Library Adventures pages 23-24 finished!

Don't get too excited by the title, this is the project that I'm working from the last page (24) to the first page. So that means there are two pages complete now, and both of them are partial pages so I kind of feel like I'm cheating.

Before:

After:

I have to honestly admit that this is a little more fun to stitch than College as it has a nice dose of both blocks of color and confetti, neither one being too much, whereas College is pretty much all confetti. I'm getting a little bit of blocks of color on the part I'm working on now but I think that's because there's sky in it.

H³ has chosen Middle Earf to be the next pattern I work on, so I'm going to pull that out as soon as I finish part 2 of AAN's Halloween Mystery SAL which ended a long, long time ago but I'm still working on because grad school stole my life. It's a fun little pattern though, so I want to finish it for Halloween this year.

The movie theater near our place here has a discounted day on Tuesdays so H³ and I decided to go see The Imitation Game, which I've been wanting to see since the teaser trailer came out months and months ago. I must say that I found it to be quite a good movie (and no, not just because of Benedict Cumberbatch. Stop laughing, Jo!) and H³ enjoyed it as well. I thought it was well written and well acted. I don't normally get emotionally pulled into a movie. Most movies are too short for that. Mini series work better for me in that regard, as do TV series, but I found myself extremely emotionally involved with the characters in this piece. Perhaps because it's based on a true story. Either way, I thought it was quite good.

Off I go now, happy stitching, everyone!

It's looking great! I love Spangler designs but would never commit to stitching one as I know how confetti-heavy they are. Congratulations on your second page finish- it doesn't matter how a page is, it's still another to cross off your list! I'll look forward to seeing Middle Earf make another appearance. :)
