Random and Odd

  1. Something with a story behind it.

    Lake Tahoe bag

    I made this little bag on a trip to Lake Tahoe. It’s single crochet, in the back loops only, so that every row has the little rib. I used recycled Thai sari silk yarn that I bought on ebay. I plan on lining it and adding a zipper so that I can carry stuff in my tote bag and not lose it as easily.

  2. A Random and Odd photo.


  3. In keeping with the recurring wedding theme, a photo of something borrowed.


    I didn’t borrow the cuff. I borrowed the loom from my daughter to make this cuff.

    Random and Odd



I finally finished the third Burda 8665. Buttonholes terrify me. I’m always afraid that I’m really going to screw them up. And it’s hard, altho not impossible, to recover from a buttonhole blunder.

The thing is that I use the programmed buttonholes in my Bernina 180E. They almost always come out perfect. In fact, I haven’t had a buttonhole blunder since I started using them.

But I’m still afraid.


or not, as the case may be.

Last night was DH’s night to get up with Chunguita. He said she was
coughing for 20 minutes straight, so he decided to give her some cough
medicine which she promptly threw up.

The big deal about this is that I slept thru it. I didn’t hear her
coughing or throwing up.

More Swimsuits

The latest Jalie 971

I finished another one, and no, I did not remember to add more coverage at the underarm. I am pleased that I managed to avoid flowers on the boob apex.

Fabric waiting to be made into a suit

I have the fabric shown to the right. I’m not sure how I want to lay out the swimsuit, so I asked on PR. I’m still not sure what I’m going to do, but they had some good suggestions.
