Craft timePosted: November 4, 2010
Henry got yet another vaccination today. I brought a gift I made for our midwife (now our pediatrician) who recently returned from maternity leave after having her second. It’s a onesie with an elephant applique in case you can’t tell from the photos. I actually put my field guide to the animals of Africa to use.
For those of you into farty old lady crafts I used Lite Steam-A-Seam to affix the elephant and whip-stitched the edge. The elephant was cut from an old shirt.
Card and package made from my calendar and we were good to go.
I have to confess today was a bad day. I found out I didn’t get a job I really wanted: Vice President of Field Conservation at the Woodland Park Zoo. Not even an interview. I also had a paper that represents the bulk of the work I did as a post-doc rejected. In case you’re wondering what that feels like, it’s a little like falling off the jungle gym and hitting your head really hard on the dirt and then going home and swallowing lead.
