1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 29 Gallery! on: June 01, 2019 04:17:05 PM
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.

Very jealous of how easy his setup and breakdown are! Grin
I hear you!  It takes me forever to pack up.  Meanwhile, the dyed silk vendors are done in no time.  They have the added bonus of having lighter and less bulky items.

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.

Baby goats!  I'm dying from the cute!

BigBangMomma, are you a fellow quilter? 

That matching hat for Flobot is adorable!  I'm in awe of your construction skills.  I always want to make something for my LVs, but I have a hard time without a pattern.

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.

Orenji is really to travel again


Hopefully the new host will be better at working the journal than I was.  I had good intentions but clearly lacked on follow through.  Roll Eyes

Uh oh. Will I need some new skills? I'm very excited about hosting Orenji -- don't want to mess up!   Shocked   Huh   Undecided


You can't mess it up any worse than I did. LOL  I'm neither a person who journals nor an artist, but I felt like I should put something in the book.  Pretty much a fail on my part because I think I did maybe three poor sketches at best.  I'm not anti-journal by any means, but I just don't keep up with them.  As a kid I would receive diaries as presents and do it for maybe a week, and those planners that others find so useful I just don't actually use them.  They always sound like such a great organizational tool but go unused when in my hands.  Shocked

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

I did a terrible job organizing this round and I'm sorry. Life just about did me in this winter. I swear this coming round will be better Smiley
I'm not sure how you did a terrible job.  Huh  Everyone got partners and all LVs made it back home safely.  I think you did a swell job!  Now that I think about I don't recall ever thanking you for organizing, so thank you!

I'm so glad it arrived with everything intact!  Happy you like the mug rug - I'm afraid the Pathfinder logo isn't as prominent as I'd hoped, but hopefully you can see it.  I was going for a dragon-y feel.  Roll Eyes  One of the strangest things in Cairo is seeing American brands.  DH always gets a kick out his Egyptian Snickers, and I'm glad you enjoyed it as well.
