First Page Finish of the Year

Meeting on the Turret Stairs pages 8 and 9.

That's a row finish. I'm now 79% done this project. I only have 3 partial pages left, about 3/4 of a page each. The end is in sight.  It's funny, because as I was stitching the last page, I was wondering why the knight had one slim grey leg and one fat beige leg.  It wasn't 'til I was done and had a photo of my work that I could see that the beige fat leg was actually part of the pillar of the turret.  Sometimes when I'm working on a HaED, the pattern doesn't make sense to me, but I just trust it and carry on.  It eventually makes sense.  

AND I will be continuing to work on this, as Wind Moon is currently at a friend's house, a talented, talented seamstress, who is making me a carrying case for my huge Quantum frame, so I can transport Wind Moon easily to Stitch-n-Bitch on Sundays. She's making me a case that I can sling over my shoulder.  I will, of course, brag  share with you all when I finally get it.

I haven't been stitching as much as I normally do, as I have discovered the wonderful world of Assassins Creed, and have been traveling through London, circa 1869 and killing blighters.  It's seriously digging into my stitching time, but I can't help it. I've never played video games before, other than Mahjong and Tetris.  It's pretty fun, but the graphics are fantastic. I often forget to do my mission and I just wander aimlessly through the game looking at the sights, which makes me the worst gamer ever. But the shiny will soon wear off and I will be back to my project soon enough.

I promise the stitching bug will bite again, but updates may be slower than usual.

I may just blaze through these next three pages, so hopefully the next update will be a project finish. That's the plan, anyway.
