The last week has been pretty awesome, in spite of feeling RAWR. Lots of crafting, plotting, and seeing of friends :) Where to start...

I finished all of Leland's stuff and I'm pretty happy with it all. The gauzey wrap pants are what I like the least I think. But its the first time I worked with that stuff :P otherwise i think its all good.

Delfin had me make him a tabard and a headband, and hung out and watched LOTR with me while I worked. He paid me in candy. I can accept this ;P

I actually rewatched all the movies lately -- it was the first time I saw Return of the King in the extended format. Waaay better than the regular length, for sure. It also helped that I skipped all the parts with Sam and Frodo. :) The discs need more on them about costuming...

Later in the week Jay stopped back by -- he had come over earlier in the week for WALL-E, and had to come back for some phys reps to take to Smoor. I painted some stuff for him (a sign, walls, and an axe), and we hung out for awhile. Delfin came over to get the rest of his stuff and we just hung around and chatted for while. It was nice :) I like having good friends who are cool with just chillin'.

I went to the Stitch and Bitch at Jessyka's and we worked on some phys reps for SOLAR. They're going to be super awesome fantastic and I'll take pictures :D I also had a really good time. I love making stuff, and its good to be in a room with a bunch of girls I actually like, zomg. :B

Yesterday I went with Leland to SteveO's barbecue. Spent the whole time listening to Brian talk, essentially. Was good though, exercised my brain. :) Got to see a lot of people, hear lots of stories. Next time will make a point to hang with SteveO more. Leland gave me some super cool ocean theme bottles :D she should come over and hang so i'll give her her costuming :B

Leland is the only person I get to geek about Tamora Pierce to. She's coming to Dcon! And I messaged her through livejournal at tammypierce and we have tentative plans for lunch on saturday of that weekend. Best birfday present evar!

Today I explored Intown Quilting, which is behind the North Dekalb Mall Macy's, less than a mile from Nicole's apartment. I drooled on myself, almost. So much pretty fabric... sigh

And I've been lazy all evening since. I got favors to make! I'll get on it.

Whoah Whoah Whoah! Not True! I'm stupid excited Tamora Pierce is coming to D*Con, she wrote the Alanna series, which were the first fantasy books I ever read and loved dearly. My original concept for Juliana is loosely based on Alanna; I would have played a knight at solar if they were allowed to shoot bows; but alas, they're not, so go go ranger. lol

Oh, and I'm glad you had fun yesterday. :-) And Brian does talk a lot if you get him rolling, doesn't he? ;-)

You people LOVE me. It's a law. It's in the Bible.

Glad I'm not the only one who skips the Sam & Frodo scenes. And the extended versions of all the LotR movies make it sooo much more enjoyable to watch. I am especially fond of Return of the King! And I think we also watch the bonus features more than the actual movies! ;)

I LOVE the making-of stuff. Where they show the set designs and the costumes and all that. So awesome.
