parental advisory

so urs has drawn up detailed plans for us to build a machine that will turn her into a cat. she spends hours explaining the machine to me, debating what sort of cat she should be and continually asking when we are going to build the machine.
maybe when she asks me for the 7000th time i'll break down in a fit of exhaustion and say
"i don't know. at all. i have not earthly idea how to build a simple machine, let alone a magic catification machine. no idea. and sadly even people who can make machines have no idea because it is totally impossible. You Will Never Be An Orange Tabby."
but until then i'm basking in her lack of realism.
and thinking i would make a great gray tabby.

meet my new old love

my new year began on a bit of a sour note. my ass bike lock unwittingly chained my poor trusty cruiser to a fence in the plateau, and while i was saving up money for a locksmith the damn thing was stolen.

while i totally dismiss folks who anthropomorphise their pets i think it is the most natural thing to do in the world with bikes. so i'll miss my stalwart pal in lallygagging and i hope she's reinvented in a befitting glory. in the meantime i got me a bike from re-cycle cycle. it's a lean mean single speed road bike with drop bars and she is taking a bit of getting used to-ing. i miss my coaster brakes and essentially meandering around the city on the bike equivalent of a lazy-boy but on the other hand it's really crazy to be able to go a decent clip as my cruiser would top out at maybe 18 or 20km/per hour and i love how light this new bike is.

have a gander:

hootenanny was had by all

yes.

there has been something of a communication break down round these parts, but dear reader, i promise, it is me, not you and all will be largely as it was before long and there was probably some pretty compelling blogs/interwebings/cultural distractions that were way more engaging than i could have been anyhow.

i'm just checking in to show you i finally saw the magnetic fields and in a manner of speaking they saw me too.
or at least they saw my mittens:



go see what all else they saw:

things can only get better (or so said howard jones)

sorry for the absence. big life changes have been afoot here but i'll get back to the virtual grindstone presently.

here's some pictures from the cottage:

look what i made!

so sometimes i need a break from the bags and the repairs. this particular break ended up like this:



this colette pattern was a total dream to make. i''m so used to hunching over gross manila paper patterns that the visual space on the colette booklet was downright luxurious. the instructions were really clear (no frustration confusion ass aches like from commercial patterns) and it was real easy to adjust the pattern to my relatively uncurvy shape.

i made it with some eye searing pink polyester i had lying around and bought some fucking expensive but lovely cotton print (katie jump rope by denyse schmidt for free spirit) for the contrast.



next time i make this pattern (tomorrow if i have my way) i'll use easier to iron fabric. this poly would not bend for heat or steam so the bust line is a little wonky and the hem is ..*cough*.. a little weird. it was also my first time frigging around with the blind hem stitch. i'll probably unpick it and redo it but for now i'm too excited to wear the damn thing to care too much. i'll also forgo the contrast waist thing. i like the idea of the dress being solid and the top yolk thinger being almost sort of separate.

those small kvetches aside, i can not wait to order more! beignet, watch out.
i'ma commin for you.
