Computer Issues an update and my late ISHW post

Welcome to my new followers, thank-you.
I wish to thank all my followers today without you I would have no one to show what I have done.
My Husband just says thats nice, men oh well, they do not get excited about crafting like I do.
I had the pleasure of joining a Round Robin put on over at, June has a lovely blog site stop over and take a look.
I recieved a lovely package from Heather from Ireland, sime threads, a lenght of fabric which will be stitched for a small box, and a beautiful Lifes A Stitch  by Lizzie Kate, 7x7 square, I love this I am going to make a needlebook with this, the fabric is a beautiful dyed piece. Heather is at, stop on over and give a visit she just became a Grandmother, she is so lucky.
This is waht she sent me.
Next up is a piece from The Spring Fling that Stitchville USA put on last spring, this is a Drawn Thread  patter you could do a picture sampler or a sewing pocket I choise the sewing  pocket, I am almost done I stitched on this for my ISHW and did get loads done I have maybe two hours left, then I can stitch it up into a pocket.
May I Present

The picture looks kind of strange I just could not get  a great picture.

Next is a bracelet I did at a class at Becka Beads in Maple Lake Mn.
I plan on taking it again with the Minnesota Needlework Guild on august 12, there are so far 5 of us going, we have a week long retreat in Buffalo Mn. I donot have to travel far just 16 miles wow what a treat, I look forward to this retreat now, this will be my second time, the people are so wonderful loads of visiting sharing and stitching.
 This is the bracelet it comes in 5 or 6 colors.

So sorry about the crappy picture I tried several places to get a good picture this was the best very cloudy today.

Today I shall try and finish my Drawn Thread Sampler, wish me luck.

Happy stitching to all.

Ha ha--my husband and sons are the same way! They pretend to admire my finishes, but I think they just want dinner cooked for them :) The feedback from fellow stitchers really does keep us going!

Everything looks great, Catherine--happy August to you!

Hello Catherine,
I had to take a lot of things off of my blog. Don't know why but it does much better now. I hope you get yours fixed. Everything is so lovely.
Mini hugs, Conny
