13 May 2012 TUSAL, WIPocalypse and holiday

Late again with both TUSAL and WIPocalypse, but this time I have a really good excuse – we were on holiday in the US (more on that in a little bit).

So, TUSAL:

 Mostly greens this time, because while we were away I worked on this:

 This is (or will be!) a Heaven and Earth Designs (HAED)chart, Storykeep Forest Walk.  I must say, I’m very impressed with this.  HAED don’t use blended threads, and I wasn’t sure that the shading wouldn’t be rather blocky, but I think the graduation of colour is excellent.

Because we were away, not much else has happened in sewing terms since my last post.

 This is how the Dark Knight looked at the last post.

 This is it now.  As you can see, the Joker is started on the left hand side.  I’m keeping on with Forest Walk for a little while longer.

The next section is going to be about our holiday, and it’s going to be in German, for the benefit of my German class.  Translations will be after the pictures.

Wir haben zweieinhalb wochen in Amerika verbracht.  Wir sind zuerst nach New York gefahren.

We spent two and a half weeks in America.  We first went to New York.

Wir sind zu Freiheit und Ellis Inseln, und Wall Street gegangen (wo wir haben die Besitzer, aber ich bestätigen habe wollen ihren Protest durch Nehmen keines Bilds von ihnen gesehen),

 

We went to Liberty and Ellis Islands, and Wall Street (where we saw the occupiers, but I didn’t want to validate their protest by taking a picture of them).

Wir sind das Reichstaatgebäude gestiegen, und haben das Chrysler Gebäude gesehen.

   

We went up the Empire State Building, and saw the Chrysler Building.

Wir sind zu Zeiten Quadrat gegangen, obwohl wir irgendeine Schauen auf Broadway nicht gegangen sehen sind. Sie waren zu teuer!

We went to Times Square, although we didn’t go to see any shows on Broadway.  They were too expensive!

Zentraler Park war besonders schön, weil die Kirschbäume in Blüte waren. Es ist erstaunlich groß, und ich bin meine Füße ab gelaufen.

     

Central Park was especially beautiful, because the cherry trees were in bloom.  It is amazingly large, and I walked my feet off.

Wir sind zum Kreuzgängenmuseum gegangen, die berühmten Einhornwandteppiche zu sehen, und das Hauptstädtische Museum der Kunst.

  

We went to the Cloisters Museum to see the famous unicorn tapestries, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Wir haben in der New York Bibliothek gesessen, haben Mittagessen in der Rockefeller Mitte gegessen, und haben eine Fahrt in der einzigen Drahtseilbahn von New York gehabt.

   

We sat in the New York Library, ate lunch in the Rockefeller Center, and had a ride in New York’s only cable car.

Wir haben Yankee Stadion bereist, haben das Bügeleisengebäude gesehen, und sind über die Brooklyn Brücke gelaufen.

   

We toured Yankee Stadium, saw the Flat Iron Building and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Nächste woche, Philadelphia und Washington!

Next week, Philadelphia and Washington!

  1. Great work on Forest Walk! I have the SK for that as well, although I haven’t started it. Seeing yours makes me want to. 🙂 Great pictures of NYC. If you ever come back, there’s a way to get Broadway tickets at 50% off, now they’re still expensive, but slightly less so. There’s a both in front of one of the big hotels that sells them. Have fun in Philly and Washington! Philly has a good tour bus system (or did have) where you can buy a day pass and get on the bus and travel wherever, then pick up another one and go elsewhere, it’s a pretty nice system. That way you don’t have to try and figure out their commuter system, I think it’s a purple bus? Have fun whatever your plans are!!
