TV Marathon Stitching

I don't watch a lot of "normal" television channels, or at least what passes as normal here in the US (I've never seen an episode of Cheers, Friends or Seinfeld, I lean towards BBC America, Science, and National Geographic with a little ESPN thrown in for balance (of course I'm more likely to watch rugby or soccer than football or baseball).  I also don't have a lot of time to watch television during the week, so I am thankful that I have a DVR on our satellite service.  I hermitted this weekend, I didn't join the official "Hermit and stitch weekend" but it felt good to not worry about too much of anything but stitching and getting some of the stuff off the DVR.

I got a bit more done on Santa's beard while watching an episode of "Mysteries of the Dead":

I am still hating the Wisper thread, but not too much more left to stitch with it.

And after three episodes of Mysteries of Deep Space (I think that was the name), three quarters of a college football game WAR EAGLE!!!!, three Inspector Lewis and two Torchwood I had this:

Part 1 of Hawaiian is done except for the bicones and cubes.  

I still have 19 episodes of Dr. Who and three of Bedlam left on the DVR along with an entire season of Warehouse 13 and several episodes of The Hour so I am still set for some serious stitching time.

I actually didn't do any stitching this weekend on BoaF but I do almost have a tree from the previous weekend's stitching:

Beautiful projects!! I love that BOAF mystery. I need to check to see if Bedlam's season 2 is coming any time soon. We have gotten into watching the History Channel shows lately--American Pickers, This Old House, etc.
