spring cleaning....errr...

so i was 'sposed to do some spring cleaning all weekend, but what did i do???
you got it...i stitched all weekend long. Sublime Stitching is having a contest using the Mod patterns. Just what I needed to get me going. Should be done with it in the next few days!
Man, I would really love to win that contest. First prize gets their embroidery piece posted on the Sublime Stitching website 4evers and a $100 gift certificate! Wowzas!
oh, and I learned a new stitch. Bullion...kind of a pain. but looks neat.

so there was this Railroad Revival Tour that I went to in Austin, Texas on April 26, 2011. It was amazing! Old Crow Medicine Show, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Mumford & Sons. It really was truly amazing! What an absolutely wonderful time.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros were great! I've been listening to them for about a year now. Love their fun, fun music, and their spirit of love! :-)
and there was a wonderous sunset behind the crowd that had all the bands pointing and oo'ing and ah'ing.
there's that cloud! there's tons of pics of it on the interwebs.

Alexander...(aka Edward Sharpe) he loved being in the crowd. do you see my pretty "Lacey Lilac" fingernails??? I touched him. hahaha. :-)

There he is again. RIGHT THERE! so neat.

Alexander and Jade...singing the most lovely and cute song ever - "Home"

And next is a little video I took of "Home." Really wish I woulda got more of the song, but ya know, I hate to stand there recording half the time and I also wanted to save battery and room on my camera, and last but not least, I HAD TO DANCE! <3<3<3

i'll post some more about that lovely little concert getaway soon. i like reliving it!!


  1. ACK!!! I got to see a stop on the Railroad Revival too, I saw the show in San Pedro! It was awsome (mostly)!! Wow, you were up really close, good job!!

    Here's a link to my post about it, as you can see I was way far away from the stage...

    And here's a little something I stitched up for my friend as a thank you for letting me stay with her for my trip to So Cal. for the concert. I think you'll like this!

    Cheers, Carrie! I'm off to go watch your videos now!!

  2. sorry to hear about the crowd around you being so rude. that can really put a damper on a good time!
    cool that you went though. it was great. love mumford & sons, too. i'll be sure to post some extra pics of them for ya!
    we def got lucky, got there very early to get a good spot in line and lucked out with the people around us!
