More Celtic Band Sampler....

I decided to keep on with forward progress tonight, and since I would love to finish this soon (for two reasons - to be able to go and frame and enjoy it, and to clear a spot in my rotation), I worked away on the blackwork band of Celtic Band Sampler while watching the Red Sox game tonight... boy, my fabric is so overexposed in these photos lately... I will try to get a better picture of this fabric soon... I am starting to feel, at long last, like I am finally making some progress on this sampler - yay!!

Well, my brand new Dell laptop arrived today :-) Mike spent the evening setting it up for me. Now I won't have to keep struggling with losing power in my laptop any longer (my old one has a problem with the pin where the adaptor plugs in - my brother now owns it and will get it fixed). I also had a nice lunch with my Mom today. She came by my office to drop off a belated birthday gift (a wonderful bird feeder that fits right into the window and the cats can see the birds while the birds can't see the cats - had one like it that a bear or deer tore down last year... this one will go in the spare bedroom window on the second floor so animals cannot tear it down)... it was a good afternoon :-)

I ordered this new Seven Seas 32 ct lugana from Silkweaver today... I plan to use this for the new Mirabilia chart, Mermaids of the Deep Blue... it almost looks like it was made for this design :-)

I am glad there is strong interest in the Celtic Ladies SAL - I will go through my emails this week and put a list together for everyone to know who is in the group.... I hope that Becky decides to stay with us...

Red Sox 5, Royals 2...

Oh wow, I love the blackwork on Band Sampler. That is the prettiest bit so far in my view.

You got your laptop! Wooo hooo!

You'll have to take a photo of the bird feeder - I can't work out quite what this feeder looks like :o)

Your blackwork is so nice. Detail stitching with blackwork is one thing I enjoy .... when I'm in the mood to do it.

Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving comments. Letting my daughter go off to college was exciting + emotionally painful for me. She & my husband are moving boxes into her dorm room now. She wants to study French & take classes for Dietician. Odd combination -- but it will work for her.
