I am marinating chicken to cook for dinner tonight. Go me, with the cooking. We'll see how this comes out. Did some dishes and am waiting for them to dry so I can put them away. I don't believe in the whole using a towel to dry the dishes thing. They can air dry and like it. So, not too much on the agenda for today. More bad TV and cross stitching, I suspect. I am moving right along with the backstitching and it looks really cool. All of the castle is done, and bits and pieces of the dragon are also finished. I have a lot more work to do...but assuming that I just spend the next couple of days hanging out at home...and at the moment I have no other plans...I should finish it fairly soon. Yay!

The weekend went pretty well, I think. Our group got along well, we had plenty of food and drinks, and way too much Buffy and Angel, as evidenced by the fact that I dreamt about fighting demons last night. I finished the cross stitch part of my cross stitch on Sat night, and started the tedious process of backstitching on Sunday, so I am feeling very accomplished. It looks cool. That's the nice thing about the backstitching, it makes such a dramatic difference right away; I really feel like I am getting somewhere. Need to take a break for a couple of days though as my neck, back and wrists are a little out of whack from spending the weekend hunched over my canvas.

I spent a lot of time yesterday working on my crafting. =) Still, I made good progress and have finished one project and am nearing completion of another (if only it didn't keep needing extra stuff - glitter, paint, etc.) Also worked on the dragon cross stitch, which is coming along nicely. At this rate, the cross stitching should be done by the end of the month, and then begins the tedious process of backstitching all the outlines. *sigh*
