i'm a greebo in training. kill me.

yes, enter the greebo lady. i finally started modifying the pair of jeans i never wear any more with bits of fur and velvet and corduroy and lace. including big triangular inserts. they should look very cool when they're done, though ;) will take a photo.

saw pirates of the caribbean again today; it gets funnier the second time.

i'm having lots of trouble coming up with a halloween costume. i don't have time to make the sally-the-ragdoll outfit i was meant to be making, what with going back to uni on the 20th, and i'm down to two last resorts (which i won't tell you in case i end up using one of them) - and so, i need suggestions. movie theme. you'd think i'd be able to come up with something...

bear in mind i will only have my own wardrobe, and charity shops at my disposal, even though there are five costume shops in derby - i will only go there if a wig is required, which is very likely.

help! give me suggestions!

and, yes, i already went through all the tim burton movies, and everything winona ryder's been in. ;)

they're done! and it wasn't as hideous as i was expecting; the worst bit was trying to stop the velvet stretching while sewing it (bloody cheap velvet...) and actually putting the inserts into the jeans once i'd patched them together...

i'd forgotten how much fun it was making things! :) and since i've proven that i can patchwork using pretty much anything, i know the plan i had for the sally-outfit would have worked. except now i have no time to do it, no fabric, and no sewing machine at uni, so i'll definitely have to think of something else.

i'm very proud of myself. i didn't break the sewing maching, and i remembered how it threaded and how to re-thread the bobbin and everything. :)

and! on top of that, i managed to cook a chicken, and it was edible. and if you know how much i hate raw meat, you'll realise what an achievement it was...
