Note: It's hard to paint your own face without your bifocals on. (Just sayin'.)
|Outside. And no, even though it's Halloween, those are NOT those stupid "orbs" |
everyone's always talking about. I really need to clean my lens.

the design much more clearly.
And yes, my camera really likes to focus. On itself.
Other things happening on the home front:
I got to work on at least one Halloween costume this year. A friend of mine wanted to be a Smurfette, but wanted to be comfortable while working the typical 9 to 5 in a cubicle. So we dyed a white shirt and some leggings that pretty aqua Smurf blue color, only the leggings were too high in synthetic content and wouldn't take the dye as well as the cotton shirt did. So Phase Two included running out to the local fabric store, buying some inexpensive flat-fold jersey (that neither of us could help "petting" repeatedly - it was that soft) and a pattern for leggings. The leggings made up in about an hour, start to finish. I may just have to go buy that pattern for myself. (Wonder how long leggings will stay in style this time around?) Anyway, my friend now has an awesome custom dyed t-shirt, some really comfy leggings, and a Halloween costume that she can use again.
And I think she makes a really cute Smurfette, don't you?
