so what have I been up to?
this was really not a stitchful weekend, even if I promised I would do as much as I could and finish part one of Atelier Perdu‘s Patches of Life.. I didn’t..
this makes my Stitching Olympics as miserable as the real ones by Italian athletes.. 😀 I guess it fits this year’s mojo.. 😀
the sampler is coming out pretty well, even if much more slowly than I wish.. and I got part two in todays’ mail!! looks superb!! 😀
as for the rest, I’ve been working on a little Mill Hill ornament (I want to get all the 2012 Autumn Harvest series done by October.. so I’ll take a few perforated paper detours from my SALs to stitch these lovely little beaded to death ornaments :D)
my Longaberger basket has been really the best stitching companion these days.. I finally have what I’ve been looking for (stitchingwise speaking :)) for years.. something that really works for organizing things, and doesn’t’ come in crazy flashing highlighted colours.. 😀
as for Madame, we agreed on going to the Villa the day after tomorrow (wednesday is Ferragosto, national holiday in Italy) – I checked, the Villa IS actually opened 😀
in the morning, possibly tomorrow, we’ll have a lovely bicycle ride, so that I can show her (read you) where I live.. and if I manage to convince her to stay a few more days I might take her nowhere less then The Sinking City.. 😀

so if I haven’t been stitching much, what did I do? I didn’t feel too good, so I layed in bed and watched movies, A LOT of movies.. and really good ones too! 😀
this is my way of reviewing things, saying they’re good.. nothing else. it’s fast, it saves time and most of all it’s SPOILER FREE!! 😀
so here is a list of really good things you might like.. have fun people! and don’t worry, tomorrow’s morning lights will bring decent pictures.. 😀
– Super 8 directed by the amazing J.J. Abrams (2011)
– 21 Jump Street by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (2012)
– The Pirates! Band of Misfits by Peter Lord and Jeff Newitt (2012)
I actually liked them so much I watched them twice, all of them! 😀
last but not least.. goodbye Mr. Rambaldi, thank you for being a great Italian dreamer, who made the world dream together with him.. thank you.
