Wow, so my Netflix queue is shrinking for what seems like the first time since I joined back in 2002. There have been a number of times I have had to delete movies from my list because I reached the 500 limit. Part of it is a larger number of movies "being moved to my saved list"-at first I thought it was because they were out of print but at least one of those movies was readily available New at amazon. The major reason though is that I have been watching a ton of movies this summer. My older daughter is going to day camp so while my younger daughter naps I have time theoretically to watch one movie a day. And since I have taken up stitching I am watching more as I sit down to stitch. The only movie I really had a problem watching while stitching was The Prestige . A great movie, full of twists and turns that demanded my attention. So I just had to pause a few times to count or just (gasp!!) stop stitching for a few minutes. I just know not to attempt a foreign film, no way could I read subtitles constantly while I stitch.
Numbers one and two right now are Rendition and The Game Plan. To mix things up, the first person to comment on this please give me a number from 5-405. I will move that movie on up to number one on the queue.
**Quick Stitching Update**
I have another finish, a magnet I did for an exchange on the I Love Cross Stitch yahoo group. I fell in love with a pattern and I just thought it was perfect for Gabi, the woman who is to receive it. More on that later, and no pics until it arrives safely in Australia!
Hopefully in the next couple of days I should complete the Mets Logo. Only two colors but tons of stitches. I think I am on my sixth skein for one of them. Wish me Luck!
