it’s been a productive few days. on saturday i started a skirt made out of some really beautiful crinkle textured purple/black chameleon cloth. i made it into a simple, floor length, straight skirt. the cloth it’s self is so pretty it doesn’t need any further embellishment.
i also got the itch to do some x-stitching. it’s been quite a while. i picked up an old project i haven’t worked on in months, that i started years ago. it’s a cross stitched screen shot from NIN’s the perfect drug video. it’s very detailed and stitched on some of the smallest aida i’ve ever worked on. it’s going to take years to complete. just the highlighted section took me a better part of 4 hours.
yesterday i didn’t get too much done. i wasn’t feeling well and slept most of the day. because of that i couldn’t sleep last night, and ended up playing magic: the gathering with my fiancé until 3:30 in the morning. lol
today was a lot better. i got a ton of cleaning done in the living room, it’s just detail work now. my fiancé has gotten a TON of cleaning done in the kitchen the past couple of days. <3 i can’t wait to get it all done and make a couple minor cosmetic repairs in there.
as far as projects go, i finished knitting a dish scrubby and i’m attempting to cover a few old potholders with new fabric. they’re horribly stained, but still functional.
me and my fiancé watched mutant chronicles while we had dinner. it was pretty good. *very* steam punk, and a bit on the gory side for watching while eating. i tried a new recipe - turkey taco skillet. it came out pretty good. i need to refigure the points, because that’s A LOT of food for that few points. if it’s accurate it may be one of my new favorites. very filling and quite good. i used regular rice instead of instant, and had to keep adding water, and it took much longer, but it was still really good. i had mine on a bed of lettuce with some diced tomato, taco salad style
