Re: Moirae's Misc Stitches (House Targaryen updated 09/26/2018)

Because I don't always post the same things across all social media: some posts from the last couple weeks regarding my Targaryen banner stitching while watching Netflix's Marvel series:

9/5 - I'm really enjoying not having to change colors (especially not after every 4 stitches). I managed to get a lot done while I rewatched season 1 of Daredevil. I am now a few episodes into the second and am going to try to continue stitching on this during the non action scenes .
______________ .______________

9/14 - Took a rest day, partly because my shoulder was a little achy, but mostly because the last few episodes of Daredevil s2 had so many dark scenes that I needed the lights off when I watched. Oh and because of the ninjas; so many dark and near-silent ninja scenes .

But the next night I started Jessica Jones. I previously watched the first episode, but it wasn't like Daredevil s1 and I wasn't in the right frame of mind for the alcoholism/PTSD, casual (and um? vigorous) sex-scenes and lots of mind-rape (and implied physical rape), but I did still want to see it, especially since I quite liked Krysten Ritter after the shortlived "Don't Trust the Bitch in Apt 23" .

This time, I knew what to expect and pushed through the slightly slower first episodes while stitching and wound up binge-watching S1 in 2 nights and, in the course of watching, managed to make a ton of progress on my #crossstitchwip . .

I can probably thank David Tennant's compelling performance as the villain for that. He set the bar so high that I started hoping mid-watch that he wouldn't be killed or permanently incapacitated/jailed because I can't imagine how the baddies of future seasons will ever measure up to his Purple Man .
______________ .______________
9/23 - I finished the 1st season of Luke Cage last week and, while I didn't think it was as good as Daredevil or Jessica Jones, it made for some good stitching time. Moved onto season 1 of Iron Fist and it is not doing it for me so far (the general premise kinda made me want to rewatch season 1 and 2 of DC universe - Arrow instead). So that's why stitching has slowed down. On the 5th episode now. We are starting to get more action and Rosario Dawson has showed up though. So, here's to hoping it gets engaging enough that I'll want to binge watch and stitch .


Today - Iron Fist has not gotten any better. I actually went a couple days without stitching before I hunkered down last night and managed 2 more episodes and got another 300 stitches done. I thought I was burning out on the stitching, but I think it's just this terrible show. lol... I only have ~650 stitches left. 4-5 hrs at most, but I might have to find something else to stitch to or it'll take a lot longer than it should for me to finish.

Clicky for big picture.

I'm not sure, yet. For now, I'm going to roll it up and stow it away. I'm a little tired of looking at it :cry: . I am thinking of doing the House Stark next year one when the final season comes out. So, I'm going to wait until either that one is done or I decide not to do it afterall, before planning out my display of them.

Fantastic! Will you frame it or use dowels to make it a banner hanging?

Almost 6 full skeins. I cut them up each time I opened a new one and had half a cut length left at the end.

I'm not sure yet. I'm thinking of doing the Stark one when the new season comes out and I'm waiting until I either do that one (or decide not to after all). I have thought about hanging it on dowels if I have enough fabric border to manage it (I suppose I could also add fabric for the part that goes on the dowel... hmm). I even have a couple dowels in my closet awaiting my decision.

Re: Moirae's Misc Stitches (Sailor Moon Suits COMPLETED 10/12/2018 )

Quick stitch this week. Feels nice to get finishes 2 weeks in a row.

Sailor Moon Sailor Suits by Stitchynova on Etsy
Stitched on 14 ct Charles Craft Silver Stardust (10% metallic)
If you stitch this yourself, I would recommend a darker fabric so that the wings and light part of the suits pop more. The silver metallic really made me think of the moon and that's why I used the fabric, but I think it would fab on something darker.
