College - 15

I ended up surprising Boyfriend last Wednesday. He had absolutely no idea I was coming. I pulled up in front of his house, crept out of my car and stood outside his bedroom window. Then I said, "PSST!" and scared the crap out of him. After he realized it was me, though, all was good. 

Saturday we were giant nerds and saw The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in concert. Meaning that the movie was displayed on a giant screen above a stage on which an orchestra and choir were located. The music track was removed from the movie that was playing and the orchestra played the music to the movie. It was amazing. AMAZING. They're doing one movie a year through 2013 for the 10th anniversary of each movie. They also had original props from the movie set up which was SO COOL. SEAN BEAN TOUCHED THAT SWORD!!! 

Now, for stitchy updated:

You can see the confetti awesomeness...

Also, I've recently been getting into card making.  As in, I'm totally excited to start doing it and am grabbing every sort of literature I can find on the subject, but I have yet to make a card. Tomorrow I'm stopping by a craft store to pick up some beginner things and start tinkering. We'll see what happens. But don't worry, I will never give up the stitch :)

Haircut Thursday. EEEEEEP!

Happy stitching!

Ewa, it's beautiful! Your needles are smoking... confetti is such a challenge. Great job!!

College is looking great!! I feel you on the confetti, but we all know it's worth it in the end.

Have fun with the card-making! I picked it up as a hobby about a year ago and am thoroughly addicted now. I find that it's nice to be able to have a finished product (or two or three) in an afternoon, whereas with stitching we have finishes every few years! LOL

Enjoy!

Your stitching is very nice! Also, can't wait to see what you come up with on the card making. That's something I've been wanting to do for a while.

LOTR sounded totally. I have a son and nephew that would have loved that - maybe me too :-)

Great progress on you HAED.

I'm on an iPad and I really think it has a mind of it's own. That first line in my last post should have said LOTR sounded totally awesome.

Wow, I envy you for having the possibility to visit a Lord of the Ring live-show =)
College looks amazing =)

Jan said...

You have done some amazing progress. How much fun would seeing LoTR be to an live orchestra!

College looks awesome and the confetti looks frightening! Kudos to you for battling through. LOTR with a live orchestra? - very cool!I wanna touch SEAN BEAN!! Good luck with the card making. I started scrapbooking which also included cardmaking and now I'm addicted to buying brads, ribbons, stamps everytime I pass a craft shop. But you know what it's fun I love it and I'm sure you will too.
Keep smiling.
