Howdy - it's been awhile! I finally finished my 8 weeks to do a bunch of teaching and be co-director of an actual class, so that explains the absence. I've been continuing to pump out cotton dishrags for people, and here's one of those:
And I was pining for a camping trip, so I emailed Drew to see if he and his friends were up for it if I came up and paid for the sites, but I never heard back from him. Dean and Lucas weren't feeling it either, and they went out of town while I was on call one weekend, so I set this up in about 30 minutes and camped my DAMN self!
Check out the pleading look on this face. Even Jake abandoned me, because it was about 45 degrees and he's a'skeered at things that make noise at night, so I let him sleep in Lucas's room while I slept in a sleeping bag on an egg crate (no air mattress for me, no sir).
Now the next weekend, I went to Auburn for a work trip, and took Drew out for dinner with his friends, plus bought him some groceries, and would you believe they have THESE at Walmart? (I only heard of this through Heidi, of Mobile Yarn.)
But the more interesting thing was what he and his friends talked about at dinner, which was that they were doing THIS for the weekend:
Are you kidding me?! I guess it's not cool to camp with your mom in tow, and I'm glad they went camping - 3 Eagle Scouts - but it hurt just a little. At any rate, the rest of us left him here and went to Belize for Lucas's Spring Break, so there! Here are a few pics of that:
And back home (after a painful return trip getting stuck in Houston overnight following an aborted takeoff - THAT's fun!), I had an urge to make an AC Tshirt. Our local NBC anchor wore a dress that was pink with yellow showing through cutouts that reminded me of AC, so that sent me upstairs looking for the right Tshirts. This is what I found, a heathered gray Gators shirt, and the remnants of a blue shirt I used earlier for the crocheted bathroom rug.
I drew a couple of ideas from polka dots to the Alabama Chanin spirals, and pored through all her books, then decided on daisies, which I found on Google. All my airbrushing stuff and other stencils are at the beach, so Lucas loaned me an Exacto knife and I cut one daisy out of a coffee box.
At first I was planning an all-over pattern, but then I decided on a cluster over the right shoulder.
Maybe I'll put a few on the opposite hip, too. I'll let ya' know how it turns out!
So whatchoo been up to? Got big plans for the summer? Wanna get together and airbrush some cotton?!
