“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
the pun on all words *kate* is nothing new here, but it's new at skool. 'twouldn't be a real skool hols without a wee sewing project and i'm ecstatic to say that the Recycled Eco Bag tute is half-done: well, the sewing part's complete, i just needa do ze write-up and convert it to pdf and upload it to moodle and then teach the kiddos how to access it. the bag is actually 'square' like those reusable ones ya get at the supemarket, 'cept ours is better cos it's recycling throw-out stuffs (yep, this sucker is made from an old towel, sheet, and tshirt).
it took twice as long to design and sew the logo as it did to sew the bag, which is ohk really, cos the logo is the fun part. the kids at skool have dreamed up all sorts of puns on the reduce/reuse/recycle theme, and we're all very exciiiited about saving a few more dolphins.
there's nothing like night-time photos to make something look eerie. it's pretty sunshiney and texturey when you're up close to it. i'm hoping the exemplar and tute will help the visual/kinaesthetic/unlinear souls amongst us. yeah, i'm feeling rather swirling thoughtsy.
