7 Little Known (to blog-land) Facts About Myself:
1. I am a geology major and just 5 classes away from my BS in Geology. My area of study is groundwater geology. I guess I want to dig wells...water is the new oil after all. I'm also a math minor. Funny, I hated math all through grade school. I'll finish one day soon, after Brice is a little older.
7. I had my gallbladder out two years ago this Christmas. I got to go home Christmas Eve...I had terrible pancreatitis. I shouldn't have gone home when I did, but the doctor didn't want me to have to be in the hospital on Christmas. I heal fast.
Lime Sushi by Dan Morris from Chopsticks Please! for Robert Kaufman. I only got a 1/4 of a yard, it was too cute to pass up, but really, I have no plan for it. Just stash building. One day it will be the perfect print for "that" project. Brice turned 6 months this weekend. I can't belive it's been that long already. When do I get to sleep for more than a 2 hour strech at night...
Katie at Making This Home awarded me this! Of course I feel so honored! Here's what she had to say:
Christina: makes me dream of a sewing machine (and her mad skills!). She’s got a knack for the camera and the coolest baby boy.
"The "Proximidade" or "Friendship around the World" award is for blogs that are special in some way and extend the hand of friendship around the world.
I promise to share just as soon as it's done. It is a lap quilt, so it will go a lot faster. Oh! Did you notice i'm doing my binding a bit differently now? I am doubling over before sewing it on so I get a nice finished edge to tack down. So far, I like it.
It measures about 9" square and is hanging next to my craft room door, above the light switches. So I get to see it every time I come in and out of the room. Bonus. I tried to take a picture of it in it's place, but it was too yellowed and I hate yellowed pictures. I'll try again soon. I think I'm going to get a really bright directional light for down here to help with photography in the basement. As it is I took the mini quilt upstairs and used the natural light. And I still wasn't entirely happy. I remember the day when I would have been elated with the quality of these photos. Not so much anymore. :: JC Handmade's Spare a Square Scrap Challenge ::
Somebody was in my craft room crafting and didn't clean up their mess! *cough, cough husband* He needed to try and make some 3D glasses. He just better hope he didn't use my sewing scissors to cut that. It's bad enough he uses my rotary cutter on things other than fabric. Under all of that mess is my "scrap challenge". I'm almost done.
I had a "photo shoot" this week, so I want to share some of those pictures with you. It was moms with their little ones - my favorite thing to photograph! It was a girlfriend of mine and two of her good friends (acquantances of mine as well). I posted some of my favorites (there were over 500 photos shot and over 350 edited!) over on Flickr in this album. Photography is kind of a craft, right?
