What’s Up?

I spent a great deal of time working on a WordPress theme last weekend, which is a creative activity. The stopping point can currently be seen in my words blog, where i’m trying to collect my poetry from over the years.

I’ve kept at a little crochet, mainly the blanket ground (CR2006.05) and the scarf (CR2006.02). I’ve scanned in some fun mail-art received, but have not got it up anywhere. Indeed. The home server where i had been collecting my images, is having a fan or drive problem that sounds too much like my pager for me to sleep through. It was off all last night and we’ll try vacuuming it out as first repair. (A couple of weeks ago the weekend was spent backing up the data.)

Shoes and sandal ideas: http://www.hollowtop.com/sandals.htm — describes using a tire for a sole. I’ve fantasized about crocheting shoes, and essentially imagined making the sole as the hollowtop author described — painting something waterproof on the bottom. (My solution would have not been as sustainable, admittedly.) But tire treads! My sister pointed out one could recover blown out tires for the purpose. It appears it would be possible to buy something suitable, too.
