I'm still here!

Hi all! Bet you've been wondering where I've been? It's a long story and no, I haven't had some tragic accident or anything horrible like that, so no need to worry there. I had some new fences erected last week at home and while this was being done the fencing guys have accidentally managed to cut my phone line! You could imagine the horror of it. My home phone is dead (luckily I have a mobile) and the worst of it is my Internet access is down because that also runs through my phone line. I found out today from my service provider that it may be another week before it's rectified. So here I am at my sister's place tonight, using her computer, so I could do a post on my blog to let you all know what was happening.

I'm missing my blogging and finding out what everyone is doing, so I hope you're all creating wonderful projects out there. I can happily say that I've finished French Heart. It was so enjoyable and I'm so pleased with how it's finished up. I've been taking progress photos so when I'm back online properly I'll post some pics for you to see.

I've now started on one of my French designs called 'Chocolat'. It's done using one over one which I'm amazed I'm even attempting. It's driving me up the wall in some parts but I'm persevering with it. I've been asking myself 'what were you thinking' when deciding to go with the over one, but since it's not a big piece I thought I'd rise to the challenge.

Thanks for your comments lately and I'm sorry to have stopped midway through my progress on French Heart. I was so enjoying keeping you up to date with it. I just wanted to drop by to let you know I was ok and hopefully I'll be back in a week or so. I've been suffering withdrawal symptoms with the lack of Internet access and I'm looking forward to catching up with you when I return. Have fun with what you're working on and be sure I'll be back again soon!

Happy stitching everyone and take care!

Hi Jane! It's good to hear from you! I'm so sorry about your internet. I hate it when that happens! I'll be looking forward to your pictures! :)

Dang! I'd be super miffed if my phone or cable was cut, lol! Chocolat is a really pretty design and I can't wait to see what you're going to do with it!

Oh that's so bad, Jane. I'd be lost without my internet. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. Definitely have been missing your blog updates.
