Ashley and Darrin are off to San Diego! We were all up at 3:00 this morning (which delighted the kitties, they always think we do it just for them) and at the airport by 4:00. I imagine they're in Atlanta by now, waiting for the flight west. They'll be in San Diego at 9:30 local time and will hook up with the 3 friends who do this trek with them every year. All of them are hard-core pop culture lovers - one of them, Mike Schiffbauer, is actually a well-known costume artist/maker and will be on the Cosplay panel again this year. Awesome stuff.
I'll be watching the specials on TV, you never know when you'll see someone you love!
As usual, I made themed gifts for their trip - this year it's the Walking Dead! I found some incredible fabric by Robert Kirkman for Springs Creative Products Group. If you can't live without it, it's still available on Fabric.com:
For Darrin, some knock-em dead PJ bottoms...
And for Ashley, a sling bag...how cute is this!
|Inside - with a chain link motif of course|
The kitties and I have the house to ourselves for a week. There will lots of sewing and knitting going on, two things they really enjoy. Even though I didn't bring my serger, which is Nikita's favorite machine. I guess she'll have to content herself with rearranging my SM thread every night and knocking all my little things on the floor.
Parting shot: that crazy buck full moon, taken Monday night. I only got one mosquito buzz in my ear, not bad for this time of year.
