man, that was too epic.

16 Jul

Merry and I went to see Harry Potter today, naturally.  I’m not so keen on midnight showings now that the majority of my nerdy little crew has moved away from Washington – things like that are best done in big groups.  However, matinee showings are just fine for couples, dontcha know?

I was not disappointed.  The Snape memories were effective, I got to see Molly Weasley be all kinds of awesome, and Neville totally got his moment in the sun.  We weren’t sure whether it would happen for him or whether they’d find a way to edit his part, but again – not disappointed.  And it was too much to my little fangirl heart to watch Ron and Hermione finally have their moment.  There is one canon couple that I’ve NEVER had an issue with.  🙂

So, on the crafting front.  Meridan says I can’t learn a new craft, because I know too many.  He is a buttface.  I’ve been thinking about quilting lately, although that seems like quite the undertaking.  Maybe if I bought some kit or something that already had the pieces cut, and I could just machine quilt them?  Hm.  I need to just shut up and stick to crocheting afghans, right?  I mean – one skill is as good as another.  And yet, my itchy little fingers…

My giant granny square has stalled at the moment for lack of yarn.  It’s a sad thing, really.  Perhaps there will be a chance to get more later.

I’ve picked up my cross stitching again recently – I have a few tiny projects going on, a little pixel-ish montage of four images from Sleeping Beauty.  It’s a chart from Magical Cross Stitch, which I picked up secondhand and really enjoy.

Enough nonsense, there’s more Camelot to be watched, people!
