Feeling a bit disjointed and out of sorts lately - lots going through my head so how about a very random blog post?  If you're interested read on:

~ Last week I got a random catalog in the mail, don't even remember what company it was.  What I do remember is they had Halloween costumes.  There was a lovely cape (ala Sherlock Holmes) for $180.  I decided I could make it and got McCalls 5764 to do so.  Now to find the right fabric.

~ Saturday, I was catching up on blogs and while reading Gertie, came across this post: We Live In Good Body.  It really touched a nerve with me.  I can't get the ideas and words out of my mind.

~ I spent hours cleaning up the studio and sorting through old magazines this past weekend - now what to do with them?  I think I'll probably donate them to the library.

~ There's more, but I'll leave you with that.   g


  1. That cape is cute! I made a floor length one a few years back when we went to Renaissance Faire (and it was COLD there - I so needed it!) and have worn it to run out now and again. Sometimes I get really funny looks, but sometimes teen and 20-some girls will come up to me and ask where I got it, because it's cool. Funny what people notice, isn't it?

  2. Random is good Gaylen. Thank you for highlighting Gertie's "Good Body" post. I have been a bit disjointed myself lately and have been just glossing over my blog reading and totally missed the kernel of that post. After re-reading it closer I need to reflect a bit on that myself. And that cape will look fabulous...can't wait to see your progress!

  3. Love the style of the cape!

    I agree, important words in the Good Body post, if only we all kept them a little closer to our hearts. It's too easy to forget.

  4. What they've all said. I liked the post, I'm about there too. Can't sew a lick, but make what you love and wear it with a jaunty step and enjoy!

  5. What sort of fabric are you considering for the cape? I think it'll be neat. I made one similar to it years ago and wore it for a very long time. I don't remember whatever happened to it, but most likely me sister stole it.

    I think it's a good idea to accept yourself and take good care of the body you have.

  6. I'm a bit out of sorts myself. I need the HEAT to go away for a while and I need school to not be kicking my a$$. All in good time. ;)

    I don't read Gertie anymore (that's for an email not a comment) but I'm curious about this one. I might have to check it out.

  7. Love the caplet ~ I hope you find just the right fabric!

    What a strange name for that sock color in your previous post. It's such a practical and wearable color and it looks wonderful in the pattern you chose. Enjoy :)

  8. Speaking of Halloween, the boy informed me he wants to be a mummy and the girl wants to be a witch. At least they're easy this year. lol

    Good luck with your cape!

  9. There is a great issue which arises every time you go [B]abercrombie kids clothing[/B] shopping for a young boy that is the issue of buying clothes. The clothes of young boys who are at their growing age [U][B]abercrombie kids[/URL][/U][/B] are very difficult to buy. It is because of the rapid change in the height [B][URL=]abercrombie and fitch job[/URL][/B] and weight of these boys or the careless usage of clothes. The clothes do not last long and the parents feel [B]abercrombie and fitch kids[/URL][/B] that their money has totally wasted. They avoid buying many clothes for their young boys, but this is not the solution.

    When it comes to clothes that can last long and look good too, one should turn to the [B]abercrombie and fitch sale uk[/URL][/B] Abercrombie bomber jacket collection of the Abercrombie and Fitch fashion retailers. A bomber jacket never ******* loses its style and excellence and if it is an Abercrombie bomber jacket then [U]abercrombie and fitch london[/URL][/U] it will last longer than you think. It is durable and no matter how much carelessly your son uses this jacket, the fine quality of this jacket ******* will be very difficult to fade away. These jackets come in leather and often fur lined. These types of jackets are very common in young boys and look quite presentable.

    Now if someone wants to know what [B][URL=][/URL][/B] may suit a young man then the answer to this question is Abercrombie coat. Abercrombie coat is [B]abercrombie offers[/URL][/B] a stylish and decent option for all young men. As coats always remain in fashion and gives one a sober and decent look it the best choice for any man [B]abercrombie men[/B] who reflect these qualities. A winter wardrobe for a man seems incomplete without a coat. A coat [U][URL=]abercrombie guys[/URL][/U] should own or reflect some qualities that are very important and in fact necessary.

    So now you know [B]abercrombie & fitch underwear[/B] that when it comes for the shopping for [U]abercrombie and fitch outlet uk[/URL][/U] your winter wardrobe for men and young boys, the best possible [U][URL=]cheap abercrombie[/URL][/U] option will be that of, Abercrombie and Fitch.
