August is almost over so I'll sneak in one post to finish out this nutty summer. No pictures yet from "Midsummer" but I did snag one group shot from "Rent":
That's the whole cast; each had a few changes and you can tell it was mostly found, borrowed and thrifted type costumes. The only sewing for Rent was Angel's Santa coat and I'm still trying to steal a photo of that.
Did the one camp week but it wasn't the usual I've done for the past few years. This year I worked the session that focuses on using music and drama to worship. It was a new experience and, well, that's all I'm going to say about that.
Working on "9-5" has been a blast. It opens in just under two weeks and costume deadline is approaching quickly. Hope to be done by Thursday. We shall see.
Because I didn't have enough going on, I signed up for a 'quick' applique coaster swap through the Quilting Gallery. My little bugs are heading out to Tazmania today! And, no, no picture. During the last visit, Leia though it would be fun to dip Nannie's camera in some iced tea. So, a camera is on the birthday request list. I did take a picture with my phone but it will require my son or a miracle to figure out how to get the picture from the phone to the computer. Neither the phone or myself are "smart".
Speaking of Leia, have I shown off the kidlets this summer?
This is at Roanoke Sound-- my new favorite place to chill. I'm not a beach person, but I love going here. When I win the lottery-- which is difficult because I don't play much -- I'm going to buy a house on the Outer Banks. And when a hurricane takes it I'll just have to buy another one.
I did want to share this one. One week, both Philip and Jacie were away at camp so Kal-El came for his first 'days away' visit with us. It was such a wonderful time. Just us without the usual havoc of the quick visits. It was the longest Kal has been away from his sister and when they reunited at a church service they couldn't stop hugging each other. Ashley tells me that when they got home Leia took Kal by the hand and led him around the house, showing him everything she had played with while he was gone!
Number Three (nicknamed "Stormy" since they don't want to know who it is until he/she arrives) is about 9 weeks out. The 'what kind of quilt do you make when you don't know who it is?" question was answered when Ashley asked for a Sesame Street theme. I can do that. Eventually.
Next update will probably be after 9-5 opens. Life should slow down a little then. Right?
