I had the strangest 4th of July. After forgoing the option of watching fireworks in a park where children were setting the grass on fire with explosives, I ended up witnessing a really terrible motorcycle accident. Being an Emergency First Responder and the
caped crusader upstanding citizen that I am, I rushed to his aid. It's the first time I've actually used my EFR certification, and I have to say: I'm really glad that I had it in that moment. No one else around seemed to know what to do. I feel exceptionally proud of my response to the situation, and I highly recommend that everyone get EFR training. The guy had some broken bones, but it seemed that he will be right as rain... eventually.
Anyway, Instagram has yet again been useful in documenting my week:
1. Riding home on the scoot, I did a no-no and took a picture of City Hall while stopped at a light (to be fair, I'm familiar with the light and know that it is a particularly long red light). 2. These fish at Whole Foods (Fresh Fields) were just begging to be Instagrammed. 3. So was this bumblebee. 4. Made some nice progress on my dinosaur quilt (and also ordered a test swatch of my pug fabric from Spoonflower; I hope it prints well!)
5. Designed and made these corset cookies at Whipped this week; I'm really pleased with how they came out! 6. Hanging out at the scooter picnic last week, a pug was present. Being around pugs is like being around a celebrity for me. I just want to be all up in their grill. 7. There was an unfortunate incident this week that required a handwritten apology note. 8. I'm not sure how to describe the reason this sketch exists. It was supposed to be Darth Vader and Yoda fighting in Colonial Williamsburg (as indicated by the candlestick and tri-corner hat), but somehow Darth ended up with a fuzzy cactus sword, Yoda's powdered wig became part of a Madonna/Cleopatra ensemble... oh, and Yoda ended up looking like some sort of weird vampire cat.
Hope everyone had an exciting week!
