lololololol

San Francisco hackerspace Noisebridge has launched an Indiegogo campaign to finance much needed repairs and upgrades to its Mission district facility. The campaign, entitled Noisebridge Reboot 2014, will pay for electrical and structural repairs for the facility, as well as repairs and replacements of some of Noisebridge’s tools and equipment.

Our philosophy is simple: Be Excellent to each other.

Noisebridge lives up to this credo by providing the workspace, access to tools, mentoring, and education that can change peoples lives. 3D printing, coding, science, art, music, robotics, neurohacking, biohacking, and much much more.

Peleg Design Makes Eggs Fun with the YolkPig Egg Separator and the Arthur Egg Cup

by Lori Dorn

Tel Aviv-based Peleg Design has created the YolkPig, the porcine cousin of their previous product the YolkFish. And like its cousin, the YolkPig separates eggs with a just a little kiss.

This little piggy is one gifted pig. While all the other pigs play in the mud, he prefers to stay in the kitchen, sticking his nose in a bowl of eggs, sucking up the yolks and separating them from the whites! Oink!

YolkPig

YolkPigs

Because Peleg isn’t only about the raw egg, they’ve designed amusing hard-boiled egg cups, none more chivalrous than the noble Arthur.

Behold the knights of the round egg! Bound to his chivalry code, Arthur will come to your service each morning as your egg in shining armor.

Arthurs

Arthur's Court

While the products are not yet available in U.S. retail stores, these and other Peleg Designs can be ordered through 1 Design Per Day.

A Field Guide To Unusual (And Hilarious) Harry Potter Patronuses

Not everyone can have a Patronus that's steeped in romance or a longing for the father they never knew. Some wizards have Patronuses that are steeped in pop culture, awesomely frightening, or just plain silly.

Remake: Mauve Polyester Dress

by admin
Rosalind

really well done

You saw the teaser of this piece yesterday…

New Dress A Day - vintage dress

Mauve dream!

…and gave me plenty of ideas of what you thought I might turn it into!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Should I make a pillow with this?

There’s absolutely no way of flashing anyone wearing this!!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

So much fabric!

The key factor to this dress was the layered top!

 

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Lean back!

I had an idea of what I wanted to create…

 

 

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Vintage layers!

…but loved hearing what you had to say!  From cap sleeves and dye to strapless and shortened, you had some fabulous ideas. Want to see what it looks like now??

I started by removing the shirt portion of the dress. It was a whole other layer on top of the dress that I cut off!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

TRIM!

That shirt portion will be used again very soon, but today I was focusing on the bottom layer. I played around with the top of the new dress a bit and created a triangular shape with it, pinning under the raw edging.

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Pointy edge

I stitched this shape in place…

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Stitch in place.

…and then moved on to adding some trim to the edge. I used this gorg May Arts velvet ribbon as my trim and pinned it on top of the new seam that I just created at the top of the dress.

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Trim!

I stitched my trim in place…

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

More stitchin’

…and then moved onto the straps! Using a long piece of elastic, I folded it in half and pinned this portion to the point created at the top of the dress.

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Elastic straps.

Next, I pinned each individual piece of elastic to the back of the dress after measuring the exact amount to fit me.

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Pin in place

After measuring, I hand stitched all the elastic in place to secure.

From vintage “mother of the groom” dress that Lauren called out yesterday in the comments, to a new and summery look incorporating more colors into the mix!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

AFTER

It really is so comfortable for being 100% polyester!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Straps!

I just love the top of the dress now – this new shape gives it a whole new look!

 

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Looks a bit different now, right?

To tie in more of the green color, I belted another piece of the ribbon at my waist.

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Mauve & green!

I sunscreened up and had my dress to kick off the week!

New Dress A Day - Mauve Polyester Dress

Beauty beneath lots of fabric!

I loved hearing all the comments of what you think would work best!! I’ll have to keep that up and check in with you guys before I post.

So fun to hear your creative ideas!

Rosalind

tw: death



"My brother was killed when I was 13. There had been a fight at a nightclub, and my brother was not involved, but he was shot in the head as he tried to run away. He was very popular in my town, so there were many reporters and friends outside the hospital when I got there. When I walked in my mother was sitting in a chair, crying. She wouldn’t even look at me. She wouldn’t speak to me. Not only did I lose my brother that day, but I lost my mother too. Life from then on was about her suffering. She stayed home all day, she cried, she didn’t pay much attention to us. Nothing was allowed to be more important than her suffering. Nobody else was allowed to have important problems. Her pain had to be worse than everyone else’s. She preferred it that way."

Rosalind

tw: alcoholism



"She was filled with regret before she died. She felt like she’d failed us as a mother tremendously."
"Did she say something to you about it?"
"She never said anything, so I don’t have any tangible proof that she had regrets. But she had a very bad substance abuse problem. And I know she always wanted to be a good mother. So I separate my mom from her disease. I always imagine that my mom and an alcoholic were living in the same body. And I know that my mom loved us. And that she hated the alcoholic."

"Are you lonely?""It’s been a lifetime of loneliness. I...



"Are you lonely?"
"It’s been a lifetime of loneliness. I decided early on that I better get used to it. I go to movies by myself. If the movie theater is completely empty, I’m even happier. I learned early on that if I wanted to go to restaurants, I better learn to go by myself. One benefit to being big is that people don’t bother you. I’m shocked that you came up to me. Nobody’s ever done that. When I started to go to therapy, it took me several sessions before I even spoke a word. I’d just sit there and cry. And honestly, you caught me on a tough day. I was sitting here feeling really bad about myself. Because I went to the doctor today, and I was sure that I’d lost weight. But I’d gained some."
