I am going to try to post pictures tonight. Can I tell you, I hate the computer? I am in the midst of pricing them out, even if it's just to get a laptop to tide me over til I can afford better. I'm this close to making a decision because I hate my desktop so much. I'm leaning towards a Bestbuy purchase because they will set the computer up for you and I'm not that talented. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for bearing with me through this time.
I started CItA this week. I chose a jewel-tone colorway, and it looks so luscious right now. I can't wait to see it progress, even though that large amount of blank space on the fabric is daunting right now. I am using DMC metallic, the old kind on the spool, and that is a bit annoying to work with, but I'm making it happen.
I also managed to finish the Photobooth design into a no-sew. I started it last weekend, since Left-brain went racing with his friend. I came home Friday night, armed with new DVDs and went to work. I watched the first Sex and the City movie, which I really liked. I was not a fan of the show when it first came out, but I imagine that was because it came out when I was not quite 22, and I didn't see anything in the 30-something characters that related to my life. Funny how 12 years later, it meant more to me. And the movie did not disappoint; I knew how Carrie felt when Big left her, how it seemed easier to just sleep and ignore the world. And I was so impressed at how Kirsten Davis handled the moment when, after the first wedding, they confronted Big. It felt so particularly "real" to me. It was a good movie to finish and stitch by.
I also saw "Remember Me," with Robert Pattinson. I've thought about it all week, and I just can't figure out if I liked the movie or not. There was a wonderful performance by the girl who played his little sister, but I found Pattinson's Tyler to be a jerk. But I can understand why Ally liked him; for most of us, your early 20s are for dating the jerky boys, so that you get trained to appreciate the good-uns. And the ending was heart-breaking; I won't share it, but it was hard. It reminded me of how innocent we were back then, how lucky.
I also worked on my "Brave Hearts." I have run out of the Cocoa Bean CC floss that the words are stitched with, but will wait til our stitching GTG next week to get more. I love this chart. I even found the house more bearable to stitch, since I was using gorgeous Wavy Navy floss for it. It felt kinda wierd to step away from it, half-completed, but I can't wait to finish it.
I will try to post some pictures tonight. I am not working out this evening, and I don't have any errors to run, so be on the lookout!
