Ok I won't pretend to know what Jason speaks of when he is doing something with his computer. All i will say is that I know using the words motherboard and fried in the same sentence is a BAD thing. So on boxing day we were at Future Shop.. aka hell and bought a new computer.

I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas

So, I love Christmas as much as anyone else. But this is too much white. I had planned on going to Kamloops BC with my boyfriend and his family. I guess there muse be a lot more snow than i thought because the Greyhound Station was closed. So we are staying home just the two of us (four if you count the cats). So I am making us a lovely Christmas steak dinner with all the trimming I can find. We exchanges gifts last night, so he in enjoying the new headset i got for his video games and I have a lovely new digital camera (YIPPIEEEEEEE) I can take decent pictures of my projects. Love to all and I hope you have a very happy holiday.

Made a little something for my honey. He asked for a bag to keep his stones in so I set to work. I think he got a little more than he asked for. Lucky for me it passed inspection.

Hat Part 3

So it has been another 12 hours of work. If i get this done by january it will be a mericle. But it is looking good. I have 3 more patterns to do then I am ready to assemble. --I hope--

Halloween Costume

So I finally pulled Jason's coat out of the closet for a picture. Not the best quality but it works. Needless to say he loves it and looks very dashing in his whole pirate regalia. A lovely royal blue upholstery velvet with black corduroy cuffs and silver buttons (about 40 of them). I will get a picture of him in it next month at the big event.


So it is only a few days away. Do you think i am done sewing. NO. I have a ton more to do and it is great trying to get the stuff done for the boy when he is stuck at home due to the snow. Hopefully it is better tomorrow and I can get him out of the house. I can say what i am doing but Shhhhh. He never checks my blog anyway. He needs a new doublet for fencing. So I am making him one... in the period way though. All handsewn. (i think i am nuts) a lovely cobalt blue wool gabridene with black trimming and handmade buttons. I will get pictures up when I have them. As for the snow. I have a couple of pictures

I woke up this morning and it was snowing. I was really nice looking out my front window and seeing a flurry of little whiter things falling from the sky; making it cold, wet, yucky, mucking up traffic and life in general. Did I forget to mention that I walk to the market on Fridays. Now i get to walk, with my grocery trolley in the snow. Ohhhh goodie. I think I am going back to bed.

1 AM

So it is now approx. 1:30 am and I can barely keep my eyes open. I have been planning on making my lord a new fencing doublet for yule. DO YOU THINK I CAN DO THAT... Noooooooo. He is always curious about what I am making and love to watch me sew or doing embroidery. (handwork of garb is how I pass the time when he is playing video games) So I had to lie through my teeth, say I was going to sleep early and as soon as I knew he was asleep, get up and sew. Now the issue is that the machine rattles the table and makes a ton of noise. Sooo i am posting this out of sleep deprived annoyance. I will just sit on the couch and work on it by had, it's easier to do the padding that way. When it gets to look like a piece of clothing and not a pile of fabric i will post a picture. Until then I had better get some more work done before he wakes and discovers I am not there.

Well, Thanksgiving is over and done with for another year. It has made me think a lot over the past weekend. There was no great feast in my house, just my boyfriend, our roomie and myself. I made a little chicken with a few side dishes. I sometimes forget that I live in another country now. Many if my friends say it's just Canada, but up here they celebrated thanksgiving over a month ago. It is sometimes difficult being away from my family, especially on the holidays.
Yule is no exception. Due to work schedules I will be going home a week or so before to see my family. The I will be going with my boyfriend to his families home on the day of. A little sad for me. I will miss the big family gathering. Who knows what will happen though.
The best I would like to have this season is for everyone to be happy and safe. But as the work stands now I hope that isn't too much to ask for.
