Missing in Action

So so sorry guys for being missing for such a long time.   My laptop for some reason will not update my browser due to a missing Service Pack and so I need to get someone to fix it which will hopefully happen soon.  In the meantime, I am keeping busy with my jobsearch and also my stitching (of course).  I've started om the Crazy 15 Challenge but having checked my memory stick I only actually have a photo of one of those which of course you will get to see.

I've also been going to sewing machine classes (gasp horror!) and I can now actually use one of those mechanical beasts.  My little antique hand crank Frister & Rossman is feeling decidedly put out but I've also put in a couple of pics of what I have actually made!  The classes are over for now but we're all looking forward to getting back to it when our lovely teacher Dianne comes back from her holiday.

I'm really enjoying the Crazy 15 Challenge.  Some projects are coming along at a great rate, some not so great lol.  I guess it just depends on whether I get completely hooked on what I am doing at the time.  Once I have got the browser sorted I will upload pics of all my projects for you to see.

Anyways, I shall get myself off now and leave you with some nice photos of what I have been up to over the last few months.
