A Mad Woman's Sewing

This is this weeks update on Betsy. By looking at the photos they look as if a mad woman is working on it. I am trying to get it all lined up properly and found that I had to go and finish the right hand side border. I have nearly finished the last queen stitch flower and just have to fill in all of the greenery etc.

I can't start the next portion till I get the portion with the saying all worked out. She is looking lovely though. I don't know if you can see them, but there are all different strands of white cotton worked through it to line it all up.

Thank you to everybody for your concerns regarding one of my sons. He is thankfully and is not back to his cheeky self. Sometimes, as our children grow up they become more of worry than when they were small.

I am trying at the moment to beat this computer. Everytime I turn the computer on that I update my blog on, it wants to upgrade something. It just sent me a message that it is going to do it in a couple of minutes. These computers have minds of there own sometimes.

Just quickly thank you for all your encouraging words regarding Betsy. I really appreciate it. I'm sorry if I haven't had a chance to pay a visit to you lately, but I have had a lot going on with sickness in the family. If it's not one it's the other. Ah it's going.

Betsy still comes to life under your hands and needle, dear friend. Have I forgotten to tell you I love your blog background?

I had the same thing happen on my computer this morning. Annoying as anything and it's so rude! No matter that you tell it to do the upgrade later, it just goes right ahead and upgrade! Argh!

This Betsy is looking just lovely!
