Sorry this is going up a bit late, it ended up NOT being a good weekend but not for the usual reason. I stitched pretty well Friday night and Saturday, working on Alice and the B's. Friday night got me here:
And by Saturday night I had a couple of leaves done and finished at 32.7 hrs. The camera I usually use wasn't getting the green leaves (my old Sony TX66, it's easier because it's smaller), they just all blended together because it was so dark, so I decided to get out my good camera. Problem was, I couldn't find my little case with all my memory cards in it. I searched high and low until about 4 am, but still couldn't find it. In the end, I had to use the old one and just really brightened the pic up post-production (but they are still really hard to see, sorry):
Sunday, the day I was supposed to dedicate to Maleficent, was a day of stitching for 20 minutes, then searching for my memory cards for an hour. This went on all day long. I did get her up to 28.73 hrs, but not a lot of progress. She went from here:
So no finish on the navy yet. I so wanted to move on to the next color on her.
I can't for the life of me figure out what happened to those blasted cards! Luckily, I had a card in the camera I always use to take pictures, but it's a micro and my big camera uses full ones (although I could just use an adapter and still use the same card, but that's not the point). Sure, I can buy more memory cards, but it's just adding to the Post-Disney Depression. I have all my original pictures from my last trip saved in five different locations, but it has always been a pre-trip ritual to delete the last trip's pictures and reformat the cards right before I leave on the next trip. I won't be able to do that next time. And I did have quite a large collection of them as well. Granted, it won't take a lot of money to replace them now, but most of them were bought when the prices were high. That sucks. I'm still hoping they magically turn up, but considering I went through each possible location about ten times and every non-probable location at least once, I'm not counting my chickens. I rarely lose things, but apparently, when I lose them, they are really lost!!!
