Hunky Monday??

Sorry. I missed Hunky Friday. We had another death in the family last week. I had relatives in from out of town all weekend. If that weren't enough, I've got another lousy, stinking, terrible cold. Sniff.

Okay. Enough whining.

I've had several follower friends placing hunk requests of late. Over the next few weeks, I shall honor those requests. If you have someone special that you'd like to see featured, feel free to drop me a line.

The following hunk is not really my cuppa, but he is cute. Requested by a fellow blogger who has been watching Ripper Street with me, I present to you Matthew Macfadyen.

I'll try not to miss this next Friday. :)

Theme-a-licious Check-in

So this is my first mid-month check in for Theme-a-licious.

I don't have any pix ready to post, so I think I'll just tell you a bit about my plans.

This month's theme is: Figural February - "Who are the people in your neighborhood...your WIP neighborhood, that is? Give your people-populated projects some face time this month."

Most of what I stitch includes people, but I will make a special effort on a couple of neglected pieces this month. (I hope.)

I received my 2012 Mirabilia Round Robin back (finally). However, the last stitcher only put in a partial section, and she stitched it in the wrong box. :(    So, I picked out the stitches she had done, and I stitched Nora Corbett's Lavender Pixie in the correct box. Dear, sweet Julie from Red Couch Stitcher , has volunteered to stitch the remaining box with Sweet Pea pixie, so I don't have to do two boxes. When I get it back from her, I will do the beading on all eight pixies. I will share a picture during my WIPocalypse check in.

I really want to put in another couple hundred stitches into Yiota's Bellydancer No. 1.

Here is what she looked like last time:

I'm almost certain that I won't reach the actual bellydancer, but I'd like to make some progress.

I have also long neglected my Passione Ricamo Mistery Fairy SAL. I completed through Step 2. We've received Step 8 at the beginning of February. I guess I'm a little behind.

This is what it looked like through Step 2 (keeping in mind that I do the beading at the end):

So, let's see if I've made any progress by the end of the month. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

February ORTs

Quick post today.

It looks like 2013 might be a very stitchy year. It's only February, and look at all these ORTs!!

Sorry, I didn't have a chance to coax a cat into the picture this time.

Hunky Friday Redux - "Got Milk?"

Yes, I know. I did him before....ha ha ha! I just had to say that. (Wishful thinking)

I was inspired by a Super Bowl Ad. I wish I could send Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson out to get a gallon of milk for me. :-D You've got to love a hunk that doesn't take himself too seriously.

I just love this guy!

The Boys Are Back in Town!!

Forgive me, dear readers, for depriving you of hunky manliness for so long. You know the last couple of months were rather stressful. But, fear no more, I'm bringing back the hunks!

I hope you don't mind a repeat. Manu Bennett was my second ever Friday Hunk. The final season of Spartacus began last week, and I'm newly enthralled by this guy. Be still my little heart!!

I have some new pictures of him. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Just look at that smile!

Love the black tee!

I almost shorted out my keyboard with all the drool. ;)  Heavy sigh.

See you next time.
