Don't Blink Poncho #2 from Becca's Crazy Projects

I recently shared my first Don't Blink Poncho. After looking at it for a week, I decided I needed to make another so at least some of the wording would be right-side up.

While the fabric has that tossed/scrambled look, I think it looks better on this one than the last.

Here they are side-by-side. The left is the first one I made (I think the words look upside down). The right is the second one (I think the words look right-side up). Now I have to figure out what to do with one of them. I certainly ...

Quest for Pockets from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been known to say "what people really want is pocket equality." What is pocket equality? There are more than a few articles written about pocket inequality. Here is one that shows sizes and compares the pockets in women's and men's pants. It is interesting, and somewhat baffling, why there is so much disparity. What I do about it is carry a purse that fits all the things I want/need to carry. Most of the time it is way more stuff than I really want to carry, but I don't carry a handbag every day ...
