I’m two weeks into the Star Trek Novel Project and already have enough books to fill the rest of year — if I were to finish a book a week, that is.
Today, I received a box of books from my friend Paul Semel that included two cool Star Trek craft guides. Because I can’t resist making a sock monkey Spock and cross-stitching into oblivion, I’m officially announcing the Star Trek Craft Project alongside my book reviews.
Rather than reviewing the craft books, I plan to make an assortment of projects from both of them, taking pictures throughout the process. To start things off, I’m going to make a ton of bookmarks. I have a bad habit of losing bookmarks and right now I have someone’s business card (that I picked up during E3) wedged in a copy of Metamorphosis (my next STNP book) and feel a bit bad about that.
After that, I think I’ll make this delightful “He’s Dead, Jim” framable cross-stitch. The little bodies in the border are troublingly adorable. Also, Sassy says hi.
Thank you again, Paul. I will put all these books to use! If you would like to donate to the project, hit me up on Twitter (@vitiosuslepos) or through the comments on this blog. I hope to have my review of the TNG novel Metamorphosis ready by this weekend.
You might have noticed that there’s an Enterprise book in that pile. This means I will not only read it, but finally try to make it through Enterprise. I hated that series the first time, so, we’ll see how this goes.
