It’s getting to be crunch time. Seven days from now, I’ll be in Cincinnati for Steampunk Symposium.

Wednesday I spent all day sewing, attempting to get our costumes finished. Missouri has a lovely skirt, and the bulk for my Victorian walking dress is done, it’s just waiting on buttons and trim–which my end up hand sewn on Friday night in the hotel room. (Is it scary or just sad that I’m contemplating bringing my sewing  machine to a convention?)

This year, I will remember my camera. And the charger. And a spare battery. And the cord. No repeats of last year, when I got to take one picture and then my battery died on me. I want pictures, dammit!

I’ll have more details on the costumes once we get back. I also finished a knitting project, but I can’t show it off just yet because it’s for CENSORED. I’m a sketch and a photo shoot away from a finished book proposal. If I’m very, very lucky I’ll be able to send it off before we got to Symposium, but with everything on my plate right now I kind of doubt it.

Lastly: I declare the week of April 28 to be Steampunk Week. that’s when you’ll get the rundown on the costumes, the con, and probably some tea, so stick around!
