Back on line and catching up

Isn't it horrid when you have no internet connection? We were offline most of the time for just over a week and with no telephone so I was feeling very cut off. Occasionally we had a brief connection and were able to download emails but that was even more frustrating as all I got was little snippets of blogs, needing to go online to read the rest. However, touching wood and crossing fingers all has now been well for a couple of days and so it is time to do some catching up.

First of all I have not shown you my July swap ATC's.

Here is the beautiful organza rose that I received from Kate

And this is my flower themed ATC that I sent to Julie

It was also my TAST fly stitch sample

Here is my pink BOM for August

called 'Hill and Valley'.

There has been a lot of secret stitching going on so no pictures but when not doing that I have been working on my August crazy block which now looks like this.

Taking my time for the last couple of days has been a small visitor and her parents. Here she is at a local funfair yesterday - always happy to pose for a photo!!

So that's all for now - lots of blog reading to catch up on so see you soon.

We've been having internet connection problems, too, and it's a real pain! Glad you're back on line. Love your projects, esp. Your crazy quilt block. What a stunner! What a sweet little visitor! She looks so much like my sister did at that age. XO

Hello Lin,

I can handle no internet it is the worry of having no phone that bugs me. Glad to see things are alright now. Love the small embroidery pieces, both are stunning pieces. Love the crazy patchwork too. How lucky to have a small visitor, she does look so happy.

Happy days.
