I was thinking about this year’s advent and realised I could use it as an excuse to blog more, and also implement my poor TAC efforts this year, so I came up with an idea I hope you’ll like. 😊
one post, one picture, one word every day for 24 days starting on December 1st
+ one extra post on Christmas day with (hopefully) a few monthly finishes
I will feature shots of current Christmas stitching or pieces I’ve stitched in the past, together with an Italian word every day, not much else (but I’ll throw in a few words if I manage to find the time 😉).
I already have a list of pieces, some I’ve been working on in November, some throughout the year, many will get fully crossed off the WIPorn list during the advent – but I won’t spill all the beans just yet. 😊
Now onto the adventure part of the post, and the matter that requires your input and help. 😊
My other plan is to start the Frosted Pumpkin Passport Club in December and have it finished before the end of the year or before the end of the holidays (it would male this my first finish of 2017! 😀). It was launched in January this year so most of it is available now (with the last bit coming out in just a couple of days); quite a bit, I know, but they are really tiny – this time the Pumpkin girls packed SO much cuteness in very little space! ❤️ My favourite bit so far is the kawaii koala, which happened to be released in October, my birth month. 😍
While I stitch I usually listen to music or an audiobook, or watch a film I’ve already seen so I don’t get too distracted (read too interested in the film rather than the needlework and make regrettable mistakes, ouch!). The obvious choice for Passport was Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne. 😀 I got the audiobook read by Patrick Tull and the 1956 film, which I’ve never seen – shocking, considering I fell in love with David Niven when I was a kid.
But as I was planning all of this I realised I might need something more to keep me company, and my dear friend Amanda had a brilliant idea: I could watch a movie set in each country; or as an extension to this: an audiobook by an author born in that country or set in that country, or watch a film based on said books, etc. 😉 so I thought I would ask you to recommend me something – I would love to get tips from all around the world! 😉
Here is the list of destinations, if anything comes to mind just let me know! 😊
- London, United Kingdom
- Paris, France
- The Netherlands
- Moscow, Russia
- Giza, Egypt
- Agra, India
- Sydney, Australia
- Lima, Peru
Now I simply must get back to my stitching or I won’t have time for any of these plans! 😜
See you in just a few days! Ciao!
