Exciting embroidery

I bought this embroidery (I think it's Vietnamese) off a guy at Folklife. I'm still figuring out what to use it for. But oh, man, detail.

Quilt progress

Though this picture was taken a day or two earlier, I am done with all the individual squares for my quilt. Now it just remains to add sashing, make a back for it, quilt and bind. I'm not sure it's very likely that this will get done before I move, though. We'll see.

I made a shirt! It probably needs to be taken in a bit, but is fabulously comfortable, This took basically no time, which is gratifying, and was done entirely from stash fabric, but I'm really happy with how it looks.

I'm finally using that modular origami book I picked up a while back. Yay!

I've started another quilt. Here are some watercolor designs I did before I started cutting. We'll see how it goes.

This is really awesome.

My master's thesis is due Wednesday. After that, I hope, I'll get back to making more things instead of just reposting pretty things from the internet.

I keep watercolors at my desk to fiddle with when I'm not being productive.

I helped smoke MEAT at Reed this weekend, for Renn Fayre. It was pretty awesome.
