Broadcasting live from "Little Switzerland," San Francisco. Twitter @TheRealWBTC. E-mail me here. An explanation of the title here. My other blog: The Sutro Tower Fan Club. And no, he's not a greyhound, he's a whippet named Chase (Rocket passed away in March). PLEASE DON'T message me on Tumblr, I don't check those. Yes, it's a real tattoo.

I finally got to see @AmosGoldbaum’s awesome mural in progress at Church and Day in Baja Noe. It’s going to look fantastic!

Finished my Sutro skirt! I like how it turned out. The embroidery is just multiple rows of running stitch + backstitch, done freehand, for an intentionally “homemade” look. The denim was a clearance remnant from Discount Fabrics, and the embroidery floss was all left over from other needlepoint projects, so it ended up being a pretty good recycling project too!
