As I already mentioned, last weekend was the very first IHSW (International Hermit and Stitch Weekend) I wanted to participate in, and as I also mentioned, I wasn't even home over the weekend, which made things quite a bit more complicated. You have to know that Felix' family - while all of them are very nice people - is also pretty demanding in terms of time, so hermiting was quite...difficult. Some stitching was done, however - as promised, I started on the 'Toby the Fox' bookmark from DMCs Woodland Folk series, and I got quite a bit done already.
As I already mentioned, the weekend was really busy and crazy, though I enjoyed spending time with with Felix' sister Evelyn and his brother Max and, of course, my dear friends Jule and Frank. But I'm still a little bummed that I couldn't join the IHSW hangout with Carla and Nancy and Krystal and everyone else. I had plans for this weekend, plans, I tell you! Sadly, life usually has other plans whenever I try to make some of my own, but I guess that's just like it has to be.
On a bright note, we finally got around to watch Pacific Rim which we wanted to do ever since we saw the Honest Trailer. To be fair (the following is not meant to contain any spoilers, but if you are very sensitive to stuff like that you might want to skip the rest of the post), the movie is not half bad, though I DO smell a lot of wasted potential here (like - what exactly IS on the other side of the Breach? And why are the governments so adamant about shuting the Jaeger programm down?). But as far as giant robot movies go (okay, I only watched Transformers so far, and those are minuscule compared to the Jaegers) it was pretty good. Made me almost forget my stitching while watching - almost! And that's where I'll be heading now. Back to stitching. See you guys around!
