Welcome to the ongoing geeky adventures of the Craft Addict! Yes, more Dragoncon sewing but I think you’ll like this one. My lovely friend Meredith made a passing comment on the Book of Faces one day about sewing a Star Wars pin-up dress with some sheets she’d bought. The shop had recently gotten in some awesome Star Wars fabric so of course I had to use that comment as inspiration for my own geeky dress. If you’re going to be… Read more »

Somehow, we managed to not make it there for eight consecutive years. Sometimes it was a money issue; often, we just had other plans (usually… Read more »

My sweetie pie cousin and her honey came for a visit again this weekend, this time so we could all go to the RenFest. While the weather has been pretty nice all week, it rained yesterday. On and off. All day. Any plans I had to take lots of great pictures at the RenFest were dashed, since I didn’t have much interest in ruining my 30D. We did manage to snap a couple of pictures in the parking lot before… Read more »
