Yeah, I know, I'm a little late for posting once again...but thankfully, WIPocalypse isn't that strict with it's dates, and if I had posted on the 9th I would have had bearly anything to show of! Also, I like to post on fridays, with a whole glorious weekend of stitching ahead ^_^
So this month's topic is Who is your favourite person to stitch for, or do you prefer to keep your stitching yourself? That's actually quite an easy question for me - I hardly keep any of my stitching to myself, in fact, most of the projects I have done worked somewhere around Seeing a pattern/kit, thinking of a person it would be perfect for, giving it to them! It might be different now that I'll have a place of my own to actually hang stuff, but I guess I'll still continue enjoying giving stuff away, My favourite person to stitch for is, without doubt, my grandma - she's the one that got me into all kinds of crafts in the first place, and also one of the most appreciative people I know because she full well realizes how much time and effort it takes. My boyfriend is slowly catching up on that front because he sees my stiching in real time usually, but for him it has to be something 'useful' to actually make him happy (like that shirt I stitched for his birthday), so for now, grandma remains #1, even though I really enjoy stitching for everyone else as well, as long as they're happy about what they get.
In fact, the main project I'm working on right now is supposed to be a christmas present for my grandma (although I'm starting to doubt that it'll be done in time, so maybe...birthday present instead?), and it's Angel of Frost by Teresa Wentzler.
The main reason for not stitching this past weekend is that Felix and I went on a camping trip/outdoor party with a few friends. It was really nice, quite some time to sit in the grass or by the fire, relaxing, talking, and stitching! Of course I didn't take Angel of Frost with me (she's not really portable with more than sixty threaded needles and stuff), but instead, I took my new side projekt, Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Halloween Town Club.
Given that we were away for the weekend, watching was considerably slower as well - Felix wanted to watch Hancock with me, which I found to be a fairly decent movie, although it kinda raises more questions than it answers, and I got him to start a new show with me (we really should finish either Viking or Breaking Bad first, but they are bot a bit...heavy to watch in the evenings, I think. They are both awesome, but kinda pull my mood down.) and he chose Supernatural which he had seen the occasional episode on TV of and I didn't know anything about yet - as we've only started yesterday we've only seen two episodes so far, but those were really enjoyable and I think we shall see quite a bit more over the weekend. For myself, I chose something lighthearted to watch at the moment, and startet New Girl (which is even avaiable OV on prime, hooray!) and watched the first 15 episodes so far. I think as sitcomes go, it's a little more serious than HIMYM or BBT, but still fun, and I guess I'll go through the two seasons avaiable rather quickly ^_^
Now for the next week, I will mostly be at home, and with the weather turning more autmn-y every day I guess stitching will be done, a lot of stitching. I have to admit that I kinda hope that the fall weather will bringt back other people in the mood for stitching as well, it has been a little quiet in my blog-world over the summer and I miss seeing everyones beautiful progress! (I am, of course, happy for everyone having fun outside, don't take this to seriously please :x)
