college is a truly amazing place


college is a truly amazing place


Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live. 


if you don’t respect the anger of oppressed people, you’re probably why they’re angry.


My 1840’s Bonnet Hack

I started off with a $5, 18” straw craft hat and scraps of related trim and fabric from my stash.  I purchased straw trim (which will be returned), a few flowers and ribbon.

18” was too large so I seam ripped and unwound the straw band until it was more manageable.  Folding the hat into a bonnet shape gave me a cutting line, which was covered with the removed row of straw.  I only stitched the straw band to the exterior, the interior was finished after the lining was done.

The flat hat was dipped into a pot of just boiled water, making it pliable.  I could stretch, fold, and adjust the shape as needed knowing the shape would hold once dry.  NOTE:  The fumes given off from the treated straw aren’t healthy, so do this in a well ventilated area.

Scrap strips of silk were ruched, pleated, and stitched into placed by machine for the interior lining.  

The exterior trim is about 5 yards of ribbon with a couple flowers.  The back ruffle is made by stitching pieces of the ribbon together (I looked at a lot of extant bonnet photos).

A Midsummer Night’s Dream [x]

What with the Mercutio/Romeo kiss from the other day I feel like I should have a tag specifically for “men kissing in Shakespeare plays even though it’s not in the text, but after 400 years of unresolved sexual tension it’s time.”
