Stich 'n' Bitch

Before biking over to Potrero Phillip and I stopped for a cocktail - aka well margaritas - at El Rio around the corner. I've been here several times but never really appreciated the spirit of this bar. While the 5hundo Club strikes a homesick chord, El Rio embodies much of my spirit in one fine facility: the drinks are cheap, the decor is vulgar, there is weekly burlesque, and it's pretty gay. I will be making point to swing by more often, especially since they allow dogs to run around on the patio.

After a quick happy hour pit stop I went over to Laura and Cake's house for Laura's Bellingham import: Stitch 'n' Bitch, a weekly meeting of arts and crafts. As the title loosely suggests, friends gather together to work on whatever projects they are working on and chat about whatever thoughts are on their minds. Tonight I worked on my secret project and painted a self portrait for Cake and Josh's SF0 task. My rendering was pathetic but the others (ASG/BFs!!) fared pretty well. Laura also finished her coconut bra and started a few t-shirt dresses.

Jar busy with the evening's pièce de résistance

Now that Laura has created the space, I have a lot of object gathering to do before next Tuesday. (All will be revealed within the fortnight - shhhhhh!)

I love that picture of Lula and Philip. Is that a sling you take her around in? I tried Zidane in the baby front carrier and he loved it. I even wore him in it while ironing....
