... and yet more stitchin'

Gentle Friends, over the past week there's been an HBO watchathon and I've been binge watching GOT (Game of Thrones). If you've been reading this blog for a while you know that one of my worst traits is that I can dig my heels in and can be, as my gran would put it... "stubborn as a Georgia mule" about many things.  One of those things has been GOT.  Coming from a history background I have real issues with "history-based" dramas.... with this faux-historical stuff... they try really hard, but usually miss the mark by, like a mile!  Over the years I've avoided any bit of exposure to GOT.  I've had lots of folks in my life try and get me to watch, but I am stubborn and refused!!

So...with all the talk lately about Season 8 of GOT starting up, I thought I should give it one more chance.... and after watching about five episodes it started to click a bit and now I've gotten through 5 and 1/2 seasons and really want more show!!  With a cast of thousands, warlocks, white walkers, the children and three dragons... I am totally hooked!!

While I was watching all this GOT sex and killing I was stitching away !!  
Here's a snap of where I left off...

... sorry about the gigantic wrinkles.  I was really happy about the border matching up and not being off!!  I think I'm going to change up the second alphabet.  You'll get to see that next week.... unless it doesn't work, then I'll rethink it, but for now and in my mind I think it will work out... so fingers crossed!

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Looks fantastic Edgar!
    I’ve always been a GoT fan and over the last couple of weeks have re-watched the first 7 seasons just for a trip down memory lane. Once you’re caught up let us know what you think....I think you’re going to love it!

  2. Yay on the borders matching up! It is looking fabulous, Edgar. I look forward to seeing your change-up in the second alphabet. Hope it works the way you envision it.

  3. I have not watched a single GOT either and was wondering if I should do it now too. You got me thinking!AriadnefromGreece!

  4. Dearest Edgar: Beautiful sampler, nice progress.
    I cannot watch GOT I have a problem with the content especially when children are able to view it.
    I do understand why you are hooked.


  5. I love it when a border meets up perfectly, otherwise I have an absolute meltdown as I contemplate ripping out hours of stitching or throwing a piece. I have to say that I have even in my life watched a single minute of GOT. x

  6. Your sampler is looking great! Such cheery colors. I'm with you on being stubborn about not watching certain things. I still have not watched Titanic and thought I must be the only one out there that hasn't but no, I do have company out there on that! One of these days I will watch it!

  7. The colors on that sampler are beautiful!! I haven't watched GOT, not sure why!
