twice is almost a habit, right?

oh HAI.

So we hosted make + do #2 on the weekend, which I am pretty excited about, because it officially means that:

a) we actually did something we planned, rather than just talking about it

b) we did something TWICE. I know. commitment.

c) we convinced OTHER people to do stuff, and I have evidence…

Exhibit A:

That right there is a model internal combustion engine. I have it on good authority that this got completed, but here’s what it was looking like by the end of the afternoon. Just in case you were wondering (I was), this is what is in your car, albeit in a small, uncomplicated, and plastic form. I’ll add this to the list of  things I should know about but most definitely do not. I believe one of its assemblers uttered “I don’t do cogs” during its assembly process. I concur.

Exhibit B:

Brad traced icospheres for a TBA project. Wow, look at that serious tracing face…

… which is all well and good, but this is what he *actually* looked like:

Look at that chair! It’s an old hairdresser’s chair we got off ebay. It’s beautiful, but gosh darn it adjusts to an unreasonably high level! Also, sneaky tidbit, the lightbox he’s using was for viewing x-rays in a past life. Neat huh?

Exhibit C:

I don’t have a photo for this, but I know Brendan was drawing creatures. Creatures to fill these landscapes (aren’t they really cool?).


hm. ok. no exhibit for me. I worked on a (technically) really easy sundress that somehow magicked itself in to being fiendishly difficult (read: I seemed to glaze over when reading instructions, and unpicked more seams than I sewed). It has joined my large pile of UnFinished Objects. Next month, I super mega pinky promise myself that I will do some mending. You may think I’m being unnecessarily whiny about this, but I dislike mending, and it is not a benign pile of one or two clothing items. It is this:

I suspect it will soon grow legs and walk off, probably wearing the hat that is peeking in at the bottom of the picture (and also needs mending).

Speaking of next month, with Make + Do II over and successful, we will continue with the once-a-month schedule. The next session is tentatively scheduled for February (yes, you should click on that) 11th, see you then ;o).

And what’s that I hear you say? No photos of the dog? Well alright… just one…
