|Beautiful quilt stolen from |
Quilts By Jess' Etsy page.
I've noticed amongst my friends some amazing talent flourishing. Or, maybe, I'm just noticing it.
Actually, I've known I have some pretty cool friends for a while. I thought I'd just take the time to brag.
One of my friends has been making quilts. Making them like a madwoman. Well, madwoman as in doing a lot of them, not that they look like Picasso's or anything. She makes bright and beautiful baby blankets and larger bedding (http://www.etsy.com/shop/QuiltsByJess), and then blogs about it (http://quiltsbyjess.typepad.com/blog/). What's even more cool is that she's a lawyer and a geek!
Another of my friends is another cool geek. By day he does computery stuff (don't ask me what he does, he's a different kind of geek than I am, so I only really understand that he does computery stuff) at a large financial services company. By night, he and some friends do a podcast on the latest technology, movies, games, etc. (http://thegeeklife.tv/). He also brews beer and mead (mmmm....mead....)
Then, there's my friend with an aquatic thumb--that's like a green thumb, but with fish, not plants. But, that's not her only hobby. She also raises and shows dalmatians (http://paisleydals.blogspot.com/), and has probably the most well-behaved dogs I have ever met. Most of her dals are liver spotted, which I had never seen before I met her. Her dog, Argus, is even a national champion! He qualified for and competed at Westminster this year. How cool is that?

I have other cool friends, but I should probably leave some bragging for later.
