kate5kiwis: floss the boss


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

floss the boss

i met floss on the internet *shock* and she turned out to be rather a kindred spirit. last summer her family didn't axe-murder us on their road trip. this summer, floss popped north again, with girlies in tow, on their way to jump off the sky tower (twice).

floss has saved my life this year, sending me all sorts of inspiration for my turning-eleven year olds' soft materials techno class. inspiration like her textile art idea: hey kids, this is a sewing machine and here's a big bunch of fabrics. let's each make a square that tells us about you and i'll sew it all up into a window frame.

this ain't looking terribly impressive here, but it's seriously cool irl. oh, i have just been informed that irl isn't used any more, you say something else like lmaotearoa.

See... aren't the kids amazing? You give them this little idea and look what explosions of amazingness they produce! Love the window frames to highlight everybody. Oh we loved being at your place, relaxing in The Bay. Nellie felt really at home too. She's home now, spread her wings and flown back to Germany. Meanwhile we continue to pack and clean and move at our leisure - thank goodness for holidays. xxx
