UFO Happy Dance!
Yesterday was UFO day which lead to another finish. Yep, the castle which has sat untouched for months is finally finished. I classed it as a UFO because I basically had to force myself to pick it up. It's amazing how much I have went off this chart. I'm sure I will grow to like it again but for the moment it will be stored away now that it is finished. Glad I did finish it though. It has been gnawing away at me at the back of my head. That is the last of my UFO's which are so close to finishing. I haven't decided what I am going to do next week. But whatever I chose it will take more than one UFO day to finish.
I can't remember where I saw mention of the bloggies but I know I have seen them mentioned a few times. Not sure how people get nominated. As for the craft ones. I remember Not Martha being advertised on a group. I think people liked it because she had instructions on how to make different things. It's not one I would go back to again and again. I prefer visiting everyone's cross stitch blogs. They feel friendlier. I remember reading that Wil Wheaton won a number of bloggies for his site. There seem to be a lot of blogs in the style of Heat Magazine. Lots of celebrity photo's and making fun of what they are wearing.
My inner geek is calling out for this. I was a huge fan of Seaquest. A talking dolphin and a teen idol what more could a girl ask for! I didn't care that even the sci fi fans in my family didn't like it. And now it is out on DVD. But only region one (sob!). I would have broken my promise to cut down on DVD spending for this one. I will just have to keep a look out and hope that it will eventually be released in the UK.
Plans for today. I am still going to work on Bugs. Tomorrow I will try to finish the Christmas Elf. I promise. Basically I am not working on Friday which means it won't matter if I stay up to finish her (which I no doubt will as I won't be able to put her down until I do).
I'm sure the dvds will come our way, like Sliders did !
UK is the land of the sci fi... ;)
Congratulations on finishing "The Castle" !!!! If you don't like it anymore, you can send it my way, I'm sure I'll find a place for it ;)
I think I abandonned all hopes of stitching it myself, though.
Now you can finish the elf?
The Castle looks fantastic, I have this in my to do pile for my Aunt, I bought some silkweaver fabric called Winter Breeze for it. Hoping to start it soon.
I don't know Seaquest, shame on me...
But we do spend much on DVDs, no series, but movies... all sorts!
I have 2 Seaquest novels, one is the pilot, which I had missed at the time, so it was good to read, and the other one is a new adventure. I think I still have them somewhere...
I remember Seaquest. Boy that brings back a lot of memories. :)
