I had a lovely weekend last week with a group of internet friends that I “met” online way back in 1999. Several i had met in person over the years, but over the weekend I met several in person for the first time….. Wonderful, strong, smart, stitchy women.
During the weekend activities, I made some decent progress on my Teresa Wentzler Egyptian Sampler. I did mostly border work on the right side… long stretches of straight lines that required very little counting so that i didn’t have to concentrate too hard. 🙂 I might continue to finish the border outlines all the way around and then start to do the border fill work as I go.
I’m very happy to report that I’m blogging on my ipad. I never thought that would be possible because even though the WordPress app is pretty good and easy to use, I don’t do too well with the virtual keyboard. One of the things I saw last weekend was people using bluetooth keyboards to type on their ipads and although I knew these existed I never knew what to get or how well it would work. I got the keyboard on Amazon (Prime) and I LOVE IT. It was hard to turn down a purple keyboard that was half the price of the same model at Best Buy.
So, for now I’m out of town again for a week visiting my family in Ticonderoga, NY and experience the “Best Fourth in the North.”
Happy Fourth of July!
