Having some fun with my vacation photos and the Big Huge Lab's Palette Generator. I should make a weird palette for the EFB...the real one.

Superhero cape

My niece in Omaha turned 3 last week; my sister thought she would like a cape to be a superhero when she plays dress-up. I followed the tutorial at Puking Pastilles (apparently a Harry Potter reference), substituting an initial for the logo.

I think she liked it. One of my sister's friends asked me if I'd make one for her (maybe; I told her to ask my sister for my e-mail and we'll see if it even gets that far) and several of the adults thought I could start a small business (not interested in making capes every night). More importantly, my niece wore it some that afternoon and a little yesterday, and after I got dropped off at the airport, she told her mom she missed me. Yeah!

I might make one for myself.

Finished: Quilted EFB

It's complete and hanging in my cubicle. Reactions from co-workers range from "You need to get a life" to "You forgot the brightness toggle." Artistic license, I say...

Technically, it's just the display portion of the EFB. In fail mode. Bwahahahaha.

Good day to dye.

Ugly fabrics:

Turned into possibly usable fabrics:

And still-ugly fabrics:

They may live to dye another day, but I don't think anything can salvage that top one.

And random acts of shibori:

3-day weekend

I had a big list of things I wanted to do this weekend, and I kind of bounced around from item to item, completing none of them. Had a good time at the Brewers game Friday, at least, and I found a box that had--rectangle sequins!

Here's a picture of my assistant, FUZZ.
