She's Crafty

These are the little things that have been keeping me busy lately:
  • a Mighty Boosh-themed embroidery. I'm somehow both super excited about this (mostly just because I love the Boosh and because of the shiny silver thread), but also not super happy with the way it turned out. It's part of a continuing theme of making tv-show related things. I used to have a portrait of the Bluth Family I painted somewhere, but I don't know what's happened to it. Pity.
  • a t-shirt with iron-on letters because what adult doesn't need a t-shirt with her name on it? It makes me feel like I'm in the Mickey Mouse Club or something.
  • the new Beatles Live at the BBC album. This just arrived yesterday and I'm totally in love with it. I was just talking with my sister about the Beatles the other day and mentioned that it doesn't even occur to me to name the Beatles when people ask what kind of music I like or what my favourite band is. Because I just assume that everyone loves them as much as I do (which I know isn't true, but it blows my mind and I prefer not to think of how anyone could not like them).

(and yeah, I know the song "She's Crafty" isn't about crafts...)


  1. WHAT A GREAT POST. That Mighty Boosh embroidery might be the cutest/greatest thing I've ever seen.

    I sort of want a t-shirt with my name on it, but I don't like strangers knowing my name, especially since I wear a freaking NAMETAG at work and anyone who tries to read it off the tag ends up failing miserably.

    I don't have that Beatles album yet because it's on my Christmas list. Fingers crossed! I feel like a lot of people pretend to like the Beatles or like them only superficially because it's part of cultural consciousness. I always mention them when people ask me about music because I like to try and weed out the fakers.

    1. oh man! thanks! :D
