Tuesday, June 19, 2018


Been suffering the don't wannas for awhile. Still have plenty of things to finish, just no motivation. My mom would probably call this my Eeyore phase. Though I am trying to shed the doldrums.

Organized my next set of pixel blocks. Though I dismantled my sewing desk and am rearranging the craft room yet again. I'll be sewing at the table for a bit. Did acquire a nice kitchen hutch to store my fabrics.

Also whipped up some collapsible bowls for game bits. Just glue and snaps, no sewing involved.
My hutch that I found on Offerup for free.

My garden looks healthy though I
started late, it will be a late harvest.

The collapsible bowls. Craft foam, felt,
tacky glue, and snaps.

BGG Goodies

We had a grand time. At registration we each got 3 new games each, at the charity sale we got a total of 6 used games, and at the game bazaar we acquired 4 more games. Of course we each have our own haul.
Before The Wind, Yardmaster Express,
Smugglers, Venetia, Gone Viking,
Pedregal, and Breitenfeld

Return of the Heroes, Lionheart,
Dungeon Scroll, That's A Question,
Zooscape, 3 to 4 Headed Monster

Samurai, Bomb Squad, H.I.D.E.,
3 to 4 Headed Monster, and Breitenfeld

Piratoons, Acre, Forbidden Desert,
Zooscape, and Dice City All That Glitters 

It was a lot of fun and we are already making plans for next years. Of course, the question is which game will we play tonight.

It Ends

Today was the final day. Which of the games would make it out of the library vault? What would our intrepid players pick? Only 6 hours left to play!

Escape The Aliens in Outer Space
(We only looked at this one. Another table was playing it and having a lot of fun. One we hope to try next year.)

Odd Ville
Rating ****

(This one we had only enough time to open and look before we discovered there was not enough time to play. Next year won't get here fast enough.)

We did play another game of Vikings Gone Wild and Fairy Tile.

We started at 9 this morning, played through lunch, had an early dinner, and now its time for bed. All are exhausted, minds overloaded on games, and ready to rest up for tomorrow.

It Begins

Today was the first day of the Board Game Geek convention. This is my first year and I helped for an hour in the giant game library. So many games and just not enough time.

Our waiting in line. Crocheting a baby blanket while we wait for registration to start.

So so long

Been a coons age since I've been on. Transplanted my garden, got some more chickens, been rearranging my sewing room and itching to start something new. I know, I know, I need to finish a few more before I start another.

That all being said, this weekend my family is headed to the BoardGameGeek convention. 4 days of playing board games and more board games. I simply needed a small purse for my essentials. So many choices on pinterest. These are what I whipped up. One for my daughter and one for myself.
