Bits and Pieces

By tomorrow, I should have more to say. Or at least pictures of interesting projects. Or less than interesting projects. For now, though, a couple of pictures and a story (very short, I promise).

Baby Sweater In Situ

Baby sweater and pants, in situ. Isn't she adorable? I'm verklempht.

Pinned Pattern

This project is finished and I don't hate it. Until I have pictures, I'll leave it a mystery.

And a story. As I've said before, I love the Oscars. The ceremony was pretty boring this year, unfortunately Jon Stewart didn't manage to offend anyone (he ticked off both Steven Spielberg and George Clooney last time he hosted, which I found pretty funny. But I'm kind of mean that way). The only really good story of the night involved the winners of best song, "Falling Slowly" by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irlova from the movie Once. Their win was a bit of a surprise, since they were up against a bunch of Di5ney songs (and they almost always win). They bounded up to the stage and Hansard used up all the mike time with his speech. Stewart thought Irlova deserved better and brought her back out so she could make her speech. It was a very sweet, genuine moment.

Ian and I watched "Once" about a month ago and one morning days later I woke up with "Falling Slowly" playing in my head and it wouldn't stop. Finally I broke down and bought the soundtrack on iTunes. Just today I listened to it again in the car. I don't know why it's so captivating, but it is. It's wonderful to see individual art trump big studio talent.
