Trying to get back into the swing of things now that I'm not hacking up a lung when I cough. Hopefully I can stay on schedule.

Sorry for missing last week. I wasn't feeling well. I still don't, but I don't want to get out of the habit by missing two weeks.

So, the mostly-super-secret-experimental project is DONE. Mostly. Enough that I'm gonna post it. ^_~ I have a little patch work to do. The sewing machine is still in the shop, so I picked up a cheapo handheld stitchy thing. It's okay, but not easy to use and hard to control.

Anyway, the experimental portion of this project was using waste canvas on non-evenweave material. In this case a mini messenger bag. Waste canvas is just barely held together with water soluble glue. So a pair of tweezers and a whole lot of patience to pick the canvas apart and out of the design and tada!

This is a day by day thing, so it is a bit picture heavy.

But enough of that... on to Nightwing!

Not as much done this week as I had planned. I was going to use the long weekend to binge on movies I hadn't seen yet and sew until my fingertips bleed. But things rarely go as planned. Biggest problem was that I managed to break my sewing machine... again.If I can get it repaired cheap, awesome. If I can't I'll need to pick up a new one, and that was money I wasn't looking forward to spending.

Plus I'm also working on a super-duper-secret test project. With any luck I'll get it done this week.

Not as much done as I normally do during the week. I had a book I wanted finish, and I've been working on reorganizing my desk in order to make space for my sewing machine. The current layout of my room makes it impossible to bring in my usual folding table to work on.

Yesterday I finished another page in the pattern, bringing me to 6 out of 36 finished and I have also now completed the pattern straight across to the full width. Now on suggestion (demand?!) from Kitsune I'm going to start moving up the fabric.

Sorry for being so late with my update. I was away at Otakon this weekend, hanging out with MadamHydra and Kitsune (the original artist for this). We had fun, slept little and ate pretty darn well. I didn't get home until nearly 10pm on Monday night. Which meant that Azthahar was not under any circumstances actually getting unpacked from my suitcase.

So you get the update today.

I doubt I'll be updating next week as I'll be at Otakon manning Kitsune's table in the Alley. If you're gonna be there stop by and say hi!

So not as much done as I was hoping this week. Between the killer heatwave and Arthur being a nosy, bity brat, not much happened.

Ugh, not much done this weekend. I lost most of Saturday cleaning and puppy proofing my room. The family came home with a rescue terrier/beagle named Arthur. Took everything I had to not make 'Merlin' jokes, sadly I only made it 24 hours before I cracked. So won't be getting a lot done until he settles in and stops chasing my cats. Crossing my fingers that I don't end up being the only one to walk the dog like I did before.

Again, not as much done this week as I was hoping. Between my sinus starting a revolution and my overhead light that I use for crafting crapping out on me, focusing on the fabric was tough.

Almost thought to wait until Monday, especially with how freaking hot & humid it was Saturday and how hard it was to even look at the fabric, much less hold it.

Not as much done this week as normal. It's been a pretty rough week. And this weekend wasn't much easier, emotionally at least.

Anyway, enough whining out of me.
