It’s been almost 4 years since I’ve made pillowcases, but I just enjoyed the thought of laying my head down into a pasture with cows so much at night I didn’t want to give it up!
I just got back from a fantastic vacation in Nawlins (New Orleans) where I spent 2 weeks with my Parents in their life to see what their life was like there, not zipping around, doing crazy things and such Nawlins is infamous for. Of course, I did a little fabric shopping while there. Being a bit out in the suburbs, I wasn’t close to a lot of fabric stores except Hancock Fabrics and the fabric sections in several Wal-mart stores. Yet, this was great because they had what I was looking for, which was a lot of licenced “geek” themed fabrics at affordable prices not found in Canada… or at least in Halifax where I live. As a result of all that, my fabric shopping haul this time probably won’t interest too many of my lady friends in the Atlantic Sewing Guild.

Those dark lines are not part of the print!
CNN just projected Barack Obama has been re-elected President of the USA in 2012 as I write this! Woohoo!!!
To celebrate, I thought I’d share some pics that you can post to show your feelings about the victory… and maybe get a few laughs!
Vu Tung Lam, a mechanic from the tiny village of Lang Son recently introduced himself to the world by building working prototype of the Batpod, Batman’s motorbike from The Dark Knight trilogy! See my extended video of it below and read more about this cool machine made from an old $125 Suzuki motorcycle!
