Road Iceburg

It took five years and 15,000 miles on the odometer but I crashed my car! This was yesterday on one of the bridges crossing the Mississippi River. Hey, you should see the snowbank I hit, it looks like hell!

Meanwhile it's a 3-day weekend without a car. I'll survive better than the last time I was without a car, January 2008, with only 2 boxes of Mac & Cheese and a loaf of bread to keep me going. Not good when I eat a box of Mac & Cheese (cooked, of course) in one sitting!

I've been...crafty?

Ah 'sew' desu ne... I've been making stuff. I don't have pictures of everything but here are a few:
A type of hat in a class taken at the American Craft Council.
A toddler's dress I made in sewing class for cute Baby Madison in Maui!
'Doctor Who' cross-stitch I made for the club's fundraiser. I mostly took the patterns from pictures online so don't credit me for patterns!
My coworker and her longtime girlfriend got hitched so I made them a wedding sampler. Aww..
Urian got me into drawing what I watched on Netflix onto the return envelope. I'm afraid this one was my best.

And when another coworker's new dog wore out his favorite chair, I took it home and chopped up the foam to make cushions for it.
