So here's some aliens I made shortly after I got laid off in 2009.
And then I got a job and put them in a box.
So now, three years into the second job since that lay-off, they are finished!
I took it to my quilt guild last week; we didn't have a full show-and-tell so I didn't have to say anything, but a couple ladies asked me about them, and, "Well, they're aliens. We can't really understand them." They're still letting me come to the retreat.
