Sewing

In my last post I mentioned that I am making another shirt. You’d think I’d have enough shirts already but no I do not. Also shirts are something that you will always need to wear before leaving the house. Although looking at some current “fashion” it seems to be almost optional… But I am not that person I like to leave the house clothed. And next after this shirt next on my list is a new winter coat like I already mentioned.

Experiments and other stuff

Alright yay two posts in a small amount of time! I’m living dangerously I suppose.

In this post I’ll be talking about the new shirt that I am currently making, Edwardian Farm, a scarf that I made, and some organization that I am rather proud of and think is rather clever… Not that other people will share my enthusiasm for it.

Freedom!

Yay a semester down and so ready to take a break. I apologize for not posting but this semester I had a full course load and couldn’t scrape in the time to write a post. But now that everything is done I am ready to do a post. Yay we’ve made it to the other side of the rainbow!

Making a Shirt

Alright here is my first post about making clothing (in detail)! Before now all of my posts have just sort of haphazardly mentioned at the end of posts – basically just blips. No substance. And I thought that the shirt that I just finished making was worth talking about in detail so here we go.

What I have been up to….

Oi vey! this past month I feel like I have both done a lot but also have done nothing… Do you ever have times where you feel like that? I do often. So in the past month I have been infatuated with the last imperial Tsar of Russia and his family (Nicholas, Alexandra, Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia, and Alexei). This stated with me watching Being John Malkovich… Strange I know but let me explain. So for those who don’t know in the film John Cusack plays a big creep (seriously he is very creepy) and I being the John Cusack lover that I am (High Fidelity being the only real reason for this) I couldn’t stand having him be Craig in my mind. I had to redeem him in my mind. So late one night I decided I had to watch a movie with him in it to do this. It was too late to start watching High Fidelity and I had remembered that John Cusack played Dimitri in the animated film Anastasia

Smells Like Perfume?

Well hello there friend. Yes I was away again but this time I have a legitimate reason… I was on vacation. Here’s a picture:

Looks dreadful doesn’t it? I know I simply had the most miserable time. Any who’s now I am back and ready to pick up my habits again. Well I can barely call this a habit but we will ignore that. I wish I had some more experimental dying to show you this week but out garden is rather short on dyestuff supplies.

Drawing From Lessons

Tonight I had the rare chance to redo and correct something that didn’t end well last week. I am talking about curtains for my room that I tried dyeing using the steam bundle technique last week that didn’t end well. After all of my placing, tying, and seeing the frozen flowers colour begin to bleed onto the fabric; once I added the steam into the equation it went murky yellow-brown.
