It's not quite a week since my last update, but tomorrow Felix and I will leave for some kind of weekend camping thingy (if the weather descides to play along, which we sincerely hope), so I'll have to show you my newst progress today :D
Last time I was afraid the motivation for Angel of Frost would leave me and that big chunk of wing ahead would considerably slow me down...today I'm here to tell you, that was not the case at all! In fact, the contrary was true: Just look at that marvelous, marvelous wing, I'm totally in love with it.
The bad news is, I ran out of needles again, so I ordered about 30 more...good news is, once this angel is finished I don't think I'll have to buy any more needles for at least a few years ^.~
There was actually something else as well that helped pull me through the difficult part on the wing - and that was a new start: Frosted Pumpin Stitchery's Halloween Town Club. I have been receiving the clues for this for three months now, the material was sitting ready in my stash, I just needed to start it, and so I did - for several reasons. One was, as I mentioned, the upcreeping frustration with my angel, the second that I'd really like to finish this in time for Halloween, and the third, well - as pathetic as it sounds, but I was really sad when I read that a stitcher whose blog I used to follow has passed away last week, and since she always had a few dozen WIPs on the go it just felt right to start something new in her honor as well.
Of course there are other things to tell again this week - in fact, there are a lot of those! I finished another game, which is not to spectacular (it was PlayStation Vita Pets which a friend had lend me, it's really cute and fun and everything, but clearly aimed a younger audience, so for me it was mostly a quick platinum), and, more importantly, I finished a book (I've become to lazy with reading when finishing a book actually becomes a big deal...). It was another one of the Zamonia novels by Walter Moers, The City of Dreaming Books, and I loved this one as well; it the story of Optimus Yarnspinner who ventures into the book-loving city of Bookholm in search of a mysterious author and gets lost in an adventure or two. I already got the sequel here right next to me, and I'll start as soon as I'm back home ^_^
As for watching, Felix and I continued with Breaking Bad, S2 E5-9. I still enjoy the story, but Walt is starting to be a serious pain in my neck, really, right now he's about the least likable protagonist I've ever met. I really hope he'll get his act together eventually. We also watched Chicken Run, one of thoe modelling clay movies like Wallace & Gromit, but witch chickens. Felix had never seen it before, and I had seen it once and liked it, and we both enjoyed it quite a bit. What we enjoyed even more was Meet Joe Black, we both didn't know a lot about the movie before we started it, but we were both pleasantly suprised.
I also finished watching Haven, Season 3, that is, Season 4 is not avaiable yet. I really enjoyed it, though it ends with a massive cliffhanger, maybe I should get Netflix because they have the next Season already - but for now, I'll need to decide on another show to watch next, let's see, there's so much to choose from...
