Lonely Car

UBC has a deal with car2go, where you can leave your car parked on the very top level of the parkades. I hoofed it up 8 flights of stairs to find this car waiting for me. Poor lonely car2go, it's so small and it had the whole floor to itself.

Same Boat - winner!

Guess what? Same Boat WON the People's Choice Award sat the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. I didn't get a chance to go to the screening, but I was happy to attend the cast and crew screening. And we won, how cool!

Music on the Mall

More goings-on at UBC during the summer: Music on the Mall. The Fireside Quintet played an hour of lovely music last week, I was happy I got to listen while eating my lunch in the sunshine.
This week they have yoga on the mall - hopefully I can check that out too.

PNE - part one

Last weekend we got free tickets to the opening day of the PNE. I usually go to the fair a couple of times over two weeks. This time we went because the TUTS board arranged to have tickets for us. It was awesome! We had some food, including CORN, sat in the beer garden with some friends, and drank in the sights and sounds.

Me and my hubs checked out the bees at the farm.
We watched a very cool demonstration of honey extraction. Aren't bees fascinating?!
We got to see Cathy Rigby as Peter Pan! I didn't think to snap a pic, but it was amazing. You should check it out if you can, it's free with admission or you can upgrade to floor seats for $20.
And we finished off the night with - mini donuts of course! I'll be back, PNE!

Knit Hood

I made one of these cute hoodie things for a friend's baby girl. It was so quick and easy.
I love the colour! It turned out great, so I hope she likes it!

Campus/summer/beach

I checked out a food truck on campus last week, the Roaming Bowl. YUM!
And here's something else I saw on campus, they're painting the grass green! It's been so hot and dry, and we have water restrictions. So lawns all over are turning brown.
We hit up the beach last week too. Such a lovely view. What a nice spot to lounge and read and nap.
Ahhh summer!

Crocheted Madeline

I made a little Madeline! This is the picture I used as reference.

And here's what I came up with:
This is a gift for Nicol, by way of her Hairspray Secret Friend. A few people saw the Avengers set I made for Dustin and ordered a couple of characters for their friends.
I thought about flat ironing her hair, so it didn't stick out so much. But then thought, what the heck, it gives her character!
I like her little yellow hat, it makes me smile.
Hope she makes you smile too!
