a little blog about crafting, sewing, nothing, & everything.


Here’s an update on the stuffed robot I’ve dubbed “Robbie the Hate Machine”. Things are going pretty well and he’s coming together more easily than I thought. I have yet to figure out how to put some kind of antenna on his head, but that will come soon hopefully. I figured out that I am going to have to hand sew (expletive.) his feet on because I don’t think I can sew that narrow of a circle on the machine.

Lately, I’ve been feeling like I need more art in my life. I keep seeing things that other people have created and thinking I would enjoy sketching again. Also, I discovered the luxury that is Micron brand pens. Below is a drawing I did for someone that was a pretty cool project to finish. I call it “Girl in Red”.

Also, as stated previously, I finished the Entrelac scarf. Here’s the proof. I redact my statement earlier about it reminding me of Neapolitan icecream. It now makes me want salt water taffy.

So that is what I’ve been working on for fun. Below is what I should be doing for..not fun / work: a formal outfit for some wedding.

It’s going to be a tea-length A-line skirt with a fitted gathered-strap top. (This top includes button closures.) So far, it’s just fabric, and it’s due in about two weeks. I can’t remember the number on the pattern; otherwise I’d post a picture. I’ll just describe it for you: it’s a pattern for a skirt and a top, it’s on brown tissue paper, and it appears relatively simple with the possible exception of those button holes that I’m about to have to do on satin.

I hope for my own sake that I have updates on the last project soon.

It’s about to storm and I can’t wait.
