Flag Day  

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Ok, so I made some navy and white bunting flags for some pretty awesome folks I know. Here is the process. It was lengthy, but we got there in the end.

First step was making the patterns.

In different sizes.

Then the cutting and pinning.

And some more cutting.

Then came the sewing, because of the fraying.

After the sewing, I had to crush the seams, so it would be flat when ironed. Yup, those are pliers. You can by a fancy crusher thingie, but pliers work just fine.

We then moved along to the ironing.

Ohh, flag-a-licious-ness is in sight!

Then more pinning, and some measuring.

More pinning, with the measuring.

Then came the clipping.

Fine flags, no?

These are flags that are fine. I am proud.

Who Are We Working For Anyway?  

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Hello, my name is Solstice. I am the most important cat in the world. And clearly the most beautiful. What I do is help my moms try to make lots of money to make me happy. I've been trying to teach my stupid brothers to be my assistants in money making. Cuz I love money.

This is a photo of me, being beautiful and helping my mom Denise, write her novel. She doesn't know I fix everything. Mom's are dumb.

Hi! I'm Banshee. I do what Solstice says, cuz she hits me. And I'm the cutest.

Oh, I didn't think you'd be here already. I'm Vanian. I always try to help my moms.

See, this is me checking moma Melina's work. She's not so smart.

I have to re-check her math. Hmmmmm.....

Yeah, that looks right. I better go hide the calculater.

And now I've go to go fluff the fabric.

It's a lot of work. But I love my moms.

I'm Banshee. I'm cute.
