After an exciting season, Guard is over and I get to concentrate on sewing again.
The girls took thier show on the road, and I went too... to Dayton, Ohio for the Winter Guard International World Championships! It was a great trip with the girls competing well in a class up from where they started the year. They got bumped up mid season, penalized for doing well.... but this parent is not bitter :) They got lots of possitive feedback on thier exciting and entergetic show... and .. guess who I saw at one of thier performances?
Yep! I saw Jay McCarroll! Star of Project Runway and creator of several fabric lines... including what seems to be everyones favorite this year, Habitat. And yes, I was stalker fan girl... totally cool when he was 2 feet from me, then giggling when I got back saying 'guess who I saw, guess who I saw'.... unfortunatly none of the other parents or girls had a clue who I was talking about.... except our dirrector who responded with, ' Jay, oh, he's my friend, I marched with him'....
WHAT? yep, look at the bio, Jay is a marching band geek! Who knew?
I am working on a WIP that is about an year old... I WILL have it done to share somewhere on Friday.... with no flags and shows I have all this spare time :)
