but it will be for february 15th. which is a better day anyway because every store has chocolate for 1/2 off
please ignore the awful photo setup
i really like it so far. i changed the chart a bit from the first toronto hat– i did my research and added in a few buildings that are under construction (cityplace mostly). i have tomorrow off (ok i have the next week off but i have a lot to catch up on) and hopefully it’ll be done before noon. i’m also typing up a pattern for this one (cityscape optional for non-torontonians) and i think it might be my first for-sale pattern, since it’s a lot more complicated and formally written than the ones i’ve released for free before.
i may have been late with my valentines non-present (we weren’t doing ‘gifts’ this year 🙂 ) but the DH sure wasn’t. he made me a set of loldogs which are some of the cutest things i’ve ever seen. click for enlargements, although most are inside jokes– but still cute photos of puppies! how sweet is this?!
and for my own organizational nutsiness, here is what needs to get done in the next ten days (during my one week of glorious classlessness)
-and the pattern
-min cardi (yeah right)
-stage design model and drawings for drawing class
-melt things for experimental production class (see below) and eventually actually make something other than a blob.
-sew a set of feety pajamas for experimental production class (as if my felt gargoyle didn’t already make my classmates confused enough)
-visit the textile museum
-put together our new endtable
-CLEAN and do laundry!!
-cook a bunch of meals for the freezer for those lazy nights to come in the 2nd half of the semester
-go drop off keys to our old apartment uptown and pick up the toaster oven i scoped out on craigslist (in order to aid in my melting of things– out on the balcony)
meh. so much for free time. and in case you wanted to know what objects in the dollarama melt best, here are my experiments from today:
squishy frogs. not so good, unless you’re trying to make a polychromic squishy puddle. this happened in about 3 minutes at 350 degrees. it kind of looks like a fish. which is cool. but not what i’m going for:
