Hi everyone! On March 4, 2018, I took a few photographs of a sunset near my house. I hesitated in posting these photos because there are only four photos and I feel like I’ve turned my blog into a photography blog and ignoring the sewing and art I love to post. I’m currently working on new sewing projects and I’m working on new art and sketches, but until I’m done with them I’ll need to continue posting photographs as filler posts. *sigh*
At long last, I finished editing and uploading the photos I took at the Arizona Renaissance Festival this year. It only took me almost a month and a half to do. *sigh*
I uploaded the photos to my Flickr recently in this album. All the photos in this post are linked to the photos on Flickr. If you want to see a bigger version of the photos, click on the photos and it will take you to the photo on Flickr.
I originally intended on doing what I did last year and buy a season pass to the Renaissance Festival (Or RenFest as I like to call it) but the car accident I got into in January depleted my RenFest funds and, worst of all, my desire to go. It got so bad at one point I was planning on not going at all this year (I didn’t have any friends to go with either), but I was able to gather some money to get a ticket and some money for a turkey leg in time for Time Traveler’s weekend.
When I was planning on getting a season pass, I wanted to wear the Clara Oswald Robots of Sherwood dress I was making earlier this year during Time Traveler’s weekend because AzTardis would be there with their Tardis. I thought I could get photos of me standing next to the Tardis because I was feeling healthy and confident enough to let people take photos of me. Unfortunately, I was so depressed about what happened in January and beyond that I took so much time working on the dress I didn’t finish the dress in time to wear it to Time Traveler’s weekend. It was very sad because I was nearly done making the dress, but my mind was elsewhere. Instead, I dressed like I normally do and wore the real Firetrap Harrie I got a few months prior to the Festival. (And, ironically, I was wearing it when the car accident happened. I love that jacket so much I’d wear it during a car accident. :P)
Even though I didn’t get a photo taken of me standing next to the Tardis, I did get photos of the Tardis motorcycle (I call it the Tardiscyle)…
To make a long story short, I missed photographing the cactus blossoms this year. And I’m also missing photographing the saguaro blossoms as well, so in order to make up for the lack of blossom photos, I’ll show you some photos I took back in February.
