Endings and Beginnings

Yesterday, I needed to visit the LNS to take advantage of the punch card I'd filled up earlier in December, since there's a expiration date on the card. She still didn't have the AVAS floss I still need for Jeannette Douglas' "My Stitching Treasures," but I did go ahead and pick up nearly the complete set of Blackbird Designs' "Anniversaries of the Heart." No fabric, since I haven't decided whether to do them as a hay-uge single piece or as individual pieces. And I haven't decided just what anniversaries I'll commemorate.

Beatrix Potter Quaker is still in the floor stand, neglected pretty much all December long. No changes; there she stays until I decide to work on something else.

On the card-crafting front, after receiving a bonus at work I decided to purchase a CuttleBug embossing/die-cutting machine. I got the most basic version; I don't need anything fancier, since most dies and embossing folders will work just fine with this one.

It's also become time to buy a new desktop computer. No decisions yet, but WallyWorld has a HP with 6G of RAM and a 1T hard drive for a nice price. No monitor, because the one I have isn't that old. Mentally tossing coins now, trying to decide whether to go for it now or wait until later, when the taxes are done, especially since I'll have to buy Office.

  1. If you want me to look for the AVAS at the Attic, let me know. I usually go on Thursday nights.

    Good luck with your computer purchase. I dread when it's time for stuff like that since I'm afraid I'm getting more than what I need ;)

    Happy new year!
