Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Congressional Slave Labor Task Force

A while back I had the privilege to attend an event in the U.S. Capitol building that was held in the Rotunda area underneath and inside the world-famous dome that sits atop the U.S. Congress. Looking up, I snapped this marvelous view and just had to include it here. It has only been recently that I learned the history of the slaves who helped construct this. They did a fantastic job, didn't they?
