It was a crazy flight back to the states last month too. It was my first solo flight with Clarice and I wish I could say it passed uneventfully but no such luck. We made the flight just fine until we landed that is......we were stuck on the tarmac because the flight was early and there was another plane still at our gate. We're just sitting there waiting when suddenly I smell something....oh no, she didn't???? Yes guys and gals, she did and it smelled to high heaven. I forgot to take her food away the night before and in her defense, she had been in the carrier for 15 hours at this point so who could blame her really. I apologized to everyone sitting around us, tried stuffing her bedding into a barf baggie and clean her up a little. It was terrible because everything I tried to do was useless and I still had to drag her thru customs, immigration and of yea, the airport in general so poor little girl. I took her into the bathroom and gave her a quick sink bath before we got into the car with Morgan and Donna for the final leg home. After we got home it was a long, hot shower for both of us then a nice long snooze because we were both worn out.
I have been promising pictures from Switzerland and Carnival along with stories but I'm not sure I can do them any justice. It was just an amazing adventure and just too unreal for words. It's such a family event unlike New Orleans and they start planning the costumes as soon as the event is over.
Now to my stitching finishes. I actually finished the E Cunningham by Blackbird Designs before Christmas to honor my friend's mother, Joyce Weatherford as a gift for her. But I didn't get to see her when I was home so I couldn't post it until I was able to surprise her with it. I found the most awesome gold, vintage frame to put it into but I forgot to take a picture of it. I'll have to ask her to send me one.
And finally my last finish is My Valentine by Blackbird Designs but I still need to personalize it. I just can't decide who to honor with this one.
