missmorange answered your question “So i got this generic free motion foot ya? And i followed the…”

try it with a mini sandwich, just a wedge of about 5” square and then test it. sometimes it doesn’t shift because its too thin for the foot

missmorange thank you for this advice. I…

Sometimes when you have more than one modification on a machine they cancel each other out. Especially if your running a no name part on a branded device. Try pulling the bar forward just a tiny bit and see if that stops it bouncing the band off. Or try just the bar bent without the band. I suppose I’m lucky, my mum has a brand name free motion foot on her machine so we just swap machines when I need it. Mine would in no way fit one. Its too small.
But good luck and I’m glad the sandwich worked!

Hah. Hahahah. Fuck.

just think. if the non voting population had cast a vote - the political landscape could have been completely different.if you know someone who didn’t vote yet complains about the state the country, either smack them or tell them to shut the hell up. depending on how annoying they are.without casting a vote you have not had a say in the government and thus have no right to be angry that something isn’t going the way you want.its like science. if you have no input, you can’t complain about the output.every adult who is a citizen is allowed to vote, we even had advanced voting this year where you could rock up to vote without being previously enrolled so it’s not like there was only a 2 hour window and fifteen hoops of criteria you had to jump through.

missmorange:

Our collection of crochet hooks arranged from biggest to smallest. And im sure we’re still missing a few , even excluding the one i gave aki. Crochet hooks give their size in mm, like the diameter. That is, unless you’re american because they like to be special and have their own ordering system.
11.5, 10, 10, 8, 7, 5, 4, 4, 4, 3, 2.5, 2, 1.25.
Dear god, if I ever comment about wanting to make something with the 1.25mm hook just strike me with lightning ok?

I have a 1mm and a 0.6mm somewhere! Never used them, I bought them for the novelty of tiny-ness.

I would turn one that small into a hair piece.
I’ve got past-shoulder length hair and I learnt in high school how to tie it up with a single stick. so since then people kind give me funny looks because I always have a pen, or a paintbrush, or a crochet hook in my hair.  
Crochet up a tiny charm or a star and attach it to the hook and voila, a brand new accessory!

Ah nanowrimo is only a month and a half away *runs off screaming*

I… I totally forgot that NaNo is coming up so fast. JEEZE where did 2014 go?? I need to start thinking about what I’m doing this year…. probably a bunch of pitches.

for the past month or so I’ve been reblogging things with the tag plot bunnies so can pull something together once I start planning. Most of them wouldn’t be enough for a 50K story, but they’re enough to get me to start thinking about characters and setting etc

My parents marks have matching stains across their palms, wrapping around like a perpetual handshake.  My sister has a long, oval shape along her arm from where her someone will someday jostle her. My grandma had a smudged little circle on her shin that matched the dark blue on my grandpa’s big toe.

Mine? Mine is a bullet hole.

What’s funny is that he isn’t even defending Fedora’s correctly. He’s wearing a Trillby.

You’re right, that is most definitely not a fedora. I suspect it is a Trilby, but if it is, he is wearing it backwards. The flat brim of the trilby is the front, whereas on his hat you can see the curl in the front. Either that, or he’s wearing something else entirely - which would make it even worse.

But for all his claims that he knows more… I bet I know a lot more than he does. I know the fedora first appeared in 1882 and was worn by women, and quickly adopted by the suffragette movement. The Trilby, however, came about in 1894. Both hats got their start by appearing in plays (Fedora was actually the name of the play that featured the fedora, and it’s name comes from the fact that it was worn by the title character - Princess Fedora. The fedora did not become common men’s wear until 1924.

Neither of these hats are common anymore, although the true fedora was adopted by some Haredi and Orthodox Jewish populations as part of their daily wear, and is still found commonly in those populations.

This isn’t even hard information to find. It’s on wikipedia. Google Fedora or Trilby and bam, right there for you.

I also know Mr Young-Man-Yells-At-Sky up there looks pretty goddamn ridiculous wearing a white trilby with a dark suit. Did you phone it in today? Come on, man.

This is always my first though when I see MRA’s.
Its pretty good, it means I have a smile on my face when I’m thinking about how stupid their troubles are.
