So Fan February came to and end. As you know I decided to take a slightly different approach to the Fan theme, as I simply coudn't pick a favourite designer. I decided to stitch things that are more or less tributes to things I'm fan of, in this case - Harry Potter and Terry Pratchet.
My projects were The Hogfather - I actually started it this month mostly so it could go for the challenge. Sadly I didn't get anything dome since I last showed it to you, it's still as I left it- > here

The other thing was.. that's right the Hogwarts biscornu! Good news here - I have it almost done :))) All the stitching is done, what's left is just to assemble the biscornu. Here it is, still hot :D
I really like how many details are in with so little stitches. There were quite many shades from every colour but it was all worth it and I can't wait to finish it properly. Yeah, I know, the border is off, but I can fix that so no worries!
Now let's see what the Themealicious has for us for the next month:
March Madness
Stitch or knit on something different every day...it's madness...of the funnest possible kind.

You say?...

Actually Heather from Geek to me says that it's enough to do something to shake the stitching routine a little. I gues for me it would mean to sit one project until I finish it, but uh-huh I don't see this happening. If I had the time I would work on something different every day with pleasure. But I don't so I'm going to try and put a dozen of stitches on every project of my Wipocalypse list (minus the Doctor and the Mirror, I don't need a new start and I don't have fabric and some of the threads for him). But literally a dozen, no more.

Apart from this, my stitching plans are
1. To finish Hogwarts
2. To make a couple of bookmarks for bdays
3. Work on the fairy and not jump on another project until I finish her dress and wings.

The last goal has no time limit, even if I do hope to finish beading the wings and dress before the end of March. I really need to learn to concentrate more >.>

And a P.S. The March Hare and pretty much everyone and everything in the animated Disney movie is seriously freaking me out. And the flowers. Especially the flowers. Everything is way to distubingly creepy and freaky to me. The last Alice movie was the right kind of creepy freaky, the way it's supposed to be, so I loved it. Not only becaus of Depp :D And I like the book too, but I don't think it's a children book.
And there's no way you can convince me that thing the Hare was putting in his tea was sugar

Краят на февруари дойде, значи е време за отчет по предизвикателството Темалишъс. Темата за изминалия месец бе "Фенски Феврури", което аз реших да посветя на две любими четива - Хари Потър и Пратчет.
По Дядо Прас на Тери Пратчет няма напредък от последния път, когато го показах - той още си е където го оставих - ей тука
Затова пък при Хогуортс бискорнято нещата изглеждат още по-добре. Там имах и допълнителен стимул - играта Сръчнотийки от форума, където темата за месеца пък беше бискорню или възглавничка, и така успях да си напасна нещата. Остава ми само да го сглобя, срокът е до пети и се надявам да го хвана :)

При Темалишъс новата тема е "Мартенска лудост - работи върху различен проект всеки ден" като организаторката допълва, че всъщност е достатъчно просто да направиш нещо, с което да излезеш от рутината. Хмм предполагам, че за мен това би означавало да седна и да работя само върху едо нещо докато не го свърща, ноо изобщо не виждам това да се случи :D По принцип с удоволствие бих работила върху различен проект всеки ден, само ако времето позволяваше. То обаче не е благосклонно към такива начинания. Затова намеренията ми са да се опитам и да поработя мъничко върху всеки от проектите от Уипокалипс списъка, без Доктора и Оледалцето, защото не ми трябва да започвам още нещо, пък и ми липсват материали. Ама наистина ще е мъничко. Съвсем съвсем мънинко.

Иначебъдещите ми планове са общо взето
1. да довърша Хогуортс
2. да направя два книгоразделителя за рожденни дни
3. да работя върху феята докато не и свърша роклята и крилата - това няма времеви лимит, просто определено имам нужда да се науча да си задържам вниманието на едно нещо, че на ниво концентрация съм като златна рибка. Т.е. три секунди или една обиколка на аквариума. Затова пък те винаги са изненадани, надявам се приятно, от това чудно ново водорасло, с което са украсили.

Excellent job on the biscornu, I love it! Good luck with your "mad" plans for March :-)

Anne каза...

Great biscornu Nina!!! Sounds like you've got a good plan for March Madness!!

Jennifer M. каза...

Loving your Hogwarts biscornu design! Anything Harry potter is great. :)

I love Alice in Wonderland. I'm a fan of the Disney movie and didn't think I would like the Tim Burton version but I seriously loved it. Johnny Depp is an amazing actor.

BTW I cracked up at your comment about the sugar in the Hare's tea. It certainly makes one wonder, but then again he was supposed to be Mad (crazy) :)

LOL!!!! I LOVE the March Hare for March Madness!! =) I think you have a good idea to put 12 stitches in each of your projects.

Congratulations on finishing the biscornu. It's really cute!
