Small stitching project

This is a wedding sampler I've been working on for a friend. I thought I lost it over a year ago, then it popped up in a box it never should have been in. Thankfully it's no worse for wear. It's about 65% done. All that's left is back-stitching on the middle/right/bottom, but you can see how'd it look from the completed left side. It's a smallish piece, but there's TONS of decorative stitches. On the plus side I've had to do so many french knots that I'm finally doing them right! So practice really does make perfect. Go figure.

Domo-kun Cake

I did this cake for a co-worker's son's birthday. It really shows that it's been over a year since I free-handed a cake. >_< The more I look at it the more I kick myself. However it's not too horrible for something I did without a battle plan. Next time I'm doing a frozen buttercream transfer. My bag control is awful!

Also, I forgot to take a picture till after I boxed it up, so it was shot through the plastic lid. Wee.

Promises Promises

Not dead yet, but goodness knows life is working on it. XD

I just realized that I mentioned a kinect workout game review back at the beginning of May. You would be correct if you said I haven't done anything with it...because I haven't. I blame work and LA Noire. *sigh* If they tied the foot-chase scenes with the kinect you can bet your sweet bippy that people would get up off the sofa.

Also, I hit 100% completion on the game last night because I'm AWESOME. And I'm apparently slightly OCD about my Xbox Live score. Go figure. Btw, if you'd like to add me my user name is morganskye. Add me and feel the love!

I've been gearing up for Dragoncon. I'm working the MMO track to save money. I also get the added benefit of making cupcakes for half the cast of The Guild. That's right! Wil Wheaton will personally be munching on my cupcake. Yes, I intended that comment to be dirty.

So anyway, I'm keen on D*C as well as my last two cons for the year. Now I just need to figure out how to make some scratch for the dealer's room...

Con schedule:
Dragoncon - Atlanta - Sept 2-5
Anime Weekend Atlanta - Sept 30-Oct 2
Roundcon - Columbia, SC - Oct 21-23
