Progress pics

Here's Mary Wigham so far! I'm really enjoying stitching her, as I can move onto another part if I need a break from the part I'm stitching.

Now, here's my work on Alison's present- I think I lost something in the translation, cos, as you can see from this pic, it's not really large enough to hold a pair of scissors. I thought it was stitched over 1, but maybe not.

So, I've started again, stitching over 2. This looks much better, as I'll be able to store all the goodies inside, like needles, scissors, floss tag, and maybe some counting needles and other stitchy stuff.

I know its TUSAL time, but I haven't taken my pic yet.

Sadly, our computer is going off to the manufacturer for warranty work- the DVD thing is dodgy. I don't use it, but apparently it is useful and so Steve wants it replaced. I'm really scared that all my stuff is going to go 'poof' as the manufacturer has been insisting we do a restore back to factory settings before they'll do anything. Steve has resisted, knowing that all the stuff like favourites will disappear and they take ages to find again. In the meantime, I'm transferring all my freebies, family pics etc to our external hard drive. Acer have told Steve that they might lose all our stuff when they replace the optical reader- I interpret this as being -they'll do a factory restore to start with and go from there.

I wanted to buy some fabric online, guess I'll have to go to the library to do so. And I need to email anyone who might be expecting to contact me by email in the next 2 weeks or so... Oh, how I hate computers when they don't work.

July's Goals

I have been inspired by Silver Lotus to set some goals for this month. Here's what I'd like to achieve

1/ Continue on Mary Wigham
2/ Keep working on Alison's present
3/ Order chart & froufrou for T's wedding sampler
4/ Keep knitting Jack's,(the Jack Russell)rug, knit up at least half the wool I have
5/ Sew the messenger bag I just bought the fabric for
6/ Finish the chair pad
7/ Walk every 2nd day
8/ Start (and finish) Nicholas's quilt
9/ Start my pansy quilt (finally found the right pattern!)

Not much, hey! However, the school holidays start Friday, for 2 weeks. I suppose that will cut down my freebie searching time on the computer as Nicholas does like to play the hidden object games style games we have, so I might just get some of these done!

Happy Stitching!
