Let's do the time warp again.

It's been more than 2 months since my last post so I feel like I have a ton of stuff to share. Let's go in order of relevance for now and then maybe in another post we'll have time to reminisce about the Summer months that just flew past, am I right?

First of all, we moved to Pittsburgh two months ago as you know. This is what my street looked like yesterday afternoon, what's going on in your neighborhood these days? Pretty much constant sirens and helicopters yesterday and today. Yesterday saw 5 unmarked vans loaded with police in riot gear drive past my house. That doesn't happen everyday does it? So far the actually impact on us is a day off of school today.

Next on the list: Crafty Bastards. I can't believe I haven't gotten to share my excitement about being accepted this year. I'm very excited and somewhat terrified to be part of my first big outdoor craft show- and in D.C no less! I've sort of put cleaning and unpacking this house aside while I prepare for the show. I've been a knitting machine lately. I have a bunch of new sweaters, hoods, hats, and hopefully I'll get some sewing done this weekend too. I've spent a ton of time thinking about my booth layout so hopefully it won't disappoint the shoppers next weekend. By the way, go to their website and vote me Craftiest Bastard and I'll be eternally grateful to you.

I've set up my working area a little bit. Unfortunately it's in my bedroom temporarily as the girls bedroom is under construction so they are occupying my Lumpkin space for the time being. It's really not too bad- brightest room in the house that's for sure!

Well I'd better get back to work.
I'll try to post again next week and we can get all caught up.
