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
