In an attempt to updates this blog a bit more frequently, I tried to get a lot of stitching in last weekend so I could have something to show, and here we go :) This is the time of the month were I would normaly write my SFS update, but since I'm no longer part of that, I won't - still feels a bit strange, but honestly, I went a bit wild with buying stash now that I'm free so I'm quite happy I don't have to confess everything ;) I'll probably show most of the things in later posts, though.
So, progress - was stitches busyly away on Dark Force, and finally finished the last column of the first row. 24.000 stitches, a bit more than 1/6th of the whole design, is done. I now reached my goal for the year on this, so I'm putting it away for a bit, but I'm sure I'll get back into it sooner rather than later to see if the remainder turns out just as pretty as this first row :)
The rest of the weekend I spent working on My Day Off, filling in that bit of wall on the very left, then doing the outlines for the sandy part underneath, which I now need to fill in as well :)
I'm now planning to work more on My Day Off untill I get tired of the colour blocks, then switch to one of my other projects for a while :)
On friday night, Felix and I watched Jupiter Ascending. We've hear plenty of bad things bout this movie, but it's really not THAT bad....but it isn't really good either, and the strange bit is that I can't say why. There are plenty of stunning visualy, the plot is interesting and original and seems to have so much potential, but still...we didn't really get into it. Something was off, can't put my finger on it.
We also watched a bit more of Case Closed (E28-32), and I watched This is me, a short amazon prime-produced docu on trans lifestyle and mosty problems - a 'raising awareness' kind of thing. Still pretty interesting :)
