I know I've not posted in a while. I had surgery last week, just a day stay. Unfortunately it didn't work out for me, and I will have to go back for a more invasive procedure in the near future. I won't know about that till after this Thursday, when I see my doctor again. Okay, so enough about that!
Since I had a few days off from work - - I stitched! YAY! I kept moving on Lil Blue since he was on the rods.
Good Lord! That ear and eye took me forever! I don't think there are 2 stitches next to each other that are the same color anywhere in that ear and eye! Sheeesh! I am a little disappointed with the colors. It doesn't seem as bright/bold as the picture. I am using the recommended DMC floss. It just looks washed out to me when compared to the original artwork. What do you think?
I also have an update to Goblin Tree, but I'll save it for later.
One more thing. On Friday my Big Beautiful Dell Laptop died. The reason I call it that is #1 Because I LOVE it! and #2 It is giant! Dell doesn't even make it anymore, what a shame. I really use it as a desktop, I don't carry it around, it weights 36 lbs.! Regardless, I love it! So after 2 hours on the phone with Dell Friday morning, they sent me a box (DHL) to return it to them for repair. I got the box yesterday and I called for pick up today. I am on my old, old, old Dell for the time being, so things are slow. This PC is about 8 years old! That's like Dog Years in PCs!
So, since I am without my BB-Laptop (Big Beautiful), and this PC is so OLD, and I will be recuperating for 6 weeks after my surgery soon (no lifting), AND my Birthday is Sunday... I called Dell yesterday and ordered myself a light tiny laptop. An XPS M1330, Intel Core 2 Duo T8100(2.1GHz, 800Mhz, 3M L2 Cache), it weights less that 5 lbs.! Isn't it darling!!? It actually has as much speed and power as the big one! WOO HOO I can't wait to get it! I know... I'm a geek head. I can't help it! So I will be all ready when I return from the hospital. I'll have my stitching right next to the bed, and my wireless little wonder handy to keep up with the boards, emails and such!
