My Eyes Are Bleeding


My living room, being lived in, with textiles all over the bloody place.

I love this picture.

It’s got everything but the kitchen sink in it. My spinning wheel, three antique oak chairs, my ancient living room heater, a fleece plopped on top of one of the chairs, in bags, ready for washing, and a leaf that apparently stuck to my ass and got walked all over the house for hours, until I discovered it stuck to my sewing chair.

It also has the two newest pairs of shorts in Matthew’s Collection.


Pair #24: My Eyes Are Bleeding
Orange boxer shorts with yellow, blue, and white flowers, and yellow butterflies. Ouch, my eyes.

I actually really like this fabric. It’s whimsical, vibrant, and I particularly like orange. I also really like that my boyfriend is not afraid of flowerey, bright fabrics (where his shorts are concerned anyway—socks are a different matter.) It’s just that the photographs of it came out so. painfully. bright. These are the only two less bright photos. The others looked positively fluorescent.

And Pair #25: My Grandmother’s Wallpaper
Boxer shorts with wide flowery stripes in red, pink, blue, and black.

Matt loves these. He wore them to work today. Or maybe they wore him.
