I’m slowly getting started with Erik’s quilt. I first tried to draw the hexagons myself, but only had some black card around. It has so much texture that the graphite point in my compass gets[…]
I got it in my head to make a quilt for Erik, by the time he moves into his own room/needs bedding, which will still take months. His room is now light grey and white,[…]
If you stumble upon this, please keep in mind that at the time of this writing, I haven’t sewn a single quilt. I’ve sewn this bag, and that’s the extent of my “patchwork”. It has[…]
I’ve embarked in my latest venture ;P it’s been a while since I tried something new. I have a project for some 50 cards which I wanted to make by hand, my deadline is about[…]
I haven’t really been posting here. I think I mentioned some time ago that we bought a house in need of full renovation. So that’s been keeping us busy (that and… our full time jobs,[…]
With warmer temperatures approaching, I do not run off to the shops. Spring is generally dreadful, and this year is no exception, everything is pink. I ordered some black and grey jersey fabric (I can’t[…]
Ok, I finally was able to download my liveJournal that I used from 2003 to approx fade out in 2011. After week upon week of trying and a lot of patience I had to start[…]
My website had been down for a while due to technical issues. I finally decided to nearly start over.My previous website was too complex and difficult to update, and the blog integration didn’t quite deserve[…]
I got this cloche (actually a cheese dish with… cloche?) in a local thrift shop, a couple of years ago. I thought it was dirty or just covered in hard water marks. The lightning in[…]
Apart from a couple of posts about the Joies d’artista expo, I have been quite silent. Truth is… something was going on! We bought a house! as in, really a house (I have always lived in[…]
My boyfriend just gave me this lens for my birthday! I am not at all familiar with it yet, of course, and the light is gone now (argh!) but I anticipate much fun :))) […]
I haven’t posted in a while… again, but this time I had a reason not to! It all started with my web hosting company going rogue on me. Word to the wise: if you are[…]
Miltonia Phalaenopsis http://lokibicho.tumblr.com/ https://twitter.com/#!/Loki_bicho Phalaenopsis After a long, long break, three of my orchids are in bloom! The miltonia was first, and one bud on each of the phalaenopsis have just opened,[…]
Just finished it! perhaps it needs a little ironing… Too big for the XS mannequin of course. Inside out I got a couple of sports bras two days ago (the only ones I found that[…]
Well underway with this dress! I am so far very happy with the results. I like to think that this green is flattering to me, and the fabric is oh so soft! I worry about[…]
Last Monday I bought some fabric on a whim, 1m of very soft grey jersey rayon and 0.5m of a vibrant mossy green, for a short sleeved dress. The grey is rather beautiful, very slightly[…]
I have spent the entire day cleaning up and organising my sewing corner (also all the ironing things are there). It had become an incredible sprawling mess in the last year or so, to the[…]
I’m done smallifying! just washed them. Here are almost all my band t-shirts, a few that were clean are not there ;P From front to back: Darkthrone*, Obituary*, Deicide*, Anathema*, Darkthrone, Cathedral*, Paradise Lost*, Katatonia,[…]
Loki in Barcelona, August. Loki giving Mino grief. There is one thing that Mino doesn’t like, and that’s having his tail touched. But Loki cannot resist. Pim playing with Loki.
On my new jewellery table.
Male coworker: *walks in with his trousers caught up into his socks* Several female coworkers: *point and laugh* Me: Hey, I like it. Couple of coworkers: *sarcastic laughter* Me: No, really, I like it, knickerbockers![…]
A hybrid between a coca de pinyons (pine nut cake) and a coca de yogurt (yoghurt cake). Take a strawberry/lemon/natural yoghurt (if natural, also add lemon zest), spoon it out into a bowl/blender. Individual yoghurts[…]
