Pinned toot

Doing another to pin as some things have changed.

I'm Taryn, I live in Adelaide, and I'm a stay-at-home mum with a toddler. I'm very tired.

When I get time, I like to draw cartoonish pictures with semi-realistic features. I also like to make things. Sometimes I like to play games.

I'm cis, probably ace, and recently diagnosed with ADHD and autism. She/her, I guess.

I hate trying to do toilet training

The boy's wearable blanket is pretty much finished. I have a little bit of ladder stitch to do.

Food (breadposting, Pain au Lard) 

Mr Nearly-3 highly recommends it with peanut paste, and I gotta say, he makes good choices.

I'm just gonna… put this… here…

Practice shirt too big. Tummy and hips not as big as the measurements suggest. Need to measure again.

Nearly finished my practice shirt that I'm making for me. Mistakes have been made. So many mistakes. But I've learned, and the shirt is still wearable.

OK some of it is that I have also fucked up. But that measurement around my tummy is still super iffy.

I think my practice shirt is too big and I am questioning my husband's attempts at measurements…

Seem to be sewing myself a "practice shirt". All in the name of learning. Mostly I just want a long sleeved shirt. Stupid cold weather.

Also pretty sure the correct translation is "Pain au Lard" but I guess what Mr Forkish wrote helps all the people who aren't dabbling with French in Duolingo (or, like, who actually properly speak the language).

The Pain au Bacon has been mixed. The smell of bacon grease combining with dough was amazing. I am excited. I feel like this will turn out nicely even if I mess it up.

Really fighting the urge to go to Spotlight and spend money I don't have on polar fleece so I can make the whole family a wearable blanket each.

I'm going to try Ken Forkish's "Pain au Bacon". I fed the sourdough yesterday and I've fed it again this morning. Used the discarded sourdough to make crumpets.

Oh yeah and I guess I've started the sourdough experiments. Someone else had to give me a starter though.

And I made the bee boy a bee shirt. I don't think the fabric has quite enough stretch in it, but he will not mind. It's got bees on it. He'll love it.

I've put it on the coffee table for him to discover in the morning.

Next mission is definitely PJ pants.

I tried to make a clothes today. All I did was a practice one in grey. I wanted to practice before I messed up the cute bee fabric.

And finished this to turn daddy into a chickenrat.
