SFS October

I had very good spendy habits this month

Spent $0
Earned $ 14.00

I’ve worked a couple days at my new job now, the first day was essentially an extended interview to see what I knew, and apparently for me to see if I enjoyed it and fit in, which I did. I’m really happy about this turn of events, and it’s made loosing my Safeway job so stress-less. Down side of course is as figured, starting this Saturday I work 11 days in a row between the two jobs, but so much better to have the overlap that to be wondering where the next pay check will come from

Cindy seems to be moving along so slowly these days, partly because of working on the Halloween thing, partly because that one over one is so freaking small. But gorgeous .

The finish I had this month was the adorable Halloween Sampler from Frosted Pumpkin, this was the SAL and I were working on, they all are brilliant.  Most of  the rest of the NCCIH gals also did Halloween related stitching this month to keep us company.

As for What I watched

Critical Role -  Still ---And because of this awesomeness I discovered...

Game the Game - People playing board games, kind of like Table top, but live

Darby O’Gill and the Little People - An old man spends his time chasing leprechauns, it’s an old Disney movie that’s fun and charming and one of my favourites.  Also it starts a young and incredibly gorgeous Sean Connery

Work News

There’s good news and very minor bad news this week. The good - it looks like I have a new job, still in a bakery this time at a locally owned grocery store. The store that was my first choice to apply, but they beat me to it and asked me to come in for an interview. I start Wednesday very part time as I’m not quitting Safeway until it closes. One of the best parts of this is the store is less than 5 minutes drive from home, I will be taking a cut in salary, but the only way to avoid that was to get into the Vernon Safeway (which was really unlikely) and then I would have a 60km drive each way.  So the gas saved should make up for everything anyway. The bad news - for rest of the month I will be working two jobs, in other words, less stitching time, Cindy will probably go past the two year mark without being finished.

Getting really close to finishing the Halloween Sampler, just two weeks left and I have completely completed the border. Still deciding if I should make the witches face in next weeks square neon, or the subtler green called for.
Also I think I made the Ninja into a Jedi oops

As for what I watched.
Critical Role - The obsession continues

Supernatural - And thus begins season 11

The Martian - This one was truly excellent, the thing I like about disaster movies is there is a problem and they have to find a solution that usually causes another problem and repeat. I love watching people solve problem and this one did it fantastically, Also Sean Bean is in it,…. And he lives.

The Day of the Triffids - Watching a freak meteor shower leaves most of the world blind.  And carnivorous walking plants are finding the them  to be easy prey.. Less corny that you would think, a really decent horrorish movie from the ‘60s

WIPapoclypse September

I’ve been very antisocial this last week.  No reason why, just wanted to be alone I guess, even online aloneness was needed. All I have been doing is working, stitching, and watching Critical Role. That’s pretty much it. My one non alone thing was watching the Blood moon at my brother’s place while toasting marshmallows at his fire pit, such fun, and I got a couple good shots of the moon.
I forgot last months WIPopocolypse so here’s two questions answered

August - Pick one of the WIP pieces you’ve stitched on this month, and tell us about your stitching journey with the piece.
My piece is, of course Cindy. She’s nearing the two year mark which is about half a year longer than I figured she would take, but other projects interrupted and sometimes I just wanted a small break from her, and needed to look at something new.  I’m in the final stretch now and she will be finished by Christmas

September - Where do you buy most of your stitching supplies?
I buy my floss at the local craft store unless I have reason to be in a town with a Michaels. But fabric I scout around for, there is a shop in William’s Lake that has a nice selection for when I’m visiting my sister, and I recently discovered one in Kelowna as well.  But the majority of fabric comes from my Fabric of the month club with Silkweavers, any specific sized fabric and notions I order online, usually from 123 Stitch and patterns I get from all over the place.
I also finished this weeks square on the Halloween Sampler

As for what I watched.

Critical Role, that’s all. That’s it, My nephew has left and I can once again get to my VHS and DVD’s but I haven’t because I’m still so obsessed at the moment, but as I’m just watching the last episode now I’ll probably get back to the movie project this week
