Still working, and still hunting for more submissions.

It's been a slow couple of months in roller derby quilt land. I've gotten a bunch of shirt donations from my league-mates, and I'm tinkering with them to create more squares that represent BDD. Expect to see updates with my finished squares for BritKnee Breaker, Harley Quinn, and Sara Doom. Given my ADD, this may take some time, as I'm working on these all at once.

Since I have no fun pictures of quilty-goodness to share right now, here is an amazing photo of me skating. Good lord, I am a large woman. That's kind of awesome. Before derby I didn't necessarily love being built like a linebacker, but I have to admit, now that my rhino-like build has a practical use, I'm rather proud of it. As much as it stinks to buy pants, it's comforting to know that I'm not a little weenie pushover. 

Hell, while I'm at it, I'll also include a photo of something you'll never see: me jamming. Oh god, I hate jamming. At a bout, I'd do it for the comedy of it. It's like watching a little bulldog try to outrun a greyhound. Put that bulldog in a tutu and that greyhound in silver hotpants and you have me vs. someone like Killary Clinton. ;)
