I am back from New Orleans. We had so much fun! We attended the Witching Hour Ball at the Howling Wolf in New Orleans. It was fun! It was so interesting to see how people really get into the whole vampire/Anne Rice books and spend a lot of time and money on their costumes. I don't have many pictures (I was busy drinking and having fun!) but here are a few of me and my friends dressed up! There are more, but they are on my friend's camera! We also went out on Bourbon Street and ended up at the Piano Bar of Pat O's! Always a good time with singing and drinking Fuzzy Leprechauns! It was overall a very good way to celebrate Halloween!

I am getting ready to kit up my next project, which is the Iris Keeper Storykeep (last picture). I am going to be doing it on the fabric that I also have pictured here. Unfortunately it didn't photograph well!
It is currently monsooning here as we have a cold front coming through so I couldn't get my lighting right! But I wanted to get this post up as quickly as possible instead of waiting till it was a better day to take pictures!!!
I also still have The Kiss I am working on. I haven't touched it since the last time I posted progress on it as I have been so busy with work, play, and working on Amore! I may try to put aside one day this week though to work some more on it! It's ok though. My friend doesn't expect it for at least another 5 years or so!!! LOL!
I recently received a RAK of the Queen of Hearts chart from HAED. I am looking forward to starting on that one. I will probably work on kitting it up first. I will have to check out Sugar Maple Fabrics to see what would look good with it!

Saturday I ended up having lunch with some friends who came into town for the LSU game. Which I didn't mind. One of them was a friend I hadn't seen in a couple of years so it was good to catch up! After lunch, I ran by my parents house where I got a phone call from another friend saying that she had gotten tickets to the LSU game and did I want to go? Of course I wanted to go! So off to campus for the game which didn't start till 8 p.m. It was nice though because we caught up with my other friends from out of town and I was able to spend some more time with them!
So since I wasn't home Saturday, that meant that today, Sunday, my lazy day was anything but! I had to finish laundry, do some household chores, etc. I was able to work some on my current project, Amore. I am hoping to have a FINISH picture this week. I am very close! Less than 200 stitches.
It will be an early night tonight to get ready for the week. But my plans for the week do include pictures of a completed project and a start to my next one. Plus maybe some additional ones of other projects that are currently ongoing!

Just got back from my trip to Point Clear, Alabama. We stayed at the Grand Marriott. This place is beautiful! Did not want to come back! This is an absolutely beautiful resort! It has a beach area, a huge pool, boardwalk all along the property so you can walk or bike by the water, go sailing, so much that we couldn't even begin to enjoy anything as we were in class! The rooms are heavenly. I can't wait to go back!
