A friend invited me to join Most of the designers do beadwork, so I’m there to provide some variety. I’ve spent the last couple of weeks knitting and crocheting models, so they can be photographed. Thank goodness, I finished the last of the first batch last night ... I hadn’t gotten the instructions typed in before my 3-month-old computer crashed. We can’t even get the computer to turn on to run Diagnostics to find out what’s wrong. Fortunately, it’s still under warranty, so repairs will be free, but who knows how long that will take?

So, I’m running the old computer – the one that was so unreliable that I had to buy the new one to replace it. It has PatternMaker on it, so I started playing around with an image I saw in a commercial last night. The on-screen color picture looks good enough that I’ve already e-mailed it to the web-mistress to add to the website, but I would like to stitch it up just to see what it looks like.... It’s bright colors, so, of course, I’m thinking rayons on black fabric. :)

Lemme tellya, when you’re not much of an artist to begin with, it’s reeeeeal fun to draw with a mouse, with your hands shaking. Yes, it’s one of my more symptomatic days. launches on July 4, with a flurry of red, white and blue designs.
