This is once again IHSW and for the first time in a long time, I have Saturday off work and no other plans, can's wait to hang out at Carla's with the gang.
I had a couple of good stitching days already this week, I finished my topiary bookmark, the pattern I think came in the last BOX from Carla, my bookmark was a little bigger than the pattern so I added on and extra layer of tree and a bunch more butterflies, and for the first time actually used beads instead of french knots, since I wanted the butterflies bodies to shimmer and shine.
I also started (just) the baby record for my nephew's third child, poor thing, I had the piece done before the other two were born and this one is nearly a year old. But I finally found the perfect pattern so that's why it must have taken so long. I've still got a way to go on it.
And I got some serious work done on Cindy, but all in one colour, just because I could, I am loving the working with the grid, it allows me to jump with one colour so much easier. I also took out the top line of it, just to see if it would remove as easily as the instructions say. I wanted to know cause if it didn't I'd rip it out now and save myself the hassle later. It came out beautifully though, just glided out without disturbing a single stitch, I officially love it.
Along with the stitching came the watching, this was my week
Vikings - S01E01- 02 Carla made me, with help from my friend Donna.
Game of Thrones S04 E02 - Bwahahahahaha about time.
