June WIPocalypse

Form some reason, I'm being extremely blog lazy at the moment - sorry about that! Thankfully, the same can't be said about my stitching, so I at least have something to show you this fine late WIPocalypse sign in.  The question this time is Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter? - I probably have to say I'm a bit more productive in winter, but not by much. It's different with knitting and crochet, I don't enjoy working with yarn and wool as much when it's hot, but for stitching, it doesn't make much of a difference.

Now to what I worked on - of course there is the obligatory column on Dark Force:


After my last SFS post, Felix and I were indeed sick for a few days, which led, despite all the uncomfort, at least to quite some extra-stitching time since we spent most of our waking hours on the sofa. So over one very lazy weekend, I managed to finish the cross stitch of page 5 of Cut Thru' Cottage, and last week I added the backstitching. Four more pages to go! :)


I also made good progress with my knitting - maybe if I can muster the motivation over the weekend, I can finish the main part of the jacket.


Also while being sick, I finished another one of those Lego-games on my PS Vita (Lego Ninjago Nindroids) - I can't help myself, but I really like those :)

For watching, when I was home sick alone for a day (and a bit before and after) I watched quite some more Castle (S2, E8-21). Sadly, amazon has taken the show off prime for now, so I'll have to wait a bit before I can continue this one.  Felix and I finished S1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (E11-22), and now we can't wait for Season 2! After finishing that, we started Downton Abbey (a friend of Felix had recommended it...which, of course, was way more of a reason to start than me trying to convince him for weeks!). We really liked it, and already finished the first three seasons, and now there's only one more in prime to watch - how did that happen so fast? Also, some more How I Met your Mother (I don't know what the last episodes I told you abot were but we're now at S5, E5). We also saw two movies: G-Force, from our latest haul of Disney movies - I mostly watched it for the guinea pigs, which were animated very cute, and it was fun, but nothing special otherwise. Then, Transformers Age of Extinction, since one of our collegues swears it's the best movie ever, but honestly we had troubles sitting through the whole thing...not cool, really not cool. What happend to all the characters?! Not to mention the story?

That's it for catching up right now, I'm back to producing pretty things to show you now :) Have fun!

    1. I tried to see the positive - still, I'd rather get that much done without being sick :)

  4. The cut thru cottage is looking great! I am stitching a couple of these designs and really need to do the backstitch as I go.
    Great progress on Dark Force too.

    1. Thanks! That's why I do it pagewise, I'm sure otherwise I'd finish all the cross stitch, then never pick it up again.

    1. Yep! I love how every week is just a little bit of progress on this one :)
      I like the Cut Thru ones, almost all of them, as well. Might have to do a few more after CTC.
