New stash AND a NEW COMPUTER!!

I will shortly show you my new stash, but first I have to wax eloquent about my new computer!! My old computer was so clogged up that it literally took 20 minutes to boot up. And surfing was more like dog paddleing - slloooowwwww. Now, I can't believe how fast this machine moves. And, the package I got came with a 20" flat panel - WOW! It almost scares me with the clarity and vibrance of the screen. I can't tell you how happy I am to have it.

My new stash is making me happy as well. I have a picture of some of it, some has yet to get to me and still more will come as soon as I order them. This is typically the time of year (or at least one of them) I go bonkers and binge on stash!! I use the excuse of the upcoming MB trip, but I get more stuff than what will be done for and at that. But, come on, this really is my only addiction, and everybody has to have one don't they?? Actually, the Just CrossStitch magazine is part of my subscription, so technically, it isn't even a new purchase. Do I hear a little rationalization going on here?? Some of this will be used for my MB exchanges, and some I will stitch while I am at MB. I think that much of my stitching this month I will not be able to show you because they will be part of the exchanges. I can tell you that I have finished stitching my main Halloween piece, and know how I am going to finish it. I think I will do the finishing at my DD's house this Wednesday evening while she studies in her office.

I wanted to tell you all how much I appreciated your concern over my medical issues. I did see the surgeon last Monday, and she wants to keep the staples in for three weeks and hope that will resolve the issue. She is not at all pleased with the idea of my having the other surgery mostly because I obviously don't heal too well, and the other surgery will entail two spots. I am trying to be very good and taking my antibiotics on time and not lifting anything or stretching too much.

We are still suffering from the heat and lack of rain here in Kentucky as I think much of the rest of the country is as well. I hope all of us gets some relief soon! Until next time, have a happy, healthy stitchy time!

Congratulations on your new computer! My old one from 2003 is so slow that I do most everything on my Android phone instead! Happy Stitching at MB (what does that stand for?).

Good to hear that you have a doctor who is looking at your body's response and trying to base decisions off that - that is not always the case. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Stash is always a lot of fun and isn't it great not to have to sit in front of the computer grinding your teeth? ;-)

Congrats on the new computer. And on getting that MB stitching started! That's my plan, but not as yet

Continue to take care and heal quickly!

Congrats on the new computer, there will be no stopping you now. Your stash looks great and looking forward to seeing the results in MB.

Congrats on your new computer! I couldn't believe how fast I could surf the net when I replaced my old one. Your clicky finger will be able to purchase that stash so much faster!
Your new stash looks great too. I can't wait to see some of them all stitched up.

Ooh look at that lovely new stash! Fantastic bits and pieces.

Glad you've got a new computer. There's nothing worse than an old sluggish one!
