Damned computers!!

As I said in the previous post....

...the STITCH magazine article is out...

...and the new shop on line Wednesday evening....


Well, the best laid plans of mice and men of course.....


My poor Bloke, who's worked like a little (well maybe not so little) Trojan over the last god-knows-how-many months to get the website and shop up and running....

...despite having to go through a load of chemotherapy...

...various nasty surgical procedures....

..including being separated from his big toenails (ouch!!)...



...THEN discovered that the shop had a few "technical hitches"...

...for him to sort out...

...just when he thought it was done and dusted :-O !!!


It never ceases to amaze me how the absence of a single letter "s" can throw Internet Explorer into conniption fits....

...and that if you want something to be £15, you have to set a threshold four decimal places to the left ...(or is it right?)

Anyway, after all his hair grew back, he's now been tearing it out again....

...but it looks like it's sorted. Phew!

DAMNED COMPUTERS!!!


Anyway, while he's been doing that...

...I've been doing this...




..making tracks with the final "Tribal Cloth" sample in salmon/pink/grey.

As you can see, I'm on the beading, which is going to take me quite a few hours, but is well worth the effort as it makes the piece look sumptuous!

I've also been fiddling with a few more of these little ones...



..and will have a little pile of them to put together fairly soon.


I've almost finished the first little Breton house too....

...will post that as soon as the stuffing's done :-)

That top one's making a lovely "vessel"! Sorry to hear about your woes but at least you're finding some "fun" time x

Fun indeed!

...I've got the nicer occupation I think :-)

Thanks Rachel!

Looks great - also looks like you got the best end of this deal. Wish I had a computer guru living in my house! *smile*

I share your frustrations with computers!! The stitch lines on this piece add some nice flow!

Eva said...

My sympathy for your dh for the hard time he is going through. Hope he'll soon get over it. -- Your artwork is getting more beautiful with every piece.

Congratulations on the magazine article and the opening of your new shop. Glad to hear hubby is recovering! Your stitchwork is lovely as ever!
