I have added a new link to our blog called keeping track It is on the right hand side on top ... It is where we can keep track of send off dates as well as sends and recieveds ... I hope we all can add to the list our progresses, as it will be easier for me to keep track... SO If you finish your 3 ladies, and send or recieve, post there also if you have not gotten your biscornu please let me know... if you have recieved it - please post a pic , we would all like to see it ! I will be adding to the keeping track link this will be easier than having to log in to a different site for this :) Laura

When using metallics, you may find it helpful to use the product, "Thread Heaven" ... it keeps the filaments together for ease of stitching. If you do not have this product on hand you can also try to slightly wet the thread, it seems to help abit as well. Blending filament can be very tricky, but you did a great job, Pixie!

I'm Back! Again!

Well, after all that trouble with my hard drive, our broadband modem went out on me. It took almost 2 weeks of annoying calls to tech support before we figured out the problem and replaced the modem. I thought I would go crazy without the internet! But hopefully nothing else will go wrong. By the way, I got the next lady in the mail today and thanks for the calendar, Pixie. I will definitely put it to good use!

Google either has changed their site or I have to do something different with mine... I had to juggle to add a new post as you could not scroll down completely on the customize page. I had to move all of the links from one side to the next till I could see the blog links for stitchers ... Hope they change this back soon...That is really inconvenient. Will post pics today... I promise. Andrea, thank you for all of the info.. and I would love to meet to go to the new sewing place:) This time I will bring my camera too... and hopefully we have a gorgeous day :) those days are coming for sure :) Thank you for the invite :) Laura

Laura, My mom and I went to the Ashly Home Store in Burlington today and found basically the same couch we saw at Fred Meyer, for $60 less. It's a different color, but we weren't sure we really wanted a dark brown sofa. Anyway, they had a matching double-armed chaise for $406. Guess what? It's less expensive than a chair and ottoman, so we ordered it as well. Yay! I'm excited. I thought I would let you know, so that you have another place to search. The sales person we talked to was Susan - she was super-nice, and I have no problem referring people to her. The furniture outlet place I told you about had some single-armed chaises (one was tiger-striped), so it depends what you're looking for. The other thing I wanted to tell you is that there is a huge store called "Sewer's Dream Fabric Outlet". We didn't go inside, but the name of the store makes me want to go back! Maybe once I have a working vehicle we could head up there? I promised the slightly-bigger child a red pillow for the new couch (long story), so I will eventually be in search of the perfect piece of red fabric. Andrea

I've finished my Lady round 2

Should I just send it? Pixie, are you ready to start working on another one? Be advised, there will be notes involved - you may have noticed by now, I'm a copious note-taker on my charts, and I had a little issue of the colors looking one way under my regular light, and then I switched to the other side of the couch and the other lamp, and saw how it was really supposed to be - let me just say that I'm used to "symbol charts", and ummm, well, I hope the notes explain everything. Let me know if it's confusing. I'm sure you will make it work. :) Back to my Egyptian bag until Round 3 arrives! Andrea


To the right you will see the logo I made today for Keeping Track... The same as this one, but it will link to the blog itself. If you would like to join my PIF you can do so here!

Vonna`s squares recieved and a finish!

I will post pics tomorrow after I get my scanner and camera in place. One thing I havent done since I moved :) BUT I got the cutest squares from Vonna today :) Funny enough they are the same cute froggies that I made for Rebekah :) I suppose she knew that I am not so good at stitching the same piece twice, but that I just loved it so much that I was going to :)... Vanessa, can you imagine :) (lol) It is froggie time... Will explain later :) I also have a finish to share tomorrow! I finished the Plaid Pear that I was working on as well ... it is a sampler and I love it. It is great :)! I am going to hang it in my new kitchen .... :) I have 5 patterns from this designer, so ... I am going to stitch them one at a time and send each used pattern to one of you :) If you get one I hope you like it ... and if you wanna trade them when you are finished... that is fine too lol SO ... one person will be recieving the plaid pear :) Laura
