"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
this is the east west satchel kit mom gave me for my birthday! i've finished the strap and bottom, and today i finished the front and back! all i have left to knit are the flap and the edging... and of course, i have to put it all together, make a lining, etc. i now comes the scary part. CUTTING THE STEEK! those non patterned stripes down the middle? i'm going to CUT them. with SCISSORS. down the middle of my KNITTING. i'll reinforce them tomorrow on the bus, and then actually do the cutting at my knitting group for moral support.
