back from the long hiatus... and an art sale.

So Sorry I haven't been around for ages. I've been sick and in and out of hospital. but things are on the mend. I can be better reached at mad_persephone which is more fan related but still with art. Basically like this, but I needed a change. And I am in desperate financial straits thanks to centrelink, so my australian friends, I invite you to my facebook event where I am heavily discountng existing stock, I can't afford to ship overseas yet. If you use facebook, feel free to add me, just drop a note saying you are from LJ.


please come and have a look, and tell your friends.

thanks guys,
Erin x

(oh and I have missed you heaps rinkle!!!

well, today I have gone 14 days without the codiene.
I can't quite beleieve that I am still coping.
it's hard, but I'm doing it.
I'm going to ring uni and find out who I need to put in my intermission form.
I'm also putting in for special consideration because I basically missed the whole semester, been off since the week before easter.
and then it's going into scumlink and hopefully getting a disability support pension.
found a couple of really nice patterns that I'm making up into jackets, even though technically they are costumes.
and my knitting is now over a metre long. its a large basket weave. I was doing this one for B, but my best mate put in an order for the same kind, and he is in tassie, so its actually coming up to winter there and here now rather than summer in the states.
B has been very busy. Gah I miss him so much.
its been kind of hard doing this without him.
though I did sneak a call on my mobile to him on his birthday when I was in the hospital.
such a rebel. thank goodness for private bathrooms on the ward.
i need to buy myself a notebook. I keep forgetting things.

note to self,

stop angsting and thinking and pining about the man who probably hasn't had a passing thought of you in the last 5 days, and get on with your work like the academic you are supposed to be,

no love,

the one tiny part of your brain backed into a corner that has any sense of logic left.

So to counteract some of the side effects of the cortisol, I've been put back on zoloft.

Not sure how I feel about that.

sewing madness

So after my dramatic meltdown things are coming together ok.

After staring at the fabric for an indeterminate amount of time waiting for it to get up and tell me the answer, I solved my corded front seam dilemma.

now just to sew the eyelet tape in and the corset is sewn up and ready for boning channels, and then it is on to the peplums, and bias binding for the rest of my life.

Having a treatment for the migraines/headaches/back pain today. Cold laser accupuncture. I'm going to feel like I've been hit by a bus for the next few days. And they have started really small because of the length of time I've been in chronic pain.

I'm not ready to say it is working yet, but I have noticed a longer period of time between taking the forte strength pain meds. I've gone from every 4 hours to up to 9 hours after the meds have worn off. But this time around, being sick as well I haven't had as good results. I just have to keep telling myself that it is not a failure on my part if I don't get the breaks. But I am confident enough to keep trying the treatment for another 3 months. Its going to take a long time.

but the guy is honest, and he's nice. He wasn't sure it was going to work, or have any effect whatsoever but was pleasantly surprised that I had a reaction. And he told us that from the beginning.

Now I sew. And try not to pin myself to death.

I'm having a brain malfunction.

These pleated peplums are doing my head in. I need to do the bias binding on the bottom first. so I am going to have to mark.. oh. *that* is why you baste it first.

I've just answered my own dillemma.

I just wanted to do some easy handsewing that I didn't have to think too much about. I've marked out everything I can possibly think of to facilitate this. I just dont have enough concentration today. I think I should just sleep for a bit and work on it tonight. It's that on-the-verge-of-tears frustration. I do not want to have a weeping meltdown.

but the cording is done, and seemed a lot easier this time.

pretty cording...

I have fallen in love with cording.

It is so ridiculously time consuming, and OMG I HAVE BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!!! well not quite, but my fingers are damn sore from pushing the cord through channells 4mm wide.

but it feels so pretty. I want to do everything in cording now.

I would cord the walls at this stage. Unfortunately most of my stash is patterned fabric, and it will make it too busy if I do designs with it. But I can still cord vertically. Muwahahhaha.

I haven't slept for a while. I think I may be going a little bit crazy.
