Primark hacks and some weirdness....

I've been trying to keep up with the crafting, my eternity crochet prject is still on the go, but I get bored with too much of repetition, so do other stuff at the same time....
I had some bits that I bought from Primark sale rack (god I love the sale racks), but never been using them, so I gave them a little change so this time I might use them....
First was a Guns'n Roses body, which I like, but just don't like the idea of opening press buttons in a sweaty crotch, so I decided to marry it with a skirt I've had in the cupboard for ages, so a bit of chop chop, and result.
The other one was a top I grabbed, and noticed it was a bit small, it fits though, but it's short, so I added a little fabric to make it into a nice summer dress, BAM!

 This one is cheap polyester knit  that I made into a tunic, but never used it, so I took in from the sleeves, maybe with a different fit, I'll actually wear it....

This one is a knit dress I bought from a charity shop for 50p (them sale racks....) but as I'm not very beige, I had to add something to the dress, and the Karelian emroidery was perfect idea for the hem. I got the practice, and the dress got a little colour.

We have been watching Bill Nye the Science Guy, and I get fanny flutter, he is hot!
that's about it for now, it has been relatively good weather wise, so have been taking every chance for going outside, and will post some pics of our trip to Cruden Bay last week....

But for now, ta ta bitches.

Spring

It's here, sunshine and warm(ish) weather. For the few days it lasts here :)
Did a school fair selling my crafts, still crocheting my forever project, lil' un got a keyboard to learn to play the piano. I've been hunting for 2nd hand El Naturalista shoes, as I can't afford new ones, but ebay is sucking big time, so no luck. That pretty much sums up the last few months....
I try to ignore internet discussions as people are just too fucking dumb.
 The schnose.
 Bender is my fav!
Pippi Longstocking phone cover.
 Bits and bobs.
 Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice......
 Rocky Horror
 Hunky kitchen curtains to truly bring that spring into my chest.
 Marimekko fabric into a curtain
Sons Of Anarchy little shoulder bag
 Pimped up winter cape

Leggings with added decoration



 Derp!

 Looks so amusing, amazing weather and all that....

That's it for now. Back to my Metal Slug gaming.....

You can't fix stupid.....

OMG, the wonderful world of interwebs and it's people has yet again managed to "brighten" my day. This time it's because a fat girl got a modelling contract, and the world is now screaming how she is apparently promoting obesity. WTF.
Common sense truly is disappearing. I've looked at pictures of skeletal junkie models most of my life, but has it never occurred to me that THEY have been promoting LIFESTYLE. I just thought they were skinny ladies walking as clothes horses.
Seriously.
This statement makes no logic. If someone thinks that pic of a lady with larger lumps might sell their products, then, that would be their choice. In no way do I see that it automatically means that this is somehow promoting obesity, or make me wanna go gorge myself into the size of a mountain, just 'cos I saw a pic.
These people who use this logic better stop watching Jeremy Kyle, as it promotes chav-lifestyle, or Jerry Springer Show, as it promotes having sex with transsexuals and their gay/straight friends and siblings, then having a punch up. Or watching Dexter promoting killing criminals.
I find it rather patronising, and also makes you wonder have these people never taken personal responsibility over their actions.....
Fat people have existed even in history, and will exist.
Thin people get sick and die too, it's not just for fatties. I know skinny people with diabetes, heart problems etc etc.....
 We need to learn to tolerate others, and most of all, mind our own business. It is not taking anything away from anyone, if a lady happens to like her lumps, or *gasp* have confidence when bigger size....
Rant over.

A masterpiece!

I watched Pacific Rim the other day. The movie made after a game. Never played the game, had low expectations, as I'm usually not a great fan of superhero stuff or comicy things turned into movies. Well, it was ace, and Charlie Hunnam was mmmmm. However, this post isn't about that movie, as after the movie a wanted to watch something else while I do crafting, and I put on Dirty Shame by John Waters. I love Cry Baby and Hairspray, and this movie wasn't a disappointment either. It was fucking awesome! I had many a loud laughs, and the over-the-top approach made it so entertaining too! Some of the lines will be something for me to recite in the future, here are the best ones:

"Don't you find it funny how every man in this neighbourhood has a penis?"

"Ooh my pussy's on fire!"

"Mailmen are beating off everywhere!"

"You wanna have funch?"

"People are shaving their crotches as we speak!"

"Feel like yodelling in the canyon, discover the oyster"

"That's what I call sneezing in the cabbage!"

"Does he ever whistle in the dark?"

"Let's go to the Holiday House and fuck the whole bar!"

Memorable phrases were also "my clitoris is in crisis" and "runaway vagina".

I laughed so much. It was funny, over the top, camp and pure entertainment, or what do you expect from a movie with characters called Fat Fuck Frankie or Ursula Udders.

I must watch it again someday soon. A movie definitely worth looking up, as I was gobsmacked I've not seen it before.

It's done

Well that's yet another chrimbo done and dusted. Next year I won't be cooking, it's gonna be take away all the way. I do love the traditional Finn foods in yuletide, but it's hard work, and this year had 8 mouths to feed too....
I just remembered, don't think I've ever posted a pic of the bureau I painted up for lil'un.

Didn't take a pic with all the knobs back in place, but one day will make a lot better version, as the paints on this one were fucking awful.-von bitch

'tis the time to.....

So, been a while. Crafting, teaching the lil'un to sew, and watching shit christmas movies seem to be the thing for me at the moment.
I'm quite homesick too, which is making the mehs.
 There's been windy but pretty evenings....
 Made myself a little elf hat....
 And a dress for lil'un
 Went ice skating, next time will have acquire my own skates, these rented ones were horrible!
 Some decoration for the backyard....
 Reflector brooch as a xmas pressie
 Some scrap crafting...
Learning....
Dogs need reflective vests too!
Played with my camera, thinking about getting a lens set for it, as it is good, even though it's old.....

Winter Urgh

Well it's been quiet. It has been the season of mehs, fever and general crap. Working still on my cro(t)chet scarf, thin yarn and smallish hook is making it take an eternity. Alongside I'm doing the usual xmassy shit too. Did some no-budget crafting on halloween, and now it continues with xmas things.
 As it tends to piss it down here a lot, made a raincover from an old pram cover for little ones school bag.
 Also whipped up a fleece jacket from old blankets. Not perfect but cosy enough.
 Same fabrics made a nice wrap up fleece. Currently obsessed with the wrap around model, but really struggle to find hoodies so better make it myself then.
 Some cheapo halloween crafts
 These are still above my door. Some colour into the shit winter.
 My ofrenda, mixed in with Karelian things and mexi-inspiration.
 Mase a little light wreath for the window, as it is dark.....
 And reflectors!!!! Best way to go too, some schnauzering....
Got this beauty from ebay, sent from America, Finnish vintage design, Kalevala jewellery. Me likey alot!!!!!

Bonfire night sparkles...
Poundshop crafts, a little wreath for the door, soon it's time... :D


I was chuffed to get the Kalevala piece, as I do like their jewellery, have some already, and this one is based on a find from Karelia I believe, so nothing better than historical background too.

Also very pleased, my local health shop seems to stock Village Bakery Rye bread, so that is bonus, fed up with british "brown" bread.

Nothing else of interest is going on. I spend my evenings crafting and watching either Geordie Shore or Family Guy. I know, one fucking classy chick, but who cares.....
