Yes, you'll notice I changed my screen. I couldn't stand that pink background I had. I have been trying to get a new background for my blog for a couple of weeks without any luck. For some reason, I can't get the script copied from the Cutest Blog on the Block - or anywhere else for that matter). Oh, it did save it as a screensaver on my computer (how that happened I don't know), but just wouldn't copy over to the blog (thank goodness, I noticed a comment from someone else that she was having the same problem). I'm really computer stupid - I mean big-time. It's pretty bad when your 15 year old son and 13 year old nephew have to show you how to use the video cam (and in fact, my son will have to show me how to change my screensaver back when he gets home - no, not really, but there is just a lot I don't know). In fact, if anyone has a clue as to how to get those tools off the sidebar of my blog, I'd appreciate the help. Seems I came across something about it, but you know how that is - I wouldn't be able to find that site again in a million years).
So, anyway, I copied Terri's template (terriboog) who just set up a new BLOG. Go check it out! It's listed on the side - Chocolates for Breakfast,......... I'll change my background soon Terri - promise!!
Anyway, I started Frances, but as you can see, I have only gotten one motif done (probably because I've been spending all my time trying to work out the blog thing and some other computer related things). Hopefully, over the next week I'll get a lot done. The kids are off for three days next week and I take advantage of their sleeping in and get a lot of stitching done.
I have to say though that I've fallen victim to some of the new Nashville releases. I swore I wasn't going to do that. A couple of them are of the A&E variety from Praiseworthy Stitches and The Primitive Needle. Which got me thinking (not a good thing sometimes). Please keep in mind that I'm a SAH mom who has inhaled a lot of cleaning products over the years. Anyway, I'm thinking about Adam and Eve in the garden and Eve giving Adam the apple. Thus, they sinned. Now what was up with Adam???? Surely, he had thought of this before Eve provoked him? And he's a man right? Where was the drive? Where was his sense of adventure? Well, perhaps he needed some prodding. Perhaps he needed some directions. That's it - men don't ask for directions, do they? LOL. Shows that women definitely have more of a handle on things then the men do. So I continue to think that if they had not sinned, where would all the rest of us be? Seriously? We wouldn't be here to blog and stitch. Thank goodness, Eve had the guts to cross the line or none of us would be here, would we?
Told you I inhale too many cleaning products!
