New 90’s movie playlist

  I made you a mixtape.  Now I know the 90’s is a trendy thing now, but the music/ movies/ tv/ pop culture were my everything back in *cough* high school. For reference, see my seventh grade Twin Peaks cherry pie hack here.  Singles, Clueless, Reality Bites, Romy & Michelle, Romeo & Juliet, all the good stuff.  Grab a damn…

You can still stream My So Called Life for free…

  We were watching Homeland the other night when suddenly for some reason, I didn’t want to see Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison, grown up CIA agent. I wanted to see her as Angela Chase again, the angsty teen who was my age when the show ran for just one short glorious season. You can still find it on Amazon…

The 14 day edit: TV shows to binge watch while knitting

I’ll admit it- I LOVE tv. Before streaming services were the big thing, we did not add HBO or Showtime to our cable package because OMG so expensive! So we’d binge on shows like The Sopranos when we’d visit our parents for the weekend after everyone else had gone to bed, staying up till all hours fitting in as many…

Twin Peaks inspired knitting patterns & every sweater from the show ranked!

When I was in middle school, my friends and I were obsessed with Twin Peaks.  We’d get together to watch the show and make little cherry pies using those little sponge cake cups you find at the grocery store and pie filling (they weren’t very good), buy any merch that came out (the Cooper tapes, Laura Palmer’s diary), and I’m…

Getting back on track

The last time I posted, two and a half months ago, I was excitedly working on the Buttony sweater and was about to finish up the bottom half.  Even though the pattern didn’t call for any shaping, I decided to add some anyway.  I continually tried the sweater on as I knitted (you can see where this is going, right?)…

DIY: 90’s inspired choker with fabric charms

  I found these two fabrics at JoAnn’s and just needed to find a way to use them STAT. That yellow plaid reminded me of Cher’s outfit in Clueless: and the brown floral made me think of a cute little sundress Winona would wear: So I decided to combine them with one of my other favorite trends from the 90’s – chokers. …

The dream of the 90’s is alive in embroidery

I haven’t really blogged in a while because I’ve been working on a few projects all at once, and while everything is moving along, it’s going slowly.  Too slowly to really have any interesting progress shots, until today- finally! I’m working on a series of 90’s inspired embroidery art pieces, and I’m just about finished with the first piece, which…
