Bowling on my mind

patchwork02

A week back when I was photographing people, Neferia came to the shoot wearing this pretty patchwork dress. I put it on today and decided to wear it with a wash of neutral colors. I like how comfortable my avatar looks! IRL, I'd put it on and head straight for a fire with some marshmallows for roasting and hot cocoa.

In SL I think I'm going to put up Christmas decorations today! Not only has Schadenfreude gone nuts with a tree farm in Horst, but /artilleri/ has too, with a Christmas Workshop where the bowling alley used to be. IRL, I might just put up my tiny Christmas tree ... it's small and plastic until my toddler has the self-restraint to not climb the tree, but we make homemade ornaments every year.

Speaking of making stuff, this morning my daughter and I collaborated on our first personalizable figurine! She did the hard part, like the hair and the clothing, and I did the face. I think we'll do one together every year, and see how her artwork changes over time...

You have a kid climbing the tree...I have cats. Who like to chew pine needles and barf all over the place afterwards...

D: aww, alyx! pine barf sounds so xmassy!

Esme -- hellifiknow, sadly, Nef handed me the frock when I said I liked it. But hey, excuse to shop more at Ivalde!

I try to find you via the SL search, but it says you don't exist - everything ok?

Achariya Rezak said...

I sure do exist! Dunno why SL was saying I don't!

Peter Stindberg said...

"Achariya Rezak" is the SL name? I just tried it again and SL says "Not found".
