Getting a bit tired of pink

Image
I'm staring at 99% pink for the next 20 rows or so to the end of the page. The purple/gray was a nice break, but there are so many pinks!


I did however complete the 2,018 stitches for the HAED challenge in under a week. With blocks of color each row is taking me about 30 minutes as opposed to 60 on Alternative Reality.

Also picked up these from Herrschners. Oddly I didn't get a shipping notice, they just showed up at my door.



Less pink

Image
Not quite as much done this week. I blame the transition from pinks to purple and gray.


I'm a little late in posting because I like to have two full days of stitching (aka my weekend) if possible. My off days got switched and then I woke up late Thrursday and forgot about it. Woke up late today too, but have just enough time to write this up.

DWTS Season 27: Cast announcement

And we're once again gearing up for another season of rhinestones under the mirror ball.

Bobby Bones w/ Sharna. Radio show host. I've never heard of this guy, but he seems fun as he came out during the announcement. I have a feeling he'll be all limbs during the latin dances though.

DeMarcus Ware w/ Lindsay Arnold. Football player. So these guys can be hit or miss in dancing ability, but always fan favorites and make it near the end. We shall see how he stacks up against the others.

Milo Manheim w/ Witney Carson. Disney channel actor. I don't know about his dancing ability, but most Disney kids tend to be high energy which will work with the fast dances. But who knows how he'll take to the others.

Danielle Umstead w/ Artem Chigvintsev. Paraolympian. So, I'm pretty sure this is our first visually impaired contestant. Depending on how much of her sight she still has, it'll be interesting to see how Artem teaches her.

Joe “Grocery Store Joe” Amabile w/ Jenna J…

Pretty in Pink

So, back to the top of the rotation with Dragon Dancer and the extremely pink background. Didn't get quite as much done as I could've this week, but certainly ended up with more than I thought.


Also took advantage of the labor day sales a bit (not quite as on sale as I would've liked) and got these.


Halloween is coming

Image
So, it's still a bit early, but I made this in anticipation of one of my favorite holidays.


Now back to my cross stitch.

Page finish!

Image
2 weeks and page 6 is done, and I've officially gone through my 11 piece rotation.


Also picked this figurine up for my collection.


Now onto some crochet.

This is going quickly

Image
So I'm a little over halfway done with page 6 on Insanity.


It was helpful that the first 13 rows were the same color. Although now I've run into a snag. I'm missing 367 from my master set so I'll have to steal from another project until I can get a new one.
