Unfortunately the performance of an ancient Greek tragedy was thwarted by The Man. But fun, as always, was still had by all!

Labia Is Already Plural

November Craft Conspiracy went off without a hitch. And... drum roll please.... everyone* went home with a completed craft! We're really stepping things up around here folks. We made these little zipper flower pins, ate lasagna, and drank mulled wine. Yum! While Gretchen was explaining to us how to do the "outer petals" and "inner petals" of our pins, our minds went to the obvious. And soon the phrase "Labia is already plural!" was being snapped at Anna when she used the word "labias". Good times.

* sans one.

Crafter Wins Best Costume!

Since I was on a roll from the felted wool octopus, I whipped together this Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas costume. I took a few dresses and sweaters and scraps and cut them up, machine sewed them together, then hand stitched yarn stitching all over. I even stitched up the tights and gloves. Throw on some makeup and a wig and we're good to go. And I won best costume! Yay!

Crafter Actually Finishes Craft!

So last month's craft conspiracy was great. The theme was wool felted stuffed animals. A few of the ladies went to Mexico this summer and bought a bunch of animals and thought we could make our own. The meeting was very typical... ladies drinking wine and eating cheese and hardly crafting. But, we did have a few surprises. For one, a male showed up! Though he was warmly welcomed, we quickly scared him off. Another surprise is that this crafter actually finshed a craft*! It's been a long time.

* crafting not actually finished at the meeting, but a few days later while watching football on the couch.

Baby quilt made from Denyse Schmidt prints

I have a couple of weeks off before school starts up again, so I hope to spend some creative time in the Sky Lounge. First on my list was a little quilt for my niece, who was born Dec. 21.

November Conspiracy

As usual, snazzy things made, wine consumed, food eaten. Many thanks to the kind ladies who helped me with the legal pad dress! Good sports, you. I never would have finished it otherwise.

My to-do lists are now woven into a bodice. jL's dress is fantastic, but as usual, we totally dropped the ball on pictures. Will post pictures when the dresses are done on Saturday.

Summ even stopped in for a few minutes of knitting and racy conversation but then ditched us to go on a hot date.
