March Tons of Tiny

Another week has passed, and I'll be using the opportunity of my weekly progress post to get a not-too-late sign in for Tons of Tiny done. This month, I have three tiny finishes to count again (well stiching finishes, I still need to finish-finish but that might take a while longer so I'll just count them now): The two sides of Magical's March fob that I already showed a while back, and then her April ornament which I just finished this weekend; it was a ton of backstitching but the result is so worth it again:


I also had a new start that might count as a tiny when finished, I haven't checked the dimensions yet...it's September of Ellen Maurer-Stroh's Flower of the Month patterns, and I'm doing it as a wedding sampler for a friend of ours who's getting married in May.


Of course I also stitched the next column of Dark Force. Fun fact -  used actual black for the first time in this one, everything else was just really dark blues and greys. AND I finally got to sew off the loose ends on that pair of pot holders I crocheted sometime last year! Now that's what I call a productive weekend.


As for watching, we finished Big Bang Theory (S7, E22-24 - Season 8 isn't in amazon prime yet) and started How I met your Mother (S1, E1) to take it's place. We have both seen this one up to vertain (different) points, but we figured we'd just start over from the beginning. We also saw more Supernatural (S5 E21+22 and S6 E1-5). This weekend, Felix wasn't here, so I got to watch some stuff he just recently watched and didn't want to do so again with me just yet -  13 going 30, which I really enjoyed, and Castle (S2, E1-8). 

There are also some news in gaming - I finally bought myself a PlayStation 4 a while ago, and since I got a bundle deal together with The Order 1886, this was the first game I played. It's rather short, so I finished within a week or so, but I really enjoyed it - it as an interesting story, well thought out background and characters, and potential for more games to follow, so I'm looking forward to that. Although the graphics was really impressing after being used to PS3 for so long :)

    1. Wii U is the next one on my to-get list, but there just aren't many games I'm interested in yet. Not that I don't have enough to play anyways haha :D

    1. Thank you! I just checked and that flower is approx. 60x60 stitches, so you are right!

  4. I so want a PS4. I use to love gaming. Can't tell you how many consoles I have. Never really cared for Xbox, always bought PS. I do play quick computer games every now and again. (I'm a mega fan of the Delicious Emily computer games.) Maybe I should spend a little time turning my mind to mush while staring endlessly at pixels with my sad PS3 hehe. Dark Force is looking great btw.

    1. I got quite a few consoles myself - same story here, I never cared for XBox, but I got most of what Sony and Nintendo made, and quite some PC games as well. I don't now Delicious Emily, maybe I'll have to check that out! There's no better way to mush one's mind than a little gaming, isn't there? :D

    2. Do you still have any of your old consoles? Still have my Sega haha. Games still play well on it too.

    3. I still have all of them, although I didn't start very early since I had to buy all of them myself (exept for my Wii and DS, those were presents but they came way later). So my oldest ones are my Game Boy Color and the PS One :)

  5. We're still on the PS3, we'll probably get the PS4 when Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out.

    1. I'll need that one as well, but the 'trigger' for me is The Wither 3 which comes out in May :D

  6. Cute tinies this month and great progress on Dark Force.
    I'm not a gamer, but I do play Dragon Story app on the iPad with my son. I like breeding and raising lots of little dragons!

    1. Thank you! Those little App-games can be quite addictive, I try to avoid them since the take away so much time but I don't always manage to :D
