  • Cleaning, cleaning and ironing!
    on Oct 15, 2011
    I woke up early this morning, mind full of ideas for the various bits I'm working for, came downstairs to a glorious sunny Autumn morning, and spent the next 2 hours ironing and cleaning...  I don't yet have my own work space, but note the...
  • The plan for today
    on Oct 15, 2011 in the LBD victorian costume sewing
    I have occasionally been accused of being scatty (who me!) and this week a couple of people have commented on the amount of things that I have going on at once.  I do, I always do.  I like to think through a project for as long as it takes...
  • Rascal and Dexter, showing us how it's done
    on Oct 15, 2011 in life
    I love my animals, little or large, and it is hard to see that Dexter isn't well.  He's an old guinea pig and he's outlived his brother by a year or so; the decline has been gradual but I think we are nearing the end.  He still has good mom...
  • It feels like a wasted weekYuck, have I been ill this week!  The first cold of the season, thanks to the good folk in my office.  Unexpectedly, and in hindsight how silly of me to be surprised, it effected the thyroid and I've had four days of nausea, retching and lo...
  • The 1880 Dinner Jacket - I'm finishing this today!So, 8.33am on a Sunday morning.  Can no longer "sleep" concertinaed around the dog and the boyf, plus I am having some very odd dreams, a sore throat and 36 pieces of fabric, 10 bones and a couple of yards of boning tape waiting for me.  No...
  • A culinary diversion: Vegan Shepherds Pie
    on Oct 9, 2011 in cooking
    After the celebratory drink I came back to a bit of housework and foodie dare.  The part-time vegan boyf would like Shepherds Pie for tea; and not the lentil kind.  We briefly discussed my making a vegan and a non-vegan option, but then he...
  • So near... but unfinishedI'm probably 80% done, but I did not finish the jacket today.  It was an inauspicious start to the afternoon's sewing: the first darts were too deep and had to be resewn; the second ones, I sewed in back to front, they too had to be resewn! &nbs...
  • Progress so far...10am:  the front darts are sewn in.  What is immediately obvious is that the twill interlining gives the fabric a life of it's own, the shape is extraordinary and there will definitely not be no slouching in this!  I still ha...
  • Steve Jobs: honouring his vision
    on Oct 7, 2011 in life
    Steve Jobs died.  Theannouncement happened whilst I was asleep. I found out during my morning scan of Facebook, which was full of messages about Jobs and his sadpassing.  It is testament to the man thatso many felt a connection to him. ...
  • "To be is to do." ~ Nietzsche
    on Oct 5, 2011 in halloween victorian costume making
    "To do is to be." ~ Kant"Do Be Do Be Do." ~ SinatraI am, I sure as heck have been doing, and who can resist a good sing'n hum in the process!Not only do I have the lining and interlining pieces now cut out for the Dinner Jacket;I have cut out the the...
