getting back to normal




Hi There!
I think the computer is getting back to normal. My husband has been working on it more every night. Today will be a test. I have not tried to use the scanner yet, so this will test one more of the issues! I scanned 2 of my WIP pieces to upload. They scanned ok, now to find them to upload here!
It has been a very busy week. My normal Wed. babysitting ended up being Tues. & then extra on Wed. Plus my normal Monday babysitting! No wonder I feel I haven't stitched much!!!
I am busily working on my model for the most part. I feel I am making good progress, but I fear not fast enough.
Sat., I had 2 other girls from my state over to stitch. We are all doing ByGoneStitches Quaker Christmas. I have attached a picture of mine. I worked on it that day and then put it away.
I am also attaching a picture of my Beatrix Potter SAL piece.
I did not get to work on my HAED last week. Maybe tomorrow!!
I will be home all day today for sure, because my husband had to take my car. The brakes in his car went out on his way home last night. Thankfully, it was a hose & there was enough fluid to make it home safely. So, I guess we know his project for this weekend!
As I was taking my pictures & scans this morning, he asked how many WIP I had. He could think of at least 6 or 7. We counted & I have 8. I told him that he knows I will finish them all. I just have to concentrate the bulk of my stitching time on the model until it is done!
I hope everyone is having a good week. I think the entire USA is being hit with unusual weather. Stay safe where ever you are! Thank you so much for visiting & for your kind comments. They are SO MUCH appreciated!

Hey girl!! You've really made beautiful progress on these 3 wips!
So glad the computer's working better. Mine seems to crash if I'm on French blogs or sometimes on emails. I'm afraid to ask if you've tried my blog today:(
So glad your dh made it home safely after the brakes went out!

Your model is looking so wonderful! I had not looked closely at the design before, and just realized what an interesting design it really is.

Congratulations on your cute finish, too!
