i have had a headache for two days straight now. tonight zachary and i went to see our pal kris racer play at schuba's with a full band. walking through the bar was hell. i hate smoke. so much. i cannot wait until the smoking ban goes into effect. we stopped in at jewel to pick up some more OJ for me who is now the sicky boo. then i came back and sewed some coasters for a co-worker's birthday. i had already bought her a gift for xmas and i'd forgotten her bday was next week, so i figured i'd make her something. she loves christmas stuff so i used snowflake fabric and then two other fabrics and voila. they are not perfect, but i think they are pretty good for a first try. in the middle i used wool felt.
last night (tuesday) i went to the hideout and met sei-jin there for for the holiday sale and then picked ginny up and headed to relax lounge for the venus winter issue launch party. had a couple free effen vodka drinks and went back home to make lentils. the night before that i made alex's christmas present and took lots of photos of hoggle (3 of which i made new postcards of). alex, i know you're home a lot more with your new job, so you are likely reading lj on a more regular basis, so don't look at what is behind the cut:
the zipper was an experience since i just winged it and i didn't take out the zipper foot becaue i couldn't remember where it was, so...it still works, but it would have been better. i think alex will still like it. also, miss alison says she will give me a zipper tutorial, so i will wait until then to try adding another zipper to one of these.
here are the photos i had made into postcards. i'll sell them in sets of three. limited to 100 sets. w00t.
there are a lot more photos of him here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/madflowr/sets/72157603448636711/
also, monday night i sewed a thing to go around his pvc pipe to make it a bit more interesting for him. he pooped and peed in his other tunnel thing and it will have to be hand washed which i haven't had the time or energy to do, so i figured this was a quick solution. he likes it!
