Project 52, part 3

March 30th, 2015

I am now a quarter of the way through my Project 52! The weather has been gorgeous lately, so this recap has more outdoors photos. I’m trying to enjoy it while I can before the dreaded Texas summer heat arrives.

As mentioned before, you can see the full set on my Flickr or Tumblr :) Here is a recap of weeks 10-13!

#10 – Another Path
I was taking a walk through a nearby greenbelt when I came across this sign. It seems enough people ignored it that another path was created through repeated walks.

What I’m up to, #5

March 22nd, 2015

It’s been a while since I did one of these entries! It’s mainly because I haven’t used my sewing room in several months. I just haven’t been motivated to work on anything new.

However, on Friday, I cleaned my sewing room, and then yesterday, I helped a friend with a small sewing project. I think that gave me the push I needed because I’m itching to start on a new sewing project now.

What I’m Sewing

I’m finally going to turn this fabric into some curtains for our game room:

I bought it last year at the same time as the green fabric I used for our guest room curtains. I just procrastinated on making another curtain because they are soooo boring to make. Fortunately, they’re easy to make. It’s just not very exciting ^^;;

Then I’m going to work on a couple new cosplays. I’ve mentioned these two before, which are Phi (Zero Escape) and Misao (Rurouni Kenshin). Both are fairly easy to pattern and make, so I hope they won’t take me too long!

Oh, and it’s been a while since I showed my sewing room. Some of you might remember when I gave my sewing room a make-over a couple years ago. Here’s how it looks now! It’s pretty much the same, but the walls are filled in now, and I have a cutting mat to work on the floor.

Birthday and hackathon recap

March 16th, 2015

Aahh, it feels good to be able to sit here and blog. The past few days, I’ve been fighting a stomach bug and have been confined to lying on the couch because sitting or standing for long periods of time felt uncomfortable. Fortunately, I had a whole season of Top Chef recorded to catch up on, which you know, is the perfect thing to watch when I can’t eat anything… (I make great decisions sometimes.) I’ve been a bit behind on returning blog comments because of this too :(

This actually started on my birthday. The thing with being born on March 13th is that sometimes it falls on a Friday the 13th… like this year! I turned the big three-oh (30) last Friday, and I suppose it cursed me with a stomach bug.

But it wasn’t all bad! First, I got great gifts from my husband and friend. My husband got me Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, a Mario amiibo, and a cupid Kirby plush. My friend got me The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth and three more amiibos (Mario, Luigi, Bowser). These were all things I wanted! (I’ll have to exchange one of the Mario amiibos though.)

My coworkers were also super sweet and surprised me at work. They got me two cakes and one even made brownies. (Sadly I wasn’t able to enjoy them due to my stomach issues, but I appreciated the thought!)
