The Caped Crusader

Friday night, DH and his BBF (Best Bro Friend) went to a local outdoor event to listen to a band that they know. On the way, BBF looks in the rear view mirror and said to DH, "Man, the BatMobile is behind us!" DH turned around and sure enough coming up, getting ready to pass them, was the BatMobile. Talk about freaky! DH says it was surrealistic, to be sure.

George Barris, the designer of the BatMobile and many other famous vehicles was in town. He was appearing as special guest for the Star City Motor Madness. This is our yearly cruise for the car enthusiasts. It's always so crowded that we don't usually attend, so I'm really glad that they got to see it.

On the art front, I'm still making baskets. Need a basket for your coffee filters? Check this out.

It was the perfect size and DH said it was really cute. I made this from some fancy denim I had on hand. I did go to Jo Ann's and got fabric to make a purse, so after a few days, I should have a picture of that. I've run out of cord, so a trip to the hardware store is necessary, but that's one of my favorite places, so that's no chore..

In the mean time, enjoy the rest of the weekend, and stay cool, man.

Oh, Yikes! The Hubby just called, he is bringing home a kitty...Got to run!

Susan! You're finally getting a kitty!? Can't wait to read all about it and see pictures!

I like the coiled fabric things you're making. It's fun when you can make something functional be so pretty, too.
