I am usually disorganized, but I just love having my fabric strips and crumbs locked up together in their own little sandwich bags. I actually tried to break this habit because it takes extra time to get the fabric out of the baggies and then back in again. And I'm slow enough as it is. But I can't stand how wrinkly and frayed everything gets when it's all mashed together.
Additionally, when I'm making letters I like to have various widths of matching fabric so if I have to search around in the bin that's even slower than having to baggy, debaggy, rebaggy, debaggy and on and on.
To fit as many scraps as I could into our suitcases when we were coming from Paris I debaggified my fabric. I wonder how much space that actually saved me? So now I'm spending time redoing it. Argh. But what a relief to have my strips protected from fraying and wrinkling.
This was the cats first 4th of July in the U.S. The loud booms made them nervous but I was surprised at how brave they were - Pokey actually stared out the window the whole time. I could see fireworks from my balcony so I had two nights of great viewing. Of course up on the roof would be even better. Or get that other group of condos relocated...
I first saw An Engineer's Guide to Cats over at Force Majure Farm. What a hoot this is. If you love cats (or engineers) try it:
Oh the gravity. I don't think my cats would take to yodeling...
I am finally now completely and totally caught up with Burn Notice and The Closer. I love both shows. But this new detective woman who was dogging Michael? Annoying. And of course she's young and attractive; how predictable and boring. I'd much rather have a crusty old-timer who actually knows something - like Provenza and Flynn. Would be interesting to see who would come out ahead in a duel between these two teams. I think the spy crew, even though Brenda has never met a case she couldn't solve.
On the subject of annoying characters, I just hope Brenda's parents don't make an appearance this season - that was just way too much last year.
Has anyone else been watching The Fashion Show on Bravo? Real fashion for real people? Eh?Who are they trying to kid. Had the designers make clothes for humans (instead of "walking clothes hangars") and you got tears. Can't say I like anyone on this show. All the contestants are annoying and the hosts seem catty rather than helpful. I miss Tim Gunn! Anyway, I still keep watching the show so what does that say about me? I love watching creativity, even when it's terrible.
Not like we needed another fashion reality show. Bravo could have done Top Artist instead - that could be fascinating and it's not like they'd need a lot of expensive equipment. Here, crayons, paste, scissors and glue. Go!
