Hello, Hello!

Let's hope I can talk to all you, Dear Friends! Yes, it has been a long time - lots of things have been happening and I am now being challenged with a new computer who knows lots of different things to what I do, so I will try to post while I can - please let me, lol!
 
Oh, I know seems like the text is centred, too - never mind! Now to what'sbeen happening - I went to a retreat at Toodyay last weekend, still a bit sore and sorry for myself, but it was really lovely and I did get some sewing done. Lovely company, hospitality comfort and food, couldn't be better!

The block above is one of the two blocks I have done -what a Dummy, it has been the only pic I could resize and that took me ages to jag - it is a 16" block using templates by Sue Ross. It is quite intricate and requires a little patience, but I am really happy with it.

Of course like everyone else, I am busy finishing Christmas pressies -  a lot of fun, just wish I wasn't so pressed for time! My New Years resolutions will be a veeery long list for 2012. I'm so looking forward to moving forward and hopefully enjoying every little thing - I must have been a very wicked girl in my previous life!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend - stitching, enjoying festivities! I will show you my new car soon - lots of good fun buying new things, but very time-consuming!

Our computer fried its motherboard three weeks ago and we just got a new one, as well. Challenges..oh my goodness! Does yours have a mind of its own and you can't find where you left anything or is it just me ;) Lovely to hear from you again and see all of your pretties!!!

Anne said...

Ah, gotta love technology. :0) Hope your soreness goes away very soon, so you can get back to enjoying life again properly. Your block is very eye catching, well done :0). I am refusing to believe Christmas is almost here - not in the groove at all yet, but will have to be soon I guess.

I love your block. I am expecting a new computer to come my way soon. At least my son has set it up for me and it will speak my language. Other than that ... who knows? I have a new "smart phone" that is way smarter than I am. Horrors!

Shari said...

Your block looks great! But all those pieces. Very patient. Hope to see you Tuesday.

I'm glad you got to go to a retreat. You definitely deserve a treat! Sorry about the computer and the soreness. Hopefully you'll be feeling back to normal very soon, and you and the new computer will get used to each other too. I love your quilt block! So pretty!
