Ooooh, yeah, those needles have all those barbs!

Can't wait to see what you made!  I've tried needle felting once, just couldn't get the hang of it.

Thanks, guys!  The black ones are from Ikea, but they are going in the room, too (probably).  The other color I am painting them is not in the photo...it's a bright jewel blue color.

Hey, guess what, craftADDchick?!  Thanks to you mentioning your CSA, I looked up some local farms and just signed up for one, too!  Grin  I can't wait for all the organic deliciousness!  Thanks!

As tomorrow is the day my research project is "due" I thought an update was in order. I have finished everything besides the stove and the floor. This is partly because I broke my foot a couple days ago and have been kinda (not really) resting it. But mostly because they are scary projects!
 For the floor I am going to have to saw through the existing subfloor and vinyl in order to tear it up and replace it. And to refinish the stove I bought a high heat spray paint but I'm worried it won't be glossy and will look bad (although it can't be much worse than it is now). I think this weekend I will take on the stove and as soon as my foot stops hurting I'm going for the floor.

Completely unrelated questions-
Has anyone been to a comic convention? I am thinking of going to the Grand Rapids Comic-Con.
Question 1: would it still be safe/fun if I were to go alone? I have social anxiety and I just moved, so I am really not anticipating having anyone to go with by November.
Question 2: if it's is as Friday-Sunday event, can I wear a different costume each day? Costumes are literally my favourite thing. If I could have any kind of business I would own a costume shop. I want practice making costumes and also I think if I am in costume I will feel less awkward/anxious.
If you have any Comic-Cony advice let me know. I'm kinda nervous but it looks so fun!

Ps- Sorry about  the seemingly random nature of my posts. I am not involved in any other online communities and since we are all nerds here, I figured someone might know Smiley

I haven't been to a con in decades, but as a socially anxious person, I think you can still have fun even if you go alone, especially if you're in costume!  I think wearing a different costume each day is a great idea.  If you can channel the characters, you might even be able to make some new friends.  Smiley

One safety note for women alone:  Lately at cons there has apparently been a bad rash of rude and grabby male behavior toward females in perceived "sexy" costumes, so, to avoid the possibility of such, you might choose less revealing options.

I can't wait to see all of the colors together in the room! And, hooray on the CSA! I'm sharing a small box, but each week, when we divide things up, I'm sorry to see some things go. My brain says, "But I can make a salad, or I can pickle those!" I think that next year, I might have to have a small box all for myself Smiley  I wonder if there is a "recipe-along" for CSA shares? Cheesy

pishaw13, take care of that foot! You want it to properly heal (and it's really okay if your research project takes longer Grin ).

I am plugging away on my Research Project. Although, nobody but me would notice a difference Smiley I had to purchase a bunch of plastic bins (I swear I should buy stock in Sterilite) to use for storage. I am washing anything that can be washed before I store them (and washing the bins, too). I am going to have the worst case of dishpan hands by the time I'm done Smiley But, it'll be worth it if I can get it organized!

Tomorrow, I will be cleaning out the fridge... which means I'll be doing some cooking, too!

I finished my stove  today! And it looks pretty alright. It's not gonna win any beauty pageants, but I think it's much better than before. I need to be a real human and apply for jobs tomorrow, but maybe if I get that done in the morning I can start to tackle the floor. It should only take about two days, but I'm so nervous. I just can't wait to  you all to see the finished product! I'm feeling pretty proud  of  it so far!

Finally making some decent progress on my Research Project.  It is being challenging to figure out the proper order of steps in construction...(that's one of my recurring bugaboos... Tongue)
