What to do with a rickshaw

So, I had to buy this of course and I brought it home all excited because when do you see rickshaw fabric?  It must be old because who would do that nowadays and then I started to worry that it might be culturally insensitive and now I am thinking that I won't be able to use it for anything.  Am I crazy? Or is it fine and I can make zippered pouches or whatever and no one will think twice about it?  What do you --my half dozen (I think, but maybe it is just five) -- readers think?

3 inches across

So at 10 o'clock at night I am going outside to get the sheets that I hung up to dry (I am tired and it is time for bed and of course I have not made the bed).  My clothesline is under my patio because the sun would quickly destroy my clothes here in the desert.  I see something on the ceiling and had to show you one of the things that goes bump in the night.

Not that big you say?

You know when the spiders need red eye reduction you are in trouble.

My goodness, I have been doing a lot of not much lately.  I have had no luck at the thrift stores and have not felt the need to create much.  I did revamp some clothes to wear to my internship (which started today).  And I took lunch in my bento lunchbox which was a great success.  So I am just checking in and showing you my boys in their new hairstyles.

I did give my studio a good cleaning and managed to give a great big pile away on freecycle.  Here is a picture in the dark of my lovely bits that I cannot seem to give up yet--they look especially nice without all the cobwebs.
Off I go now to do my homework--loads of reading and thinking about great big social problems.
