Job frustrations….

It’s been a week and a half since Maryann told me she didn’t need my services; and yet today makes the second time she’s called me at the last minute to watch the kids at 7am because one of them was sick. I see little point in looking for a new job if she’s going to keep relying on me as a last minuet babysitter. Hunting for a new job isn’t going well either.

On the stitching front: I’ve managed to complete Guinn and the twisted rope border on Arthur’s side. I hope to start the twisted rope border on Guinn’s side tonight. I’ve decided not to work on any of my other WiPs as I really need to get Camelot Sampler finished. I’ll post an update as soon as the other border is finished.

Well that’s all for today’s blog blurb.

Re-Vamped WiPs Pages....

I can't believe it's 2am! But that's how long it took me (all day Saturday) to re-vamp and re-upload my WiPs pages. Check 'em out [<-- See side bar ] The information is a lot easier to read now and the pictures are better organized.

I updated The Berlin Woolwork Sampler page and the Summer's End page with my latest pictures as well. So now that means I'm officially going to start working on Camelot Sampler, after I grab a few hours of sleep that is. ( LOL )

One last thing: On Monday the 6th I was told that after Friday the 10th my babysitting services will no longer be needed now that school is out for the summer. Yep, my sister has this bright idea that she can sign her kids up for all day summer fun camp through the local elementary school.

Well I guess that 3 months of free time for stitching won’t be a bad thing.

Motif #13 DONE!!!!!!

Just a little note to pat myself on the back. I got motif #13 of the Woolwork Sampler done today at 8 pm. Wahooooo!!!

I can officially put it on the bottom of the WiP pile. The picture is a bit washed out and blurry, but that's because I was in a hurry and took it outside in the bright setting sun. BTW, it's the one that looks like a 2-band woven ribbon at the bottom of the picture.

Well that's all for now. I probably won't be writing anything until I show some progress on my Camelot Sampler.

EzBoard Attacked….

As many of you know by now EzBoard was attacked and whole forum postings and Boards were lost on Memorial Day, Mon. 30th. I found out about this on Thursday but didn’t realize the extent of the damage done until today when I finally had a chance to visit my 4 main boards and 6 others that I occasionally check. It really pisses me off that some ass hole decided it would be fun to destroy over a years worth of posts, Chest Funds for various boards, membership access, and God knows what else.

From reading the EzBoard Announcement/Information Board for their daily updates on the situation and reading between the lines, it looks like an inside job. Probably someone who was recently fired who decided to take out his/her revenge. The systems that were attacked clearly needed special key codes that only an employee would have access to. Anyway that’s my theory on the matter, and I hope they fry the ass hole when they catch them.

I was the victim of a lost membership to the Aion Needlecrafts Board. And when I finally got re-registered and checked the stitchalong forums I post in Le Marquoir d’Annick Abrial, and French Mystery Sampler, all the postings were gone. It’s been 5 days since the attack and looks like the backup information was lost as well. Since no one else has listed them I re-posted the chart links in both forums.

In the Camelot Sampler Forum on the Teresa Wentzler Board all the posts from April ’04 to the present are gone. Granted there wasn’t much chatter in the forum but the loss of the Gallery thread with everyone’s finished Cam Sam’s is a big disappointment. I haven’t checked the Christmas Forum yet but I can pretty much gather that they’ll be missing threads in there too.

What’s really depressing to think about is the collection of forum threads that held found errors for TW’s charts. I hope the moderators for those forums have that information saved on their home computers so it can be restored. I can be thankful that I decided to save the forum posting under TWBB Stitcher Spotlight when Teresa was featured back in August ‘04 because that thread is gone too.

I’ll be getting back to motif #13, of the spot sampler, after I post this and I’ll work on it the rest of the day. I’m still hoping to get it finished and a pic posted to my WiPs page on my web site tomorrow.

That’s all for today's depressing Blog Blurb.

Was bored today....

at work and went blog bumming
through several stitching blogs and found this
quiz link. Being a Harry Potter fan I had to try
it out.

Your Harry Potter Alter Ego Is...?

I was a bad little stitcher for the last two days. I haven't done any work on my spot sampler, which means that motif #13 probably won't be done by this Sunday. I'm not going to write anymore in this blog until I get that motif finished!!!

Thus end-th another blog blurb.
