... it's been awhile.
I've been stitching a bit on my afghan - I have 4 squares almost completed so far, but I've opted to not do the braiding w/the type of cotton this is so I'm working on thread to replace those. I will be adding in the beads though. Later. Much later. I'm also thinking that this is going to be a good way to use up a lot of those Mira's that I own but probably wouldn't have stitched. You don't realize how big 100 X 100 squares are until you stitch a few different designs. :o)
I've been working more on crocheting though. I've started one granny square afghan - am about 2/3 of the way done with it - then I found another granny pattern I liked better and started that one about 2 weeks ago. I'm almost done with it. I really like it. I can't help it ... it's baseball season and I can crochet w/out paying as much attention as I must when I XS. I'll show pictures whenever I get around to either buying a new camera (I don't own one) or buy another printer/scanner.
I had to buy another 'puter. My old one died about a year ago (virus) so I had to mind wipe the entire thing. It worked fine until a few weeks ago, another virus and it just got old so I had to take it out to the back 40 and put 'er down. I cried. Apparently no one liked my old 'puter 'cuz no one showed for the funeral.
Plus side: I got a brand new, reeeally fast 'puter w/a big ol' flat screen and lots o' stuff to play with.
Bad side: It has Vista. And all the issues that came with Vista. But MS is phasing out XP.
Bad side: Vista works with every single Brother All-in-one EXCEPT mine. Just will not accept it.
Bad side: No printer/scanner = no photo uploads. At all. Or print outs. I have folders FULL of XS patterns I find on the web and print out. Now I have bookmarks with loads o' stuff to print out when I get a printer.
Other than that I've been doing quite a bit of reading of blogs and books. Busier at work as well, more people out with the weather. This is going to be the busiest 2 weeks of our year with our Rose Festival starting today. We already have ships coming in so there are sailors out meeting all the single girls. :Sigh:
I love watching what you ladies are making. :o)
Have a lovely weekend.
