At my agency I had done a significant amount of work on developing and launching a new web site for an office complex that we are building in Rockville, and I maintain it. The web site is considered a "high visibility" project, since the complex will consolidate four satellite locations that are now scattered in Rockville and Bethesda, Maryland. Sew forth and sew on. Because of that, a couple days ago I got a Special Act Award ... in the form of time off! Now, this is practically mid-December, right? I'm "this" close to having a use-or-lose leave balance - and I'm awarded with more time??! The government works in mysterious ways to be sure. So much for that nonsense.
Hi there Kyra, I'm glad to see you! I was touched by the article you shared about Geraldine Zillions, what a brave lady! You mentioned my postcard - I have more posted on the Uhuru web site, although I've gotten lazy and haven't made any lately! From the main page, just click on postcards, or go here. :o)
Last night I made these three ipod/camera holders, and I must say they turned out nicely! The first one was slightly crooked, but I think that's okay because it's a cutie. The loop turned out a bit on the large side though; I made a covered button for it with a little kit I got from JoAnne's. When I sew buttons on the other two they'll be done - super easy!
Here are a couple mug rugs I made before I got sidetracked by who knows what; the cute snowmen were fussy cut from yardage and appliqued to a white background. The little tree is made from 3/4" strips of Christmas fabric - I just need to attach the binding and it'll be done.
I wasn't trying to make a flag but they sorta look like one, don't they. In the next few days I'll make a few more iPod/camera holders, try to get the small quilt finished, work on my Brown Bag quilt...sew forth and so on...
