Computer Crashing and Stitching, of course.

My computer crashed this week, so now all the websites that I had saved and favourite places are gone. DH didn't quite understand when I said that I needed a moment to grieve. Just thinking of all those hours gone, poof.

On the up side, a friend from Adelaide was up for a conference and so we got together Wednesday night and it was so much fun, a bit too much fun as I couldn't take DS2 to swimming at 4.30am the next morning. Sorry Coach.

I would also like to thank Mary, Terri, Leah and Babs for your continued support in leaving comments. I know there are others of you as well but these four ladies are my most frequent commentators and so I would just like to give you a special mention.

Now onto stitching, this first one is a freebie, I think...I have been trying to find the pattern as I did do it a while back. So if you are really interested keep popping back as I will edit the page and have a link to the designer. It is going to be made into a pin cushion and that is why there isn't much margin. The ornaments are a couple of my latest Halloween additions that I bought from the 'Nightmare before Christmas' range, they are just too cute, in a Halloween sort of way.

This is one of the Stacy Nash club stitches that I have managed to do while by the pool watching DS2 do his laps. I am now on the second one, but the third has already arrived...

I went to a small local craft and gift fair the other week and when I say small I mean small. After paying my entrance fee I spent around 15 minutes going to all the stalls and I was finished, that included the time buying these sweet bobbins. So I thought I had better go around again just incase I had missed something, but I hadn't! It was worth it though as I do love my bobbins.

DH is in the U.S. this week so I have sent him off with an empty suit case so that if he sees any good Halloween decorations he can squeeze them in...boogidy, boogied, wahhahha.
He gets back on our Wedding Anniversary and I have booked us, including the boys into the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' night at the cinema's. We won't dress up this year as it is the first time our boys will see the movie and experience the antics but hopefully they will enjoy it enough to go along next year and join in on the fun.

Have a safe week,
