Daffy's Stitchy Friends

I'm surfing...

...the web on my new laptop! Rick said I needed a laptop so I could do my stitchy stuff anywhere. I think he really meant I was hogging the computer. We ordered a very nice espresso brown one from Dell and it was delivered yesterday. I loves it! This was an anniversary pressie.

I've spent the last two afternoons setting up all my sites and even making an RSS reader for my blogs. I still need to move PCStitch Pro over and my music but all my cross stitch pictures are here! I really like the feed reader; it will be so much easier to see everyone's updates. I was pleased to find almost everyone has feeds turned on...I think only 4 or 5 in my blogroll don't. I also have my own desktop wallpaper (Supernatural) my own screensaver (cross stitch photos, lol) and my stitchy friends aren't going to IM Rick, thinking it's me. Yes, no more sharing!

I have been stitching...just not too much blogging, lately. (The thought of the laptop coming soon somehow put me off the computer for a bit.) I should have a new finish to share soon!

It's our wedding anniversary!
Rick and I were married 23 years ago today.

Happy anniversary, sweetheart...I love being married to you.

I'm a winner!

Rachael, Jan and Lisa have all given me the Kreative Blogger award!

AND... Clare and Sandra have given me the Brillante Weblog award!

How cool is that? Thank you ladies, I am honored.

I am also supposed to award this on to others but I'm going to party-poop. As Kendra said "I'm an award-winning party-pooper!" Trust me...if it's in my blogroll it is well worth reading.

I have read I won the drawing on Pumpkin's blog. I dunno what I've won but I'm promised to like it! How much winning can one girl take? Thanks to everyone for reading my blog, your comments and for blogging yourselves. Reading your posts makes each day complete!

Edited...Sandra informed me she nominated me for the Brillante Weblog on her July 19th post. The funny thing about this is...I read that post. I completely skipped over the fact that was MY name listed and MY blog awarded.

I'm as daft as they come, dear readers; it must be that blond hair!!! Thanks, Sandra!

A bit crazy

So sorry I've not posted in the last two weeks. I'm kinda going through some personal stuff right now that has me crazy stressed out. Those dear friends interested are welcome to email to find out what's up but I'm not going to bore everyone with the details. I have been stitching like mad to keep my sanity and will show the results as soon as I can. As for right now; I'd rather be in...

Gnome freebie

Here is a sweet little gnome pattern that Jessie has created. I've played around with printing the pattern out, scanning & saving it so it comes with the key. It's a little more work but having a key with the floss colors listed is invaluable! I must speak with Jess about choosing non-similar symbols when designing...she has all circular ones here and that can be really annoying~can't it?

I really wanted to stitch this one up before posting it but I've been neglecting my WIP's. I hope you can find a use for this cute little guy. If you happen to stitch this, please send me a picture!
