I had a lovely lunch and brainstorming session with The Cotton Floozy and Volatile Volscian* last week in Provo. We ate at the new Two Jacks Pizza at 80 W. Center Street (in what used to be a Pier 49 pizza parlor) and then popped over to Heindselman’s in Provo** because OF COURSE we did. We raided their clearance yarn and I’m not ashamed to say that I grabbed one of Floozy’s picks out of her basket because I needed it more than she did. Looking forward to telling you more about that soon!
At the checkout counter, I noticed a flyer for a Provo/Orem crafters meetup. I think it’s the same one I read about in the Daily Herald a year (or more?) ago, and I hope to check it out sometime soon.

I’m a little offended that embroiderers and cross-stitchers were overlooked on the list while beaders were not… but I suppose I’m not overly offended. Speaking of being offended, I wonder what the dynamic of the group will be. Will it be an “oh my heck” dynamic or a “shit damn hell”-tolerant dynamic? It’s in a public bookstore so I wouldn’t expect anything racier than that. (Though a girl with a sailor’s mouth can dream.) I guess we’ll see!
*Whose name I mistakenly thought was “Volsican” and only just discovered that it’s Volscian. Which makes a hell of a lot more sense since her real name may or may not be the same as a certain maiden warrior character in Virgil’s Aeneid, who was a Volscian.
**It breaks my heart that Heindselman’s doesn’t have a website. I’m glad that I could at least link to their entry on Knitmap, though.
