I could get a lot more done 'round here if life would stop getting in the way! Tried to upload pics for new Etsy stuff but can't find the cord I need. Can't work in the cave because children left unattended stop doing schoolwork and start tormenting each other. Must work on Jude's blanket but need to do laundry. So here's some more "Forbidden Broadway"! Because THAT I have managed to finish!

(sing along if you know "Spamalot"...)
I am not dead yet
I can dance and I can sing
I am not dead yet
I can do the Highland Fling!
I am not dead yet
No need to go to bed
No need to call the doctor
Cause I'm not yet dead!
Not that anyone in the blog-world missed me but I've had a busy few weeks. Here's an update: Jude is here! He arrived August 31st; gave his momma a hard time and had lots of prayers sent up for him but he is now thriving and quite beautiful. I hope to finish his blanket by next week. Or before he gets to college. Why isn't it done yet? Well...
Speaking of "Spamalot"... The new season is under way at our dear Little Theatre. Over the summer we went through a huge, expensive overhaul where we got new floors (they were sinking), seats curtains, paint, landscaping---oh, my! SO much work. But so worth it. The theatre is truly wonderful! The opening show is a musical called "Forbidden Broadway"; which parodies famous Broadway shows and performers. Very funny and we has such fabulous talent performing them-- it's one of the best shows I've had the pleasure of working on. Some of the costumes are true to the show and some are just plain silly but they're all great fun! And I had an actual co-costumer this time that did not disappoint! Since I don't know if she'd want her name on here I'll call her Ms. Awesome. She came through with great ideas, pieces, sewing work and stories. She has become a friend as well as a co-worker and I plan to call on her for fun and work as often as I can. The only drawback to Ms. Awesome is that she is a military wife which means she won't be here forever and I'll miss her very much. Which brings me to...
Had an unexpected trip up north. I wrote about my Father-in-Law's Heart attack/bypass several weeks ago. He's doing very well; home from rehab and feeling good. Number 1 daughter, 'A' wanted to see him, and her other Grandpa while she had some time free so we went for a quick visit. Honestly, I think the attack scared her a little and she just wanted to see her Grandparents before something else happens. She was a little wary of traveling with Kal-El by herself (her husband couldn't leave his new job). I was swamped with sewing, starting school, working at the theatre, and trying to re-open the Etsy store but, as my husband pointed out, this is one reason we homeschool. So off we went. It was a nice visit but I am still trying to catch up on school and house and laundry (oh, yes, the washer died for good right before we left) and, as is so often the case, the pleasure sewing must wait. Right now I plan to catch up on posts from all the lovely sewing/crafting blogs I follow, before another night of 'Forbidden Broadway'. And it's time to start work on the next show for the other theatre. And soccer season has started. And we'll be hosting Sunday night Bible study here. Oh and there's the Christmas program!
What's crazy is I actually have said 'no' this season to a few things. Oy!
