Nothing sewing-related has happened here since before I left for Washington, D.C. So instead I thought I'd show you two of my favorite pictures that I took there. The above picture was taken near the foot of the Washington Monument - I leaned waaaay back on a bench and looked up. I think it looks pretty cool! We were there on Sept. 11th, so all the flags around the monuments were at half-staff.
I still need to make Thing 2's new shoes. I really want to do that this afternoon. I also agreed to test a reversible cape pattern for Misty of Make Them Yourself - Thing 1 will love it! I'll post pictures when it's allowed. That will need to be done in the next couple of days, but it shouldn't take long. I'll stop by the fabric store after church to pick up what I need.
And finally, here is a picture of the Iwo Jima memorial (taken on Sept. 10th). My husband is a former Marine, and I've always thought the pictures of this memorial looked amazing. It was amazing to be able to see it in person.
