So really, for reals. Not Dead. Just busy. I have a lovely little niece I promised to make a Christmas stocking, and lo and behold the Christmas season is upon us. You totally have to work super hard when you wait until late October to start. Hence the lack of blogging. As you can see I am approaching the realm of finishing, technically all of the major figures are done. I have to fill in the calendar (on Santa's right) and do the top and bottom, and back stitching. I am hoping for a delivery date of Dallas's B-day. That may be a little ambitious. But lets shoot for the stars here. If you see me today, no doubt this is what I will be working on. And for the info of any talented cross-stitchers out there, it still contains no mistakes! All colors and shapes exactly where they are supposed to be. Which is a complete first for me.

Last night I was perusing the channels, secretly hoping to be able to watch- like the whole- Halloween trilogy. Alas I wasn't that fortunate. But I did notice that one of my starz channels decided it was Christmas already and was playing "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" the Jim Carrey version. This was disappointing to me, I mean technically it was still Halloween, I get that as a whole, America loves to skip over Thanksgiving, but I mean come on, it was still October. Really. To be fair for months, like super long months, Starz has been playing a movie called "This Christmas" but as far as I could tell it was a newer release. I can say I am disappointed in the skip over. Starz better start playing some of the several excellent, Turkey Day themed movies pronto!
