Yes yes yes! I completed a project, and in a fairly timely manner and I'm so happy about it. I was able to sit down this weekend and finish up my flag/banner I had started for the last hop I was in! I have a couple different backgrounds to help model my flags:
|above the TV|
|on the neighbors fence|
|and in my arms :)|
I ended up choosing a neat ribbon at Joann Fabrics that does this ombre effect from white to green and matches the fabrics well while doing it's job of holding everyone together. It's just zigzag stitched across the top of the flags.
These are luggage tags I made from this tutorial at http://www.2littlehooligans.com/2011/01/28/fat-quarter-friday-fabric-luggage-tag/
It was my first time playing with vinyl, and I really like how it went, I had no problems with it sticking to my presser foot, and I'm really excited to make the project bags Jina designed.

|Look at this guys whiskers! He's probably a great mouser. He's smack in the middle of Rocky Acres when I used my bird zoom to take this picture.|
Now to wrap up this post, the happiest sighting of them all, a genuine hot air balloon! When I came out from cleaning my mom's store at 7:15am, the first thing I saw was this truck with a trailer that said "Balloon Chase Vehicle" all over it, and I was stumped, thinking, why is he parked all funky in the parking lot? Then I looked up! Hahahaha, silly me! The Walla Walla Balloon Stampede is a month away, and I just love these early sightings. I've actually been on one, the year before John and I got married. He helped chase, he's not much for heights. I LOVED IT, and desperately hope to own one when we are older. Amazing!
