Reconnected

Hello Dear Friends! My computer crashed shortly after my last post.......we now have a new hard drive and I'm getting things reloaded (a rather inconvenient process, sigh.) Thankfully, we haven't lost too much! I never realized how addicted I am to the computer, LOL ;) Nor did I realize exactly how much email has become the primary form of contact. Especially with the kiddos...school updates and newsletters, activity schedules, etc. All email, all the time. So, I've felt quite disconnected the last two weeks. Oh, hubby's been checking the email at work and I've been stopping by the library every few days to check it there~~but it's really not the same.

But I tell you, I sure can get a lot of other stuff done without the computer to distract me, LOL!!! I stitched this little floss tag, not quite sure who I was going to send it to. Then it came to me that Carolyn could use a little "pick-me-up".

fabric: 32ct "staci-dyed" linen

fibers: Crescent Colours


The first photo is a little closer to the actual linen color, but it's still a bit darker IRL. I have much to catch up on and am having trouble with my google reader (hopefully I can get that straightened out soon!) I've been left a few bloggy questions that I'll try to get to next time around. Thank you to everyone who checked in to make sure I was ok~~didn't think anyone would even notice I was offline! Hugs everyone :)

I love your floss tag and your finishing! I certainly hear you about the time spent on the computer. I definitely know that I'd get a lot more done if I wasn't drooling over everyone's blogs! Great finish!

I'm glad all is well with you, and your family.

Your finished tag is just beautiful. If you don't mind me asking..Do you know where I could get instructions on hows to make a hole, like the one on your tag?
