Early Thursday morning, my sister and I will be going to my cousin's in Florida. She lives in St. Petersburg. We are flying into Tampa. She doesn't have internet, so I will not be taking my computer. I will be in touch when I get back.

This is the Cross Stitch I have been working on. I am on the border now and it wil be finished. I have ties to the flag pole and the windows to finish too. Oh, i missed a leaf also. Oh well, it is coming right along.

This is one of the things I made right after Christmas. The other things I am working on I cannot show right now, they are gifts. This is a padded sleeve for my little 8 inch. computer. The fabric was given to me in Holland. I love it.

What wonderful projects. I wish you a safe trip and hope you have a great time. I'll catch you when you come home! I'll be thinking of you enjoying that warm weather while I'm still trying to get my mind around global warming as I sit here freezing my little fingers off!

I love your cross-stitching; it's such a nice pattern. And, your fabric sleeve is so pretty! Have a wonderful trip!

Hope you have a great time in sunny florida! I'm jealous..., it's freezing here in Holland. The people I know from walking with Rover in the woods didn't recognize me because of my scarf, mittens and hat...
Great idea to make a computer sleeve, I'm going to remember that, when I saved up enough to buy a laptop.
