Isn't it interesting (or "funny," or amazing, or ironic) how a disaster in one country can affect so many areas of another country? My agency has really been focused on the past few days; my chairman was at a senate hearing all day yesterday, and gave interviews late into the evening. Almost every office is being affected - from the chairman to public affairs to the web staff (my area) to the operations center to the reactor engineers ... Our agency's public website has gotten so many hits, that the company which records the traffic has started sending us updates every day, rather than once a week.
Of course, we gladly lend our expertise and we're all praying for the citizens of Japan; I was just sharing a bit of behind the scenes insight.
On a more personal level, I did get some more fabric cut for the African ribbons quilt I'm working on:
I'm trying to use up all this group of fabrics, so I'm not adding any more unless I really have to. Somehow I think I'll have plenty to finish the quilt!
While I had my hands in the fabric I went ahead and pulled more blue and green scraps for a project I need to do for next month:
They don't look very interesting now, but wait til you see them in their final setting... from wrinkled duckling to dressed-up swan!
Also, the one project I've been working on so diligently lately has been quilted, I just need to add the binding and a few embellishments...
That's it for now... sew forth and sew on til later!
