Owls!

After a long struggle with getting all those eyes properly done and sewed on and internal cursing about way too many loose ends, I finally got all cleaned up and crocheted together, which marks a huge progress on my owl tote. I'm rather pleased with how all those little guys turned out ^_^


I did most of this while watching Sherlock with Felix. That was kind of a blind flight - I knew the show was supposed to be great and somewhat roughly based on Arthur Conan Doyle, but I did NOT know it had been transfered to a modern setting, neither could I have known how awesome it really was. We watched the entire season one on a particulary lazy saturday, than season two spread over the following week. Now I can't wait to see how the will continue this, but season three is not on amazon prime yet, boo for that.

I also continued watching Doctor Who, episodes 8-13 of season one and then the first episode of season two. I'm havon some problems adjusting to the new face of the Doctor, which is strange really, because when I first started watching I had my problems with Eccleston as well, because you know, I had seen pictures of Doctor Who before and that was just not him. But then I grew kinda fond of him and now he's gone, but I guess the same thing will happen to the new one (the growing fond part, I already know that he will be gone eventually as well). I hope I can watch season two and possible three before they take it down form amazon prime, but I still firmly believe that they will renew the license eventually, even Haven has returned by now. 

I also finished season one of The Nanny, not much to say to that, oh, and Felix and I went to see X-Men - Days of Future Past in the cinema last wednesday. I love that movie, even the title, it's so great and as usual the German version just can't capture this depth (it's calles Future is Past or something like that, I didn't even bother remembering I guess). It was great, X-Men are my Marvel heroes favourite, and after that movie I'm really, really curious in what direction the franchise will be headed. I think they could safely end this iteration after that one, but it doesn't look like they will now.

Oh, almost forgot (well, not really, I got the pictures ready and everything, I just needed a good transition), I wanted to show you something else. Felix and I went to a kind of yard sale last week (relatives of my gradnmother's friend died and the daugter sold off everything noone of the family could use themselves) to try and get some things for our soon-to-be apartment. We found awesome stuff, like an entire set of silver plated cutlery for only 10€ (~$15), and I even managed to grab some crafting stuff - an great old basket for €2 to store crochet/knitting projects together with all the yarn, and some old frames, €5 for the lot of them - they look so nice and a little old, I can just imagine the kind of little projects to fit into them ^_^

    I pick up frames all the time just in case...I'm pretty sure you think the same way because you never know when you will need to frame something :D
