So, the idea is to recycle five pairs of GAP cargo pants and some swatches of sequins to compose a military-style jacket. (Other ingredients include lots of coffee, cookies and cake.)
It is commissioned by the same fabulous lady who got the chain-scarf previously. This is the second project for her, hopefully it would be an on-going relationship.

Just started reading Edmund White's The Farewell Symphony, and moving along rather quickly. And here is a brilliant line that I just had to jut down on a napkin during lunch.
This perfectly captures youth and coming-of-age. I think, anyway...

Finally signed and packed up the tax return forms for 2009. Woo-hoo!
I have recently started subscription to the New Yorker magazine, which is quite wonderful. Lots of interesting articles and great cartoons! Just today, there is a cute one on tax returns, as shown here.
Then I felt like being silly and did some Photoshop-ing. (Well, actually, the bottom part is in fact my lucky case with tax returns.) Instead of paying even more tax, I will be getting a big FAT refund check from the IRS!! I will be walking away with a wad of cash!
To where? I don't know yet.
Also have been working on lots of projects simultaneously (when it rains, it pours), including samples for a men's collection with the initials "H" & "L", and a women's knitwear line with the initial of "L" & "P", and a couple of custom-made garments for a very fabulous lady C.A.G. So have been neglecting this blog recently. Once all these projects are done, I will have more exciting pictures. Keep your eyes peeled sharp!! (whoever is reading this blog)
