I almost completely lost myself in iTunes and StumbleUpon last weekend. I had wonderful plans to start Chatelaine's Serengeti and make progress on Carriage House Sampling's Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. instead I listened to lots of music and found some really amazing ideas for home decorating, gardening, crafting and food. It was almost as relaxing as stitching and I really don't feel too bad about not meeting my weekend stitching goals.
Not that I totally flaked on the stitching, here is where Autumn was when I put it on the frame Friday evening:
The colors in the "before" photo are much closer to true. Despite my apparent indifference to this piece, I really am enjoying the stitching and the big bite mark is finally filled in.
Blue Ribbon Designs' Countdown to Christmas is going on the frame for this weekend. I am still working my way through Midsomer Murders, Queen's Another One Bites the Dust has started running through my head every time the music changes to a minor key that's a dead giveaway (pun intended) that someone is going to die, but I saw that Sherlock Season 2 will be on Masterpiece this Sunday, so some competition is in the future a development I am sure you are all grateful for.
