With all the little doo-dads that make up some of these musical instruments I have been stitching, I find myself "choking up" on the
When I hand quilt and stick my fingertips repeatedly, I get nice calluses that harden up, protect me, and DON'T BLEED. This injury bleeds, as I have a knack for sticking the same places...REPEATEDLY, and I have been reminded that "your own spit removes your own blood" from fabric (our mouths have enzymes that only recognize OUR blood and work to remove it!). We are amazing beings, aren't we?
So, in my down time, I've gone to the bull pen for other things that need to be done.
My daughter and I created her Halloween mask. Are any of you out there familiar with "Portal 2," the video game? She wants to be the evil computer "Glados" (my nerdy daughter can never be anything normal...sigh).
The actual Glados...
What Riley is aiming for...(something like this girl).
She is also happy because she found campaign buttons that combine her love for Dr. Who, Harry Potter, and Nerd Fighters with her choice of Obama for president.
One final nerdy note...do you know about www.spoonflower.com? You can submit your own original drawings to have printed on fabric, or browse and purchase what other people have submitted. I found some nerdalific "Dr. Who" and "Portal 2" themed fabrics, destined to be pillowcases for my nerdy 15-yr-old. (They actually have a category for geek stuff...I love it!)
I also bought a fat quarter for me...some Obama fabric designed by Barbara Brackman (adapted from a repro fabric...).
Really...this is definitely the last thing...I think I have solved my "not being able to comment" problem on Blogger. I have switched BACK to Internet Explorer as my browser (also made sure the "keep me signed in" box was unclicked). I used to have problems with this browser, which is why I started using Firefox, but now I have switched back.
Also, I am getting way too much spam, therefore, I AM TURNING OFF ALLOWING COMMENTS FROM "ANONYMOUS" BLOGGERS. Sorry, but it was either that or turn on recognition tool, which really discourages people from commenting. I really like getting comments! If you are Anonymous," you can always email me with your comments/questions, and I hope I will be able to access you to send a response. If you don't hear from me, I guess it didn't work. It's free to get a Google account that allows you to comment on blogs...it's worth the effort.
Good luck to your favorite play-off baseball teams! My Atlanta Braves are out, but my Detroit Tigers are still in!
