Stoked about the #DoctorWho ornament kit and other goodies I picked up at the Stitch Lab in Austin as I left town today. Good stuff, and even better people. ❤️❤️❤️

Talking Neil Armstrong moon landing ornament from 1994! It's an early Christmas gift from my parents, and it rules! Woooooo! #spacegeek

Today’s #TBT is in honor of the awesome #NASA Countdown Clock at Kennedy Space Center. It was shut down for the final time yesterday, and will be moved to the KSC Visitor Complex. A new countdown clock will be installed for the launch of the Orion test flight in early December. This was me when I was at KSC for the launch of STS-130 in February, 2010. It was pretty much the greatest experience of my life (along with being there for the launch of STS-135). Let’s flood today’s #TBT with our favorite old school NASA countdown clock pictures to honor this iconic piece of space flight history! :-D

I won't be able to stand or walk for long periods of time today, but they're worth it, right?
averagejanecrafter : @boxingoctopus strangely, it's not the shins so much as the ankles. They are wedges, which is nice, but they are about an inch too y'all. That put my feet at a weird ankle. It's so goofy to make them so tall! 😜 But still, I wearz them.
averagejanecrafter : @danamadeit one is Carl Kasell (from NPR) and one is something I made in my first sewing class at the Stitch Lab! 😊 I need a lot of visual stimulation in my office at work, because I have no windows! 😜
averagejanecrafter : @craftyhope Thank you! I got them at DSW online. 😊
averagejanecrafter : @xostitches thanks, dear! I've always had a soft spot for spectators. 😊👍
averagejanecrafter : @tweetsweet Word. ☺️
averagejanecrafter : @gingerbreadsnowflakes Thank you, sweet Pam! 😘😘
danamadeit : Haha love it!
craftyhope : @averagejanecrafter cool. Thanks!

The game pieces are fantastic. One for each crew member (hello, Vera!) and even Hands of Blue. Awesome. #Firefly #BestGameInTheVerse

vardewoman : Where's the Zoe piece?
averagejanecrafter : @vardewoman oooh! You're right! No Zoe. (No River, either, but that's because she's part of the mystery you have to solve)
mindboggld : I need to get this for my sister for Christmas. She'd love it!! Even named one of my nieces River lol

Who's going to come play Firefly Clue with me? This was the one thing that saved my sanity in a clothes-shopping-with-a-teenager-at-the-mall-on-a-school-night. I was totally the Old Mom in Aeropostale, yelling, "Gawd! Why is the music so loud in here!? I can't hear myself think!" and talking loudly at the door to the wrong dressing room. Apologies to the guy who I repeatedly asked, "WHAT SIZE POLO DO YOU NEED!?" Oh good gravy.
craftyhope : I want to play!!
hugsarefun : Whhhhhaaaaat? I'll be there as soon as I can get a flight! ✈️
mobipics : It was River in the holding bay with the candle stick.
rstogether : Hahaha!! I once told a sales clerk their music was too loud for their demographic. He just stared. #olderwomanproblems
alisonglass : Hahah. I love your story.
juliezryan : @hugsarefun I know, right?! I was thinkin' the same thing!
carinacraftblog : @juliezryan @hugsarefun Me too! :-D
gingerbreadsnowflakes : Ok I am SURE the music was too loud but holy moly the game! The Game! OMG. I am on my way over to play right this minute!

Making a custom #minifig for my son, using waterslide decals. Poor kid has been begging me to finish this one for ages! Sorry, little dude! #lego
bestmomever - minifig - lego -
catheholden : Of course you are. #bestmomever
averagejanecrafter : @catheholden no way! If I was #bestmomever, I would have finished it for him weeks ago when he originally asked! 😝😉
emptybobbin : Custom minifigs!? Super cool!
heklheraa : My son (4yrs) is just into legos and I totally didn't know this was possible! I will pretend to be cool and do some for Christmas👏
averagejanecrafter : @emptybobbin @heklheraa yep! It's easy. Getting the waterslide decal paper is the hardest part. Google "custom minifigures waterslide decals" and you'll find tutorials and downloadable designs (Flickr is a good resource for designs, too). It takes a few practice prints on regular paper to get the size right, and then you're good to go!
emptybobbin : Thanks so much!
girlcarew : I'm afraid to show my son. The requests will never end!

Gumby giving out candy was just one thing that made Halloween awesome.
dallyingdot : Love that he takes up the entire doorway.
averagejanecrafter : @dallyingdot right!? It was a legit vintage costume, too. So great! ;)
