Jo and I are finally down to the final legs of the Garden Spot Sampler SAL now. I think it is really starting to come together beautifully. Initially, I did not care for the VC silk conversion, but now as it is coming together it is looking much better... We should be done with this this month at this rate, don't you think Jo? Then we can start our Paradigm Lost SAL! Yes!
Time to share a family photo :-) This one was taken outside of Longhorn Steak House after our large meal that followed the dance recital on Sunday, June 4th... From left to right: Andre, my SIL's brother; Erin, my niece - still in costume from her cheerleading themed tap dance routine; Nicole, my middle niece who quit dance a couple of years ago; Ruth, my mother; Renee, my SIL; Scott, my brother; and in the back... me (I was kind of hiding!). Mike took the photo, and Caitlin had already been driven back up to the high school as she was also to dance in the evening performance... she wasn't much in the mood to talk or be with adults that day anyhow, she was just dying to get back to her friends (age 17, who is surprised?? LOL).
And, here is a photo Mike took of Nicole and I outside of the dance recital that I am rather fond of... Nicole and I are most alike in personality in the family, even though she is the one niece that physically takes after her mother's side of the family. I can even get her to pick up a needle once in a while! The black hair, however, is an adolescent experiment from a dye bottle... we figure it is better than a tattoo!
It's New DVD Release Tuesday, of course - our new ones are Underworld: Evolution (for Mike) and Firewall (mostly for me)...
