A New Endeavor!

Dear Readers,

I'm pleased to announce that I am the new managing director for the Focal Point Theatre Company here in Chicago.! :)

One of my best friends and I have been talking about starting our own company for a couple of years now and this is the year we're making it happen. We're about to go into rehearsals for our inaugural production of David Ives' All in the Timing. All the proceeds will go towards applying for our 501c3. If you're in the area the week of June 23-26th please come visit us at the historic Flat Iron Building in Wicker Park.

We'll soon have a blog up and running, but for the mean time please check out our new website: We're also on Facebook, so please become our friend!

Woo hoo!

Threadknits Winner!

Dear Readers...

I won! I found out over the weekend that I won 2nd place for crochet in the Threadknits contest hosted by Threadless Shirts!

You can see all the winners here!

I'm super excited that my zombie suit won. He was a labor of love (with an emphasis on the labor).

My last Threadknits submission

Congrats to all the winners! Woo hoo!

Espresso and a New Series

There is nothing quite like spending a sunny afternoon embroidering to your heart's content with a side of espresso readily available.

I've started a new embroidery series. Basically, I'll be taking images of nature from illustrated dictionaries and such and couple them with lyrics from rock songs.

This little guy is a Fire Weaver and his lyric will be "I'm a breathing time machine" -The Avett Brothers.

We're Open and the Reviews Are In!

Dear Readers,

Vanishing Points is open and our first weekend went smashingly! With that said...I'm so happy to have a couple days off! We went through tech and dress rehearsals for almost two weeks straight and I. Am. POOPED.

Luckily, we're getting some good reviews. Yay for hard work paying off!
