Reading, cross stitching and movies ...
I guess you're stuck with my ramblings until I can be arsed writing reviews again. Sorry about that. :D
The good news is I have been reading. Little bit slow lately, but I have been reading. I just finished Kraken, and will be doing a co-review of it with Jodie from http://bookgazing.dreamwidth.org/ ... once we can stop dissecting all the things that are wrong with Merlin, that is. So there'll be a review of that. Stay tuned. ;)
So, some, or all of you might know that one of my more intermittent hobbies is cross stitching. I used to - mostly - make gifts for others, but lately I've turned to some old, unfinished WIPs of my own to try and get them finished.
I'm working a kind of half-assed rotation: http://crossstitch.about.com/od/glossa2/g/rotationdefinit.htm and I have these three projects on the go at the moment:
The one on the far left is my focus-piece, meaning I work on that one in between rounds of the others. If that makes sense -lol. At the moment I'm mainly working on them on Saturday nights when my friend and I have our TV/movie-watching dates, and on Sunday nights which is movie-night for me.
It's relaxing and makes me feel productive - lol.
Anyway, here's a list of the movies I've watched so far on Sunday nights:
A Single Man
Murder by Death
The Picture of Dorian Grey
The Last Station
The Ghost Writer
Romeo + Juliet
It's a nice way to end the weekend - watching a movie and doing a little stitching.
As for reading; right now I'm reading a Van Gogh biography that's the same size as my head, and Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell. Both very good books, but I need something to lighten the load a little bit - lol.
So. How's everyone? What's going on with you? :D
