I've discovered that for organizing stuff, there's a sweet-spot in terms of container space, where divisions are not so small I feel I have to find a specific location for Every Single Thing (which takes forever and is unmaintainable), but not so big I have to dump the whole container out and sift through it piece by piece to find an item. Unfortunately the ideal size varies by type of item, but I've found the bins for Kallax shelf units from Ikea are a good size for a lot of stuff, and the units look nice. I'm in the process of sewing up some smaller bags and whatnot for things that need a better level of organization than that - like my crochet hooks, which inevitably require me dumping out my whole bag of fiber arts tools to find.

If you need a break from post-election stress, and don't mind subtitles (or really fake Russian accents in the dub, I guess), do yourself a favor and watch Yuri!!! On Ice AKA men's figure skating the anime AKA gay chicken on ice. It's charming and hilarious and gorgeous and somehow manages to get gayer every week. Share in this small ray of sunshine with me.

...your solution to crappy bundled label-making software is to spend two hours figuring out a way to do it programmatically, which at current time involves gLabels, three different methods of editing CSV files, and ImageMagick commandline scripts, but which I may be able to coalesce into one commandline script, one method of editing CSV files, and gLabels.

Implementation details, for the curious, because I like to natter )

All this because the Avery software is shitty and lost three hours of my work because it said it had saved it but hadn't really.

NOT DEAD YET. Or, ideally, any time soon I guess. I just feel like writing coherent multi-sentence posts has been getting harder and harder for me over the last few years, and the last few months in particular - even my cosplay WIP posts on tumblr are like 'here's a photo I crossposted from IG bye now'

(the single-sentence posts go on plurk, which, like Twitter, is somewhere between a blogging platform and asynchronyous chat client, and thus don't handle crosspost coherently).

Starting a new job next week, at a company that does application security testing. I'm simultaneously excited and terrified, which I think is pretty normal. Been doing lots of sewing and Netflix in the meantime.Stranger Things was excellent and very spooky, TNG is REALLY dated in some respects, but fun to watch in order, and Parks and Recreation continues to be hilarious.

More at some point, probably?

A pile of screen printing for Ieyasu - just have the pants overlay and the back of the vest left to go! #cosplay #sengokubasara

Edge lace for my sleeves - I did this on my embroidery machine, on a poly organza with heavy wash-away stabilizer, and then cut the diamonds out and hand-sewed them on.



After much experimenting, the tricks to using metallic thread without it snapping are to keep tension super-low, let the thread spool out from far away (I have it in a mug about a foot away), and don’t make your stitches too dense.

Haven’t been posting much about cosplay, but I’ve been working on stuff so expect some photos over the next few days.



Tonight’s lesson: sometimes you have to try something, and fail… and try something else, and fail… and then keep trying to get it right. Four iterations of rosettes later, I’m finally happy.

I graduated! Yaaaaaay! Now I have to find a job! TERRIFYING.

Going to try and get some DW coding done in the next few days after months of inactivity - I got my Hack all updated yesterday and then got distracted.

web hosting recs?

acI’m on the hunt for a new hosting provider - the friend who was hosting my sites previously is unfortunately not able to continue doing so. Which means - moving time! And it’s been ages since I shopped around, so I’d love some recs. I don’t need a ton of bandwidth/server stuff, but I do need to be able to install Perl/PHP  modules, stuff like that.

(step 2: actually sit down and write my own application for my cosplay site, because I wasn’t really satisfied with the available CMS solutions already)

Progress work on my jacket for Jade! I drafted the pattern Saturday afternoon, spent Saturday night and most of Sunday dyeing white twill the appropriate shade of dark teal, and then started assembling it yesterday. The front closure on this design is so weird….

Very proud of the dye - it took three rounds and four different colors to finally hit what I wanted, so I think I’m justified in that :T Next up: a million yards of twill bias tape.

Someone should have told me the Vorkosigan novels were actually reasonable lengths - I had been putting them off because I didn’t want to get sucked into more Jacqueline Carey 800-page doorstop monstrositities. But I finished Shards of Honour in like five or six hours on Wednesday, and Barrayar yesterday afternoon.

Unsurprisingly I’m enjoying them immensely *g*

Cellphone photos but I was too frazzled to get any others at AB, so these will have to do for now.
