I didn't officially participate in IHSW this month, but I pretty much hermit and stitch every weekend, so I'll claim unofficial participation. Let's see, I got through the rest of this season's Dr. Who - I sort of figured out the "surprise" ending a few episodes ago, but it was still fun to watch; all of this season's Warehouse 13 - didn't see *that* ending coming; and, one full episode and the first part of a second of Whitechapel - this is a new to me series and one I really enjoy. Oh yeah, I also saw the first episode of this season's Primeval. I realize that my "this season" is not everyone's "this season" as these shows are mostly British imports and folks in Europe probably saw them years ago. Anyway,
I'm sure you all didn't click over here to read about my television habit which isn't as bad as it sound as I don't watch any during the week, so it all gets saved up for the weekends and I was terribly behind and I don't really watch as much as listen, except for Whitechapel, that one did require a bit more attention than most so here's what I accomplished:
First up is Tree of Stitches:
I finished up the algerian eyelets, french knots and stared the rice stitches. The picture is dark, but this is done on a piece of Silkweaver's opalescent Ocean with an unknown NeedleNecessities thread that reminds me of autumn leaves.
Next is Hawaiian Garden:
And last but not least, Birds of a Feather mystery:
Sort of busy weekend coming up. I'm waiting for cakes (one flourless chocolate and one carrot) to cool so that I can frost them - they are my contribution to tomorrow's Thanksgiving feast. We'll be in Virginia Beach at DSIL's sister's house. I think we're coming home Friday, but that's not decided just yet. I do need to figure out what stitching I"m going to take with me, probably Socks & Underwear, but that's not decided yet either.
Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating and happy weekend to everyone else.
