Things are moving along here. I had to move the hoop today so I gave it a bit of an iron and took a full-length photo.
ONE YEAR. Well, on May 10th, it was one year since I made the first of at least 250,000 stitches that will eventually result in Voltron: Defender of the Universe rendered in cross-stitch.
It’s been a year and two days since I started this project.
1. I am in a 3-day Facebook time-out. Because apparently rape threats are A-OK over there but me telling that person to set themselves on fire goes against the community standards. Just so we know where we all stand, Zuck.
I honestly don’t know where else to ask this!
1. I am working on planning WeePiglet’s bat mitzvah. Once we get a venue, then the real fun will begin. SEND BOOZE.
Things are going VERY well with the Defender of the Universe. I get a couple of hours most days to work on it and I am making massive progress.
I’ve been stabbing away at this, but since it’s a busy time of year for me, I haven’t had as much time as I would like. I took a lot of time in October to sew up a Grim Reaper costume for WeePiglet, which was a smashing success!
I am about to head over to my polling place to cast my votes here in NJ.
I have been a member of my local Freecycle list for almost 13 years. It’s been fun - I have managed to give away some amazing things, and have received some interesting things as well.
26 pages done! I finally finished the blade of the sword and have started on the hilt. Soooo many new colors, yaaaay!
It’s been a busy couple of weeks but I have managed to find a pretty decent chunk of time almost every day to work on the beast.
Penzey’s has been killing it with the politically-slanted posts for some time now. Yesterday he posted about how his posts get reactions ranging from “Customer for life!” to “ugh, keep politics out of it” to “NEVER BUYING FROM YOU AGAIN.”
I was starting to feel a bit like Bill Murray’s character in Groundhog Day, all “this black/white/grey is NEVER. GOING. TO. END” but now that I’ve unfurled it, I can see just how much I’ve finished.
I am making progress on this, even though it is going to take literal years to finish it. I can’t think about that too hard because it’s daunting, but I did it to myself and I WILL finish it! Or go blind, I’m not sure.
I have always loved Voltron. The cartoon was out when I was in 4th grade and I was a huge fan! Still am! At some point, our household acquired a Voltron coloring book, which I still have (but cannot currently locate due to the state of disarray in which my bookcases exist).
I got really bored with Glee, really fast. But I do like to read celebrity gossip, so this dude kept showing up and not in a good way.
Not that I want you to work for free if that is your actual job, but I have an appointment tomorrow with my university’s Career Services and they want to see a hard copy of my resume. I have some questions.
Apparently today is Wednesday? I had no idea. Had you asked me when I dragged myself out of bed, I would have said Tuesday or maybe Thursday? I don’t know. This week is stupid-busy.
In the year 1001, Leif Eriksen set foot on what we now call North America. Not a lot of historical records from those times are available, but we can guess that he didn’t immediately start a campaign of rape and enslavement of the indigenous peoples, unlike SOME PEOPLE whose names rhyme with “shmeuropeans.” (Yes, I…
