I'm back at work and I really don't have much to show for my week off stitching wise. I will make a better effort this week. I have begun another matt. This time all in black. My sister is flat hunting and wants me to make them for her. I chose black as it is the only colour you ever see her in. That and I wanted to see the effect. It is taking me longer though as black on black is difficult to stitch with.
I finally went through some of my craft supplies yesterday. Actually I had a bit of a spring clean and I'm still not done. I put all my magazines together, ready to sort through and take out the patterns I want. It's amazing how fast they grow. It is going to take me a couple of sessions to go through them. The first thing I am going to do though is to go through all the freebies. I very rarely stitch them and they have mounted up. I am going to have to be ruthless as there is no way I will manage to stitch them all. So I will be making a pile that will go to charity. The rest I will begin stitching and make into cards. They can always be put away to be given as birthday cards. I also don't believe how much fabric I have. Most of it is just 14count Aida but there is quite a lot. Will take me a while to go through all that. And with all my tidying I did the unthinkable. I forgot to watch Doctor Who. Actually I really just forgot the time. Not to worry I will watch it tonight on BBC3.
Stitch, to be honest I have no idea what kind of salad dressing it is. My mum uses it. I am the boring one in the family. I don't add salt or dressing to my salads. It's just that our fridge doesn't have much in it just now and I was struggling to think of something to add.
Timewarden, that's a good question and I pass it out to everybody. Which X-Man would you be? When I watched the cartoons Rogue was always my favourite. In the films though her power is a little boring. I think maybe Kitty. I am always walking into things so her power might come in useful. I wouldn't have to worry about collecting bruises. Your right Patrick Stewart is always worth seeing. Hale Berry does have more of a role. I heard that it was the only way she would agree to come back and do another film. I think you would have to watch the second film to watch this one. If you know what happens then it isn't essential but I think it helps. SFX is my favourite sci fi mag and yet I have never visited their website. Will have to make a point of doing that.
Oh! while I was away from blogs the Sci-Fi channel picked up Doctor Who! The otehr night I watched the regen episode! I'm hoping that they'll pick up the 10th doctor when it's available for distrubution.
