Did You Miss Me?

Yes, I've been out of touch all week but not because I was having loads of fun. My computer caught a virus! I doubt it was H1N1, but who knows! So, we're back in business now and rarin' to go.

Last week-end was the Northwest Stitchers get-together in Portland. Oh Oh Oh we had soooo much fun! A stunning display of finishes! Wonderful food (thank you Vicki, Donna & Randy). Loads of laughter! Stash buying and of course, lots of stitching. I have a standing bed reservation with Vicki. Ten of us spent the night and be sure, not everyone got beds.

Tracy of Ink Circles was there & I got her new ornament "Reindeer Games" as well as last year's ornament. Tracy's daughter, Hannah, and her mom, Cindy were there too. Such fun gals!

I stitched a bit on my Heritage Sampler, my Herz von Inge from Marquoir, and another reindeer ornament. Will I ever finish anything? I'm the Queen Of Starts!

I've been working a bit each evening on the Heritage Sampler. You'd think I'd want to finish some of these ornaments. Nope! I shall remain ornament finishing challenged this year. I'd better start learning and experimenting soon. I've joined two ornament groups for next year. The Bride's Tree and The Little House Needleworks. Yikes!

Well folks, this posting is going to remain photoless. I'm too tired to bother. Have been on here most of the day trying to catch up, etc. Hope you're all getting ready for Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for. Bye for now...


  1. Darn computer viruses. If people spend more time in honest endeavors than coming up with crap the world would be such a better place.

    It sound like the get-together was lots of fun!

  2. Sorry to hear about your computer virus. It has always stayed a secret to me how creating and spreading a virus can be so much fun. for those hackers.
    I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures of your recent stitching. Must have been a lot of fun to attend the retreat.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment... I just love heearing from you!
