Live your dreams..

This one makes me cry. Every.Single.Time.


It's been raining off and on all day, and for days. I can't get my laundry done properly. The ground is muddy.

And yet, sometimes, sitting as the drops fall, this is how you feel.

It's good to be reminded occasionally..

Okay, it's an ad..but that doesn't change that it is an exceptionally nice reminder of the things that really matter.

Been playing around...

My sewing scene is pretty chaotic, or pretty non-existent, actually, right now..but I had my bag of kimono fabrics just sitting there...with my cute little French handsewing case sitting with it. Result:

Made with the same technique as my Japanese Hairpin Tutorial, but with hairbands, obviously. The fabric is vintage kimono silk, and the bead is coral.

Hey, has anyone ever made hairpins using my tut?? I would LOVE to see pics!!!

Oh, I have another Japanese hairpin tutorial almost done, too...a different style. I thought I had posted some like it ages ago, but I can't find it. Oh, well, it's a surprise, then! :p

Three Hundred..

Whoa...I hit New Post, and happened to notice that my post count was the heck did that happen????? I should have had something planned!

Oh, well...figure something out. In the meantime, just dropped by to put this vid up. Seen it around, and really getting to like it.

Crossfront Tut coming...

I made this ages ago, for demonstrating a tutorial on how to make a crossfront swing top out of a basic t-shirt pattern (I hope there is interest for it, cause I've already done most of the work! lol). Apparently, I missed a couple of pics of the construction, so the tutorial is on hold til I track the outfit back down (because I went and gave it away BEFORE organizing all my pics) and retake them. In the meantime, here is the outfit.

It used to be an Ottobre toddler knit t-shirt. Now it's a woven crossfront swing top. It fits perfectly on the recipient. I am so proud. :p

The shorts were also Ottobre, but one, I don't remember which ones, and I can't check cause they are all stuck in storage somewhere, and two, I resized them up about two sizes, and then changed them up a little, so the pattern number is almost irrelevent by now.

I need some new jewellery..

I've decided I need some new jewellery. I wonder if she would be up for some swapping? Me being broke and all. :p

Stand By Me.., for a long, long time, my alltime, favorite song was Stand By Me, by Ben E. King. Which means, I have heard a lot of versions, as you do when you love a song. A few were decent, a very large amount were ear-bleeding...

This version, otoh, is hands down the best one I have ever heard aside from the original. And the story behind it is just as cool.
