Didn't make it to the computer all weekend

I was hoping to get my pictures off my camera, onto photobucket and posted here this weekend.  But I was working hard on my Bremen Town Musicians (an oldie by Prairie Schooler).  I've loved this one since it was published, started it twice before this time and let YEARS pass before adding stitches.  I've done more work this year on it than in the previous 10 years combined!  LOL  I'm down to the donkey.  The outlining is done.  Now I can rot my brain while filling it in. :)  Sometimes I don't like to count when doing my counted cross stitch.  ;)

Here's a link I found online of a picture of it.  I plan to frame mine rather than the bellpull idea.

I'm hoping to get my camera software uploaded

I hope to get my camera software uploaded onto the computer.  Then I can take pictures, save them to my Photobucket account and post updates to the blog with photos!!!  Sooo much easier than trying to scan framed items and big things.

I used to have a Yahoo! email account and belonged to a few cross stitch groups.  I can't even remember the last time I was there.  Needless to say, I've had to open a new Yahoo! email account.  I'm currently waiting to see if the Oakhaven group will give me membership.  I like her designs that I've seen on her blog and want to see more!  My fingers are crossed.

Sorbello Stitch for sheep

The Sheep Ornament by Amaryllis Artworks uses a wonderful stitch for the sheep: the sorbello.   The chart (actually a kit) is from 1996.  It always interests me that something that seemed confusing or hard  can become easy merely with the passage of time.

Oh, and yesterday's MSWF was terrific!  It was a perfect day.
