Wouldn't you know it but this morning was the first chance to sleep late that I've had in more than a year and here I am, up earlier than usual. Todd and Dr. S (as we've taken to calling her) have gone to Paris (or, as she says, "Pay-toe") for the week, and I'm home working on the final details of preparing for Quilt Market. (Details like actually making the samples for the booth and making the curtains themselves for the booth walls; maybe I shouldn't be calling them details, come to think of it.)
Their upcoming trip gave me a good excuse to lay aside all the crucial deadlines and make S a small Paris-themed backpack for the occasion.
Of course she wasn't willing to model it for me. She was too busy reassuring me, "I be back soon, Mommy," when I told her I would miss her.
We packed it with all the necessities: a sketchbook, stickers, pencils and crayons, her new silverware/chopstick mess kit, and a few other key items for the trip.
And I got a big scolding from the MTA employees for snapping this shot as they entered the subway en route to the airport. I know photos aren't allowed, but it was worth it.
