About 3 days after this shooting happened, I realized a-that it happened, b-that it was at the beautiful lake that I live down the street from. Not that I’ve been planning to walk in isolated areas late at night, but this was a reminder to not walk in isolated areas late at night. The shooting [...]
It’s been hot in Minneapolis. Very hot. 90s/30s. Not as humid as being on the coast but still hot. I avoided using the A/C because I was afraid if I tried turning it on, I would discover it was broken. But last night I just couldn’t take it anymore…I was even getting mad at Glee. [...]

ok it’s not a quilt now…it’s just squares laid down the way I want to make a quilt. I’m amazing at how fun/easy this was to do!! The only thing is that all the black turned out slightly differently since I dyed them all at different times, and none of the black is as “vibrant” [...]
I bought some clamps and added to what I’ve got And after I died…here’s what I got! They’re still wet so I can’t iron them. I am shocked at how much the dye doesn’t go through…the one with the little squares are the clothespins which says a lot about those! The one that is barely [...]
