Riding the Wave - 5

Hello all!

I'm posting this tonight because I don't know what tomorrow will bring. I originally planned to visit Boyfriend Thursday, but am considering surprise pouncing him tomorrow without his knowledge. Hopefully the plan will work out and if it does, I won't be able to stitch tomorrow, hence the update.

I've been slaving over these horses. I really just want to get them done. Unfortunately, I've been busy running errands and trying to help my parents out to justify my freeloading so I've only been stitching an hour here and there every night. But, here goes!

Before:


After:


Just 1.5 horses left and then it's all easy background stuff! YESSSSSSS!

I don't know if you guys have noticed (since I know a lot of you view this in reader and don't see individual changes to blog layouts) but I made a minor change to mine. I have posted all my current, future, and stash (well, almost all) projects on the left side of my posts. It's really more for me to motivate me to stitch more so I can make that huge long list shorter and shorter by removing a picture for every finished project. And I hope Riding the Wave is the first to go.

Now for a funny story which you're totally welcome to completely skip. I was out running errands today and it being a very warm October day and me liking to get pretty because it makes me feel good, I put on a nice dress and some heels and went out to do my errands. Now, this dress is of the low-cut variety, and I have a rather large bosom. This doesn't bother me and I figure I might as well enjoy it while I'm still young since in about 5 years it will become rather inappropriate (or inapropro as my friends like to say) to display the girls in such a fashion. But, until then, freedom for the ladies.

Ahem.

Anyway, I wanted to pick up one more video game, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time since it would complete my trilogy and it's only $10. So I walked into GameStop. In a very low cut dress and heels. I was the only female there. I speak Geekinese. I felt like I walked into the scene of a sitcom.

And let me tell you, it felt damn good.

Hugs to all and happy stitching!

First, I 'do' see progress on those horses and I love watching your progress on them. Riding the Wave is just beautiful. Secondly, your GameStop story really had me laughing out loud Ewa. Every now and then the girls should indeed see the light of day!! Love it! :)

Have a lovely day with your boyfriend tomorrow. Great stitching on the lovely horses.

Your trip to the games shop makes you sound like Penny from 'The Big Bang Theory'.

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Horsies look great, Ewa! :D I'm sure your parents appreciate all the help you're giving them.

ROFL at your story... brings to mind the comic store in Big Bang Theory. ;)

I like what you've done to the sidebar, where is your Chatelaine freebie? ;)

There will be teenage boys dreaming about today for years to come!
And the staff room will have a pic from the CCTV saying "Yes, this is a genuine customer, work here and meet her!"

Riding the wave looks fantastic =)
I can clearly imagine how it was when you walked into that game shop ;-)
And I really like your new layout. You have so many beautiful projects in your stash =)

Thanks, Juel! I still have some projects to add but that's most of it, I think. Riding the Wave just got some more attention tonight. Hopefully more progress to post on it, soon!
