Back On Deck, Finally!

Does a week without computer seem like an eternity to you?!
For me, that's a yes & a no. I really missed my blog reading, but got some great things done here at home.

Our computer monitor decided it had lived a happy earthly life, & took itself to the Gadget Graveyard In The Sky quite unexpectedly on Monday...
mrHS bought a new monitor, but golly it was so big... like sitting an arms length from the telly! So back it went, & we settled on a smaller one that's a much better size.

I've not been terribly inspired or productive with my sewing... cross stitching has been keeping my hands occupied in the quiet times... & a Christmas stitchery too...

Don't you love my needle-minder... being it's my favourite (&blog!) flower of Hibiscus, I couldn't resist... it's magnetic... cute, huh?!


I'm loving to stitch this 'Christmas Blessings Star', a pre-printed linen from Rosalie Quinlan Designs...


I've also worked on some EPP which I can share in a few days... I hope you'll Piece Yourself Together! along with me on Tuesday... after all, it will be the 2nd Tues of the month!

We've had a good 3 days of almost continuous rainy-pitter-patter... great for the gardens... however the accompanying humidity has made it really hard to get any washing dry, even under my patio... not good when my laundry is as big as a matchbox & the Wash Me pile is growing! But oh the rain is so very welcome.

I hope you all have a great weekend & I look forward to seeing what everyone's been up to!
Thanks for popping by

I have never had a needle minder but they seem to be popping up on a lot of blogs lately. Computers take up an awful lot of time so I guess you've have had an opportunity to catch up on other things.........but a week is a long time! Good to see you back.

I never know how to react to breaks without blogland - I miss the contact but...! Good to see you up and running again though :-) Your Christmas stitchery is looking great - I love how everything is shaped to accomodate the star. I bought Mum a magnetic needle minder - and wished I'd got one for myself at the same time! Yours is so pretty.
