Hello my lovelies! It's been a while since I updated, but I've had a busy time with friends visiting, Felix' brother crashing his car (don't worry, he's okay - just the car isn't) and starting work with a four day trip to Aachen. I had planned on lots of catching up in reading, blogging and other to-dos this weekend, but somehow, that didn't happen - instead, I went to test out the gym with friends yesterday, Felix and I visited another pair of friends for food and a movie (Serial (Bad) Weddings - don't watch it if your easyly offended by stereotypes, but it's SO funny otherwise!) and spent the day stitching and talking with two coworkers today, while Felix and one of the coworker's husband made us food. So, no to-does were crossed off, and I feel SO good about it! Still, I want to get a bit of what I did out there, so here's the first Gifted Gorgeousness checkin of the year.
I've been working on my new year start (which Jo correctly guesses is a pattern by Joan Eliott - and soon you'll see which one, too!) and I had a hard time putting it down. I finally put it down here, because I needed to focus on other stuff, but I can't wait to work on it a bit more!
That 'other stuff' was, for the moment, mostly the Hobbit Meal Plan. After finishing the 'tea' of 'Afternoon tea' I also did 'Dinner' with what is my favourite colour so far - I've taken this picture with my phone, so it's maybe not as clean as usual, but I found my phone is much better at picking up colours than my big girl camera!
And lastly, when I wen't on that work trip, I was *so* close to start another new trip-friendly project, but then remembered I still had those Game of Throne bookmarks on the go, which I hadn't touched in over a year, so I decided to revive them. I've worked on Arryn, finishing the moon and filling up the blue above and below it, but I've also noticed I never really finished Tully (still needs four rows of blue and a tiny patch of red where I ran out of thread) so I'll probably get both of these done on the next trip I take.
I've also played around with some crochet and knitting projects, but I don't really have to show anything yet. I probably should get my list of what needs to be done when updated, and I will, but for the moment I kind of enjoy that limbo of having everything finished I wanted to finish last year, and not being too concious of the next looming deadlines, so that's it for today!
