Ornigami Christmas

Last week we had a very special origami night to make decorations for Heather's Christmas tree. Some of them were origami ornaments and some were other crafty ornaments. Other artsy endeavors were explored at the party as well. It was great having a nice warm creative party to break up the cold solitary Winter times. My contributions to the tree were a silver origami fish and a stuffed animal head.

Last Tuesday

When Heather and I were in London in September we attended a fabulous Autumn dance that was put on by the Last Tuesday Society. It was full of really splendidly dressed people dancing to classy music and there was a giant chocolate fountain that you could dip fresh fruit on a stick into. There was a photographer named Duilio Marconi there who took some pictures of us on the stairs. We just got them back from him, so I thought I'd share here.

It was a really great night. I highly recommend the Last Tuesday Society events to anyone in London. They will be having New Year's Eve events. Go.

Heather's Coat

I've been working on a coat for Heather recently. I finished sewing it last night!

Here's a picture of it before the buttonholes

These pictures were taken after all the sewing was complete.

These buttons are temporary. We are planning on casting metal buttons to match the belt.

The shell of the coat is hemp silk satin. The lining is microfiber fleece. It is insulated with PrimaLoft insulation. It is very warm!

I'll put up better pictures when we get the real buttons on it.
