Work has been keeping me busy so coherent ... speech stuff ... is little beyond me at the moment. (I'm going to a grammar workshop on Saturday, maybe that will help.) So this will be blessedly brief.
Those are crepe-paper cherry blossoms at the top. I roughly followed this tutorial, only I lack a tree branch.
I've taken to learning how to needle-felt. Here's my first attempt at a rectangle in green wool, and conductive stainless-steel fiber.
I've also been experimenting with fusible fibers (and sheets) together with conductive fibers as well.
In tangential news we got a 3D-printer. I haven't logged much time with it yet but am looking forward to some of the translucent and UV-reactive plastics.
Finally, to conclude, I'm going to be busy this year attending all the things.
April, Saturday 6th. Anime Dublin (facebook twitter) Showing people how to make LED-flowers.
April, Saturday 27th - Sunday 28th. MakerFaire UK (website twitter) Helping out at the TOG hackerspace table.
June, Friday 7th - Sunday 9th. GaelHack (website twitter) Doing... something.
July, Saturday 27th. MiniMakerFaire Dublin (website twitter) Again helping out TOG.
July, Wednesday 31st - August, Sunday 4th. O.H.M. (website twitter) Trying to forget that I dislike camping.
Now to find the energy required to do it all.
