KingCon, Durham City’s first geek convention, was on October 12th. I was super nervous but it turned out to be for no reason, as I had a great time and I did quite well! The thing I worried about most was not having enough stuff, but in the end I didn’t need to worry.
Here’s my stuff, all laid out on my bed the night before the con:
Some new stuff and a few older pieces too. Plenty of variety! Here’s my table at Durham’s Gala Theatre:
I ended up being so busy I couldn’t take any more pictures, but by the end of the day my table was looking very bare! My ever-popular mushroom magnets did well, as did the Pokeball badges. I said goodbye to the Phoenix, Snorlax/Tails and Alisia Dragoon, as well as the majority of the small stitchings. I also sold some of my handmade jewellery too!
There were two things that happened that were really awesome. First, I ran out of business cards, which I can only assume is good. Hope some custom work comes my way from that! The other thing is that when people approached my table and saw that the items were actually stitched, they would smile and say things like “that’s so cool” and “awesome”. I always worry that people won’t like what I stitch but I’m glad I made what I did as they were quite popular!
Anyway, that was KingCon, my first foray into the world of conventions. I’m really looking forward to doing another one, but first I have a load of jewellery to make for a couple of fairs I’m doing with my friend Lynn. Will be posting about my jewellery soon, as well as my finished Nei!

I finally got around to getting some half done projects finished in the last week or so!
First we have the Alisia Dragoon stitching I started ages ago:
Next, the Sprite Stitch heart logo (designed by Nintendophile):
A quote from the first season of Supernatural:
And, because I totally forgot to post about it at the time, my Resident Evil entry in to a recent Sprite Stitch quotes challenge:
You will notice that only two of the four are framed…that’s because I’m not quite sure that Alisia and the peepers one are quite done. I feel like I want to add something to them, but I don’t know what. For now, I’ll keep them on ice while I think of something….and start my next project! 😀
I realise this isn’t the tomorrow I was on about in my last post, but what can I say? I’m lazy lol. I’ve not really been doing much last few days except for sitting in front of the tv too much… But, as I promised, here’s some pics of my recent WIP’s. First up – the Fighters’ Guild crest from Oblivion.
My sister requested this one as she’s kinda into Oblivion right now. It’s been sidelined a fair bit what with all the swaps etc I’ve been doing, but I’m back into it and it’s not too big so it should be finished fairly soon.
Next – Alisia Dragoon.
I started this one when my old PC died and I was left for a while with only printed out patterns. Alisia Dragoon was the first console game me and my bro bought with our own money – sadly the cartridge stopped working about a year later, but I still have it for sentimental value 😀 I think that’s partly why I chose to do this one and not one of my other printed patterns (which I must get around to doing, lol).
I’ve also been crocheting and doing blackwork (as birthday presents for my family) and I shall be bribing asking my sis to go on a mission to get pics at the weekend 🙂
