I've got a new computer.
I know you'll understand now why I've been gone so long.
DH reassures me that I will get "used" to it. Well, I don't like disappearing links and unannounced restart when I'm in the middle of something :( And a hundred other things. Talk about cranky! Am I the only one that doesn't connect "new" to improved?
Here is what I've been doing. I finished BBD Wild Garden. Very fun stitch and stress-free. Linen and threads provided in the kit.
Here are the first two blocks to the Natalie Bird Red Home quilt. I am the only one in my class to do raw-edge applique with Lite Steam a Seam II and whip stitches. Everyone else is doing needleturn applique. Do you think I'll regret my decision?
And a new start from the Ladies Prim Society-Blackbird Designs Song of Spring. Linen and thread also provided. Another relaxing stitch. Other than the 4 sided stitch for the alphabet, there aren't any specialty stitches.
Here is the latest on my Prairie Schooler Alphabet. I'm still hoping to get it finished this year.
I have decided to call 2013 the Year of Classes. I have one more class to go-Patricks Woods Button Lovers Brag Book in November. That makes a total of 7 class projects I will have to work on next year from 2013. (Not counting any other WIP's)
So I'm calling 2014 the Year of Retreats. Yes, so far I have 5 retreats scheduled next year
5 retreats! I am jealous. Hopefully I will make one with my guild. Glad you are back and I hope your computer doesn't give you too many fits.
All of your pieces are gorgeous! 5 retreats?! Wow! Lucky you! Good luck with the new computer.
All of your stitching looks great!! I agree about the computer!
Great projects and finishes! Five retreats? That could work... Hugs!
Aww i love al your projects..so cute ❤️❤️
Big hugs x
5 retreats??? I'm so jealous!!! Wish I could go to 1 :D They don't seem to be a UK thing... Love all your projects, you've been a busy bee :)
WOW...Your PS is looking fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. You should be proud of yourself. I don't think your raw edge applique is wrong minded, myself. that's what I'd do :)
A year of beautiful classes and next year a year of wonderful retreats!
I'm jealous...to be honest, but in a really good way! ;)
Wonderful update! Love the BBD stitching and your PS piece is sooo fabulous!
5 Retreats!! Woot!
What great progress on the Prairie Schooler alphabet. I've got to get mine out and work on it again.
Five retreats next year sounds wonderful!
Wonderful stitching! I wish I could go to 5 retreats in a year... good for you :-)
Congrats on the new computer, I am one of those people that get excited by new technology/toys!!!
The stitching looks great.
I'm jealous, five retreats!
Fantastic stitching! Wild Garden is vveerryy pretty!
5 retreats!! Wow! I have never been on one!
Love your BBD finish! Which 5 retreats?? I try to do one a year but haven't decided which one for 2014. Any suggestions??
SO green with envy--the button lovers book is on my bucket list--and to have five, count 'em five, retreats for stitching and hanging out with other stitchers--I am totally pea green!!
Love all your stitching. I prefer raw edge applique too. I just never got the hang of turned under to make it look good. I can't wait to see the alphabet finished. Congrats on the computer. They take awhile to adjust to.
Love that BBD wild garden finish, and your PS ABC is phenomenal! I bet you're excited about all those retreats you've signed up for in 2014! (Can I stowaway in your luggage?) ;-)
Wild Garden looks perfect! Congrats!
I would love to attend one treat ~ lucky you to get to five!! Your stitches are beautiful ~ I did that BBD piece this year as well and loved it! And yes, I agree, new does not, by any means, mean improved ~ good luck with the new computer!
