Texanana is adorable in his wee little hat! Grin

Because of Hurricane Arthur (who did nothing here except rain pretty hard overnight Thursday night and was done doing his thing by the time I got up at 10am on Friday) Virginia Beach postponed all of its fireworks shows... the one I was supposed to see last night was changed to tonight (even though the weather yesterday was PERFECT) so... no fireworks.

BUT Piper and I had a really productive weekend of cross-stitching, working on Christmas presents! (Christmas in July, yeah?) Here's what we got done:


Song lyrics for my friend Christopher


Peeps which will be ornaments for my stepmom (I'm about to start the purple one)


And some nametags, too.

Back to work tomorrow, but the last week of the month, I have two big (still in-state, but big) trips that will be very exciting!

Instead of fireworks, here are the Christmas presents Damson helped me with all weekend...


Song lyrics for my friend Christopher


Peeps (which will turn into ornaments) for my stepmom... I'm actually about to start the purple one in just a minute but Damson is my purply stand-in for now.


And we made some nametags too!

Back to work tomorrow but I have two big trips (okay, they're both in-state, but they're exciting) coming up during the last week of the month, back-to-back!

The fireworks I expected last night were actually postponed to TONIGHT... which is weird, because the weather was GORGEOUS last night. I've never seen better fireworks weather. We heard a different fireworks show, but couldn't see them from the balcony/parking lot, so no photos.

Here in Virginia Beach, all the fireworks and festivities got postponed to tonight because everyone was worried about Hurricane Arthur crashing the parties. (He was done doing his thing here by 10am yesterday, by the way.)

So we'll be having our fun tonight! We spent all day yesterday cross-stitching Christmas presents! (You know... Christmas in July!)  Grin

Oh no, the books escaped... they were piled neatly at the bottom when last I saw them.  Undecided

I'm so glad Anana is getting to cook a whole bunch... Damson is, too! I tend to forgot to take a photo of him helping, because I'm already taking photos for my food blog, and some recipes just don't allow for enough photography time...

Is the Hermione silhouette done on card stock or something sturdier?   

She's double layered card stock. I cut out two silhouettes and glued them together to sandwich the wire holding her to the top of the tin and to make the silhouette sturdier.

Alexampersandra - OH NO! It looks like the wire became separated from the silhouette and that is SO not now Hermione is intended to be attached. Sad You can either trim the wire close to the tin, or try to gently ease it back between the two card stock pieces on Hermione's left foot. I'm sorry it separated. I should have used E6000 on the silhouette piece as well but didn't want it getting gloopy.

For those who want a closer look, Hermione has her own thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434226.msg5212705#msg5212705

I actually fixed her up after I took the photos (I didn't notice before then), so she's fine now  Grin

Weird little post today... Piper helps me model my new welding goggles, to be used in my Halloween costume as Ramona Flowers:

Damson and I resorted to the in-the-bathroom-door selfie for this one...

My welding goggles arrived in the mail so I'm one step closer to being Ramona Flowers for Halloween!



Damson and I agree that it'll look better once my hair is blue. But that will be an adventure for my next LV, unfortunately (or between LVs if the timing is off).
