We’re in the process of bouncing back here at the Lang household. Tim was really sick all last week and then Oscar caught it. He woke up every 15 minutes from 8 – 3am on Thursday night. Very well timed because the next day we had to get up at the crack of dawn and start out on an 8 hour car trip to Duluth MN for a memorial service. After 16 hours in the car in 3 days we are wiped out. Luckily we were stopped in our tracks last night by a new channel on our cable, onDemand, including HBO onDemand. Instead of cleaning, unpacking, cooking, etc. we ordered a pizza and watched way too many hours of Larry David and Sex and the City.
Today everyone is better and it’s time to get organized and back on track. I have a very long list of fun projects I want to work on this week including another kitty in a dress I dreamed up on the drive. I hope I can make it as cute as it looks in my head.
All the Fall foliage we saw on the trip somewhat softens the blow of coming home to find all the beautiful yellow leaves on the tree outside our window had fallen off. Somewhat.
Here’s something beautiful to look at… Caroline Hwang. I love love her work. This is the kind of art I wish I could make. I love the collage/quilting influences and the embroidery and buttons! And check out the bags in her store – this is what I aspire to!
oh, and I found this show on her info page.. Plushtastrophe. I wish I could go to that! I’ll have to try to hunt down some photos from the exhibit when I have more time.
