Cross Stitch Happy

Friday, August 31, 2007


This is a cute pattern I got from Creative Poppy . It certainly lived up to it's image, I had to "rip it" a few times. It is stitched on Sassy's Fabbys Gray Flannel 28 ct. evenweave. The fabric I picked up at Michael's and am going to use it for the back. It just may mature into a pin keep. I also have a few small stitches I've done, no photos yet, recharging my battery.

Get off your duff and start reading !!

I love reading, at least I used to. When I worked full time, most lunch hours you would find me reading. Since I "retired" back in Oct. 2003 I have read maybe 4 books. I've read heaps of magazines, the articles are short and sweet. As I was reading some of my favorite blogs today, Mary Kathryn mentioned Good Reads and a bulb went off, what a good way to get back into one of my favorite hobbies. I tired signing up, only to find I had already signed up back in June, that will be for another posting entitled "She Forgets". Since I am already signed up for Good Reads I should probably use it. I am starting tonight with a book I have by Danielle Steel called "The Gift". I read this when it first came out in 1994, and am sure I will enjoy it today as much as I did then.

Thanks to the messages about my printer, I was able to get what I needed off their web site. Just have to get more ink cartridges now. :)

Stressed out !!!

I have not been happy with the performance of my PC for some time now. I finally took the plunge and bought a new one and in the process of trying to save what was on the old one, I messed up and now the mouse or keyboard won't work. My brother is taking it to set up for his 4 year old grandson to play some games on. He doesn't know what I did ...yet :) I'm sure he will be able to fix it, so am hoping he will be able to save some files for me. There is so much in setting up a new computer. Luckily I printed out my e-mail addresses, and know where most of my favorites are and for those I don't am not going to panic, they will come up at some point.
My big problem is I can't find the CD to install the printer. It has got to be here, but for the life of me I can't remember where I thought it would be save to put :)
