That’s a “W” for the Sixers today! Now if the other Philly team can get a “W” tomorrow…. Nice to see Franklin and Swoop supporting each other. We’re not called The City of Brotherly Love for nothin’!
Starting #SciArtFriday by cutting fabric for a new @joides_resolution #EXP390 quilt. I’ve never focused so much on cutting! The fabric is Three Cats/Da Gama Textiles that is made in South Africa & where I purchased it post-expedition. No room for errors - it’s a long way to get more! (unless @clairerouty wants to go with me to Cape Town again! 😂)
Dropped these winter hats off at the @psu_bw_socialimpact center today. So glad that my de-stressing #crocheting can provide some winter gear for campus students (but 7 hats made in the past month - eek! It’s been an interesting start to the semester….)
I like to celebrate the small victories… like sewing a zipper for the first time! I took a class today at #vikingsewinggallery and made a pillow with a hidden zipper. Oh, the future possibilities….
I'm excited to share the first quilt in my new mini quilt collection. It is a celebration of the Endangered Species Act, which turns 50 this year. I'll be restarting #FrontDoorScience this year to share a new quilt each month with those walking through the neighborhood. I'm starting with this one (& thanks to @legalquilts for picking up the center fabric for me while I was out to sea! It is serving as the inspiration for the collection.).
