After Sunday’s incident Jerry pointed out to me that Mercury is in retrograde. Yes, the man has TWO PhD’s and still knows about such things. I may call him doctor squared but who am I to argue. As he pointed out to me “Computers and other processes that work with information may experience crashes, unexpected failures.” So I can blame it on the stars!
Thankyou everyone who sent me a message I was feeling pretty down about it and nearly just pulled the whole site but I knew that many people would b disappointed if I did.
While away I upgraded WordPress – the software that runs this blog so I am now running 2.2. By the way you can now have a free hosted WordPress blog. It is great software and I love it.
Now if I was going to follow Jerry’s advice about Mars being in retrograde I would not have embarked on upgrading anything or started new things such as this crazy quilt block but instead turned to finnishing a UFO.
I must admit due to unforeseen circumstances things are moving very slowly in the stitching line but, for what it is worth this is the stage my latest crazy quilt block is at. As you can see a little more embroidery has been done and it’s just about ready for beading and adding buttons.
The chain stitched curved seam embellishment was whipped with a rayon ribbon and I have added some silk ribbon embroidered flowers to the lace. Also a large lace motif has been added to the large purple area. I have a number of flower shaped buttons that will pull this area together. I have added another lace motif to the other side of the block. I am not sure if that is going to stay or not but it is there for the moment. This weekend in a public holiday long weekend and I hope to have it beaded by the end of it.
