life is still manic but may be opening up a bit so i can talk about it this weekend...we'll see! in the meantime i've not been doing much crafting but i did find this lovely interesting link for all you crafty geeks out there! its a geeky hacked sewing machine...
and last night i was summoned to coco de mer in covent garden to see/listen/catch up with the amazingly sex positive feminist susie bright - who is also a keen dressmaker! she was wearing a really lovely dress that she made herself that had ruching up the front - i want one. maybe if i ever do make it to see her when i'm visiting back home i'll get her to help me whip one up *wink*
so tonight i'm looking forward to a quiet night in. i've got susie's new dark erotic anthology 'bitten' to read, and i am still creating crocheted tassels for my freeform project (which has got superbly de-railed now) and also belly dancing costumes!
oh! and i've had some mega belly dancing/training epiphanies this last week - don't understand why it took me over 20 yrs to get it. my body has always been really lopsided, okay not bad like my dear friend roz kaveney's (i am sooo angry at the NHS!) that i saw last night, but my hourglass is more curvy on one side then the other...so while struggling to do the bellydancing move 'the ami' on my left side, it finally fucking hit me.
my god damn double uterus heart shaped box carrying my pregnancy on the left side of my body only and having c-section probably has impacted on the ability to do a belly roll from my right side (fine side) under and to my left oblique. duh!!!!! so now i'm working extra hard and re-engaging those muscles - so am practising my undulations as i crochet.
how's that for multi-tasking til the shit really hits the fan this weekend?
