I've been making progress on my Hotel of Bees shawl. Since it starts from the wide end and gets progressively narrower, it gets faster as I go. I feel like it's probably going to be a bit small, but I may be underestimating. I'm loving the color scheme. Most so far has been pink, but more of the white speckle and yellow are coming up soon.
I went to my first sci-fi/fantasy con (SoonerCon) over the weekend. Some friends of mine invited me and I had a great time. I attended lots of fun Science Fiction panels, as well as several talks by NASA astronaut Dr. Stan Love. I love hearing about space and living in/visiting space, and the practical concerns about traveling in space. I dressed up one day in the fun Star Trek costume I made a few years ago and it was a blast. I remembered only the night before that I no longer had the communicator badge from when I first made the costume, so I whipped up a new one out of polymer clay and painted it with my grandpa's old hobby paints the next morning (ignore the stain on the top of the washer). It always makes me happy to get to use those. I also won a cocktail napkin from Gene Roddenberry's (the creator of Star Trek) Hollywood Walk of Fame after party as a door prize. It was so fun and random. I also thought the signs around the Sarlacc pit were fairly amusing. On the other side was a big multi-part sign like you'd find on a zoo with all the natural history information about the Sarlacc.
|In case you can't read it: DO NOT CLIMB INTO OR FEED THE SARLACC PIT. Then in smaller letters underneath: THAT WOULD BE DUMB AND YOU WOULD PROBABLY DIE FOR REAL.|

One more thing to like: tasty cheesy potato-ham-tomato casserole. Yum!
