You can also try the BookDepository, too - remember they have free shipping worldwide. Oh, and you're welcome. :)

Wow, such treasures you got!! You'll have lots of fun with those.

It's Sunday, the day I normally update, and whoopsie, I have nothing to show. It's been a heck of a week after getting back from my conference.
But don't let my slackness stop you, post them updates! Let us have a look at all the pretty stuff your doing.

I have to invest in a new camera. Any suggestions? It has to be EASY to operate. Did i emphasize "EASY' enough? I kep getting cameras that i can't figure out how to use for simple pictures, and then they break. OR they require new batteries every 5 minutes, or both. That has been the story with my Pentax. There must be something better.
Oops, didn't mean to ramble on, but that is why i don't post pictures.
Do love to see all your progress.

We have learned to buy rechargeable batteries and a charger - yes, they cost more at first, but wow! the savings in the long run. And the charge lasts a long time, too.
As for a camera, don't go with the cheapest you can find, you won't be happy with the results. We bought the girls cameras two Christmases ago, they took them on holidays, and the pics were not that great (we paid around $80 apiece, I think) - for mine (it's a Lumix - around $400) we looked at a cheaper model (around $175 or so, can't remember) but I wanted to be able to take good pictures at guild, in particular, of the show and tell quilts, so I needed a decent zoom. Mine is 12X, I think - and it takes movies, too!
Do some shopping around (online and in store), and don't forget to check for comments/reviews online - Bill does that for everything he thinks he might buy. Reviews by BUYERS are best.

I am not making the greatest progress on my stitcheries - I seem to get more done on Monday mornings at the group. Watching tv doesn't give me the best light (the over the shoulder lamp on the pole lamp shines sideways into hubby's eye, which gives him a migraine! BUT - it will get done! Still pondering if I want to go red and white or cream, and which setting.
Ladies, what I'm seeing so far, is great!

Rhonda - does your cell phone have a camera?  My cell phone camera is better (higher pixels) than my expensive one. (lighter to carry around too!)  Especially for pics you want to post on forums, etc. 

With my data package, pics automatically upload to my photobucket, and then posting is easy!   Just a thought.....

Wonderful, Cindy!! That is so cute!

I have one measly little block finished! And I made a booboo on it that I will have to either carefully take out, or change the rest of the block - UGH!!
I do not think I'll get them all done in time for the deadline, though. Bummer!! I can hardly wait for late spring/summer so I can sit out on the balcony and stitch. Doing it evenings isn't the most conducive to getting them done, the light's not so good by my chair. I will keep plugging along.

Looks wonderful, but I'd have to clip it on my hand!!! I don't use hoops for regular embroidery anymore! Hmmmmm...... LOL

very pretty, gerda!!! 

now i don't use a hoop for counted x-stitch, but i had to hunt mine down to work on these blocks for my row robin . . . so if you don't use a hoop for embroidery, do you back your square with some type of stabilizer?
