Ohhh, we made it! You just wouldn't believe the trip to Atlanta, it rained and it rained and it rained. Once we made it to Chattanooga I called my darling Chris and whined over the phone about the rain and ohmyGod we are going to have to sit outside in the rain. . . well, he proceeded to calm me down and Caryn and I continued on. . . at one point I was sure we were going to die as a FedEx truck flew through the standing water on the roads and completed obliterated my field of vision. Going 60 mph and not having a clue of the road or where the other cars went kinda makes Mom (me) nervous. Caryn says I looked like we had just flown over the mountain top! Kinda white and pasty you know. . . I don't do heights very well. All of this to say, that the concert was rockin' and Tom Petty (and the Heartbreakers, too) are just awesome. His voice was amazingly the same as when I was my daughter's age. . . man, I wish I were aging so well! The rain stopped it warmed up and all was well with the world again. I only got turned around once, and beeped at once, so I guess it was all worth it!
My sister (hi, Donna!) went to the Dakota's and the Badlands this past summer, and bought me this great gift:
Isn't it just beautiful? I think she said it's made of mammoth tusk? I don't really remember, maybe she will post in the comments for me (hint, hint)!
And here is the entire wall:Sorry about the light's pull chain in the picture, I just couldn't get it cropped out!
I also got a swatch done in the Elektra: One dark:One light: But both the same swatch - Using size seven needles - and I am writing the pattern for the vest as I go -
So, it's been busy and now I am collapsing. Took my MS meds last night and they tend to make me kinda sick (which is why I waited till we got back from the Great Adventure to take it) so, I'm back to the couch -
