And I'm back once more - yesterday night we spent at Felix' uncle's house who celebrated his 60th birthday, and then I good deal of today was spent sleeping, but guess/hope everything will be back to normal now, expect for exams and learning and stuff and okay maybe I will be busy for a while longer.
Anyways, I'm here to tell you about my stitching success, and that's what I'll do! So for once, I started with the Game of Thrones bookmarks which black-lupin published via dA and which I want to make into kind of a 'on the road' project because the patterns are rather small and don't use too much different colours each. Frist up for me is Tully, and while I was at Oldenburg, in breaks and on the train ride there and back again, I got a bit done, at least the words and their background which is about 1080 stitches and not too shabby at all for such a busy week.
When I got home, a little suprise parcel was waiting for me - I had all but given up hope that they would arrive in time, but the two little RTO-kits I ordered for my grandma's birthday on friday actually got here before I did. They are two guinea pigs (which my grandma loves ever since I had three of the little critters as a kid) out of a series of four, and I also want to make the remaining two for her eventually.
Both are pretty small, easy to read and fun to make kits, and a little stitching on friday evening, a few hours on saturday morning and some more work today, a total of 761 stitches, already saw the first one finished - tomorrow I'll try to find four matching frames so I can finish this one up, and I'm just about to start the second one.
I was thinking about trying something like a progress video with this one, but this would have been awefully short, so here's a progress gif instead, I hope it gets displayed here correctly. He's called 'Cavy with a Carrot' by the way.
Oh, and of course some stuff was watched again - because we now have amazon Prime Instant Video, we got to start Navy CIS season 9, and we're also taking turns picking movies - my choice for now was Despicable Me (great animation and I regret not having watched it before, although I of course already knew the minions) and Felix' was Kill Bill Vol. 1 (bloody mess, but I had already watched it once and knew what to expect - and it's still quite awesome, I'm looking forward to Vol. 2 which I don't know yet).
