College of Magical Knowledge!!

I log into blogger, and WHOA! 99 followers! I have a fun little giveaway brewing in my little head for when/if/pleasepleaseplease I have a job. BUT, until then, I am learning to cook, stitching away, and generally enjoying myself.

I was stitching away over New Year's on College while at Boyfriend's. However, Boyfriend bought me Assassin's Creed for Christmas (along with a beautiful cashmere scarf, thank you Boyfriend!!) on xbox 360, which I don't have, but he does. Of course this means that my stitching suffered a bit while I obsessively completed objectives, searched for flags, and was an awesome assassin. But I'm very happy with the progress and anticipate a page finish upon my next Boyfriend visit.

Before:


After:


College of Magical Knowledge by James Christensen from Heaven and Earth Designs
Stitching on 25 count antique white Evenweave
1 thread over 1 with DMC

I also anticipate finishing a page of Mario in the next couple of days, after which I must finish Tiny Rose Garden Mandala. One of my friends crocheted me a blanket. A huge, beautiful, warm, amazing blanket. I have a Queen-sized bed and it's too big. So I think I will finish up Tiny Rose Garden Mandala, finish it as a throw pillow, make a nice Thank You card, and send it to her. The blanket is just amazing. I'll try to get a picture of it and put it up with the next post.

Until then, I hope 2012 is treating you all right. Happy Stitching!

Your HAED is looking so beautiful!

I can definitely relate to the game-playing...I bought my hubby the new Lord of the Rings Xbox game...and of course I spent time playing instead of stitching!!
