October WIPocalypse

So, one day late for my usual post, or three days for WIPocalypse itself, I'm finally here and typing what needs to be typed :D

I've been away for a few days again this week, so stiching has been a bit slow once more, but I still managed to make a good bit of progress - in fact, the reason for me cheating by one day was an impending page finish; check it out:

The remainder of the cloak was done really fast, and to my suprise, so where the trees - I don't really know what makes them stitch up so fast, but they did, and I could selebrate my third page finish yesterday. The fourth and last page is covered in stitches almost completely, but most of it doesn't look too difficult (more cloak, more trees), so let's see how fast this will go from now on - usually I'd say three or four weeks tops, but I have my move coming up on Wednesday, so I really don't know how much stitching time I will have left after that, with moving stuff in and around an buying furniture and everything.


I also made some teeny-tiny progress on Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's Haloween Town, so there is now Frankenstein's Monster and also a bit of the tree next to him - I still enjoy stitching this, despite the lack of time, and I'm looking forward to getting it finished for next year's Halloween.

Which brings me to this month's WIPocalpyse question: Are you a Halloween or Christmas stitcher? I think my current cast of WIPs already shows that I do both, but neither is something I identify with: In fact, those are the first Halloween/Christmas themed designs I've ever sone. I'm sure I will do more in the future; there are really pretty, awesome and/or cute designs for either occasion, but I still love my non-seasonal designs as well.

So, what happend appart from stitching...as I already mentioned, we're still busy preparing our move, but most pressing issues are dealt with now so we can relax a little and actually look forward to it. And as usual, relaxing for us means a lot of watching stuff - this week, we watched Catching Fire as soon as is showed up on amazon prime (I loved the books and I love Jennifer Lawrence, plus the movies are really well made, so lots of stars for this one), then we saw Guardian of the Galaxy at the cinema (which was great, and funny, and GROOT!, can't decide if I like this one or the Avengers more). We also finished Season 2 of Breaking Bad (E12+13). and I'm starting to like it more again, I think, even though that is quite tough stuff happening there - same goes for Vikings which we finally continued, S2, E3-7, this is really taking up pace and getting awesome by the minute. There also was another episode of The Nanny in there, and yesterday Felix decided I had to watch The Truman Show as I'd never seen it before, and I liked it, it's both funny and makes one think about some things in our society...

I even got some gaming done, finished Crazy Market, one of those silly little time management games, on my PS Vita, and then also Arcania; which is a full grow RPG and the official fourth part of my beloved Gothic-series, but it's not made by the same guys and it really shows. I played it for the second time, this time together with the AddOn that I didn't know yet, and while there are still some nostalgia-moments, it's not a great game on it's own, so I'm not sad it's over. I shall play Risen sometime soon, which is made by the guys rom Gothic, and, while it doesn't continue the story, it continues the spirit ^_^

Okay, that's enough for one post I guess, I'm off to work and stitch and stuff again; see you!

    1. Full time jobs are not until January or more likely February, so at least I wont have that and the move to deal with at the same time - I hope that will leave me with some stitching time! :D

  4. You don't have much stitching to go. Moving isn't that much fun, well I dislike packing everything up, but strangely enough I don't mind unpacking at all. That's the fun part. Oh, I don't like the physical labor of moving all the boxes to where they need to go either. Still...have fun with you move! May the force of adrenaline from excitement consume you haha.
