back to reality after days of eating and celebrating...my daughter's birthday and mine comes two days apart, and most years thanksgiving falls very close, so it seems like we are eating for days! here we all are for my birthday, my daughter's took me out to an indian restaurant that is very close to our house. they have this cool 'authentic indian tent' that they reserved for us to have our dinner in. it was very pretty and cozy. we feasted on spicy samosas, chicken tikka masala and paneer naan, with yummy warm spiced chai tea!
so, getting back to sewing today, i felt like i had not sewn anything for weeks! i am working on some hip scarves for my friend that owns the place where i take the belly dance classes. her store is ottoman trading company in country village, near where i live. her store is so cool, it has lots of beautiful things, and she is one of the nicest people that i know! the store is in such a cute setting, all the pretty little shops, with chickens and a duck pond. and it is lit so beautifully for the holidays! i love going christmas shopping there, there are always lots of interesting things that you cannot find at the mall!
