He woke up ...

in India I think. Long story. At any rate, the server is back up and running, at least for the time being. Tomorrow ... new web hosting service for sure.

Server still down ...

Sorry folks. The servers are still down. Perhaps the person who maintains the server is having a little nap. Keep trying ... and have a great Sunday evening. I think it's time for Sam and I to take a long walk.

Server issues ...

We are having trouble with our web server. It keeps going up and down and has been doing this since Friday ... so sometimes the links to the new things are working ... and sometimes they are not. I have been told "they are working on it". Hmmmmmm. At any rate, if you can't connect, please try again ... "they are working on it:-)".

She's back .....

... after a brief hiatus to get the new charts printed, the new kits put together and the web site updated. We have added some fun new books ... some new designs and designers, buttons, beads, gemstones, etc. ... so check it out.

And check this out:

Anne-Catherine does it again. I've ditched the knock-off Gucci in favor of this wild and wonderful creation and boy am I getting questions and comments everywhere I take it. De nouveau, merci, Anne-Catherine. Did I get that right or was it my usual garbled version of French? I'm studying. I really am ... Est-ce que vous voulez un cafe? Oui, merci, et de l'eau, un verre de vin, un peu de pain et fromage. So, at least I can order a coffee, some water, a glass of wine, bread, cheese ... all of life's little necessities :-) I promise I will soon learn words that don't relate to food or drink :-)

Took last weekend off to drive to Denver and spend some time with my dear daughter. It was lovely to be with my sweet offspring again, who is always entertaining, intelligent and well-informed ... just an all-round great person to hang out with.

Oh, and be sure to visit The On-line Needlework Show October 7-12. Yes, you can "shop", even if you are not a "shop". Just take a look at what is offered and if you find something you like you can "partner" with one of the "buyer" shops and they will purchase your items for you and see that you get them. It should be fun. Lots and lots of designers and manufacturers and new things, plus, there really is nothing like shopping barefoot in your pajamas first thing in the morning .... or last thing at night.

So, now that the three newest designs are "up and running" it's time to get on with the next round. The show must go on!

See you soon, ci vediamo a presto, à tout à l'heure, gauw tot ziens,
