Addendum to Week That Was

I forgot to mention a couple other things....

1.   Remember the black and white photo I did of my niece... the companion piece I showed in my last post?  I finally delivered it to my brother at his workplace.  He was so thrilled with it, he showed it off to his coworkers and told the story of how I did similar ones of his other two daughters. As I left, he thanked me again and said, "I love it!"  I'm sure it wasn't long after he got home that the new one was hung up on his wall along side the other two.

2.   The sweetheart that he is, the BF bought me a subscription to Just Cross Stitch as a Valentine's Day gift... so that I could do the SAL with Christina.  If you're considering getting a subscription, I highly recommend getting the digital version.  Each issue is a downloadable PDF file that is searchable.  For less than $20, not only do you get the current issues throughout the year, but you also get access to the prior two years back issues... including the ornament issues.  The back issues are also downloadable and searchable PDF files.  That's like getting three years for the price of one!  What I like is that I only need to print the pages I need when I want to do a project.  Takes up less space and I can still peruse them anytime I want.

I knew your brother would love the b&w photo! Glad to hear you went with the digital subscription. I like that I can keep the digital files and print only what I need.

Hey Meari!
I am sorry to hear that you have caught the cold that is going around and I hope that you are improving every day.
I hope that work settles down and things return to a comfortable work environment.
I am looking forward to seeing the progress on your SAL!
Have a great week!

Meari,
I did get the digital version of JCS, but don't see the option for the back issues. Could you point me in the right direction?
