So March is over (where did the time go?), and I have some progress to show. And since Felix finally had his math exam yesterday (and after all his panic making, it went pretty well...no comment on that) I'm all stress-free now and have the time to a) stitch and b) write about it ^_^
During the last few weeks, I kind of neglected my beautiful, beautiful Peacock Tapestry, so I decided to give pretty bird some extra love and care last week, which worked out quite wonderfully - I actually finished another section of the border on sunday. I switched to the right border now instead of doing the lower one first, it just felt better to do it this way. So have another closeup shot, just because I can~
I also spent some more time with Lady & Tramp - this pattern is amazing, it's huge, but then everytime I work on it it seems to go just a lot faster than I thought it would, maybe because most of the time I can stitch a lot without ever changing the color, almost no confetti thus far - so I've done a good part of a branch and a roof, and started a tree (most of the green was done yesterday while lazyly enjoying 'no exam'-time with Felix). Now the plan is to first finish the tree, then the roof, then to slowly work my way down the house.
Last of, I also want to show you the progress I made on Tully since the last time you saw it - it's not much, but I just couldn't resist doing a few stitches here and there. There probably will be more progress on this in April as I'll spend two weekends and a few extra days at Felix' parents, and bookmarks are for on the road.
So that's it about stitching for the time being. We spend a lot of time in front of the TV yesterday, finishing up NCIS season 9 (evil big cliffhanger in the very last episode) and watching Total Recall - now that is a movie I enjoyed, although maybe, it takes itself too seriously. That's what I like about Marvel movies, they are always so full of jokes and puns and stuff. Anyways, I'm told Total Recall is actually a remake of a Schwarzenegger-movie from some 20 years ago, but I'm not a big fan of Arnie (Terminator was okay, but apart from that...) though I guess I can safely be content with having seen the new version ^_^
