May WIPocalypse

So here's my post for May.

13 Colonies

 I'm getting close to finishing this. A few more states and the bottom border and then it will be done. I only work on this at stitch night so it seems like it's slow going but I am happy with the progress.

 I've finished one side of part 3 on Deep Blue Sea and started on the right side. I'm trying to catch up on this one, so it will be on the stand and be my focus piece at home.

Next up is The Astronomer. I finished page 7 and hence the first row. After I catch up DBS I'm going to start the second row on this.

I picked this up at Stitch Night last Wednesday. It is Mirabilia's new Santa. Don't know when I will start it but I was really taken with it.

Finally, in non-stitching information, we went to see The Avengers today. AWESOME! Joss Whedon did a great job with the screenplay and the direction. As a former comic collector I have to say I was very pleased with the way it was handled. Go see it if you get the chance.

The other discovery I made today is the 7-11 has a sugar free Mango Slurpee! That is great news for diabetics like me. I plan on getting one almost every day. Whoo Hoo!

Thanks for stopping by.

You're making great progress on everything! You need to start the Santa now, though...all your fault I spent half the weekend working on him. Mango? I wish they had a diet coke slurpee.

Wow! Your WIPs look fantastic. I especially like the LNH 13 Colonies one ~ very sweet!

I can't WAIT to see The Avengers! We don't usually go on opening weekends since I kinda have a "thing" about crowds.

13 Colonies is looking great - cheering you on to a finish. I LOVE that Santa! He is definitely on my wish list. Deep Blue Sea is beautiful! The colors just pop on your fabric.
