Checking in... I have my ideas set but haven't started yet  Shocked I hope that I can finish one this weekend whilst watching the olympic action, and then finish the second one next weekend. Fingers crossed that nothing comes up. This month has already been too busy!!

I was cruising along with mine but was briefly side tracked.  Time to get back to it.  Pretty sure there are maybe 5 more stitches and then done!

Got the background done for 1 hoop and decided we need to see if we can attach some form of ________ to the back of it. I say "we" because my husband needs to help me. I showed him and explained what I want to do and he got all excited and pulled down his Geek Dad book... We might need to make one for him when we are done with Pugwash's.

oooh Jexx that sounds intriguing!

Pattern printed on stabalizer and ready to stitch! I really wish I could get some of that disolvable kind! Maybe next week when I go into town I'll find some! I only have the tear away kind which works when I'm to lazy to transfer a pattern but its still a pain!

I have come to the personal realization that I am a crazy slow stitcher LOL Tongue 4 nights of stitching (only about 7 or 8 hours) and Im not even half way done!  Tongue but its going to be worth it for sure <3

Thats why I always laugh when they say a medium size hoop that takes around 3 hours! If I did that I would be sending a very basic design! Wink

I'm going to start working on it properly (you know.. with thread) tomorrow or during the weekend, because I had to spend this evening setting up a tekkit server, which was new to me. Cheesy It's probably quite quick once you stop being overly paranoid. (technically it wasn't MY computer I was messing with, and gods know what I might break!)

whoawhoawhoa. do I detect another miner?

I'm really more of a lumberjack. And above all, a perpetual noob. Really haven't played much yet, as I have a short attention span and too much to do, so only just got the first macerator Cheesy And tonight I'm going to get some embroidery done, so Amir will be a bit peeved at me not being on the server (he rejected minecraft until I showed him 3 hours of yogscast tekkit... >_>) and the cat will be peeved because he's convinced it's been years since we were playing this morning... but if they leave me alone enough I'm hoping to get a fair amount done Cheesy

Hey Everybody!

I am sorry that I haven't been super fast with putting up who has sent and received recently but I have been at a cottage which I was told had a computer however the computer is actually from 1990 and most of the time I try and do something on it and it just freezes. Hopefully this message will post ( third attempt... argh..) but the good news is I will be back at home with a computer that actually functions tomorrow, so please be patient with me and I will document everything as soon as I get home!

I am so pleased that so many people are stitching like crazy out there... It's great that there are so many senders allready. I attempted to stitch while I was at the cottage but I got distracted by canoes and hikes and swimming!  I will have my work cut out for me when i get home!

deathbeforedishes, the pictures are now up in the gallery! I had a hard time because I had to resize them. They were to full of awesomeness, I guess. Smiley
