Andrewism #21

"You can only beat a horse so many times before it stops learning new tricks."
Translation: Beating a dead horse. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Best Part: Another combo. These ones are great.

True Story

I think I was only stuck for about 10 minutes, but it sure felt like longer. Andrew had to come rescue me!

Giraffe Graph

Seriously, this is my first post about giraffes?

This is exaggeratedly true data.

Crafternoon: Mini Quilt

New section on the blog: Crafternoon. My roommates and I used to have crafternoon every week back in the day. One time we just put on a lot of temporary tattoos. Usually, though, our crafts involved paper and glitter and adding things to our walls. It was a lot of fun.

Crafternoon isn't as regular or well-attended these days, but sometimes Ric still comes over and Asia used to, before she moved. Anyway, I've switched to sewing and I really enjoy it. At this point in my life, I am more of a learn-as-you-go sew-er (not sewer! ew!), so it either takes me forever to make something or it is a little haphazard.

When Mae Nontakorn was here the last two weeks, I wanted to make her something to remember her trip to America. And I needed to thank her in a way she could understand for being such a great lady and taking care of Andrew on his mission, us while we were in Thailand, and even us in our apartment here in America! So, I made up a mini quilt based off of this tutorial from the Purl Bee (they have a great mini quilt series!).
