August SFS

Spent $18.78
Earned $4

It’s time again for SFS and I spent a little more than usual, went to Micheals with my 50% off birthday coupon and stocked up on some bobbins and floss, luckily for my budget the other store in Kelowna was closed, I’ll have to remember not to go on Mondays.
My earning was for the third ornament in Magical’s birthstone set,
 I’ve also stitched the silver squares for the rest up to October, and have taken a short break in square stitching to start the Halloween SAL that I’m doing with the NCCIH gang and anyone else that joins in, go to Alaskan Wolf Pack to find out more
And in all of that I haven’t forgotten Cindy, didn’t get tons done but still there is progress.
Everyone is off holiday next week so my hours will go down a bit, but we had one person quit (again, as long as we have the boss we have, we aren’t going to be able to keep new people for long) so hours won’t get cut as much as they used to this time of year

As for what I watched.
Doctor Who S06 E10  to S07 E11 Which marks the end of Amy and Rory (I think Rory might be my favourite companion ever) and the start of Clara.

Volcano - I’ve talked about how much I love disaster movies, but this is my
absolute favourite, I LOVE this movie. One thing I love about disaster movies is how everyone comes together to solve the problems, to help each other stay alive and even sacrificing for the greater good, which actually happens a lot in real disasters a lot.  No disaster movie shows this phenomenon better. While there is a couple “bad guys” and/or stubborn stupid people who should just listen to the experts (see my rant when I watch Dante’s Peak in the next couple months) they are few and far between, mostly this is just a movie about how to get lava out of the way of the people.  Also it has Tommy Lee Jones just to add that extra something.

To Be Takei - Documentary about George Takei, from interment camp to Sulu to politician  to gay right activist to Allegiance, to internet superstar

United  - A good movie about the Manchester United football team of 1958
when the players were in a plane crash, killing most of the team. While it’s a very similar storyline to We Are Marshall (both based on real events) it’s interesting to see how different the British movie  is from the American, United is a much quieter and introspective movie, also it has amazing music by Clint Mansell


  1. Your ornament and Halloween blog look great, and Cindy's making some nice progress as well!

  2. The ornament on black is so amazing! I love how it turned out :D Halloween and Cindy are also both looking good :D

  3. the ornament on black is BEAUTIFUL! Cindy is.....a mind blower....I keep forgetting that after the regular stitching is the one over one and THEN the back stitching! Your favorite part you save for last which I believe to be a good thing :D
