Day 188

I am going away!!!

Woo Hoo!

I am going away to a cabin for some R&R ( or as I like to call it, "Working Without Kids, laundry, cooking, cleaning... and all that other jazz").

I will still be stitching and will post when I am back in a couple of days.

And no, this is not because "Club Awesome" tossed me out. I will be awesome all on my own. (Sniff, Sniff)

Day 187 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

It all came to a horrible end.

I was so excited to be a member of Club Awesome. I told a friend and brought him to the Club.

"The Big Guy"  (aka Daddy) was not well received.

Apparently I was unaware of the "NO BOYS EVER" rule .

That was it.

I was out.

"The Big Guy" let me know that he thinks I am still awesome. That's enough for me.

Day 186 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

Today they made the announcement.

Bugsy and Shorty came out of the Clubhouse and the little guy said. "Your in."

Then I made the fateful error that was to end my new 'Awesome' status...

I brought something into the club house that was to end it all....

Day 185 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

After receiving my tips from "Shorty" I approach "Bugsy"...

"I have been working on being awesome and I think I am ready to be apart of the Club ".

I can't read her reaction.

She says she needs to go to bed. She let's me know that her and "Shorty" will let me know soon.
They need to "sleep on it" before they make their final decision.

Day 184 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

"Shorty" let's me know that not everyone can be in Club Awesome. I ask what I need to do. She says I need to work on being "cool". She says she can teach me.

I'm in.

I want to be cool.

I want in this club.

Day 183 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

I size these two up and decide to approach the little guy. Shorty lets me know that not just everyone can come to "Club Awesome".

Day 182 (I Pledge to be Awesome)

My girls have a playhouse in the back yard that they have neglected for over a year. But since the warm weather it has become the hang out spot for them and their little school bus buddies.

Suspicion began to arose when every 5 minutes a new kid was coming in asking me for tape, crayons, fabric, flowers, a radio and of course... crackers and  cheese.

So I was curious...

I went outside went to the playhouse and entered.

There is a "Club Awesome" in my own back yard and I wasn't told about it???

I sought out who I need to speak to and was introduced to these two....

The one in the yellow is "Shorty" the one in the orange "Bugsy or Bugaboo".

Day 172 (I've got the Music in Me)

Anyone coming to my house will sometime be subject to our dance parties. We all get down and show our new moves we have been working on.

Someone will mention they want to hear a certain song.

That song will be played

... and the dance party begins.

Day 171 (I've Got the Music in Me Week)

My father was a huge music fan. He introduced me to Lou Reed, Neil Young, The Rolling Stones... to many to mention.

His Vinyl collection was very precious to him. He didn't like us playing his records if he wasn't around. His one big No No was that you never drop a needle to play one song. You play the album all the way through.

Day 170 (I've Got the Music in Me Week)

Just picked up new headphones yesterday.

Headphones + vinyl + turntable = Heaven

Pattern is available in shop!

Day 169 (I've Got the Music in Me Week)

Best music ever is the one you play when you are getting ready to go out on a Friday night....

(These days  though, I am a fan of the Friday-night-staying-in-embroidering-soundtrack...if you are too the pattern is available in shop!)

Day 168 (I've Got the Music in Me Week)

So that wasn't the end. My father decided to hire someone to come to our "smoke free" home to help me with my strumming.

I remember her looking a little like Tammy Faye Baker and making off with the family coin collection.

I do not remember however, any chords she taught me.

Don't know a way to segue this....but the pattern is available in the shop.

Day 167 (I've Got the Music in Me Week) Pattern available in shop!

I love music. But unfortunately I am not musically inclined. I have tried various instruments but with no success.

My first guitar teacher liked to smoke his sweetly scented hand rolled cigarettes during our lesson. I didn't mind but my father did not think this was appropriate ( might have had something to be with me being 10 years old at the time). I never learned the guitar from this boy but always quite relaxed and a bit giddy after my lessons.

I am so excited to offer the pattern for sale in the shop today!

Thank you once again to my friend and muse, the lovely (A Girl Named) Astrid for for posing for this weeks theme!

day 163 (Arrested Development Week)

I don't know why but this one took forever. At least I had Will's grin to keep me company.
