Other than swearing at the local router and the lack of internet connection these past few days, that is…
The weekend of October 8th, my belly-buddies and I traveled to Nags Head, NC to attend Beach Blanket Beledi. Much fun was had by all (the first rule of the workshop is “You MUST have fun!”), and I’m afraid that we horrified the poor organizer again – this time the EO took the stage with us at the performance that evening, as the “local tourist” facing the “Goth Island crew”. Sorry the only photo I can post is of me only! Hopefully there will be some shots on Cheyleydra’s site soon (currently the photos are of the 2010 show).
We stayed an extra two days, making it the first vacation we’ve had together in 2 years, since the EO was too sick to attend last year.
I’ve also finished the models for release at the Online Needlework Show, and there should be a third one released sometime in November. They’ll be available on the site for retail purchase as well as wholesale come December.
Yesterday my fall classes at SuperB’s gym in Coats, NC started. They are available on a drop-in basis as well, so if you’re interested and in the area, feel free to contact SuperB and come by! We’d love to see you. Next session of Fuquay-Varina classes start up again the last Thursday of this month.
And in my spare time, I’ve been stitching. Inspired a bit by the Daisychain ABCs, I designed my own alphabet based on an old Victorian letter, and have been stitching name signs. They are hand embroidered, then upholstered onto foam board with a felt backing and a ribbon hanger. They’ll be available in my Etsy store in the next week – and I’m more than happy to stitch custom names for you as well! There will be a pattern available for them soon as well, for us crafty-types who want to pick our own colors and stitch it ourselves!
