Fan Expo 2010

29 08 2010

My experience at Fan Expo 2010 was pretty rare- I actually had a good time. It sucks to hear all the stories that have come out about people getting denied at the doors after paying for their tickets already and having everyone saying that they waited in line for hours. But I actually enjoyed the time I had there, I got out of it exactly what I wanted: to meet Michael Dorn (Worf) + Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and to come home with lots of Star Trek merchandise. Here are some of my pics:

Getting an autograph from Michael Dorn 🙂

He autographed the embroidery I did of him! yay!

Can’t wait to get Michael Dorn to autograph this when I meet him at Fan Expo at the end of the month!!





New year, new you

Alritee its a new year and its time to get things around here in gear. It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged so I figured I’d get the ball rollin by posting up a list of crafty resolutions/goals/projects I hope to accomplish in the year 2010.

Cross-Stitch

  1. A tetris heart similiar to this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sansageek/3894007961/
  2. Star Wars characters based on Pixgraff’s perler bead works: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pixgraff/sets/72157620672548257/ and RedHerring1Up’s R2-D2: http://www.flickr.com/photos/redherring1up/3320831631/ 
  3. Mini Star Wars characters to put in one of those frames with all the tiny collage type spots: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelwintersteller/3245162826/

Embroidery

  1. Embroider something with some kind of peacock or peacock feather on it. Haven’t worked out the details as of yet.
  2. Some kind of dinosaur-inspired embroidery would be awesome.
  3. Qwantz’s T-Rex on a pillow
  4. I want to complete like 5-10 quilt blocks for my Matthew Good Quilt. I haven’t worked on it in awhile, so yeah.
  5. A Natalie Dee comic turned into an embroidered something for Diana

Sewing

  1. Jedi robes
  2. An Imperial Apron, because this blew my mind and I want one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bearandbird/3721069787/ 

So yeah, we’ll see how this all goes down. I gotta go to work in about an hour so that’s all I’ll write for today. Maybe I’ll get around to writing another post about my holidays. We’ll see.
