Fiction with recursive loop
  • You can try 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton! I really liked that one. It’s more Groundhog Day but with a bit of a twist on each iteration if that makes sense. I don’t want to spoil too much but it was a wild ride putting things together.

  • Mutant violet?
  • This plant is just severely etiolated as it’s desperately searching for more light, not mutated! You will need to give it better lighting conditions if you want the new growth to be more compact.

  • Implemented automatic door opening
  • Ah that’s cool! I look forward to seeing your updates then! Have you seen the other spin off games like Paralives and Life by You? It might be interesting to see what kinds of stuff they’re lifting from sims and where they are expanding/changing things.

  • What are you working on at the moment ? And how is it going ?
  • I’ve been back in a quilting mood recently. Mostly finishing off a bunch of mini quilts I’ve been putting off for too long and slowly working myself up to the three big ones I told myself I need to do. Now I’m at the point where I have to baste the large quilts and I hate this part…

  • Review: Speak of the Devil by Rose Wilding
  • Oh this sounds pretty good! Gives me the Murder on the Orient Express vibes with the setup so wouldn’t be surprised if that was the general inspiration for it. But I am interested to read it myself now.

  • Subscription list is empty

    I switched over to the app last night and noticed that my subscription list is empty. The Home screen shows my subscription posts correctly but the actual list of them is never populated even after force closing the app and reopening.

  • I remember once reading that someone did this for real. And another person would tear their paperback book in half if it was too thick to hold. I was very sad for a while after that.

  • It's been some time since the last achievement thread !
  • I cleaned out the lint from inside my sewing machine and oiled it for the first time since getting it…. like 5 years ago. Heh. Suddenly all those noises I kept complaining about went away, who would have thought! For real though it was much easier than I expected and it’s running so quiet and smooth now.

  • DEATH STRANDING 2: ON THE BEACH – State of Play Announce Trailer
  • Somehow they managed to make the game look even stranger than the first one, which I didn’t think was possible. I remember trying to watch a playthrough of the first game and it was a bit too out there for my tastes already.

  • Made my first rubber stamp and printed some tea towels!

    I’m making some gifts for the holidays and decided to try lino printing. I drew and carved this stamp out as a first test run and I really love the results. Going to be making some more real soon!

    Found these growing on the side of a large downed tree

    They were quite large too! Really pretty set.

    I recently took a pottery class and this is my favourite piece!

    I made a lot of pots for my plants, and this is one of the few that I kept hole-free. I love the color combination on it!

    Made two of these roasted garlic, rosemary & thyme loaves yesterday!

    The smell of the roasted garlic was sooo good.
