We began the night at Heidi's house. On the way over I saw a disadvantage of our precious American capitalism. A homeless man "feasting" on fried chicken and mouthwash (a more efficient, less costly, and extremely unhealthy way to get plastered), while filling out his lottery cards. I almost cried. The fact that he was drinking mouthwash really hit me. At the same time, he was full of hope: he was playing the lottery. My mom sees it as "for people who are bad at math". I see it as a tax on poor people. Either way... I felt like calling this former classmate of mine, who during introductions in our first class, stated that he wants to end homelessness. At the time I saw it as idealistic, but after experiencing his intelligence and passion, I now see his dream as optimistic. Anyway, back to craftnite....
Vara came over to see Heidi's apartment and discuss the possibility of getting a 3 bedroom. Being in apartment-hunting-mode I noticed this sign:Only 1 bedroom? No bathroom? Kitchen? weird...
I brought over this Heidi-inspired refashioned tee to finish on her (awesome) sewing machine and get some tips from her.We had a new face at Amy's: Lorraine. We just decided to knit/crochet, rather than do a project.
Oh, and drink some tea too.
This is Lorraine's blanket. She crochets super fast. Like a machine, that one. She started this blanket that night!
I was working on this contract crochet vest that Amy designed. It's gonna look great.
Heidi finished her Anthropologie-inspired caplet-turned-t-shirt.
I entitle this picture, "oooooo, how I love it so."
I love it so too--I started my own.
Heidi's second inspiration for me for the day. More to come, I'm sure.
