Love the BaZnGa!

Thanks! I was pretty proud of myself for locating a font (Nasalization) that was a pretty close match. I wanted to wear it to work today (I teach 6th grade), but it wasn't dry when I went to bed, so I had to plan on something else. I'm wearing it tomorrow when I (finally) go to see Iron Man 3 with my siblings (my brother better wear the Arc Reactor shirt I had made for him, and my sister, who got me hooked on Big Bang Theory, better recognize the significance Smiley ).

Research Project Proposal

Project Name:   Star Trek beaded curtain

Team/Ninja:  Commercial Free All-Stars

Brief Description:   I attempted something like this about 2-3 years ago but didn’t get far because the stringing cord was not cooperative.  But like a good craftster I salvaged the beads (and acquired even more), and now I have better tools to actually make this a reality.  It will be a Star Trek: The Next Generation communicator badge in beaded curtain form.  It will be hung in a doorway or on the wall depending on the final product.  I did a rough estimate and I think it will be over 100 36" beaded strands.

Materials:  beads, rope/cord, 3-ft dowel, black or white paint

Timeline: 3 weeks...by June 6.
Week 1:  Retrieve beads from back of closet.  Measure beads and make beading chart.  Count beads to ensure there are enough based on beading pattern/adjust accordingly.  Find or buy stringing cord and dowel.
Week 2:  Pre-cut lengths of cord.  String beads per pattern (and number each string for easier assembly).
Week 3:  More beading!  Paint dowel and put it together.  Take photos and post!

This project fits my declared geekdom because Star Trek: The Next Generation is one of my favorite TV shows ever!

Added to Research Proposals.  I can't wait to see the finished results. Grin
