Yesterday I had some fun! A couple months ago Hubby and I answered a casting call for a new movie (Alone Yet Not Alone due out latee 2011) being filmed at Explore Park, our old playground...that we hope will come alive again after all this.

I GOT THE CALL!!! So, after doing the essential job at the library I headed on out to the park...and along the way the view was fantastic!

Then the WOW factor hit...the upper parking lot to Explore Park was FULL--like I haven't seen it in quite some time!

I reported to the staff...was logged in...sent to wardrobe (of course I came with my own)...and then to make-up--to get "dirt" & hair. Upon receiving the call I was told that we'd be portraying 1760 Philadelphians. Now, I have NO fancy clothes since Hubby and I only portray pioneers (1750-77)--so, I started to panic. Oh, I know they have wardrobe but I really wanted to wear my clothes. (note to self--time to make fancy clothes) I took the best outfit I own and the rest of my clothes. The costume director didn't like my best, saying it looked too good! Good thing I brought the other things...the ratty clothes I wear for dyeing demos & cooking!

Will anybody recognize me??

We filmed in front of a "green screen" which should make the final product interesting. I'm very anxious to see how it all comes together. I'll keep you posted as more info becomes available with the movie.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

Whiskers on Wednesday--Dogs on Thursday Combo

I got in trouble for this photo! Mr Ace doesn't want anyone knowing he really likes his canine brother...but getting a picture is just too hard, when the opportunity arises and Ace doesn't run before I can get the lens cap off the camera I have to grab it!

Rudy looks worried huh?

OH and.....Happy Birthday Julia!!!!

Just a Small Space

Look at the new "Runners Corner" I made in my new fiber room!!

I saved the sign that my buddies Pam, Nikki, Steph & Dani brought to my first ever race! AND...for some crazy reason all my running shoes that have been retired! Yeah...I'm a packrat!

Start Your Engines!

(I know...I's been a month. Finding time for blogging is getting harder and harder)

Oh...about the title---Start your engines and heat to the nearest Goodwill! A friend posted a project idea and I couldn't resist! I LOVE this pumpkin!

(Thanks Jenn!!)

I happened to have a sweater in the "going to Goodwill" pile. Boy, I grabbed that sucker out quick when I saw this craft idea. It's so quick and easy, I want to make another. Gee, I guess I better get to Goodwill before everybody else does!

One more picture with my favorite model...

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!
