Heart's Sentinel by P J Schnyder

Anime I've watched

REWATCH! - Anime, Japanese version
10/10 E
(I've seen it enough times I can watch without subs - I don't understand all of it, but it's even more enjoyable when I'm not reading the subs - I can focus on the emotions of the characters.) 

Winx: Season 3
REWATCH! - Anime, French version
10/10 E
(This is a slow rewatch as I need more lively shows when I'm not feeling great [been a hectic week].) 

Rozen Maiden
REWATCH! - Anime, English version
(I adore the outfits for this show, and the storyline, so I'm watching the dubbed version in English when I'm tired...)

Cardcaptor Sakura:  Season 2
Anime, French version
(Tiffany is still creating lots of cute new outfits for Sakura!)

Anime, French version
10/10 E
(Heidi recently saw the birth of a new goat!) 

Craft & other hobbies 

Sadly this week included a trip to the dentist, and a headache, so I haven't had time for my hobbies which require a bit of energy.

No, wait, I'm mistaken - I did do some crochet! FINALLY finishing my cute spring slash summer crochet square blanket - I may have shown a photo of the single squares many moons ago. I've sewn all the ends and all the squares together. Now I'm doing a simple border,which you can see in the lower left corner - it's the row of white. To make it a better size for me I'm toying with a row of orange after the white, then either white or purple and finishing on white. So many decisions!  Here's what my square currently looks like. It needs a few more rows then I'll finish it and do another. Pretty!
