Avatar & Stitching

Well I haven't had that much time to stitch in the last week (again!). Still trying to get back into routines and stuff. And then didn't feel all that great Monday. But I do have some pics to show.
Here is Elfland SK by HAED, coming along...



And an update on my Rose Garden by Chatelaine:


I did also work on Dragons, will update on that later in the week.

And now, onto my review of Avatar.
Short version: Amazing.

Long version: It's very good. The 3D is excellent. Only a few points where it induced vertigo that really caused me trouble. But I just closed my eyes for a bit and it got better. This is good as that is what I was most concerned about, was being too dizzy t sit there. Yes it is long, just under 3 hours, but you barely notice. Yes, the story is unoriginal. But that doesn't take away from it's impact. It's truly beautiful and the 3D is amazing. A whole new way of seeing movies and the art that goes into them.
The verdict: Everyone should see this movie. It's truly groundbreaking.

I'm gonna try to get more time into Dragons this week. I want to get that page done soon, and I don't even think I'm halfway done it!
Thanks for visiting!

Glad you enjoyed the movie, and it didn't give you too much vertigo trouble.

Hey, would you like to stitch together this Saturday? Say... about 4 - 5 hours? I could use some encouragement also.
