Hi all!!! How were your hermitting weekends? We had 117 HERMITTERS this month. How exciting!!! Click on the link to check out each other's progress. I know I can't wait to get out there and see what you guys have done this weekend. :D
Now, about mine... I know a lot of you thought I'd have Sweet Pea finished this weekend. Heck, even I thought so but *hangs head in shame* it was not to be. Oh, I started out well enough. I got her wings finished on Friday night, by 10:30pm no less!! Then, I spent the next hour or so stretching and pinning Chinese Garden on foam core board. Now, she'll be ready to go as soon as I see that nice 65% off on Michael's custom frame sale.
Saturday saw me reworking Sweet Pea's arms and legs a little to smooth them out. Stitching began (in the midst of laundry etc), and I got her face and arms done. "Oooooh, this is going to work," I thought to myself. "I just have her hair and flower to do tonight, and then on to her legs and beading tomorrow, and she'll be all done!!!"
Well, I started and finished one color in her hair and flower! It took slightly longer than anticipated cos I was half watching two movies with hubby. Then, it was Diablo 3 vids on Youtube time. ;)
Sunday came along and I hermitted. Well and truly hermitted, with *gasp* no stitching done!! I made two dinners and prepped for the week, and we moved my orchids around in the balcony. But by 2pm I was on the couch browsing and messing around on the iPad. I can't remember the last time I sat around and did absolutely nothing for hours! :O
After dinner (beef stew, yum!!) we laid on the couch watching... you guessed it... MORE D3 vids of skills and what nots, on the TV via airplay. LOL!!!! It was awesome!
So, no happy dance yet for poor Sweet Pea...
OH!!! On the Serengeti Mandala front, I'll be printing out Part 1 today, but it'll have to wait as I'm still waiting for the kit and fabbie to get here. ;)
