The second part of my book order came yesterday, and I got this. At first glance, it’s not as impressive looking, although it’s hardcover and ringbound. The author is a little more serious-sounding, but she still writes basically enough for me to understand (I mean about sewing..I am not simple..). The book has the patterns enclosed, so there is no printing out and arranging various sheets to stick together, etc., but seeing the pattern pieces just there in all their thin brown paper glory gets me a bit nervous. Flicking through the book though, there are a huge amount of designs to make from just adapting some of the patterns. And they are ALL for women…he he. Gives me an excuse to focus on my own clothes for a while. I’m itching to try the boatneck and the baby doll, but in the interests of development, I think I will start from the beginning and work through.
Another thing I discovered this week that I LOVE, is the Hipstamatic camera application for iPhone. It makes even the worst photos I could take look very cool indeed. And some of them remind me of some photos I took where I accidentally exposed the film before winding back. Great effects. Trouble is, there are lots of packages to buy as add-ons…must be satisfied for a while before going down that route. Basic package for around 200 yen. Not bad. So I am attaching a load of pics from that. Oh, and I am going down the slideshow route for a while, because I can never get my photos in the right order on here!!!
