nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

lime is the new black

After the owls & chocolate minky blanket I made as a housewarming gift for my friend, her brother came to live with her and he decided that he wanted one too. Now pink and brown is kinda girly, so I chose the whales in the carnival colorway with a lime green dimple dot, and I quite liked the punch that the green gave!

So there I am, thinking how much I like that green color, and how the store where I bought it at tried to get more in and can’t, and I saw a gorgeous lime green minky shag.  This is at the same time that I got my husband’s black shag for his man cave blanket, and he started telling me every day how amazing the minky shag is and how I need my OWN minky shag blanket. So I made one!

And I LOVE it!  This one, like the other shag, is about 72″x60″ making it the perfect size to curl up underneath and snuggle up to! And the green makes me forget that just last week, our house looked like this:


And there’s likely going to be more before summer is officially here.

bro bro likes his belt…

i met with my brother for lunch today and gave him his b-day gear.

it's hard to believe sometimes that we're related...

now he won't lose his pants whilst rocking too hard...

he’s also proclaimed that the pouch is the perfect size for picks, string, tuner, and other such rocking-out type instruments… 😀

mission accomplished!

 

dum dee dum dum…

it’s been pretty uggh around here. it’s the last day of summer and we’ve gotten our second overnight snowfall this month… and it’s still technically summer!!!

i’ve been working really hard on a side project developing a Flash application for a multitouch surface for ACH and i’ve hardly had any time at all to sew. but that didn’t stop me from whipping up these beauties for my brother’s bday next week!

my brother is turning 25 this year, and i’m his big sis by 3-1/2 years, so he was really the last of our kind – the 80’s children that had a great love for tetris, atari, and all things involving 8-bit music. this tetris print was perfect, and orange is his favorite color too…

he’s also a rockstar AND his pants are always falling down, so this really is the perfect gift for him. 😀 all hail the simple-to-make-in-an-hour-d-ring-belt! so i think that’s all i’ve got. did i tell you i found some castle peeps for $2.50 per half-yard at Fabritopia? oh baby, oh baby, oh BABY! i got 2 yards of the flag print in each colorway. ok, now i’m done.
