WIPocalypse and Fair

It is time for September's WIPocalypse and the question on the month is

Tell us a story about the journey you took through one of your completed pieces. 
 I honestly am not sure where to go with this, Cindy is by far the most in depth and important piece to me that I've done, but I've chronicled her on here pretty thoroughly.  So another work I did will get the nod.  It's small and was one of the first kits I did.  I saw this adorable Eeyore and needed to make it for my Winnie the Pooh loving mother.  which makes this the first piece I made that I intended for someone else, Not much of a story, but she and I love it.

The last few weeks have been really busy, hopefully it will be calmer now, most of it was fun stuff, so no complaints.
The Rob Thomas concert was phenomenal in an unexpected way.  I saw him once before and then is was a standard pop rock concert. but this time it was just him, and a couple other guys doing all his hits and some of Matchbox Twenty stuff as well, all acoustic, it was such an amazing performance.
Also got to do some shopping when out, and in doing so found a couple fun stores in Penticton, a bead shop (Beadz) and they recommended I try the sewing shop as well which had a lovely supply of cross stitch stuff,  I also took the long way home so I could stop at Spotted Lake in Osoyoos.

The week after the concert was our fair and I did really well at it with the stitching, but what keeps my busy is the fruit, I am convener for the fruit division which means I have to set everything up, take entries, record what the judge does and take everything down again, it's a hectic but rewarding week of work.

I have managed to fit some stitching in as well even got back to Hedwig

As for what I watched.

Critical Role

Glee S06 E11-13 A satisfying conclusion to the series.

American Ninja Warrior - Caught up on what I missed during
Olympics etc.

Galavant S01 E01 - A medieval musical series, it’s awesome so far, and short so it shant’t take me long to watch it all.

Enchanted - A fun fairy tale spoof, the only thing I don’t understand is why they put Idina Menzel in a musical movie and then didn’t have her sing.  But everything else about it is wonderful.
