The camera charger remains in hiding so I don't have a stitching photo to share so while sorting through the picture archives I realized that in 6 weeks and a day I'll be heading back for a brief stay at my favorite vacation spot (except for those requiring a passport, cruise ship or my niece Kelly) in the whole world...Universal Studios in Florida. Ohboyohboyohboy...

My internet adventures began when my roommate bought a PC in the mid-90s (yeah, I seem to start everything later than everyone else...what's your point?) I typed Teresa Wentzler (she who makes color do magic things as near as I can tell) in the AOL search box and fell into bulletin boards and the cyber-community of stitchers. What fun! People were stitching all over the place! I even de-lurked every now and then. And I'm fairly certain that stitcher's blogs brought me to blogs in general. After months of reading and watching people's progress on their assorted projects, it occurred to me that maybe all I needed to actually make some stitching (or knitting or tatting or sewing or insert hobby/task ) progress is to make myself accountable. Publicly so. Neat. I'll start blogging too. A year or so later, I decided that it really didn't matter what I named the blog, the writing was the thing so just get on with it already. So now three or four months after finally starting a blog, I'm well on my way to being the same type of blogger that I am stitcher (knitter, tatter, seamsress etc) - too casual to accomplish anything so I'm starting today to make myself more accountable. The only problem is that my camera battery is dead, the spare battery is hiding in the wilds of my belongings along with the charging cradle. So I don't have any photos of my works, but I do have a photo of a box of goodies I received in an exchange from Carol. Ok, now I've forgotten how to add photos... brb... Ok, got it.
Tomorrow, assuming that tonight I find the spare camera battery or the charging cradle, I'll start the being accountable part of being a stitching blogger...

Amy, Kim & Mike on Dr Doom's (No) Fear Fall...no really, it's them, but the zoomed version wouldn't save very well.
Recovering at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville - shortly after the volcano blew - which I'm guessing is why the camera was focused on Mike's glass rather than us. Of course, this was post margaritas so maybe we really were that blurry.
Well...in another 5 or 6 months I hope there will be another installment of Judy goes to Orlando to share with y'all...
You might want to think twice after asking Mike & Amy for directions...
Dodging rain brought my peeps - Mike, Kim & Amy - to the Caro-Suess-el

Tuesday was road trip day. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, The Yarn Harlot came to Charlotte (I've seen several poetical nods around the internets to the Harlot in Charlotte) to promote her new book and Lqisa and I went up to hear her talk and pick up a book or three. Everything I've read about her was right on the money! She's an engaging speaker, not only witty and droll but thoughtful too. And she's charming as well - makes time to speak to everyone getting books signed, takes a photo with everyone who asks, makes an appropriate fuss over the babies in attendance, takes some photos for her blog and then gets the names and appropriate links all matched up - and then actually posts to the blog without the traditional (at least it is around here) 5-7 day gap! If she comes to your town, go see her! Be sure to take your knitting, she especially likes to see first sock attempts (and FOs too) and while the whole rest of the crowd knits away the waiting time, you'll have something to do (unlike a certain couple of SC road trippers who showed up empty-handed).
The next countdown is on now for this weekend - only barely 1 day's work left and then we (Amy, Kim and I) hit the road for Orlando and until Tuesday next week it's all about margaritas, Mardi Gras (a little late) at Universal, margaritas, Universal rides and fun and - yep, you guessed it - more margaritas...
