It has been one eye opening experience over the past few days. 1) Never ever bring more food to a party, even if it is your own. Apparently, it is super rude and frowned upon. 2) I am starting to utterly hate celebrate anything for any reason. 3) Even though I PROVED that I had NO flipping idea I was still yelled at and told that I will never be allowed to cook for family functions again. Fine by me. If you don't want to inform me of the freaking menu and make it MY fault? Fine. I refuse to bring or take food from any parties from now on. I never want to be treated that way again. Did I mention it was our party (hubby and I)? Well screw that noise. Next year it will just be go to restaurant, eat food, hug/kiss then leave. That was beyond humiliating.

As for the crafts, I have some things complete. Other things are still slowly being worked on. It's been difficult with a screwed up hand. I have more doc appoints than I have days in the week. At this rate I might as well camp out by the doc offices. Just been one bad thing after another. Need the third thing to hit so that will go away, and I can look forward to happier times.

Reading: Wheel of Time book #3 Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan (20% complete)
Playing: Assassin's Creed : Unity (where the controls are super screwy, Arno jumps about like Doug when he "sees" a squirrel) Side note Doug from Up.
Working one: Pegasus and Butterflies as well as getting the Dark Angel by Reaper minis ready for glueing
The Pegasus and Butterflies are moving right along!

Dimension Embroidery Kit cira 1982 by Linda Powell
DMC floss is used, the cloth is a cream colored linen

Started work on he Pegasus's tail. The butterflies are "done" for now and will remain looking as they do now until I am completely done with the Pegasus. I am slowly, ever so slowly working on this. Having a torn ligament is no longer fun it's making all my crafts super hard to do. So it's slow and steady. Once the Pegasus is complete I will have to figure out what to out line it in. I am defiantly not going to use brown as it suggests in the instructions. Don't get me wrong, brown is an amazing color. Just not sure I like it outlining this piece.

The MRI is done, now to wait until next Monday to see what the Dr wants to do from there. I am happy that it is done, and I won't have to do that again ever. To finally get answers and less pain will be an awesome trade off. Granted they believe it's a torn ligament, which one and how bad we will know on Monday (23rd of March). I have a bad feeling I am going to have surgery. I don't like surgery, I actually hate it, but it may improve things for me. So there is that. I had the MRI yesterday, and by doctor's orders, I am not allowed to do any thing for 48 hours. One day down one more to go. But I am going crazier in the meantime. I can't clean up my place, I can't help with the fixing of our vehicles, playing a game? Yeah that doesn't work either. So far I can sit, watch tv and read. Now I have been going through my to read pile pretty quick. Almost done with book 3 of the Wheel of Time series. Reading is great and all but sitting there seeing the projects just sit gathering dust. I want to just pick them up, say "screw it" and just go to town but my hand reminds me pretty quickly that won't fly. Before all this I almost got the butterflies on Pegasus and Butterflies complete. I'd like to finish it before I start on the Pegasus it's self.

I have been looking into a stitching stand. A friend on DA told me of this awesome floor stand made for stitching. It was out of my price range, and sadly still is. But since my Dad is a very good listener I told him about the stands I found that are cheap but are horrible. I think he and my bro might put their heads together and either make one or find one on their many get togethers. I am really wanting to find one that I can use comfortably that will not take up every inch of free space I have atm. I found one that folded up it was in my price range but it was out of stock. UGH! Just my luck. 

I even have the Dark Maiden part way finished. I just don't have the hand strength to put it together and finish up the details. I thought about asking my hubby for help but he does so much since I am side lined, it seems like a little too much to ask. So I asked my Bro to help me out (he will when he has the time, he is always busy). I have the pins, the mini drill and some green to fill in spots so that the Dark Maiden can sit without falling over or come apart. I can not wait to finish her. I even bought the sister mini of the Dark Maiden called Dark Maiden, Razig. She looks amazing! Once I finish painting Razig, I may have to make a custom stand for her since it's just a plain black square. Not sure how to do that but I am sure I can think of something. The Dark Maiden has an amazing base, thought about making it a little bigger to help with stabilizing it since it's so top heavy. Not sure if she will be ready for the Scale Fest though. :cries: I want her to be, but with all the issues I have been having lately with my hand. It's looking like I may have to bow out this year. I wanted to "defend" my 1st place in fantasy scale of 25mm. Lord Soth would be please. :plotting:

Mood: :grump: :shakefist:
Playing: Nothing b/c I can't hold a controller or press keys on the keyboard due to pain
Reading: Wheel of Time Series Book #3 Dragon Reborn by Robert Jordan (52% complete)
Eating/Drinking: PB&J sammich with a nice cool glass of milk
Working on: Pegasus and Butterflies (in very very short spurts) and Dark Maiden (one color at a time also in very short bursts)

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.

How else would I get to see the TW you will stitch some day :) and YW! Sanzo was always a fav of mine :) BTW where did you find that dragon cross stitch you just finished? Most of the craft stores in my area have wolves, cats, prayers, people but no fantasy anything any more. It's sad times.
