If You Came Looking . . .

for a little Comfort & Joy (the posting of the next section of the BOM quilt, that is), well it's not exactly done yet.

But I'm working on it!  Can you come back in a couple days?  I should have it done soon.

But if you came looking to see what the T-shirt "clue" is for my firm's annual mystery event, you came to the right place!

We think we'll be spending time bowling and doing something that involves a train.  There are lots of trains in the area, from tiny kids' train rides to large, passenger (and freight) trains.  My friend Missy, who does much of the planning and arranging of these things, told me they're loading all of us onto the nearest light rail transit.  I'm pretty sure she was joking.

By the way, do you remember the last time I went bowling?  It was last December.  It was girls' night out, and I thought I'd torn a hamstring or something, and it was a few days before I could walk fairly normally again.  (And then I came down with the flu.  Good times.)  I just need to remember to limber up a bit this time.  Heavy drinking might help--after all, don't they say that drunks often don't get injured in accidents because they're so relaxed?

In preparation, I spent some quality time tonight with my scissors and ribbons, doing a little T-shirt surgery.  (Probably why I didn't get a little further on Comfort & Joy.)  I'm planning to wear a camisole/tank top under it, so there shouldn't be any wardrobe malfunctions while I'm bending over and tossing out the bowling ball.

Can you stand another wedding photo?

Soccer Son came by today with the photos taken by one of the photographers.  By the way, they made a really cool decision when it came to wedding photographers.  Soccer Son knew a soccer mom/sports photographer whose kid he's trained before, so he bartered some training for photography.  Then they found another photographer who also came and took photos.  Neither photographer had experience taking wedding photos, but then they didn't really want that kind of formal photography anyway.  In addition, they placed disposable cameras at each table.  For a fraction of the cost of a "real" wedding photographer,  I think they're going to end up with some terrific photos!  I just love this one, don't you?

Anyway, barring any type of injury, drunkenness, incarceration, or downright exhaustion, I'll be back tomorrow night to tell you how the mystery event went.  Wish me luck, and I'll "see" you then!

Love the photo. We also did the disposable cameras on the table for one wedding, and we got some great photos. Can't wait to hear about your train/bowling experience. Have fun!

I love what you did with the t-shirt! Maybe you can show more pictures and have a tutorial.

I did come looking for Comfort and Joy. Your post comment is funny. I barely got my section done in time. I had the applique done but had not done the pieced blocks. Finished last evening.

That is a great wedding picture. I don't know when the last time I went bowling, sounds like fun. Enjoy the day. Thanks for sharing.
