August WIPocalypse

It's been a non productive month for me, partly because of the usual month of Tour de France, the scenery is just to pretty to stitch through.  But even more than that, at the beginning of the month I seized my pelvis (don't quite know how but oooooouch.) and couldn't sit, or really move at all, even had to use a cane for a couple days.  I got it fixed up fairly quickly, thank you chiropractor, but the actual ache took a while to go away, and I really couldn't sit in a position that was comfortable for stitching, that cost me about two weeks.
Then these last two weeks my nephew and one of his room mates was staying with us as they had been evacuated from William's Lake due to the fires. Of course this meant that I lost my movie watching TV for the duration, the plus was their company,
So now everything is back to normal, and I even have a few days off for a staycation,

The other notable this month was my birthday.  As my parents had both a wedding and a funeral to go to that day, I had the day to myself and I took advantage of it and went on a drive. I had a great day at Mt. Revelstoke National park.

As for WIPocalypse, the question of the month is.

What are your oldest and your newest WIPs?  This is a simple one for me, my oldest is the fractal, of which I finished another page since last check in, and am close to finishing another one, as stated before most of the pages aren't full.

The newest is the baby announcent thingy for my neice, and I'm almost finished, should be done before the end of the week.  And then I think I will start the Leo and Carla's Halloween SAL a little early.

As for what I watched

Critical Role, Talks Machina and Table Top

Tour de France - This is why my stitching stalls in July, too much pretty scenery

Salvation  S01 E01 It’s a disaster TV series of course I’d watch it.

Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets - I was after a light fun sci fi movie and this really delivered.

Eclipse - Both book and movie, this is my favourite of the Twilight series, more than any of the others this one goes into the backstory of the rest of the Cullens, also it has  a better villian with a more satisfying fight as well

Breaking Dawn: Part 1 - I didn’t have the final two movies for a long time, but then I found a two pack for 5 dollars and my need to complete sets kicked in. This one isn’t the best or the worst of the series, it just kind of exists. On a side note this has a connection to the collapse of a life long friendship, maybe that’s why I resisted getting it.

Breaking Dawn: Park 2 - This was my first watch of the movie, unlike the other 4 I didn’t see this one in theatres, and wow is it a lot better than I expected, Bella is much more fun as a vampire which I do remember from the book, but they told this one well. and the other vampires were interesting.


  1. Love your projects, especially the Fractals. Can't wait to see more.

  2. Great progress, and nice to have you 'back' after your busy month!
    I think Breaking Dawn 2/the second half of the book was my favourite part of the series. It seems like all of a sudden, it leaves that overly romanc-y theme behind and goes more fantasy with all the different powers, I really enjoyed that and, honestly, I think the series would have profited from Bella turning sooner.
