New beginnings...

It's been a wild ride lately!  I've had to get a new computer, and it has taken me a while to get used to it.  Unfortunately many of the programs I enjoyed using on my old computer couldn't be transferred to my new one so sadly I can't do some of the same things I could before.  It's going to take some getting used to!  LOL  There are some things that are better, so I guess it's 50/50.  It's hard for this old dog to get used to new tricks!

I'm finally feeling better, thank you to all of you who expressed their concern.  I missed going to Virginia to see the needlework exhibit with some other stitchers, but I would have only slowed them down.  Between being sick and having my computer die I wasn't able to answer many emails, so I apologize to those who left comments.  Thank you for understanding!

I did get a bit of stitching done.  I finished Red White & Blue by the Cricket Collection.  I love this pattern and looked for it for quite a while before I found it on sale somewhere.  I made it to frame and donate to an auction for Equines for Freedom.  This is a program for service men and women suffering from PTSD.  There will be a fundraiser in August for this program.  It took a while to find all the pieces for framing, but I finally gathered it all together so check back soon, I hope to get it framed in the very near future.


I also worked on this pattern that I have had sitting around for a few years.  This is Bunnies Galore by Brittercup Designs.  I also picked up a frame for this the other night too.  I'll show it again once it's framed.


Next time I hope to show pictures of all the Market Day things I gathered.  Hopefully the framing will be done, and I'll have more stitched on my Wednesday projects (WIP Wednesday).  I hope everyone is enjoying some spring weather.  Our spring flowers all fainted under the snow and cold weather we had...but there are still some signs of life out there in the garden.  Let's hope our hyacinths come up ok, I just love the way they smell!  Off to get some stitching done....right after I enjoy some Rita's ice cream....I sure did miss them while they were closed for the winter!

Your stitchery is so pretty. Glad you are feeling better. I totally understand your computer issues. Hubby has been nursing mine along, but I still don't have access to my personal e-mail. I am sure that if/when I change computers I am going to be quilt lost for some time.

Beautiful stitching. How generous of you to make that gorgeous heart for charity. I hope you make lots of money. Get well soon.

What a great project to donate, very patriotic. And I love Brittercup bunnies, very cute spring stitching.

Glad you're feeling better and lovely stitching on both. Very good of you to stitch the piece for donation, it's a great choice.

I hate having to change computers! We are currently running 3 different systems at home and not everything is compatible with everything else!
Nice work on the stitching, it's so worthwhile stitching for charity too.

So glad you are feeling better! I know how you feel with new computer programs. I get crazy each time they give me a new updated program at work, but after a while, I love the new and improved features and would never go back! You'll get the hang of it and then you won't know how you survived without it.
