Firefly - still flying

Simon and Mal in the first episode of Firefly:
- Are you always this sentimental?
- I had a good day.
-You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages... Half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you're harboring known fugitives.
-Well, we're still flying.
-That's not much.
-It's enough.

This hoop is destined for someone going through a really hard time right now. I just wanted to remind him that some days you get to take down the alliance and play with kickass swords. And some days are not that good, but you are still flying, and - on those days - perhaps that is enough.

Wonder Woman handbag

When I was unpacking I discovered this hideous pink bag with ruffles and diamantes on (I took pictures to show you but my phone seems to have gobbled them up). I have no idea why I had it and was going to throw it straight in the bin. But then curiosity as to how bags are made got the better of me and I ripped all the hideous pink material off.

This is the bag now!

Ooo check me out with my little handbag!

Breaking Bad embroidery

I've graduated to using picture frames for my embroidery!

This is part of my bitch embroidery range, along with the OITNB one (okay, not really. Although if I were to do that, I could totally do a Breaking Bad "roll me further bitch" wheelchair for this scene.)

Manic Miner 'curtain'

In my (now) otherwise quite lovely lounge there is a box full of electrical things. Except this box doesn't have a cover on the front but attempts to tastefully hide itself away with a net curtain. Let me show you.

Classy, no?

Even when I was looking around the place before I had decided to take it I looked at that net curtain and thought well, that's got to go.
Apparently the number of people I know who are both old and cool enough to actually recognise Manic Miner can be counted on one hand. I don't care - I love it!

Making the little cuts in the flooring took quite a long time - at least three Buffy's worth. And in fact fans of the game will notice that this is a rather simplified version of the Central Cavern and that he has already collected all the keys. Meh.

Here it is laid out
