Bowling!

My friend Allison celebrated her birthday on the weekend. It was a 50s theme, so we all dressed up and went bowling. Glow in the dark bowling!
You can't see them too well, but here's a pic of my shoes. I always liked the look of bowling shoes.
And we got candy bags! The sugar helped me bowl better.
And good think you can't see this to well either - our scores. We came third out of third in the tournament. But it was still lots of fun!

King and I peeps!

I went to an opening at the Gateway Theatre and ran into a bunch of old friends. We all did the King and I together, it was fun to see them!

Plant Life

This row of plants sits on the window sill in a cafe on Main Street. I see such simple plants in little glass jars or pots and think, why don't I do that at home? I have to find a sunny window, either at home or wok, because look how happy they are!

The Witch

Look at how fierce my friend Sarah is! She's playing the witch in Into the Woods.
I have known her for many years, but the is the first time we get to work together.
Step aside, Meryl!

Out and about

What's he thinking..?
Ah froyo, how I love thee.
Palm trees and stormy skies.

Lola

Earlier this year I wrote about the Hey Buster portrait I had made for Shawna. Well I got another one done, since Claire is so awesome. Here is Lola! Lola is my friend's pomeranian, whom they lost suddenly last year. Now she's immortalized in print, er - portrait.
Have a look at the Hey Buster site - I can't say enough about Claire and her talents!

Orange Blanket done

Over a year ago, I posted about the wool winder I got. I used it to wind up some vintage yarn I picked up from Handmade Hugs.
Then I started making up squares. I had a lot of help from Pinterest. Because Pinterest is da best!
I had a stack of them done for awhile, but didn't put them all together...
until last weekend. This one is HUGE, a lot bigger than the other blankets I've made. It's a bit itchy because it's pure wool, but it's SO warm! It will go into the pile to deliver to Handmade Hugs. Whee, another one done :)
