Yesterday I finally finished the cross stitching part, and I have to admit that using that platinum linen was probably not the best idea - it's a little pale, I guess the colors would 'pop' more on a darker fabric. But maybe I can save some by using a dark color for backstitching.
Everything else stitching-wise later, for now just a little catch-up with movie-watching and stuff: Felix and I finally went to see Captain America: Return of the First Avenger (or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, as it's called in Germany for some reason I don't know) and quite liked it. Captain America was probably my least favorite of the Avengers-built-up movies (not counting the Hulk movies, I guess those were even pre-Disney?), and this one was much better in my opinion.
Then there was the usual show watching at home, some NCIS together, some Nanny and a few episodes of Dr Who (the new one) for me - it's amazing how I managed to miss that show so far. And then we watched a few movies on amazon prime that are about to be taken offline, so we better hurry, still a few more left we want to see - so far, there were Wrath of the Titans, which I liked quite a bit better than the first one...it still makes me cringe to see what they did with Greek mythology, but at least it's a decent action movie, and American Reuinion, this cast-reunion of the original American Pie movie, which was quite funny and good, just as we expected :)
