Today, Fed Ex delivered my beloved laptop back to me. I am rather impressed with the service I received from ASUS. I shipped it the Wednesday after the crash. It arrived at ASUS in California the following Tuesday (there was a holiday in there), made it onto the workbench that same day, and was boxed back up and given to FedEx that night. The laptop has a new hard drive so I am now having to reinstall everything and I did lost some of the pictures from earlier this year.
Without further ado, here is what has been going on:
I worked on a Mill Hill kit that I am going to send to my cousin who is recovering from surgery.
I love the colors on him, even though I'm not really a Santa person.
I also made some progress on the Nativity ornament but I do not have a picture up yet.
I found the perfect purple backing fabric at SCRAP and I used some dark green ribbon with gold accent to glue around the edge of it for a finished look.
I also won a giveaway from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. It included the chart, the floss, the bells and the buttons. I am a bit backlogged with Christmas but I will have to get some fabric for it so I can stitch it. I love the pattern and was really hoping to win it.
And last, I want to show how Zoé has really grown up. Here is a picture of her modeling her new My Little Pony outfit
I also got a Cuisinart hand mixer from my husband. I am going to try to make an angel food cake again. I'll let you know how it goes. Third time's the charm, right?
