Long Weekend....

Happy belated Memorial Day, folks! I hope you got some rest. :)

This latest fillet crochet was inspired by my best friend Jeremy. His love of cheese might be considered awkward by some, but I can't help but love him for it. :)

You can see the post for it on my Etsy shop here!

Happy Thursday, folks!

Fillet Schmillet!

I've been working on fillet crochet for a while now. I've come up with a couple of new pieces to put in my Etsy store and there's more on the way.

I had to take a couple days off from crochet because my shoulder and right arm have been developing some serious knots in them from working with such a tiny hook and thin, thin yarn. At the same time it's driving me bonkers to not be making something! Luckily my roommate likes to massage my shoulders and has been working the knots out. She's a good egg.

Anyhoo, I'm off to have dinner with a friend and enjoy the rest of this amazingly beautiful day!
Happy weekend, folks!

What a Loverly Surprise...

So, here I am, minding my own business, looking at crafty websites (like I do) and I decided to catch up on Mr. X's blog and low and behold I find THIS!

Woo hoooooo!

Dear Readers,

The past few weeks have been busy busy!

Last week I was cast in Point of Contention's The Wonder: A Woman Keeps a Secret. It's a Restoration comedy and I'm so excited to get to work on it. This will be my first play of that time period and...IT'S A FARCE! To top that off a bunch of my friends from the last show I worked on were cast as well. I don't know if I can even describe what a relief it is to know that I have a gig for the summer and that I get to work with such talented people...AGAIN!

Last week was also the first session of the Deadline Workshop I'm taking with four other Babes With Blades company members at the Chicago Dramatists. Basically, we're working with six playwrights who will each write a play with characters written for each of us. So, by the end of ten weeks there will be six new plays with characters written specifically for me. A couple of the other Babes described the workshop as Christmas every week. We had our second session this past Wednesday where we got to read the beginnings of the plays. Christmas totally came early. The most interesting part of the evening was learning what perceptions the playwrights had of us as actresses and how most of the plays have the same themes to them. I don't want to give too much away as we're performing staged readings of these plays at the end of June. I'm thrilled to see what direction these plays go.

And last, but not least, Macbeth is going AMAZINGLY well. The reviews have come in and so far it's a hit! We couldn't be more thrilled and I'm so proud of the work that is being done in this show. If you're in the Chicagoland area before May 30th you NEED to come check it out!

On that note, I have to get some Babes work done. :)
Happy Friday!
