I should have got a lot of stitching done this week, and I kind of did. But not as much as planned. I had four days off so there should have been lots of time, but then there was playing chauffer for Mom and Dad’s appointments, and my own Dr’s appointment, throw in a little grocery shopping and black Friday at Walmart and there goes the week. But I did manage to get the season of Spartacus that I was missing as well as two BBC nature documentaries for $13.97 combined (on it would have been $50 to get them both, more on  Also I watch the kittens of Tiny Kittens a lot, like hours for most evenings. They are just too cute not to.
The big news, I finished page 2 of Cindy, just two days after the one year anniversary of her start,
then I put her down and got hooked on Futurecast, I think she’ll forgive me. The pewterish metallic I got is perfect though it's more of a black with sliver sparkle when stitched,
Also got quite a bit done on the cabin, And finished Heartfull Harvey for the Pirates exchange, still can't get the sparkle to show up will, but it is kind of subtle

And this is what I watched, other than the kittens
Doctor Who  - Commentary to the end of Season one

Supernatural S10 E07 CROWLEY’s Blab blab blad, and then blab

The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug: Appendices part 9 - This is the reason I buy the extended cuts of  the movies, I love watching these detailed behind the scenes documentaries

The Christmas Carol - Mom has decided it is time to pull out the Christmas movies,
and as she has umpteen versions of  Scrooge, we decided to stagger them through the month. This is the 1938 version

Christmas Comes to Willow Creek - While this has nothing to do with the Dukes of Hazzard, it does star  the same leads, I think they made this just to have fun.


  1. Kittens IS fun to watch but horribly distracting :D CONGRATULATIONS on finishing the fourth page on Cindy! I hope you start the bottom right hand page so we can OO and AAAHHH over the patterns in the skirts, they are as ridiculously pretty as that shawl!

    I have not seen either Hobbit Movie, but feel that I must now. I want to own them and then have one entire day of watching LOTR and HOBBIT to go into overload, tee 60 inch tv will NOT know what hit it!

    I am really loving the Cabin now that it is more than sticks, it's very woodsy. Futurecast...the contrasting pinks on that fabric are a spectacular choice and I'm anxious to see how it turns out.....DRAGON!

    1. I love how the dragon looks, have no idea where what to do with it after, but that's pretty normal for me.

  2. Hooray for that page finish - it looks like not much more to go, and I can't wait for you to finish it! I want to oooh and ahhh, at the dress and at how backstitching will make everything more spectacular!

    Cabin looks really lovel as well, and so dues Futurecast, and the kittens are just adorable !
