I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

If I may summarize the past few evenings: My window is 4 metres wide and 3 metres tall and I’ve been sewing 4 lots of curtains out of fabric, hours on end. My sewing machine is 15 years old and angsty, I am a no0b sewing machine parent. I have very very little patience. Conclusion: There will be neither curtains nor sewing machine at the end of this.

Oh. I also do not own a ladder, so I am relying on my bicycle, tripod and sofa. In whatever order, really.

  1. I love your pant and your necklace

  2. Interesting combination as always! I’m not quite sure I would have understood the appeal of a body rope in print without seeing it on you and looking fab!

  3. gooorgous.
    and your windows are how big? you must live somewhere architecturally unusual/ beautiful with those kind of proportions. would love to see pictures of said window/ flat if you don’t feel that totally invades your privacy. sorry i get a bit over excited about architecture…
    good luck on the curtains.

  4. i will definitely look into some local college classes. in the meantime, i’ll do some good ‘ole self-teaching…we’ll see where that leads to.

    you look wonderful shini! you remind me a few years ago when i ended up making curtains for my bf and his friend’s apartment. to make things easier, of course they bought the thickest and most unmanageable fabric: thick velvet. they went out for lunch and errands; i ended up making the curtains. good for them.

    and fyi, some inspiration for your bike, tripod and sofa: http://static.onemansblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/Ladder_on_Ladder.jpg

  5. @sophia,

    Oh man, that’s dangerous/awesome on so many different levels…..er rungs…..

  6. omg safety fail.

    men and their velvet, I don’t know what attracts the two…

  7. Hi Sini! Could you tell me what type of camera you use? As always, your pictures are stunning!

  8. I use a Canon EOS 550D! Thank you!

  9. You should definitely go in this order: Bike propped on it’s side, tripod balancing on the pedals, sofa balanced on top of tripod. It’d make for a great illustration. Perhaps the opening illustration for a book entitled, “Curtain making for, not dummies, but ambitious and diy type of girls who are resourceful and slightly misguided.” NYT Bestseller? I think so.

  10. Buueheh you wanna write the book for me and I can sort of pose for the illustration?

  11. And also, I am remiss to the fact that I went 21 years in my life before ever seeing a body rope.
