Over goesting en ‘moetjes’

Het is hier rustig op naaifront. Voor je me neersabelt... rustig voor mijn doen #schaterlach. Het Khadetjeshuis is nog maar eens ondergedompeld in een communiejaar - niet dat dat hier zo groots wordt aangepakt, daar niet van - en dat zorgt voor een aantal 'moetjes' in mijn hoofd. Tel die samen met het zelfopgelegde 'moetje' dat ik zèlf de kleerkasten wil vullen en veel speelruimte blijft er niet meer over. Khadetjesstijl en al blokkeren mijn handen daarop, te veel moetjes, te weinig tijd, ... nada op de werktafel. 2016 was hier het jaar van 'wakker worden', blijven ronddraaien in cirkeltjes, dat probeer ik te vermijden. Het grootste deel van de moetjes werd geschrapt, tijd voor goestingskes. Iets anders, iets nieuws, iets waar ik zin in had. Enter het spiksplinternieuwe -gratis- patroon van bij OogappelSien; een über schattige salopette. Ik ging op zoek naar een dito model, duwde een aantal stofjes onder de virtuele neus van haar moeder en was érg blij me..

My Jockey Journey or “The Crapification of Men’s Undershirts”

Readers, today I need to get something off my chest and I don't mean my undershirt. Are you familiar with the term crapification? It refers to the progressive reduction in quality of manufactured goods over the last few decades. Remember the toaster oven you owned for twenty-five years and replaced with one made by the same company (or so it seemed) that lasted six months? That's crapification. Compare the Singer sewing machine your grandmother used with the one you use today. Which do you think will still be working in another twenty years? I tend to keep things -- when I can -- a long, long time. My fridge dates back to 1990. I use a Eureka vacuum cleaner purchased in 1987. I have Corningware casserole dishes that go back to the Nixon administration. When it comes to clothes, however, no matter how well made they are, if you use them frequently they wear out. And this is especially true of men's undershirts. We sweat, we dribble, we abuse the High cycle of the clothes ..
