What did you do this weekend?
We sold popcorn
No photos, but we plunged toilets, we may need to talk to a plumber, or an exorcist, or check a county map and see if the whole Indian Burial Ground thing is under our home. Which would be way uncool. Jilly, we may need some help with some angry ancestors who have a thing against indoor heating/cooling and plumbing. Lame.
Oooh, I also snuck off to Stitching Memories' Open House with Pig 1. We briefly met
The Plucky Knitter! We met her, but not her yarn. But we will be meeting her yarn in the near future. SM will be carrying some of her hand dyed laceweight and sockweight in the shop in starting I believe on the 30th...hey, Happy Birthday to Me!!!
We also attended a swinging Fall Festival. Sadly, there were no Gold Fish to be won. As my buddy Deborah said "if you stink at throwing, you're not getting any candy." We had great dreams of taking over and making it an old school 70's style Fall Festival. But we will see how enthusiastic we feel next year this time. But come one, no Gold Fish? Weak.
Helping out the PTA, look. That's right, knitting, charity work, a "real" job, raising pigs, fighting the Epic Battle against Zombies (soon in sweet new boots), plus time to help the PTA, and do it in a kicky apron. Jealous? Pick one up at the Home Grange Swiss Steak Supper and Craft Bazaar, 1st Friday in December. Yeah, I'm sick of typing it too.
You let a Pig have candy and pizza for dinner and look what happens. He grows a mustache.
Look! My Ogre brought donuts as a reward for not burning down the house!!! I managed to not set the house on fire because I didn't cook the whole time he was gone. He should have dropped the Timbits off at the Pizza Place...
Wondering what beat my Midnight Tomato? Stupid Crochet baby set.
I think I lost by volume. If my sweater would have been long sleeved, I would have won. I think they may actually weigh the knit goods. I will test this theory next year by having the Pigs put more snot into next years project.
I'm so rotten, it was probably made by some sweet old lady. Oh, screw that. She's all sitting there with her scotch and her cigar guffawing about how well she fooled everyone and her sister bought this at a craft show in Maine and she entered it and doesn't care. Hey! Maybe it's future me!!! I hope I still have my sweet red boots!
No, really I've decided on co-ordinating crocheted bikini's for the New Bionic Women Sarah and Jamie. Yep, and then ask them to pose in them for a Grange celebrity fundraiser calendar.
Look! There's Jackie's scarf!! She also got 2nd place! But I bought her the yarn, so I sort of helped. My sari circle bag got nothing! Little do they know that the bag had like, uh, a lot of $$$ worth of yarn in it. But you know, and it's going to be for sale at the
Home Grange Swiss Steak Supper and Bazaar
December 7th 2007
It will be a good deal. I'm betting less than $20. I may also put the sweater in. Maybe my Tuscany Shawl also. It's for charity...
