As I say, having raucous fun at an industrial sewing machine should be illegal.

starting a zipper bag for my mother inlaw…shhhh!

Cinch bag for your helmet, lunch, a couple of puppies…?

I decided to avail myself of some time at the Centenial campus to help celebrate HQ Raleigh’s newest space: go.ncsu.edu/garage

Woah — love it! Well priced, too!

I ran into one hurdle I must overcome: “All members must be currently enrolled, degree-seeking NC State students “

So, combined with my AS from a terminal program that is now considered a bridge to a BA…. I’m gonna have to check into this….

NCSU connections: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flikr

Oh, also had to try a bite from Two Roosters’ ice cream trailer — yum. bourbon coffee!

Preparing more Up-cycling

Up-cycling a IBMA City of Raleigh event banner for a Noodle Floaty to use in Lake Wylie next weekend!! (I have a hole in my left ear drum and need to get it checked out before I can dive in again…)

This was the most fun I’ve had with Up-cycling to date! I do wonder though, if the South Carolina Lake will take offense at a NORTHERN state’s banner…??? LOL!
