I'm back!

So after a few frustrating days of trying to repair the old computer and not getting anywhere with it and then going back and forth with DH over what to get for a new PC - I'm finally back online at home. We ended up with a new hp. We had good luck with the one hp we owned a few years back, so we were pretty happy with our selection. When it came down to going to the store and actually getting it, we were able to make a major purchase without a lot of angst and arguing, which is a big deal for us! :)

Anyway, I've been doing some more stitching on Silkwood Manor and it is coming, but not nearly as quickly as I'd like it too. Here's a pic. I have to have it in the frame by the end of the night July 15th in order to drop at the fair for judging, so it is gonna be real close even with doing the framing myself.

Stitch! Stitch like the wind! LOL

Congrats on the new computer. I hate getting new computers. Just a hassle all around, and I don't like spending all the money. I hope this one works out great for you.

Jenny,
What lovely work. I hope you do get it finished in time for the fair. I've got a soft spot for houses.
