Sorry about the radio silence

It's the year of the snake!  Also, I love lion dancers.

…I don’t really have a good excuse? We moved back at the end of October, which was lovely, but we are totally still unpacking and organizing! As in my sewing machine wasn’t set up until last week. I also was without an ironing board until yesterday. Whoo!
My new neighborhood has a lot of corgis.  I really want one.

I do have to say that I feel a bit weird not having any sewing/costuming projects up and running, especially since con season is just around the corner. My costuming buddies are talking about getting the Jinouga armor up and running…but both I and Lobster haven’t found a good time to meet up for that. (I know, I need to make the time.) But we did did find the time to make this happen:
MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!  Seven years dungeon! No trial!

Oh, but I did teach myself how to knit since my sewing machine was out of commission. I totally blame Tasia’s post on knitting her own socks. I am a sockophile and the prospect of locally designed DNA socks was irresistible. Oh, and to knit some fake chainmail for my Hermitaur armor. Of course, now that knitting is in my repertoire, I started by knitting a whole bunch of gifts for my family and friends:
Fingerless mitts for our organist friend

Totoro Scarf for Lobster.  And bunny slippers for me.

So yes, hopefully I’ll get my sewing station up an running sometime soon! I hear there’s a friend’s gothloli dress in the planning stages….
