Fluff, crafting and glee.

Fluffy post while I am hard at work on something so awesome I can't even tell you but it will be MOTHER FUCKING EPIC WIN.

So I have been working that one resolution I made to be more crafty. Thus far I have made two slightly ugly hats, an unintended wiener cozy, a strangely super circular purse thing that I cannot figure out how to put the closure in because I overdid it with the tension in the stitches, and one mystery item that I realized last night looks like a cock tapestry.

I decided to keep my fuck ups because they might be fuck ups but I made them and I love them.

I also purchased two super cheap books on crocheting on ebay and just as of yesterday have been rebitten by the embroidery bug. I embroidered quite a bit as a wee tot and think I can do it again because I have ideas of geeky/pervy samplers. Who doesn't need a nerdy sampler?

It feels really nice to be making things.

However it is kind of a stressful thing for me to have to spend money to do these things. Coming from being fairly poor for a large majority of my life spending money on things that are just pleasurable is hard sometimes.

In other news, I am still not sewing regularly. I have ideas for recons but I just haven't gotten myself to do them.

I think it would help if I could draw which I can't unfortunately.


Yeah I am spent. Other projects in the winds my homies.

Homo Out.

Pervy embroideries? I am so there.

Today is such a pretty day I'm thinking of taking my lace pillow outside and stitching in the sun.

Of course you should keep your mistakes! As you get better, you'll be able to see your progress and really explain it to anyone who wants to know. Besides, I have a few seriously confused bits of bobbin lace sitting in my workbasket, too. They are fucked up, but they are mine and I love them.
