I’ve always admired geek-craft in all of it’s many forms, and I’ve always loved Star Trek: the Next Generation. So what better place to start my journey into the fun world of needle work than here, with this cute mini Star Trek cross stitch pattern by Black-Lupin over on Deviant Art. I have messed up a little here and there, but considering its a first attempt I’m feeling proud of my efforts! When this is finished it’s going up in my hallway which will from then on by a shrine to all things geek-craft!
So far I’m finding cross stitching enjoyable. It’s very easy to learn and you can get lost in it for hours. However, it is time consuming. It’s seems to take hours to get one small pattern completed. Maybe I’ll become a faster stitcher in time. I’ll be sure to post the finished product here once it’s completed!
Different Creatures | Circa Waves:
An upbeat but powerful album filled with thunderous bass guitar riffs and pounding drums that'll make you want to jump up and dance.
Different Creatures has filled the indie-shaped hole in my music collection. It's the kind of album you need for the morning commute to a job you hate. I'm having trouble listening to this album at a sensible volume (Track 6 in particular). Not great news for my tinnitus :/
"Over the years, I've spent a worrying amount of time consuming science documentaries, lectures and podcasts on YouTube. Some lessons stick in my brain easier than others, but I've always struggled with the quantum world. I decided to knuckle down and learn the very basics of quantum gravity with Rovelli's book - written for those who (like me!) may not have a scientific education - to gain a solid understanding what science says reality is made of.
