**This is the 4th time I have tried to post this entry today. I am adding photos and when I use the Blogger uploader, it tells me it is done then the code is lost in cyber space… sigh….. So your photos today are not clickable. Sorry.**
Hey, guess what? I’m alive!!! (Picture a bony hand reaching out through an earth mound….)
Anyhoo – just catching up on a few things before my computer gets shut down indefinately. (No worries – I will still have internet access).
Firstly, thank you so much for all your well wishes. Scott is doing much better. We are at the emptying the house stage now, and he is busy loading and unloading the trailer daily.
Second, the green heart is a freebie. I listed instructions on where to get it here. Happy stitching!
Have you ever used a magnifying glass while stitching? If so, did you find it helpful?
I have, and I don’t like it. I tried it when I was stitching the Joy tree by M Designs (over one on 32 ct) and I got so dizzy looking back and forth from pattern to fabric, it was easier to stitch without it.
Speaking of SBQs, there was one waaaayyyyy back about the smallest peice we have ever stitched. I answered it was a celtic cross piece that my sister in law brought home for me from Scotland. I couldn’t post a photo because said piece had gone AWOL. Well, lo and behold! Upon moving furniture and junk yesterday it has been found:
It was the smallest thing at that time, but I have since stitched a fob that is smaller. (A little sun/moon for Isabelle last year.)
On to other finishes. Last night I finished the stitching on Just Nan’s Wintry Mix. I was going to add the beads but I have packed my beading needles!!!! So, y’all are going to have to wait for the final glory but as a tease:
That is all for now. Back to packing!
I almost forgot!!! I got RAK’d last week!!! When I showed up for the regular Thursday night stitching, Ann passed on a couple things for me. I had leant out my copy of Barbara Baatz’s Native American Angel, and mentioned that if there was a way I could snafu her copy of the Japanese Angel, I would be greatful. Well, Kim graciously gave me her copy of the pattern, working copy made and all! Woot! One crossed off my wishlist.
Then, Ann announced some anonymous benefactors wanted to RAK me. Without too much torture, I discovered the anonymous benefactors were in fact partners in crime, Christin and Dani and they gave me Dragon Dreams Blackwork Princess!!!! Woot! It was a good week.
