Crossing my fingers and knock wood…

Today my OEM copy of Windows 7 came in the mail. I’ve been told by a techie friend of mine that because I’m going from Windows XP to 7 I'll be re-installing my system, probably from scratch… Goddess help me I hope not… but just incase, it might be a couple of weeks before I’m able to post here again…. Yea I’ve got that much stuff to re-install. So you’ll either see a stitch update from me by this weekend or not.

In the mean time…. Happy Samhain to all my Pagan friends and Happy Halloween to everyone else!!!!!

Stitchy Finish - Summer's End - and another French Mystery SAL

Summer's End, originally uploaded by Jan J..

Name: Summer's End
Type: Counted Cross Stitch
Finished Chart Size: 17" x 17" (43.18cm x 43.18cm) on 14ct. Fiddlers Cloth
Leaflet/Kit #: E-mail PDF Chart
Designer/Publisher: Pamela Kellogg, Kitty and Me Country Crafts / CraftSoft Inc. © 2004
Finished: October 23, 2009
Misc. Info. : A Stitch-Along Project in 4 parts. Created for Pam's bulletin board group, at Started September 2004. I plan to finish this as a pillow. The french knots on the butterfly and red berries have been replaced with Mill Hill glass seed beads - #00479 & frosted glass beads - # 62023.

For anyone who still drops in from time to time, I finally got around and finished a WiP, Summer's End by Pam Kellogg. Believe it or not I managed it in 5 years 1 month... LOL

I already have another to take it's place. A new free SAL is being offered by Annick Abril – Mon Arbre de Vie - “My Tree of Life" or simply "Tree of Life" Look under 'Mon Marquior' on the main page.

It's in 27 parts starting this October. It's a French site, so if you don't speak it you'll need to Google translate it. According to the information on her message board. The chart size is 411 wide x 430 high.

Because she uses her own hand dyed floss. The best I can do is go with DMC Color Variations floss (Art. 417) as the closest match.

While I'm looking for a new job, I thought working on my projects would keep me from getting depressed. And who knows I might get a few off the WiP list and onto the Finished list.
