HAP SAL sign in and a winner!

The end of March is already upon us (seriously, where have you GONE?!), and I still need to report for two of my SALs - one of them today, together with my weekly progress and the winner of last week's giveaway, and the other tomorrow, hopefully.

So today, I'm signing in for the HAP SAL by Stacey over at Crossed Stitches. I'm participating with my Dark Force project, and I kept up pace this month - one more column last week leaves me only one column short from another page finish!


The other piece I worked on this weekend was the Mystery Band sampler SAL, also hosted by Stacy. Somehow I managed to fall behind yet again, and had four bands to catch up on, but alas, I only managed four since I then realized I'm missing one of the colors. It should be included in my next shipping of the monthly thread club however, so I won't worry and just wait patiently for a while longer. In the top left corner, you can see my very first needle minder, the dragon Carla sent me, majesticaly reviewing my work!


Then of course, I need to announce the winner of my birthday giveaway last week - I put everyone's names in a randomizer and up first came...D1-D2! Congratulations! Please come forward by dropping me an email at LeonoreWintererATgmailDOTcom so we can discuss what you want :)

Now in other news, there was some watching that happend of course, more Supernatural (S4, E21+22 and S5, E1-5) and Big Bang Theory (S6, E21-24 and S7, E1-6). We also saw the Matrix, another part of Felix attempts to educate me in movies. I liked it, and I know I just gained a whole bunch of new references to get hehe.

I also did some reading and finished Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, a book a friend had given me to read. I really liked it, it started out a bit slow but became great and exciting after the first hundred pages or so. It's set in a world where humans and dragons have learned to live piecefully together - dragons can even assume a human form and live among them, but there are still a lot of prejudices and mutual dislike going on. And, who would have guessed, our heroine Seraphina is half dragon, half human, a fact she is very keen to hide, while working as a musician at the royal court. There's a sequel now, and I hope said friend will give it to me as well once she's finished :D

    2. It's nice isn't it? Such a luxury really but it makes life so much easier and lets you easily whip up a little something for someone even in the weekend :)

  5. Great stitching. I like the band sampler, I'm a big fan of band samplers.
    I read Seraphina last year and I enjoyed it. Haven't seen the sequel yet though.

    1. Thanks Jo. I never really 'got' band samplers before I started this one, but there might be more in the future now, I really like working on it.

      I think the sequel is pretty new, the German version hasn't been released yet and the english one only a short time ago, something like that
