I'm at LosCon. I'm at LosCon. neener neener neener
Ok, so it's not very mature. It's authentic though. lol
When I checked in I was a little dubious of where they told me my room was --- all I could think was "oh, great. A view of the parking lot." But here's what I have:
[Please note that they have not changed the ultra unpeaceful carpet. lol It's kinda like an old buddy now.)
Yup, that there is my own patio with room to amble around, comfy chairs, and a view of the pool
And then I note that I have a view at just the right light angle that is so appropriate to the Con -- remember the alleged face on Mars? Well check out the lady in the patio rock -- lol
So far today I've had a grand and successful time. I've paneled (and discovered the person/panelist to be avoided at all costs. OMG Shut up already lady you complete, off-topic yammering git!!!!), I've shopped (see below), and I've stitched (also see below).
The shopping was for books. I mean that is what got me to my first LosCon afterall -- I picked up a Pratchett quotes book (and have already gained several giggles out of it), a new Yarbro (love her), and an Alastair Reynolds volume of two novellas (what can I say, I'm a sucker for short fiction).
As for stitching I can report great progress today on Mirabilia's Halloween Fairy. When I arrived this morning I was here (but the holes in the center of the body were already filled in):
Tonite at 5:30 I had made it to here:
Say Barbara -- I have a question for you -- I ran across this in my antique stash pile.
It's on aida and has the threads (but I'd ignore them if I were you because they didn't include all the colors they were supposed to which is what made me so annoyed the day I discovered why I didn't have the "right brown" that I bagged it up and stowed it away). Might it be something you'd like to finish for one of your little angels? If Barbara doesn't want it, does anyone else? It's yours. All you need is a supply of misc browns so you can pick out the appropriate shades.
Wawana -- thanks for the vote on the fabric choice. I like the darker too I think. I'm wondering if I should go darker -- more like a natural linen. Sigh. So many choices!
Well, I'm off to watch Numbers and stitch... then write a memo. Oh the joy of con life!
