This entry coming to you from my shiny new laptop!

Yep, finally broke down (well broke the dh down) and got a new puter. Its a Gateway laptop (recommended by Al thank you very much) and I AM LOVING IT! It actually does what I want it to do without a fight and so many new features that I never knew about with my old puter.

On the stitchy front...I finished a page of Hope, Did 3 of 4 parts on PIG and have now turned my attention to a 2nd page of Autumn due to the Mid-Season SAL on the MB. I haven't made as much progress this weekend as I would've liked. I went on an organization binge yesterday and completely cleaned and organized my craft room, then I went and bought a new chair for stitching. Then came home to a puter that was acting totally wonky, combination of Yahoo acting up and the puter acting crazy. Got MSN IM installed and used that for the night (no way Lana and I cannot chat for an entire night). Well I woke up this morning to a computer acting crazy again and just finally gave up on it. So my stitching has suffered tremendously this weekend.

After I finish this page of Autumn I will post pics of Hope, PIG and this promise!!

Wow...what a week

Well made it thru another week! And finally finished that dang page of Hope today (I'll post pics after PIG part 3 is done). I've got some stitchy housecleaning to do tonight, wanna outline Scrump's stocking and finish up a Papillon freebie. I decided to use VC Premium silks for Scrumps stocking, got a few stitches in yesterday while I was waiting for the car. It is going to be a masterpiece, if I do say so myself.

I had a bunch of retail therapy yesterday, went shopping with a friend. Boy did I spend alot of money! But it was free money, sorta, my brother owed me $300 from something I charged for him and I had already paid it off. So, I went to the mall with a friend and her son and bought 3 pairs of jeans, a cute little pair of flip flops for around the house, a pair of housepants and 5 or 6 tops. Oh and we went to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory, OMG it was delicious and the menu what 20 pages lol.

Now off to another week of work. I'm considering taking Friday off and making it a nice long 3 day weekend. Since I don't get paid for time off, I can't really take a full week at a time, so I'm thinking I might start taking some Fridays off and making long weekends.

Well thats bout it, nothing much else going on...

Happy 4th Everyone

Yeah, I know not the 4th yet, but its the long weekend.

Not much to update on my front, just the way I like it. I have a long 4 day weekend and Momma is visiting, so its been busy so far. Went shopping yesterday for some much needed decorating supplies. I got a small table, lamp and decorative candle holder for my bedroom and got the most beautiful fabby to make table runners for the bedroom (Momma will be making those). I also picked up a kit for Mirabilia's Lady of the Flag. I don't know when I'll ever get to it, but it is being discontinued and it was only $10, so I figured it was worth it.

On the stitchy front, I am working on the 939 on page one of Hope, I would really like to finish it in the next few days, before I go back to work. Then I'm on to Part 3 of PIGgy. Hope is coming out stunning of course. I'll post pics at the end of this rotation (Hope, PIGgy, and the 2nd pages of Autumn and Daze). Probably be close to the end of the month. Pappillion released a new design on Friday and it is stunning, but unfortunately, gotta finish something before I can get it. And Michele has released Petite Point designs that are stunning on Silk Gauze. Lana and I decided that when we finish 2 pages on our current rotation our treat will be a PP and the Gauze to go with it.

See, not much going on round here, just wanted to say HI!
