Vanya Sulie - Chapter 2

This blog started with Cindy and now that she’s done, I’ll consider this a new chapter,  It seems very strange not to be working on her, but I’m enjoying the easier patterns.  I did as said and have three on the go, Magical’s ornaments of course, I’m doing June now with sparkly thread that I of course both love and hate.  
The chess mini cushion for the non entry to the Stitching Pirates contest this one is such fun and of course me been me I’m doing it on black instead of white,

And I have started Make it Pink’s Mulan the fabric is from Silkweavers and is lovely

As for what I watched.
Critical Role - rewatch is complete, I almost want to do it again

Supernatural S11 E07-12

The Lizzie Bennett Diaries Ep 1-48 A You Tube web series that is a modern retake of Pride and Prejudice It’s a lot of fun

Shadowhunters: S01 E01-E  Netflix show based on the Mortal Instruments books, changed quite a bit from the book but in a much more appropriate way than the movie did. Looks like this will be a good one

Muzzled the Musical: There is a wonderful world of you tube shows that I’m starting to discover and this three parter about song wars is awesome.

The Da Vinci Code - Like the books I prefer Angels and Demons,
but this is still a great mystery movie.  I still don’t like Tom Hanks as Langdon, he just doesn’t fit the role for me.  I do like that they toned down the romance that was in the book as it seemed very forced in the book

The Day After Tomorrow - High budget disaster movie that takes the actual effects of global warming and makes them happen in a week instead hundreds of years. Canada is toast, well frozen actually. A really good disaster movie and of course the dog survives

Dear Frankie - Independent Scottish Film, a woman needs a man to pretend to be her son’s father for a day, she gets Gerard Butler,

Dead pool - Well that was fun, the opening credits alone are worth the price of admission.

Die Hard - It really is one of the best action movies out there in no small part due to the villainy of Hans Gurber played by the great Alan Rickman.


  1. Those ornaments look amazing on black! I am curious how the chess embroidery will turn out :) The fabric for Mulan is perfect! and a good start too :)

  2. Great new starts (or re-starts in the case of these ornaments). It is a bit strange to see your blog without Cindy, but the start on Mulan looks so awesome, I'm sure she'll become a worthy successor :) Lots of watching again too, looks like your back on track with your alphabe project!

    1. I am, of course I get distracted by other things like Critical Role and the Lizzie Bennet Diaries but that has always happened.

  3. I like your new starts, and I'm sure I will always think of Cindy when I read your blog. She'll be like a patron saint ;)
