fashion is danger

I love me some Flight of the Conchords, and this one’s about fashion! Thanks to Sadie, one of my 5th graders, for sending this to me. :)

Frosted leaves

I’ve been going on walk-abouts around my work neighborhood lately, noticing all the things one finds on the ground in the pacific northwest during autumn/winter. First there were the leaves, vivid like flames. Then the moss, growing in velvety clumps through sidewalk cracks. Finally, last week (and for a short time only) there was frost, lacing leaves and branch tips.

I’ve been thinking about cloaks a lot lately…i’ll be making one for a friend just as soon as i hit winter break!

I am really in love with this poster for the hunger games. Very cool.

Dolman sleeves and spelling question

Design tape on gray jersey, learned how to make a dolman sleeve. (Is that how dolman is spelled? I know some of you lovely sewing blog writers will know the answer.)
