WOYWW 257

It's been a while, 33 weeks to be exact.. Back in September I broke my beloved old Panasonic Lumix and then lost the charger. My computer broke down shortly after the camera broke and my only internet access for a few months was through a 6 year old notebook which hated looking at blogs with pictures.The computer has been replaced, and Friday I got a new Panasonic Lumix.
 
I've been spinning a lot of yarn/thread with spindles mostly, but also a turn or three with my wheels. Dabbled with paper, and knit hats and scarves for Christmas presents (thank you Craftsy.com for your free short row knitting class) to the point I could watch my beloved Korean Dramas whilst knitting. And it''s so nice to see the backside of winter.

In the forefront is my first experiment with my new Papertrey Ink Strip Stitch die which turns cardstock into perforated paper suitable for cross-stitch. I didn't put the metal shim under it, so some of the dots didn't come out automatically. I've been experimenting with selective hole punching. 

So if you'd like so see more crafty spaces, or join in the fun, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground : ).

I almost sent the militia out after you. I was afraid you were going to miss the latest anniversary. So, so, so glad you are back. Sorry to read you had so much trouble. I can relate to computer issues. Korean dramas? I thought I was the only one who liked those. I see them on Hulu when I can get it to load (grin). Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Hey, it's good to see you back! Computers are a major pain in the derriere when they go wrong. It sounds as if you've been filling your time nicely with all the crafting. The Korean dramas sound like something my sons would watch - are they the Anime type of thing??
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

Funnily enugh MY Lumix broke too - I got a different camera and I don't like it nearly as much. I think I need to go back - I just hate the thought of buying another camera when this one works. Maybe I should drop it from a great height then I can justify getting a new one....

Happy WOYWW! Getting back to it now my connection has come back :)

Ooops. Forgot to mention I have used a hole punch to punch holes around the border of chipboard then crocheted and edging. Now I am wondering if this die you speak of might facilitate that...
:)

MA again

Really 33 weeks? I guess because I see you on FB it doesn't seem so long, thank goodness! I like the idea of the holey die, very clever. And perfect for you lovely yarn makers!

So glad you are back, I have MIA off and on with moving and stuff but I would have been really mental if it was down to computers and cameras!! Glad you are now sorted. Annette #9
