Here is the before pic from last month:
|Universal Unity update #4|
|Halloween House update #26|
I really do enjoy seeing non-stitchy pics on other blogs too, just to see what you do for fun where you live. I hope you like these photos!

|Space Shuttle Endeavour|
We saw a great 3D IMAX movie about the Hubble Space Telescope and I highly recommend it!

They had some of the actual space capsules to look at. Oh boy, talk about a tight squeeze!
|Mercury space capsule (the real thing!)|
|Gemini space capsule (the real thing!)|
What a great idea to use the space shuttle over and over again, instead of the one-time use space capsules above. The Endeavour flew 25 missions into space. The 26th mission was to move it from the airport in Los Angeles to its new home at the museum. Here is a photo of it going down the street. You can see the Hollywood sign in the distance.
I took a video with my camera of the museum video of the actual trip of the space shuttle through the neighborhoods on the city streets. You can see it here on YouTube.
Then we went to FIDM (the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising). My daughter graduated from this college. It was a beautiful February day in Los Angeles in the 70s, but today it's in the 80s! There is a grassy park area behind the college, and the only wildlife you'll see are these statues! Haha!
There was a great view of some of the buildings nearby.
The FIDM museum displays the costumes from the movies every year. This is also FREE admission! We saw the costumes from the movies Argo, Lincoln, Les Miserables, Django Unchained, Anna Karenina, The Hunger Games, and many more!
These are the costumes from the silent movie, The Artist, which won the Academy Award for best picture last year. My daughter said we were lucky to be able to see the actual clothes in color, since the movie was in black & white! This was the poster outside the museum, since we couldn't take any photos inside.

This outdoor exhibit of a bunch of light posts was a big hit. Don't ask my why!
Now it's time to get back to cross stitching! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did on my day off!
