IHSW - June

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  In between the dull ordinary things that take up too much time, I got in some stitching and a little extra fun.

Stitching wise I finished the blue on the Retro Cat down to the top of the chair.  I managed to rein in my excitement and only do 2 rows on top and two on the arm.  Have to pace myself with that bright orange, Ha.

Also, I have a finish to report!  It’s another Dork Stitch sprite, the Black Widow from the Avengers.

Sweet right?!  Another great pattern.  I may have to see that movie yet. J  I did recently get a chance to see The Hunger Games and will have to start on those sprites soon.

The Black Widow had to be done in honor of my other weekend activity.  Denver’s first (judging from the turnout I’d say annual) Comic Con!!  It was held downtown at the convention center so they were really going all out.  The Dealer’s Room was fun to walk around in.  I took a picture of this Tardis that was on display and of Colin Ferguson (Eureka) signing autographs.  I love that show and he’s the reason why. J

The only thing the coming week seems to be promising is heat. Joy. Just have to keep the fan on and my trusty water bottle close at hand.

Happy stitching World.

Short, sweet and a little late

Don’t you just love good intentions?  They’re as cute as days of the week and as slippery.  I got a case of start-itis after my last WIPocalypse post, and while trying to fight that off (except for Fragile) didn’t work on much of anything.  Certainly not every day.  I did get the Ball room picture out and managed to get it back to, and a tiny bit beyond where it was before.

So my goal for June is to just keep stitching. J Hope you all have a great month with your WIPocalypse projects.

Happy stitching World

June: New Start, New Sprite

It’s June so it must be time to start something new right?  Too Late, I’m 11 whole stitches in so there’s no going back now.  Succumbing at long last to the recent HAED sale, I bought a storykeep pattern called Fragile by Kirstin Mills.  The cutest little pink dragon, though it won’t be quite as little because mine is being done on 16 count instead of 25.  I’ll do my best to make sure it takes me awhile but I think it will be fun.

I finished another sprite!  Truth be told I actually started this awhile back but finally decided to stop messing around and get it done.  It’s William Hartnell, or to be more precise, the First Doctor.  I don’t quite remember where we found the pattern, sorry.  I’ll update that later.  But the inspiration for the patterns is here and worth a look.

That’s all for now.  More on Monday (or Tuesday) when it’s WIPocalypse update time.

Happy stitching World.
