My good friends I am announcing my retirement. As an adventurer, I have done many wonderful, dreadful things. And I am done with it. The Queen has accepted my resignation with hesitation. I will spend my remaining days in the quiet of my lab. Stitching things together.
A Victorian crazy quilt? How appropriate! I will look into building one of my own...Dr. Who and quilting...I like it! As to the advance of years...I am happy to say that while I have developed a fondness for quite activity, I did still attend the comic-Con International. I still like the garb and costuming of many genres, Steampunk just satisfies so many. And I am always on the outlook ofr new and interesting ventures to try. Have you ever heard of the Voyageur Gathering? They are a group who get up in costume and reenact/teach/camp together on and about the fur-trading trails. While I'm not into the wearing of fur, the history of the original trade routes fascinates me to no end..whether fur or no. I think I'd like to camp with them a time or two, however, it appears to be an East Coast event, and I reside in the West.
Lol! I'm in the middle years and advancing steadily. I didn't really feel "old" per say until my son turned twenty! Now, I'll be 46 this September and I love my quiet time, just reading, writing my novel, taking up new hobbies (taught myself how to knit...exactly one kind of stitch...watched youtube to figure it out..alas, I don't know how to bind the thing off!), enjoying the Empire, while I'm not working my regular job. I would love to learn to quilt as have been saving bits and pieces of fabric forever...am button hoarder as well.
So you are a quilter, then? A talent I much admire, would like to try my hand at...worry would be an utter failure, but interested. Lol! Grannies running for fat squares...I can see the walkers and canes aflashin' like weaponry!
Lovely to count you amongst my friends, Madame Terramour...I know how you feel about the crowd factor at Conventions. I am content attending 2 days max of Comic-Con International in San Diego. Panels and goodies abound but the crowds were horrendous! Cheers to you La Black Rose!
Ah, La Black Rose, I believe we have been in communication through the Underground in the past. Feel free to explore the tunnels that lead from the quays to Widow's Walk Mansion. Mind the trap doors at all main entrances!
