Wow. It’s been two years since I caught RA Fever (and almost 18 months since I started my blog)!!! This past year has been a busy one. I didn’t accomplish as much as I wanted to, crafting wise, but I did manage to do something I never imagined! I met Richard Armitage! *giggle* Yeah, that one was on my “Never Gonna Happen” list. Guess I can scratch that one off! 😉
Last year, I stated that one of my goals was to finish Stitchin’ Richard. Well, that didn’t happen. I did get 15,900 out of 26,100 stitches done, though, and finished the first two pages.
Pages three and four have a total of 10,200 stitches and they are less complicated. The coat portion is less detailed so that will go much quicker. This is what it should look like when finished:
I’m hoping to get it finished this summer as I’ve already got my eyes set on the next stitching project. Yes, Stitchin’ Thorin, I’m looking at you!!!!
The Lils are always looking for an excuse to celebrate, so we had cupcakes this year. Poor Lil JS had his hands full trying to keep Lil Patty out of the chocolate frosting. She just doesn’t care that it isn’t good for her!
My Girl remarked that it kinda looks like Lil JS is all raging at Lil Patty for stealing his cupcake. I said, “JS does NOT rage!” My husband spoke up and said, “I don’t know, he did rage pretty hard at that dude in the movie.”
And here I thought he wasn’t paying attention..!!!
