While the first of our winter storms rages outside I am busy unsubscribing all my feeds from Google Reader and playing a serious game of catch-up in my new one. Just in time really as July 1 is looming and ideally I’d like to get my data off Google before it dies.
I have ended up with The Old Reader as it seems simpler than pretty much everything else I tried or looked at and thus far works much like Google Reader. And as a “bear of little brain” I don’t want social media this and formatty that, so its just me and my subscriptions thank you. So far I am happy with my choice though suspect that either it’ll stop being free soon or will go the way of GR in the not too distant future. I can live with that.
Other than that and the demands of my other life I have been rearranging my sewing room. Moving furniture around to make room for a wonderful new piece of sewing equipment – a very large 1.2 square meter peg board made by fabulous Pip-who-sews (very clever girl Pip). I just need more pegs. A lot more pegs.
Oh and I am further avoiding sewing those damned skinny trousers with this …. (view A apparently) in a crinkly light cotton. Perfect for winter and work. Not.
Of course a muslin is in the works.
PS I haven’t done three muslins of the skinnies. I haven’t. Truly. I haven’t been sewing them in 10 minute increments either or bolloxing them up one and all. Not me. Nope.
