The barrette-making continues round these parts. I'm justifying it by giving most away to friends' little girls. I bought some alligator clips off ebay and sewing up little felt slipcovers for them is the perfect tv-watching activity. They've kept me busy for the complete Jane Austen on pbs, new-to-us Joss Whedon show Firefly (so good!) on hulu and tonight I'm going to work on some Super Tuesday barrettes while watching election results...if I can figure out how to sew while my fingers are crossed.
