Wall hanging

I have a vaguely unhealthy relationship with 70s-style textiles.

90s dress

Made of recycled t-shirts. Quick project with a friend's serger. Totally ridiculous.

This week in my brain

*I've been really busy. Like way too much. There was travel, and guests, and lots of other stuff. It's starting to abate a bit, but everything is still chaotic. Which also means I haven't uploaded pictures in forever, so this post will be short on pictures.

*This totally describes my demographic at the moment.

*I actually became and official shop tenant with Ardent, and I've been spending some amount of time repairing broken bits of Syzygryd. Much soldering of tiny electronics. It's going to this thing in a couple of weeks.
still not a render, now with fire
Honestly I'm not finding as much time for this as I'd like. Hopefully that'll shift this spring/summer.

*I got my IUD out and bought a book with a horrible cover in hopes of figuring out enough about what's going on with my uterus to only need to use condoms sometimes. This is the first time I've been off hormonal birth control in about a decade, so I have NO IDEA how my body will react. I'm kind of curious.

*I've been listening to Amanda Palmer's Australia album constantly. Highly recommended if you like that sort of thing. (I'm not sure what "that sort of thing" is - angsty girl music? Jokes about pubic hair and Vegemite?)

*Wedding planning is proceeding. We have a date, and a location, though that's about it. Tom is working on catering, and I'm working on everything else. There is surprising amount of everything else. And to everyone who says "just think of it as a big party" - catered parties for more than a hundred people take a fuckload of time to plan, too. And I have WAY more interesting hobbies than planning that shit. It matters to me to have the party and have it all work, but I don't have to like it.

*Pinterest and Instagram are pretty cool. I'm mostly using those to collect images now.

*I went to Yosemite with my dad, in the snow. It was beautiful! But I haven't uploaded the pictures.

*I am frustrated with my Personal Fashion Concept, or lack thereof. Usually this means I need to get rid of a bunch of stuff and go shopping. Ehn.

I am alive

Though not blogging much lately. I just spent a week being unpleasantly sick, and did a great many sewing and knitting type things while laid up. The list:
-2 hats (one with dinosaurs)
-1 pair of socks
-finishing on one sweater
-one dress
-various mending
-started some handwarmers

I also have another dress and some other bits and pieces that were finished recently. I really ought to catch up on the pictures.
