I can't believe we have said goodbye to our 9th IHSW weekend of 2012. Boy, oh boy, has this year flown by or what?
How were your weekends? Did you guys get some some stitching in amidst your busy schedules? Did you get to hermit or did the male help provide too much distraction? ;)
I got quite a bit of stitching done this weekend, although, I spent all of Friday night reading and finishing Nalini Singh's latest book, Archangel's Storm. I simply could not put it down! I love when books do that to me. :D
I started Saturday by working on the finishing (tutorial can be found HERE) for Gardenia and told hubby that my IHSW is not heading towards a good start since it was already 3pm and I haven't done a single stitch. He said that since Gardenia was a cross stitch, that counted. Smart man! :D
We decided to go tone on tone with her and found a fabric that was the same color as her dress for the backing. Some brown ribbon to accent the green and match her hair and ta-dah!!
Jo wanted to see a picture of the pixies that are currently finished together, so I took a pic of them on the closet walls. Ivy, Sweet Pea, and Fern were all stitched on PTP's Ancient, and when everything is done, they'll be split up for diversity. You can see the actual color of Chrysalis' green in this picture.
Now, on to what I did this weekend.
I was hoping to get her almost done after the weekend, since Torchlight 2 is due out this coming Thursday, but that's going to be very unlikely. On this subject, I haven't decided what character to play yet, but it's between the Berserker and the Embermage.
If I go the route of the berserker, and even though there is a female version of the class, I'm thinking of playing a male version and picking the Papillon as his pet. Maybe I'll name it "Fifi." What do you guys think? I wonder if someone would mod pet accessories for the game. A studded collar for Fifi would sure be nice...
