Well, as some of you might know, I play World of Warcraft. I have been leveling my priest's profession: Archaeology. Now that's something that is quite boring! Most of the time you are just flying from place A to place B and again to place C and A :P So, while I was doing this, flying around, I was checking Facebook and newspapers etc. Until I realised something.. I should stitch while I am flying! Ha! So I needed a small project next to my laptop which I could pick up when I am having a boring moment on WoW (flying, waiting for an instance group etc.) I chose one of my CJC pieces: Snowman 10 by Lizzie Kate :) Yay! I am multitasking! I haven't stitched really much yet, but at least something.
Let's talk about that old UFO. When I had started stitching back in.. 2003/4 (I can't remember when that happened, I THINK it was in 2004, at least my oldest Cross Stitcher-magazine is from that year) I saw Dimensions' kits somewhere. I fell in love! I ordered one and started it right away. However.. uhm.. I think I chose a bit too big project! And challening too! I soon got tired of it as it doesn't only use cross stitches or even half stitches, but also half stitches on four strands, when 1 strand is colour A and 3 strands are colour B. So, I gave up and it's been an UFO for a looong time now. I pick it up every now and then and do few stitches but for some reason, I always put it away after some time. But now I am not gonna do that! I will keep it in the living room, somewhere where I can always see it and it screams my name! Maybe one day, I am able to finish it. And when I do, I will have a giveaway! :D Don't hold your breath though..
Here's how it looks at the moment. Oh and the kit is called "Southwest Mesa"
Also! I did some shopping few days ago.. From Dimensions again. I ordered two ornament kits which I plan to finish before Christmas. Wish me luck! I will post a pic of them when they arrive, they were mailed on Friday, whooo!!!
