Pictures: some of fail, some of win....

Plaid. Need I say more?

Brand new, unopened MacBook Pro box on the front seat, at night, Illuminated by the streetlights. Just missing the neon sign "Hey, please break my window, cause damage to my car and steal my very expensive computer equipment!!!" (I was so flabbergasted by this, I just *had* to take a picture)

Cute ass dogs that are so happy to see you when they get home!

CSI Minivan in SLC. I'm calling it.....WIN. "Whoooooooo are you.....who! who! Whoooooooooooooo are you?! Daaaaaadadadadaaaah"

Ana de Mendoza: Princess? check. Considered one of the most beautiful and talented women of her time? check. Led an intriguing life? check. Eye-freakin' patch? CHECK-MATE!

Embroidery Update

I am absolutely determined to finish this project. No, really. I will completely finish ONE embroidery project (says the gal who has 4-or was it 5? unfinished embroidery projects kicking around.)

I'm never picking up embroidery again, ever. (Or at least until I start on my slips project, that is....)

Ok, to the pictures.

I am really getting the bug to sew again, but I'm afraid if I put the embroidery down, I won't pick it back up again. But I don't want to wait months and months before I can make anything new. Argh. Not enough time in my little world right now. Where's my dang lotto money?!

Informative post is....informative!

I've been interested in astrolabes for a long time (and not just because it's a really cool word!) and a couple of years ago, I started gathering up as much information I could find. By complete happenstance, I stumbled across this video which shows *exactly* how to use one! (I kind of knew the theory behind it all, but I wouldn't be able to put it into practice)
