Z and I were pottering around this morning, getting into work mode, when the internet went down. It’s like, oh… and yeah, even the modem was red and angry. tl;dr, they were doing work on the main cable on the main road, and it took out pretty much everyone in the village. We were worried that it was gonna be… Read more »

My new needles came in today! So now they’re loaded up in my pretty case, and I made labels for each pocketeses. I’ve got bigger ones tucked behind the top row ’cause there was ‘only’ 9 pockets for circulars.

There’s an equal chance that I’ll decide to try to go a few more inches for lulz. It’s been… a day. I got… Read more »

I found someone on Etsy that sells their ‘proper’ circular case, so it’s a consideration. If I could sew… Read more »
