My Sunday Stitchy Update


What do you mean have I been gone? LOL Seems like I have been gone forever and I missed some updates including the WIPocalypse and IHSW along with a few weekly updates computer decided it "needed" to go into the hospital and get some repairs because it had Blue Screenitis. I worked on it a few days with NO luck so I ended up having to take it in to be repaired. They had it for a while and ended up having to reinstall windows to get it running! The good thing is that MOST of my files where still in tact because I have NOT done a backup in who-knows-how-long and I didn't want to lose anything. So...I guess I will start backing up my computer MORE OFTEN!

So while I was going thru separation anxiety I was to depressed to do any stitching.  When they finally said the computer was ready and I would get it back in a couple of days I started feeling a bit better so I worked on the finishing touches for Jacob's teachers pieces and getting them ready to frame.  Pictures of that stuff to come later when they are all done.

So...since my last post I have received some new stash! For Mother's Day my daughter bought me a chart for an upcoming Facebook SAL hosted by Bev from Love Thy Thread.

I wanted to do this chart (I don't think it has a name besides #3)  

and she also gave me this floss to stitch it with

Now I need to hurry up and hunt for
some fabric since it starts on the 1st of June!

I also had a finish since my last update. 
I finished Darth Vader's Dark Side
I made it in to a small pillow for my son's birthday.
I added the cookies myself after I saw a
friend's finish where she added cookie buttons. 

While sitting around reinstalling programs and
setting up my computer I started a new kit.

Today Is Not Your Day!

Didn't get much stitched while
installing programs but it is a start!

Well back to working on my computer -
hope I will have everything finished with it soon

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
