I apologize for being AWOL for so long.  I've flaked on posting but not on adventure!  I never thought my summer LV would see snow, but Baranof saw it in both Chicago and Madison, WI.

I found a new-to-me fabric store Batiks Plus.  Not only can you buy yardage but they have a remnant bin.  Picked up way too much.

I helped my cousin vend in Dallas at Frightmare, and Baranof easily made some friends there, including Gomez & Morticia Addams.

I got some holographic new kicks that light up!  I'm probably too old for such things, but then again, is anyone ever really too old for shiny shoes?

We also went to Paducah for the quilt show and spent Memorial Day putting flags on soldier's graves.

Baranof went with me to Tulsa, OK for his first vending job.  He did a great job displaying costumes

and had a good time hanging with the featured instructor David.

It was cloudy and cool most of the time, but on Sunday it was nice and sunny.  I took Baranof to meet the Golden Driller at the Expo Center.

There's a tourist trap along the way that enjoys the worst sort of puns.  It's the Uranus Fudge Factory, and they also have a restaurant, tattoo parlor, sideshow, and shooting range.  The fudge made in Uranus is actually really good, but I knew it wouldn't be fresh by sendouts.  I'm hoping to get back there for a longer visit.

Baranof arrived Saturday, and that evening we went to watch a friend dance.  Sorry the photo is so crappy (low level fluorescent lighting).

I had to redo my hair dye, and Baranof swore he was pretty good at it.  I didn't doubt his application skills, but I was worried he might get it all over himself so he only got to pose with the brushes and wiping rag.

He got pretty excited when he could help with relining a bra, though.  Here he is demonstrating how his holding skills are superior to any clip.

I just sent my questionnaire for Echo to go out on a new adventure.

Echo is home, and apparently she had a great time with WingsoftheWind.  There's so much loot I had to put it in two pictures!  Everything was wrapped so nicely, but being the heathen I am I didn't take any photos of that because I was too busy tearing into the box.  Here is the scrapbook, a favorite book of WOTW, hand painted seasonal magnets, the pretty bags things were in, and a magazine about North Carolina.  That biscuit cover is just killing me!  Oh, and there's also Echo's new Santa hat that fits her fin just fine, thank you.

Next up is all kinds of paper ephemera including a Krispy Kreme hat and postcards of barns with quilts on them.  I love this tradition, and the Seven Sisters pattern on the top card is a favorite pattern.  There's also a rubber duck and dancing jewelry.

I'm honored to have been your first LV swap partner, and I hope you'll do another round (or twenty)!  Thanks again!

That Happypotamus is adorable!

Orenji and I are back from Cairo.  On my first flight of the trip my neighbor was traveling with a stuffed bear, so Orenji and he spent a bit of time together.

Orenji helped me shop,


and see the sights.

It's currently snowing again (up to four inches predicted), so I likely won't get the package mailed until Monday.

Last weekend we got almost 9" of snow in a 24 hour period.  That's a lot for here, but it's good for snow angels and snow dying fabric.  I felt like Orenji shouldn't be going out in all that snow without protection, so I made a scarf.

I also made a gooey butter cake (a local favorite).  It's rich but so tasty!

Kimmswick, MO is a town of about 150 people not far from me.  Most of the buildings in town are from the late 19th century and have been repurposed as shops and restaurants.  I met some sewing friends for lunch at the Dough Depot and thought Orenji needed a picture taken with this stained glass divider.

We are headed to Cairo on Monday, so I definitely won't be posting until the beginning of February.  So happy for the delayed sendout!

OMG Hi!  Remember me?  Roll Eyes  I was rolling right along with posting, then nothing exciting happened and the next thing I know BAM! It's January.  It's sad, but I'm not even sure what the last thing I posted was.  I do know that Orenji got to see three Christmas trees this year.  Here's my mom's tree.

I met some friends for a dance show in The Grove.  It's a funky little area with small breweries, bars, and ethnic restaurants.

I've never had this happen before, but my keyboard died.  Here's Orenji with the new one.  Can you even stand the excitement?

I normally wear glasses, but I wanted to pick up some contacts for occasional wear.  Orenji's eyes were checked while we were there and got a clean bill of health.

White Castle's boxes used to be blue, but on a recent visit I noticed they'd switched to orange.  Orenji wholeheartedly approves of the new color.

Last but not least, we watched the birds eat suet.  I love the bright cardinals in the winter landscape.  We're supposed to get snow this weekend, and hopefully I'll spot some more.

OMG completely forgot we got our first snow last night.  It's a couple weeks early and was hard to get because it was night time, but the flakes were nice and large.  I'm sure a lot of kids were disappointed when they woke up this morning because it was already gone.

We have a sculpture park that I used to visit all the time in high school, but I hadn't been there in a while.  These two installations are new to me.  They do have other works that aren't giant things, but that's all I took pictures of on our quick stop.

Even though Orenji begged to help grout I wouldn't allow it.  That stuff gets everywhere!

I sold raffle tickets for my quilt guild's fundraiser, and Orenji made a new friend.

I started my seasonal job at Mother Earth Pillows sewing pillows and covers.

My friend Kevin came to our guild meeting and did a presentation.  These two got along just fine.

After voting we found this tree in a hallway.  I'm still not sure if it's cute or creepy.

I met some friends for a long lunch on Sunday, and we went to a Syrian restaurant that opened this year.  It was so good and I was so hungry that I completely blanked on getting a photo with my food, but here's one of Orenji and my empty tea pot and cup.  Roll Eyes

Last but not least, this week I had a consultation and prep work for getting my teeth fixed!  My Invisalign trays should be here at the beginning of December.
