What To Do???

I am always wanting something to do while sitting in the doctor's office. What works for me is embroidering pages for a quiet book Click here! --just need to bring along a piece of fabric, needle, thread, and my binocular glasses. After having cataract surgery I have 20/20 vision but needed glasses size 6+ (which I could only find online) for doing counted cross stitching.

DIY Card Holders

I made of few of these way back in June 2008. My next project is making a few more (enlarging the pattern a bit and doing some hand embroidery to customize).

Another Attempt at Animating

This was done in Adobe Photoshop (Click here for tutorial) .

I NEED a tablet!

I am wanting to create my own animations and started to teach myself via the Internet back in 2015. Hey, I can't draw a circle using my mouse. I need a tablet that I can draw circles on using my finger.

Looking Forward to Home Grown Tomatoes!

OMG, it has been so long since I last posted!!!

First thing I have to do is learn to post all over again; hoping I don't have to customize my fonts and all that good stuff !!

I started my 151 Pokeman's counted cross stitch project back in April 2016. I have an old footstool that was made by my husband's grandmother.  It is well over one hundred years old so I thought it would be cool to cover with something from a much later era.  About one month ago I realized I calculated the size of the material INCORRECTLY. I am only half way through cross-stitching the pattern and I am on page 16 of 30 pages. That is what I need to cover my footstool and then I will not have enough fabric to finish the other 14 pages. If I purchase the same amount of material I can start with page 15 and continue on to page 30 and cover my circular piano stool with the second half of the 151 Pokeman's and then some. I will be posting pictures soon!
