Having problems loading images..

I have been trying for a few hours now to upload some pictures of the new designs and products. But the blogger won't let me upload any pictures.

You can see my new design and products update at:

I will have a design published in July issue of gift of stitching. Life has been so busy. Since I have changed web hosting company, I did have a few issues with images not showing up on my web site. I was not aware of the problem until this morning when I was adding new products. The problem occurred when I cancelled the old web hosting service and the links were all incorrect. Building a web site has been a learning experience for me. I am very happy with my current web hosting company. The service is very prompt and they are so knowledgable.

I bought a few stitching projects with me on vacation. I did not stitching anything except the new design for a few hours. I do miss stitching without deadlines.I do plan on stitching some christmas ornaments soon.

Have a wonderful week and enjoy the Summer.

I am back from Branson, Missouri

We went to Branson, Missouri for 8 days. The weather was cooler than Houston and less humid. We all had a wonderful time. The drive was long and it was 13 hours each way. It was so hard to keep my 5 years old entertained in the car. I will have some pictures to share soon. We did some hiking, went to Silver City park, and went to one show only since my son was not interested in shows at all. My husband and son did a lot of miniature golfing and swimming.

I have a few things that I need to catch up on. New designs are coming up and I have some new products for my web site as well. I will have all the updates very soon.

Have a wonderful weekend and it is a great feeling to be home.

Preview on Little Stitches new Patriotic set and update on Little Stitches Web site.

I have been working very hard in the last few weeks trying to get a few things done. Working on my web site is one of my priorities. It has been a great learning experience but very time consuming and frustrating at the same times. There were issues about the web site that was out of my control. It has been days before the technical support would resolve those issues for me. Looking for supplies, products have been a very time consuming process as well. My son has been sick with his coughing for the last 2 months. We need to see a specialist to find out why. So I have not been able to get much sleep and trying to do everything with limited time. I have not been able to visit blogs or leaving comments either. Hopefully in 2 months, things will be better and life will be back to the normal routine soon.

Thank you so much for all your purchases for the last few weeks. The web site should be up and running next week and I will post the URL here.Here are some pictures of the new patriotic designs which will be available next week as well:

Patriotic Emery with Jingle bells, the Jingle bells do jingle:

Patriotic Emery with special made button, I am going to have a tutorial on custom made button for biscornu included in the design:

Patriotic pinkeep:

Patriotic Scissor fob:

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the Summer. It has been hot in the Houston area with no rains. Take care and thank you again for visiting my blog.
