reana_louise Look, don't tell high school Reana, but I get a real kick out of the math in sewing #bpsewvember 3d
  •   h.whit That's why you're so good at it! 3d
  •   adaspragg Gah! Maths! 3d
  •   stevil53 Failed maths at high school but did well at uni maths.... Obviously something you enjoy drives interest! 3d
  •   reana_louise True that @stevil53! 3d
  •   lily28923 Ooh could you tell what the book is? Always on the lookout to expand my sewing library... 3d
  •   craftyandcake Sewing makes high school math make sense 3d
  •   cumquatsandquinces Hehe, me too! Sewing is the perfect combo of left and right brain use! 3d
  •   reana_louise @lily28923 it's "the pattern making primer" by barnfield & richards. I don't have too much to compare it to, but I do like the layout :) 2d

reana_louise Don't be jelly but I've got a pretty hot date with a certain seam ripper this weekend! Non-stretch fabric + my donut addiction means my current project (@grainlinestudio #maritimeshorts) are a little snug #bpsewvember 2w

reana_louise Hai! I'm Reana, a stitcher of 2+ years. I eat food and do other human things. I'm also travelling the world with a sexy man. I've always wanted to be a mascot at a sporting event. I'm so proud to be part of, & awed by, the fabulous sewing community: you help fill my heart & expand my mind every day #bpsewvember 2w

reana_louise The inside of #napoleonsewnaparte's (my machine's) jacket (case) is lined with red velvet & sewing tools. I'm basically a sewing pimpette #bpsewvember 2w

reana_louise My current #WIP are maritime pants & some Christmas presents. I'm usually a one-project-at-a-time girl, but at Christmas I have to get a bit project slutty #bpsewvember 2w

reana_louise Today's #bpsewvember challenge is stash, but I don't have one! I am a free woman! *finger snaps* So here's my roommate's cat, because if there's anything I know about stitchers it's that most of you love cats #binniethecat 3w

reana_louise Techniques I'd like to improve on: 1) the patience & gumption to fix shitty sewing 2) the ability to know which way to turn when doing the nutbush #bpsewvember 3w

reana_louise My sewing space is the dining table, at least until we leave this place in 1 month! I'll be participating in #bpsewvember this month which means lots more sewing pics, but don't worry there'll be food... There's ALWAYS food *BONUS POINTS if you can spot #binniethecat* 3w

reana_louise @kp_wynn has decided to give up his day job & become a hand model, so we got this fig & fennel bread for, you know, props. Also got some portobello & garlic tapenade & glazed ham for, you know, back ups #idowhatican #chickswhosupport 3w
  •   h.whit Fig and fennel!!?!? 3w
  •   reana_louise Sooooo good @h.whit! And the fig is definitely not skimpy. There's no token fig in there, all visible at the top. It's like chunks of fig held together by fennel spiced sour dough. Soooooo good! 3w
  •   h.whit Awww shiet! I really need that! 3w
