Christmas in July!

I was show-shopping (again) -and this is what I saw. Yes, that’s right! Christmas fabric! “Christmas in July,” as they like to say – and if you want to be politically correct – it is Christma-hannu-kwanzu-kah in July! (Oh! and Ramadan falls somewhere in that time frame, but I haven’t quite figured out how to get that in there yet)


As you know – my July 4th was a bit sad. Thank you everyone for your sympathy and shared pain. I know that getting wrapped up in sports can be silly – but every once in awhile you have to believe that your favorite team is going to win something amazing. And this is only every four years – unlike American football’s Superbowl or the Baseball World Series (which as a cubs fan, is well, never quite …yeah, won’t go there – too much sports sadness for one summer). With all the craziness in the world – it is nice to get wrapped up in something as simple as Football (Soccer).

My show is opening this weekend – so if you are in the DC area…enter shameless plug here…check it out. And if you are 4 – 8 years old, you will really like it  Children’s theatre after all…

Finally, getting back to some sewing for me and knitting too. I am officially out of the knitting world cup – like my team I have been knocked out, but I do not think that I will even make it to the final round for an attempt at third place. With the show and the not sleeping there has also been the not knitting – but I have the weekend off and Monday too! Better late than never! Hopefully there will be sleeves then for me to show you. Fritz is going away for a few days and he is taking the laptop with, so if I probably won’t be able to post until Tuesday (after work hours of course).

Have a lovely weekend – and maybe if you are in New Jersey – the beaches will be open…

I love this post - fabric,knitting, Christmas, the theatre! My life on someone else's page! The show looks great - I wish my sister still lived in MD - I'd hop on over! We open our season with Discover Theatre, who do their tech rehearsals with us. Our site isn't quite finished yet, but stop on by anyway!
