Since a few weeks, my # # system was no longer able to build the initrd.img for new kernels. This morning it couldn't boot at all with a recent kernel (it did with an older one), so I found the time to look into it: it seems that the problem could have been related to the fact that my system still had split /usr; I've installed the # package and now the initrd.img has been built.

now rebooting, wish me luck :D

Beko Pharm reshared this.

rebooting worked.

Here is why I've uptimes over 300 days…
@Bevilacqua Gustavino sometimes having an updated kernel is nice :D

(also, I tend to shut down the laptop every evening, but that's more for my own sake than the computer's)
Nice story!

here you go! The Dreamstress is one of my favourite historical costumers.
@Teffer thanks!

and I fully agree on the Dreamstress!

I've just realized that watercolours with a water brush are the artsy-painty thing that uses less water among all of the ones that I have around the house.

With just a few squeezes and passes on a wiping cloth for washing the brushes, and no other tool that requires washing, it's pretty hard to beat them.

Given the name, that's somewhat counterintuitive, however :)

(yes, I could be using pencils, pastels, pens and a lot of other things that don't require washing at all)

I have questions about the structural safety pins.
they are historically accurate for the late victorian era

(now that I think about it, I should probably mention that in the instructions, thanks!)

also, I don't like the feeling of the strap behind the neck in most aprons, and I wanted to try something different :)
I wanna know what kind of shirt you're supposed to be pinning that to - most shirts I know would fall apart in a heap with that kind of load. it's definitely a comfier option than the neck strap though fer sure
The apron also has a waist belt, the pins only get the load of the bib, not the full strap and most importantly not of whatever ends up in the pocket.

The shirt I was wearing is a relatively flimsy one in cheap cotton voile that I made myself, so it's probably still sturdier than an average fast-fashion shirt? :( also it's in woven fabric and not knit, which helps.

Dear # and # people: let assume that somebody (asking for a friend!) was planning a band of filet crochet that is 5 squares wide (plus two of border) and was tempted by the idea of using Baudot Code to make it spell some text.

Should it have the columns in order 1 2 3 4 5 as they seem to be depicted on, or should it be 5 4 1 2 3 as in the position of the keys?

(sadly, (afaik) friendica doesn't support polls, you'll have to write your answer in a comment)

caffeine reshared this.

Filed under: I don't really need another # project, right?

An irregular sample of crochet filet, 7 × 8 squares, still active with the crochet hook in it, and another one in bigger yarn, also 7 × 8 squares, but complete; both have a very simple checkerboard pattern with an empty border.

I've received a piece of vintage lace, of a type that would work nicely on a petticoat ruffle.

While handsewing the linen shirt I'm working on, I've also started to think that the same fabric would also be nice for a petticoat or a petticoat+corset cover combination (and I have enough for it).

But such a garment doesn't call for just a bit of lace at the hem, it calls for some lace on the ruffles, some insertion (and pintucks, dere vill be pintucks), and while of course I have a box of lace of various kinds, I don't have enough for that project.

However, the more I think about it, rather than wanting to look for enough matching lace in the stores, I'm tending towards going for a mix-and-match of looks, joined together by a theme of having some history.

So I'm using some lace that I've been given by different people, and then I want to puppy-eye my mother into doing some crochet lace for me, but then I thought that maybe I should also do some myself.

And thus, yesterday I asked my mother to teach me filet #, I did the bigger square-ish under her guide, and then I've started a sampler band, starting with the simplest pattern to get myself to learn the right tension, and then trying various patterns as I go, until I finish the leftover of crochet lace appropriate yarn I've found in her stash.

I don't have any source on historical people doing something like this, but it's underwear, the silhouette will be correct, and nobody needs to know how it looks (other than the people who will see the pictures here on the fediverse :D )

ETA for the project: maybe a couple of years? Don't hold your collective breaths :D

I believe I started working on this in 2019, did a bit, stopped for a long while, did another bit, stopped a very long while, etc. so getting rid of the WIP (and having the finished object to use) is a very nice feeling.

bello! Di materiali, in tutto, quanto ti è costato? Mi piace l’estetica simile a GreenRoom136 :)
ecco... uno sproposito

ho comprato i materiali quando ho fatto il mio, e tra una cosa e quell'altra credo di averci speso più di 200 euro. però buona parte era perché c'erano dei pezzi minimi di acquisto, e da quella cifra sono usciti i due zaini, e ho ancora quasi tutto il materiale (extra ci sarebbero da prendere webbing, cerniera e accessori) per farne potenzialmente un terzo, e di alcuni materiali (soprattutto 3d mesh e imbottitura) anche di più (in realtà il piano non è di farne un terzo uguale, che non mi servirebbe, ma accessori vari).
Ben fatto! 👏
azz, praticamente 2 zaini + zainetto/sling/altro a poco meno del prezzo di uno

Allora ci credo quando il ragazzo di dice che non poteva allinearsi ai prezzi esteri perché faceva tutto in Italia
Beh, c'è da dire che un conto è comprare i materiali per un solo zaino (o 3) nel negozio sotto casa (ok, negozio che si trova in Germania, ma il principio è quello :) ), un conto è comprarli a pezze intere per la produzione di massa.

Non credo che per averli di qualità possano comunque materiali economici, ma sospetto che li paghino molto meno.

D'altra parte, loro devono anche pagare il tempo di chi li cuce (che spero sia decisamente più veloce di me, che ho impiegato una giornata solo per la penultima cucitura :D ), che invece nel mio caso conta come divertimento e si scala dal prezzo dei materiali :) .
non so quanti siano ma sono ben lontani dalla produzione di massa! (Come greenroom a dirla tutta)
beh, ma immagino che ne faranno qualche centinaio per volta, almeno?

comunque ordini di grandezza di distanza dai due estremi della produzione cinese venduta su aliexpress e di chi se ne fa uno in casa
GreenRoom136 non lo conoscevo, invece; la mia ispirazione sono state le varie borse tattiche cinesi (anche per la praticità del sistema), con però uno schema colori il più lontano possibile da quello dei survivalist.

Content warning: sewing, finished apron, ec in the picture

One thing that bothers me while # is trimming the sewing allowances: I understand that having wider allowances makes it easier to sew by machine, but all those strips of fabric waste hurt my feeling even if they end up as stuffing and not in a dump.

So, what I tend to do when sewing french seams is not to sew with half the seam allowance, but sew the first seam at a bit less than that and the second seam at a bit more.

And for flat-felled seams, I tend to cut the fabric with double allowance on just one side, and align the other side at one allowance of distance, as in the picture.

Closeup of two pieces of fabric aligned as described above.

It doesn't really change anything, it's not like I can fit more pieces in the same fabric by saving that 6 mm strip, but it helps my OCD :D

I believe it was the norm in old sewing manuals, but I can't be bothered to look for the source right now, sorry

@WelshPixie (Del On Earth)

I took a picture of the test I did with the posca pen, ironed, and then thrown in the washing machine:

a scrap of fabric with a blob of black paint and the words uni posca, not particularly faded

The blob on top is where I refreshed the paint on the pen, and I forgot to take a picture before washing it, but I believe it didn't wash away.

It's not great for fabric because it definitely has some rigidity that fabric paint avoids, but I think I can confirm it works.

I've used white posca to draw on a black t-shirt - ironed properly and all thst jazz.
Resisted for a month or two but after a year it is close to invisible :(
I'll try to wash it again, then (it's not like I can do anything else with it :D )

18th century pocket. *tactical*!

(Picture of something shaped line a 18th century pocket, except it's made of blue cordura with alternating red and white 2.5 cm webbing sewn at regular 4 cm intervals, and the front slit is closed by a water repellent zipper.)

(Picture of the back of the same pocket, where the webbing is blue (in a darker hue than the cordura), there is no slit, but two small belt loops sewn in the top seam.)

I know, to make it properly *tactical* it should have been camo instead of brightly coloured, but I have no camo fabric at home (and honestly have no plan to buy any) and this was a spur-of-the-moment thing made with leftovers from my backpack-and-accessories.

Dear miss manners,

the company my SO works for has been sold, and they are giving away all the gadgets that they have made, including those that would have never been given to the likes of us¹ such as neckties and pocket squares. How long would it be suitable for me, not related to the company in any way, to wear them? Should I respect a formal mourning period before I use the loot I got from the dead body?
