Ever since I can remember, I have felt the need for something that pushes my boundaries. Especially after abandoning my 101 goals in 1001 days, I have been lazy, listless, and under-productive. Beginning of this year, in January, a group of macrame artists on Facebook hosted a 30 day challenge. I happened to join the… Continue reading 30 Day Challenge
Where is the lifebuoy, Where is the boat, Where is the object That keeps me afloat?
“I have only one thing to do and that’s To be the wave that I am and then Sink back into the ocean…” Stealing lyrics I cannot write, Lyrics that wrote my soul, Writing words that have no value, Except filling that Postmodern hole. Wishing that I had that voice, which like the waves on… Continue reading Cheating
I am an island, A lost planet, Floating in the sea of forgotten outer space. A constellation surrounds me, Brighter and more beautiful Than I could ever hope to be.

The comfort of the dark starry sky echoes the hugging comfort of the soil Both places are untamed expanses Where Desire roams free embedded. As Desire turns to lust, the worms begin… Continue reading The worms come out tonight

These things – more likely to be tissues – would have an advertisement in them promoting something or the other -a new restaurant or an offer for discounted contact lenses. If you are lucky, you might even… Continue reading Galaxy Themed Japanese Fan
I made these two tote bags from old jeans, and an old belt. The first was a basic one, the second a more complicated design. I added a lining and a zip to the second one, but not to the first. So proud of the second one! *grins*

I had to make changes in the design along the way… Continue reading 28. Design and stitch a handbag.
