One Mini Done, One Mini Started, and Shopping Happiness

Happy day-after Thanksgiving gentle readers.  May the leftovers be abundant and yummy!

I come to you from LosCon... this year the most disorganized con in the Western world.  Ok, I have not been to all of them, but this one is pretty bad.  It is really quite embarrassing.  You think I am exaggerating, wellllllll, I will close this post with a pic of the Opening Ceremonies.  You'll see.

First things first -- happy, happy, joy, joy!   I have a fini I can show you.  The goose is done!!!!!

And the next Mini Mega piece is started --
 Now the observant amongst you will note that this is not the blue jay which I said was the next Mini start.   Well, I would have started the blue jay *IF* I had brought the black Splendor silk downstairs to the convention panels floor with me, but I did not.  Yes, I am a loser.

But, I am a loser with happy additions to my life---
Today's books shopping:

And today's earring collection -- apparently I was in a blue mood --

Now, it is late and I need to get my fanny in bed so I am perky enough to stay awake in the freezing conference rooms (they have not been this cold for the last couple years so I left the sweatshirt at home.... sigh.), but I did promise proof of the lameness that is this year's con.

Behold the Opening Ceremonies 10 minutes after they were supposed to start:

The person on stage was not part of opening-- she was part of a small crew taping the curtain wall at the back of the stage together.  Uh huh.  I left.  I think they did not bother to tell the guests of honor when/where opening was.  Oh well.  I went and shopped some more.

Here's to tomorrow be another, better day.

Happy stitching to all and to all a good night!

Yayyy!!! The goose is cooked!! And what a lovely goose it is :)
A start is a start ..... Now on to the finish!!
That does look like a rather dismal opening non-ceremony!

Your goose is so pretty! I really like him. Also, great earring choices. I am partial to blue.

Hurray for the goose! But poor jay...I hope he gets started soon.

I had to Google LosCon as I had no idea what it was. It sounds like fun! I like a bit of sci-fi but I really like the idea of a convention. I don't think we have them in the UK, well I've never heard of them here. I'm jealous!
