Operation date: 20th. It's confirmed. I'll be going in on the evening of the 19th, so basically once I'm done at BLYG I'm not even going home, we're just making sure we have all my hospital things with us that day and taking a cab there or something. It's good to have something to do through the day; hopefully it'll give me something to focus on other than being freaked out (seriously, hospital stays manage to combine a shocking number of my phobias and neuroses into one package of joy). Whether I come out on the evening of the 20th or on the 21st depends on how they think I'm doing.

ANYWAY. I have a plan for this summer, which is basically: do craft stuff! Make things! Especially make clothes, since we have no money to buy good things but can probably modify a lot of the boring stuff we have!

I've already posted the results of my jeans-patching experiment, but I've also been up to some other stuff.

1. Shoes for [personal profile] valborg. Well, decorating them. We found a pair of very plain white canvas shoes in a box somewhere (or something), which fit Valborg fine but were incredibly boring. Also, I raided the Red Cross's shop for huge numbers of buttons a few weeks ago without any particular plan as to what I was going to use them for.

2. A t-shirt for Valborg. It was actually going to be a birthday present, but there's been a lot of terrible going on lately and there was this week when she seemed like she really needed cheering up, so she has it already.

It's a pride t-shirt!

So that's what I've been up to lately. :) I've been having fun, anyway!

The button shoes are such a brilliant idea!

Those are some excellent shoes! Great idea!

And I'm glad you finally have your surgery date.

The shoes and the shirt look spiffy! I especially like the text, very cute and nice!

And this:
Operation date: 20th. It's confirmed.
made me do a real-life holler of joy =D I so look forward to meeting you at BLYG, I hope we have time to talk as well tho there is a risk I'll run around like a headless chicken a great deal of the time...

If you're coming/leaving by car, it might be good to know that the con venue is "Östra Gymnasiet" in Skogås, and you get there by taking the highway road 73 and then drive off at the sign Skogås.

Ouch, good luck on that! At least there's an elevator at the station

And you do know that you are welcome from Friday already? =)

mhm, yeah, I don't think it would be very good for your back to sleep at the floor. And unfortunately, my place is already full, otherwise I would offer you the fold-out couch

:D I love the results of your crafting, especially that shirt!

Good luck with the operation and hospital stay. I hope everything goes well with a minimum of fuss.
