I'm getting ready to start on the Overly Ambitious Embroidery Project, as it occurs to me that I'm terribly out of practice on stitching.  Not to mention that I haven't even tackled this sort of embroidery before.  So I think, for practice and as a sort of warm-up, I'm going to try to stitch up a copy of the Wow! signal.  It's fairly simple, being all text and only two colours, with no diagrams, so it's probably a good place to start.  It's also one of my favourite bits of astronomy history.  I was originally going to do the Pioneer plaque, but that's a tad more ambitious than I'm up to at the moment.  I'll probably do that one later.

The Project is going to have diagrams in it though for more complex things (Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion come to mind), so I'll still have to do those at some point.  But for now, I'm just going to start of with equations.


As for why I haven't started on the Project already: I wasn't very organized last semester, and I ran into a lot of unexpected issues.  But things are starting to settle now and I'm making progress on a good number of those ongoing issues.
