I love making dresses and I blog about fabrics, patterns, inspiration and projects. I'll write about what I'm planning to do as well, and occasionally some shopping finds and alterations that I've had to do to make clothes fit or work properly. Pet peeve: synthetic linings. Favourite thing: pockets!

2 hours of commuting a day lots of reading time, perhaps you would like to sponsor my reading addiction? Thank you!!

My sewing blog being dedicated to dressmaking, I also keep an online journal on the LiveJournal network. It has been live since 2003 (which isn't very long compared to my overall online presence) and is mostly friends-only due to frequent personal content. Amusing, general interest and other posts do make it on the blog though, as do some more whimsical written musings that I sometimes cannot resist writing.
Living so close to London, I tend to go out fairly often and then write reviews about the places I've visited. Restaurants, bars, cinemas, coffee places... I've been to many and have written about them all. Find my reviews under my usual alias eurydice13.
I finally did it!! I managed to write 50'000 words in 30 days!! FINALLY!!! Took me several years to manage this. And no, there is no novel... I wrote short stories, episodes, rants. This was a first step towards producing a large amount of words in a short amount of time. And I proved (to myself) that I could do it. For me, that's all that matters for now. Ah, and the winners ribbon is cute.
I don't draw or paint as often as I would like, but I do enjoy it a lot when I have the time. It is almost like meditation for me, and I could do it all the time. Unfortunately I am hard put to find people willing to sit (still) for me, and rarely get the joy of drawing from life.
If fine arts minors were given to computer engineering students, then I would have one. While at McGill, I took all the classes I could find on the topic (and then some) and excelled in them. Drawing, 3 levels of painting, sculpture... Everything I could find in applied fine arts. I think that my crossing over to the "dark side" that is Human-Computer Interaction was only a matter of time. I remember putting in interfaces into command-prompt -based computer science homework assignments back in the early nineties... I didn't add speed, I added user control. And then went home and drew something. No wonder I work as a UXA now!
