend. my 5 days were spent flying, shopping, eating, sewing pinch pleat drapes - which are in fact quite simple, eating, shopping some more, lounging, thrifting, eating, hemming and most of all, laughing. thanks steph, for a wonderful weekend! now if i can just make you love this amazing crystal chandelier as much as i do :)
