It is now 2014: The Year of the Magnificent Teresa Wentzler
If I remember semi correctly this idea came up months ago in a random conversation with Carla. We were congratulating ourselves in keeping with the promises we vowed for 2013, hers to organize and work on leaflets that she had been collecting for years, and myself to word on smaller projects as well as my BIG ones, Cause I love a Big Ass Project. We were thinking about what plans we would have for 2014 and of course I already knew I'd be spending most of the year working on Stroke of Midnight, so we came up with the Year of Teresa Wentzler, I took a head start as I was ready to begin at the end of November, but since this piece will probably take me all year I didn't think it was cheating. I love Teresa's notes on this one
This piece is BIG. Add to that the blended floss colors, the usual quota of fractional stitches, and a fairly large over-one area and this piece becomes a true stitching marathon! For the experienced stitcher who is accustomed to complex designs, it shouldn't pose any problems, but it is definitely not a piece for beginners.Good thing I like big projects, this is where I am right now.
I have a couple other random resolutions in place for this year.
1) I joined Stitch from Stash and will try to keep my spending to $25 a month, but since I already have everything I need for Cinderella I should be able to manage this.
2) and this is the strange one, after rearranging my shelves due to making St. Peter's Basilica out of books, I realized how many of my DVD's I hadn't watched in years, so I'm going to watch all the movies I own (not downloaded) in alphebetical order, sort of. I will be watching a disc of a TV series - West Wing- at the moment and then a movie then the TV show, starting with #'s then Z's. then A's then Y's etc, should take me at least a year, I, again have already started this and have gotten, well, no where really I'm still in the #'s
So without further ado, what I have watched this week.
The West Wing, finished season 1
The 10th Kingdom, a great miniseries that I bought sight unseen from Amazon to up my order to get free shipping, I'm loving this show, only one episode left, and it has the most wonderful opening sequence.
Also went to see Frozen finally, been trying all month but finally got to the matinee on the last day it was showing in our theatre (remind me to dedicate a blog to the theatre, it deserves one)
Well I loved Frozen so much I went back to the evening show.
Note if it worries you, this vid does contain spoilers, but it's awesome.
