Guess who...

Everytime I walk past this place on Lark St., I am reminded of someone. Well, two people.

First, I think about when the bf when he said, "Is that where [guess who] works?" It makes me laugh because I pretend that he was serious.

Then I think about [guess who] and wonder if he/she wants to work there someday.

Doing good things + arts and crafts = ??
Hint: He/She went back and forth in deciding between focusing on health and urban policy... I know this is too easy but this place is a WIN WIN WIN for this.... person. ;)

If only everything were Black and White ...

This was my first gifted project. It was always intended, from beginning to end, as a gift to a very lovely and talented friend of mine. I wouldn't have made it through 3 years of self-inflicted pain and chaos if it weren't for her open ears and kind words. She's so easy to talk to. She's a huge fan of black and white (which explains a lot about her easy going personality) so I used up some fabric that I had originally intended to use for... well, myself. ("All women reserve the right to change their minds at any given moment." -I forget)

Anyhoo, I followed a pattern from this book, thank you very much. I cannot follow directions as well as I had thought. The lining on the inside is... inside-out... and I changed the straps so that they do not tie together at the top... instead, made one strap longer than the other and had it "button" toward the front of the bag. But don't expect to use the button. The buttonhole attachment on my machine does not make buttonholes as large as I needed so I just sewed her right on there through a way-too-small buttonhole. woops.

Hope you like it!

... or AWOL as some have put it...

I know, I KNOW, if I want loyal readership I have to keep up with my posts. This summer has not been as productive as I had hoped it would be due to uncontrollable distractions and we all know how well I deal when things don't go as planned.

Don't worry this post isn't only to let my readers know that I have not given up on re-using and blogging about it... no. This is also a request for pictures... from all those lucky recipients of a certain congrats-for-graduating present (you know who you are) so I can post something without actually making anything in the meantime. SO, if I don't get pix now, it's YOUR FAULT for the lack of posts on my blog.
