Falling Apart

Air America's radio hostess/Goddess, Randi Rhodes predicted that since power corrupts, the current Redumblican administration would be doing things to piss off the majority of the world in very short order.

This special bill for Terry Schiavo seems to be the first of many idiotic attempts to build the stage for taking away women's right to choose.

It won't be long before most moderate-thinking folks will be calling our president worse names than the progressive liberals.

Fiber Workshop
I promised pictures of the fiber workshop, so finally, here they are.

First of all, the participants and the instructor.

That's me to the left, next to Charles, Kathy (the host), Bettes, Nelda and Deborah standing.

Here are a couple of action shots.

Just looking at the pictures from the workshop make me feel happier.

Old Project
I never did clsoe the loop on how I finished the Olive Zippered Cardigan.

As it turns out, I couldn't find the tailor I thought was near where I worked. I asked my sister if she'd sew in the zipper for me, and she hemmed and hawed (if you'll excuse the expression). So I finally tried setting up my own sewing machine to seaw in the zipper. I got it all set up, and then I realized I didn't really have the ability to sew a zipper into a continuous tube of fabric.

I ended up just hand-sewing the damn thing in, and it turned out practically perfect. The picture sucks, but I also added two small buttons at the top since the zipper was slightly shorter than what I needed.

Washing the finished product made the yarn bloom, just like in the swatch, and all-in-all, I'm very happy with the end product
