^ i'm hopeless with fabrics and i've done two sets of ikea drapes this way. it's easier than you think. just be careful, hang them first, mark the length you're looking for, pin, and only then cut and iron.

^thanks, i made it! woo hoo!

well, with a little help from my mother. these curtains are enormous and i wasn't able to handle them on my own, i don't have a table or an ironing board that big.. so i went to her place.. it is quite easy indeed! measure, hold the fabric in place, pin, iron seam, iron with seam strip and cut off the rest! no fancy stitching stuff. and they look good too!

cool. 4 more to go... some other time

I got my third tattoo a week ago. It's based on the Sweeney Todd movie, & I think it came out pretty sweet. No, I don't have a pic readily available; it's on my cell phone, & I have no idea how to transfer it over to the web. But it's almost exactly like this (minus the red "velvet" bag):

^^I have a friend who is a rabid Sweeney Todd fan, I'd love to see your tattoo when you've got a picture so I can rave about it to my friend

Announcing:
I won't be around so much the next couple of weeks as I'll be hectic busy. I've got a week off and I'm trying to cram as much in as possible which is challenging but fun Then I'll be off to capital cities to be even busier and maybe funner.

Capital cities of the states of Australia, I meant, not capitals of the world If only...

I will be keeping a sharp eye out for all sorts of toe-knucklebones, you never know where continental drift may have taken them. I'll be in Canberra and Sydney.
I love going to cities and scavenging for bits and pieces of art and craft things, like wire and shiny stones. It got to the point where a city friend of mine started saying 'No diving!' every time we walked past a dumpster

That's going to be part of the trip, catching up with friends and other people's rubbish, then the last four days of it will be an art school workshop sort of thing which I am very excited about getting into It's specifically 'drawing' (as opposed to painting or photography) to improve technical skills and I'm told it's very full on and there will be lots of important artists and art teachers.

That's really great! I hope you'll enjoy the course to the fullest. I liked your okapi book cover very much.

One day when you are a star in the art world you will think fondly of those dumpster dives.

Perhaps you will also think fondly of your finest paintings hotlinked in the museum of the image association thread, unto eternity.

I have not been around because I'd been in clown school.

Think Laurel and Hardy, not Bozo.

Please.
