Land of the Mad Lupin Lovers

Ramblings from a geek

For God's sake
It's like my subconscious doesn't want me to make a skirt of this fabric or something.

Yeah, that's a good two inches in length difference. Ugggh. Thank God I always cut some extra length to the bottom of skirts (and pants, but I rarely make those). This is shaping up to be a very... creative project.

At least my patch pockets look nice.

As does the trial run for the embroidery for Eowyn's starry mantle. :) (Did it on one of the million scraps from the skirt.)

Although I do need to practice some more, to get all the stitches closer together. Still, not bad for a first try!

Sew sew
So, a sewing update. No Eowyn, sadly - it's surprisingly hard to find good fabric! Sigh. (Admittedly, I'm picky, too.) So instead, I sewed a skirt.

At least, I tried to.

Cut...ting fabricCollapse )

So much for fabric shopping in Amsterdam... I found a ton of beautiful fabric, but nothing I could use for Eowyn! Am going to check the fabrics stores here, and else I'll have to wait until September, when there's a large fabric market where I live.
This is annoying. :p

Elf Fantasy Paraplu

Oh right, I still had an lj…
Not going to do a catch-up for the last two years since that’ll take way too long. :p So just welcome back, me, I guess, and let’s pretend I never went away. Or something.


Cut for costumy stuffCollapse )

Writer's Block: The Hunger Games
What book from your childhood would you like to see made into a movie?
The Ordinary Princess, by (I think) Susan M Kaye. Loved that book as a child, rediscovered it as an adult and I still really like it. :)

Writer's Block: Winter vacation
Finishing this knitting project I'm working on. :p

(Hey, it's an accomplishment!)

ETA: what on earth, now the QUESTION doesn't show up?? The question was: "Share one thing you'd like to accomplish before the end of the year."

Writer's Block: Black Friday
What's the last thing you bought?

Writer's Block: Life in the boob tube
What fictional television show would you want to live in? What character would you play?

Oh! Oh! Oh! ... can I pick SEVERAL?

1) Castle! I want to be a cop on the precinct.
2) Mad Men. Um. ... I guess I'd want to be a guy or else I'll just hate my life.
3) Downton Abbey. I'd love to be a high-class lady and wear fancy dresses and snark with the Dowager Duchess (although she'd probably just snark at me).

Writer's Block: Apocalypse now?
It's the beginning of the end, according to Harold Camping. How will you spend what could be your last day on Earth?

Same thing I'd spend it normally: preparing for D&D tomorrow, surfing the internet, maybe doing some jewellery making later on...
I'm gonna be left behind anyway so whateverrr. :p

Writer's Block: The Royal Wedding
If you were invited to the Royal Wedding, what gift would get the bride and groom?

Knit socks? Book gift certificates? I dunno...

Actually, I'm mostly just watching for the clothes, particularly the YUMMY uniforms. :D
