It's like I'm moving through quicksand today. Oh time-forward-change, my nemesis. *shakes fist*
I should be feeling 'right' again by...................July or so. lol
LOOKEE LOOKEE LOOKEE. I actually finished ANOTHER small stitchy! Never underestimate my ability to ignore what I should be doing (*ahem* sweater *ahem*) in order to dazzle myself with a small pretty. Distracted by teh shiny. I haz it bad.
(look at me breaking out those buttons again!!!! )
This is a freebie chart that was posted last week by Vinniey on Sometimes I Stitch. Super cute! I changed the colors to be more appropriate to the room I want to use it in but I think it looks great in any colors really. How about red birds and green for the lettering for a Xmas theme? Or all pink or all baby blue for a new baby theme?
I wanted to do a wire hanger for this, you know - just poke it through the corners, curly-q the ends, etc. But I couldn't find any black wire in my craft supplies. I KNOW IT'S IN THERE SOMEWHERE but it's probably easier to just buy some more at Michaels vs. tearing up a big huge closet full of crafty odds-n-ends. So for now it's just a small pillow but I WILL make it into a hanger at some point. (Thankfully, unlike the Joann's that is 45 minutes away, there is a Michaels in town that I can swing by next time I go to the supermarket or whatever.)
Is anybody else planning on watching the new Game of Thrones show on HBO next month?
I have to watch it because I pay dearly for my HBO subscription and figure I have to watch everything in order to get my money's worth. lolol (Thankfully I like most of their programming.)
I know nothing at all about the mythology behind this show though so I broke down and got the first book in the series to try it out. I read the first few chapters last night (hence why I didn't get to bed until 4am *sigh*) and it seems..............dense. (And much like something else I've read but can't quite put my finger on at the moment. Pillars of the Earth? The Mists of Avalon? I just started it though so I could be very very wrong.) So far I would say it's interesting but it's not 'wowing' me. I could just be a jaded SOB though. lolol (As much as I love sci-fi TV, I'm pretty picky about sci-fi books.) And I do all this with the full knowledge that reading the book first might totally ruin the show for me, like it did with the Sookie Stackhouse series. (Love those books, am just 'meh' on the show. The trashy lowbrow fun of the books just translates into ridiculous and over-the-top to me on screen. Clearly I'm in the minority though because the show is a hit. /shrug)
