My sweet nephew Charlie that is. I figure I am about due for another post. Been about a month. How did I get to be that kind of blogger? I would love to be able to sew and blog a bit over the holidays. Keep your finger crossed for me will ya? The gallery show was fab. I hope to get a few of those shots up on flickr soon. There was wine, cheese, chocolate, and art. Oh and did I mention the live music? We had a great time. I felt a bit out of my league. The other three artists were art and photography professors at the University of Kansas! And I am a mom from Topeka. Geeeez.

I was truly blessed today by a dear friend who took me flying. He called to see if I wanted to go to lunch...in southern Kansas. I said YES of course. We made the same trip a few weeks ago and I forgot my camera. I wouldn't make the same mistake twice. (more pics on flickr by the way). Ever since I was little I have loved to fly. The feeling of soaring above it all. Free. No phones. No email. Just sky. It helps that Beaumont Kansas doesn't have a cell tower! Or a paved landing strip. You land on a grass strip and taxi down a public street to a quaint little hotel and restaurant. A little town stopped in time.

Life around here is back to normal. Normal being a very VERY relative term. Thank you all so very much for your kind words for my friend. She did pass away on September 11 after a long and courageous fight. Your prayers and thoughts were definitely felt around here. Please continue to keep her husband and two small children in your thoughts as they transition into a new and scary life without mom and wife.

And so is this gal! Me and my gals, along with a few friends had the absolute pleasure of seeing her dance on Saturday night. And let me tell you, she is really really good!! Lori, I am totally in awe! She said after the show that belly dancing is what ballerinas do when they get old (did I say that right lori?). I don't know about that, but this old ballerina is ready to GO! However the world may not be ready to see anything that has to do with this post-three-kids-and-a-few-too-many-donuts belly I got going on. I'm afraid it may keep dancing when the rest of me has stopped. If you live in the Lawrence KC ish area and missed this you really did miss something great.

There is an awful lot of new around here these days. A new friend was born early this morning. A dear sweet soul who came into this world after a long and emotional year for her parents. So sweet. So perfect. So pure. Welcome dear friend.

The Wise 5 are all heading to different places this weekend. Miss Mo is spending 4 days with my sis in KC. Little man is having a sleep over with a friend (his first one). Abby and I are heading to Wisconsin for a few days. Talk about planning!!! Its hard enough getting everyone ready to go out of town, but trying to get everyone organized to go different places? I don't suggest it. Stupid stuff. Like we all use the same toothpaste. I had to go out and buy 3 more tubes! And brushes? And shampoo? Permission for treatment in case of emergency forms. Snuggly bears and blankets. Good golly miss molly. When it comes right down to it I don't like leaving any of my kids. Lots of kisses this morning. I plan on enjoying that part for as long as I can!

Above is a bit bigger project. Soon it will be the red heads new bedspread. Its simple and pink. Just the way she likes it. If only I were sewing it as fast as she would like. So here's to some renewed crafting. I am a MUCH happier person when my sewing machine is humming and my children are not staging some sort of a mutiny. Aren't we all?

I pretty much love putting fabric on my walls. Any excuse to use my favorite fabrics is usually okay with me. But this was too easy. Almost too easy to call it a craft. But I love the way they turned out. Here's how:

The past two weeks have been full of tights, ballet shoes, and leos over here. I know that's pretty standard here in the Wise house, but the past few weeks have been a flurry. See if you can follow this. Morgan has had a dance camp for 3 hours 5 days a week. Abby has had a workshop for the same amount of time These times run back to back. So 6 hours. Abby has another week of her workshop. Both girls have 4 weeks of classes in the evening, Monday and Wednesday. Abby helps with a class on those days as well. That adds up to 34 hours a week. Anyone wanna know what we have been up to? Yeah. That's about it. The pi above is of Miss Mo during her presentation. She did such an amazing job! A few more weeks to go. Then no more stinky tights for a month and a half! Hooray!
