*I wrote this while still on the farm in late August just before MoFo started. I was in the cabin -Twin Peaks- at twilight. The photos are rough but I can’t be bothered taking new ones.*
All, but the Country Grind patch, came from Portland illustrator/author Matt Gauck. I have a few more of his; another wolf, a shotgun armed grizzly bear, owls and a Laura Palmer –we miss you patch to sew on other clothes.
Alex came in to strike costumes on Tuesday. I asked if she could set me up on a sewing machine. I tried figuring one out myself but kept fucking up and lost hope. She was encouraging, showed me some tricks and fixed what I’d messed up. You’re the best Alex!
I ran down to the yard where Kate and Jeff were sitting at the picnic tables, to regale my awesome new talent. They laughed at how crap my sewing job was. I don’t care. I now -sort of- know how to use a sewing machine! Alex kept saying to me “Relax. You know how to use power tools, you can figure out how to do this.” I don’t know why I was so stressed out about it, something buried deep from grade 8 Home Ec.
