Well, I didn't get everything that I would have liked to have finished for Marcon 46. That's okay, though-Julie was kind enough to lend me a back-up skirt, just in case I didn't finish mine.
I did complete my first sewing project! (well, first since Home Ec in the 7th grade). I made a little draw-stringed purse, which I will use with my Steampunk costume this weekend. This project was trial and error...mostly errors. ;) It took awhile, but I did finish it!! This project helped me become more familiar with my sewing machine, and now that I know I can use it properly, future projects will seem less daunting. (well, that's my hope, anyway.) ;-D I'll post some pictures soon.
I also have to debut my new toy-the Fourth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver!! I'm sooo excited! I've wanted one for years, but they were always out of my price range. (most were collector/model types). Character Options debuted their version earlier this year. Late last year they debuted the Third Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, which I was considering, but never purchased (well, not yet anyway. ;) ).
Yikes, it's getting way too late. I'll be tweeting from Marcon (must remember phone charger this year!!!)
Everyone have a fun and safe holiday weekend!!!

Things to do this weekend:
-update blogs (yes, plural)
-clean house (gah, I hate cleaning-what I hate more is a messy place)
-laundry (blarrggg, but I do like wearing clean clothes...)
-empty outdoor flower pots, bring up outdoor decos and summer lights
-get to the garden store to refill soon-to-be empty pots :-D
-work on mock-up skirt, as well as other crafty projects
-catch up on dvr showings...once again I'm over 90% full. Hard to believe I was actually down to the mid sixties before the new year.
-READ!!! Uggh, I haven't had time to read! I wanna be farther along into A Clash of Kings and I've had to renew more than one manga twice already!! That never happens!
-get cards in the mail. (I'm already late with Mother's Day cards and 2 birthday cards. Hopefully my niece T's card will actually be on time.)
Seriously, there is not enough time in the weekend. Although, as I have come to the sad reality that a long vacation up north might not be a possibility this summer (WAAAAH), I've decided to take a day off here and there and make long weekends of it, starting next week. Next Friday, and then instead of taking just the Friday of Marcon off, I'll be taking the Thursday off, too. Mostly to try to finish up all my costuming. After my sewing lesson Sunday, I discovered there are a few more things I need to purchase at JoAnns.
...although a long trip up to MN might be out, I haven't given up on the idea of a long weekend. Although the logistics of that will be a nightmare-trying to see everybody within a couple of days could get crazy. ;) We'll see.
I've got a baby shower to plan! And a baby blanket to finish before said baby shower! LOL. :)

pondering in the middle of the night...
...can be a bad thing. ;) Ahhh, insommnia is a crazy thing.
Still haven't posted a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen yet-but I am working on one...
I need to post more! I've got several projects coming up that I can post about-Sunday I'm getting a sewing lesson! I've got some costuming ideas for Marcon at the end of this month-so if I want to make them happen, I have to get going on the sewing! ;)
I need to decide what I'm going to try to grow on my back porch this year-I think I'm going to stick to flowers and foilage-as the vegetable experiment didn't work out too well last year...although I still might try to grow tomatoes in a pot.
*yawwwwn* Getting sleepy-but before I go, I just want to say Congrats to Perseph and Paul-they are going to have a little boy in the fall!! :) :)
