Subject:Female Archeologist From Lego? Yes, please!
Time:07:22 am
https://ideas.lego.com/projects/83039

Above is a link to one of the new ideas from Lego. My nephews love legos. They are always building castles and spaceships or other crazy things. They will search forever for the perfect Lego guy to go with their latest creation.

Some of you know that, at one point in my life, I was actually an archeologist. I went on digs, carefully examined the strata, sent samples of burnt wood away for carbon-14 testing, and rescued more than one burial from erosion. I would find things as simple as a flake of quartz chopped off by someone trying to make a decent spearpoint to a full foundation of houses. I worked mostly around here (MD/VA) but also did digs in Mississippi. I later went into museums and then went into the analyst stuff after that.

I would love to be able to give my nephews a female archeologist as their new "lego guy" to play with. It would be great to share some of the stories of Aunt Sissy treking through the woods with only a hand full of ziplock bags, a big old screen (we weighed it once. It was 25lbs alone), a shovel, and a bucket (for artifacts once they are in the ziplock bag. it made them easier to carry). But, in order to do this, we need to vote! Just click on the link at the top of the page. On the right side you'll see a blue "support" button. You will need to log into (or create a new username for) the Legos site.

Subject:Most awesome "lazy" light display EVAH
Time:08:22 am


I found this on reddit and I want to do this next year! The guy said he was too "lazy" to put up all his Christmas lights this year. So...he hand painted the Grinch, Max, and Cindy Loo (check out the window) and had them up instead. :-)

I went by the thrift store today and bought some yarn. I ended up with quite a lot of cranberry colored fluffy yarn, a skein of the green yarn I was looking for, and this. Yes, it is hideous late 1970's/early 1980's yarn. It's so hideous, that it was begging to be made into a something. I've been itching to make a shawl lately so...

The picture above is of the shawl I'm working on. It's very, very basic. Garter stitch borders on size 10 needles. So far, it's actually looking...nice.

Now, if I can convince myself to work on my Christmas dress, that would be a good thing. :-)

Subject:Ebay Photo Thief Alert
Time:06:59 pm
This seller was brought to my attention by Melly of Dentelleetsatin.blogspot.com It appears that the seller is in China and stealing photos from various blogs around the world. One looks like a photo of Very Merry Seamstress and a few others look familiar as well. One I know is from another ebay seller that has been on ebay since the last century.

Please, if you recognize any of the individuals, alert them to this seller.

My prayers are with you right now. Being right outside DC, I know what you are going through right now in Ottawa.

For those that aren't paying attention to the news, up to three gunmen stormed the Canadian Parliament.

Subject:How bad would it be?
Time:02:34 pm
How bad would it be if Yoda's colors were reversed? I bought 3 yards of potting soil brown fleece for both Obi Wan and Yoda's robes - only to figure out that I had Yoda's colors reversed in my head. My nephews all want to go as Star Wars characters. Oldest nephew is going at Luke Skywalker - his jacket will be out of white fleece. Middle Child wants to go as Obi Wan. He'll have a brown knit undertunic, a tan knit tabard thingy, and a brown fleece Jedi robe. Youngest nephew is going as Yoda. Originally, I was going to do a brown fleece Jedi robe with a tan knit tunic that has a green hoodie (with ears!) out of fleece. However, I just looked at all the photos and realized I screwed up the color combo. Okay, granted, youngest is two and doesn't get Halloween yet but should I suck it up and go get more tan fleece to make his robe properly (I have plenty of brown knit for an undertunic) or would it be okay to reverse the colors?
