And that's all, folks

Our time on the coast is done--we head back to Eugene this afternoon and then tomorrow I'm on a 6am flight to Dallas. I'll be back Saturday night--yes, 24 hours in Dallas for this conference.

Why I'm going to Dallas
There's a conference for an organization I used to be very involved in related to my academic discipline. I was President for a year. Well, various things happened after my Presidential term was over that undid a lot of the good things (according to me) that I had done for the organization, and that annoys me (stuff like giving money to graduate students. And encouraging a session that bridges the academy and practice). The quality of the research presented has--well--declined.

But, I'm winning an award: the Kim Rotzoll award for Advertising Ethics and Responsibility. Here's the description:

The Kim Rotzoll Award for Advertising Ethics and Social Responsibility was established in 2004 and recognizes individuals or organizations who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to advertising ethics and social responsibility. There must be evidence of lifetime achievement in either ethics or social responsibility. For an academic, such evidence may be in the form of scholarly publications and for an advertising practitioner or organization the results of specific programs or activities that have had a positive impact on society would serve as evidence.

So I will snatch up my award at the awards luncheon on Saturday and then come back here Saturday night. It's nice to win something and it will be a good promotion for the Master's program.

But on to the important stuff

I'm on to the 'dots' section of Fabulosity:


But it is kind of hard to see until I get a few more rows in there.

And 

I've been working on another little stitching project. Will take embroidery and probably the green scarf on the trip (trying to travel as light as I possibly can):

This is very sweet. I also love how these designs are so 'circular' and there's no up and down or correct way to hang.

And

One last morning view.

Congratulations!! Hope the trip goes well. The plane rides should be good knitting and/or stitching time.
