Update & Check In from Myrtle Beach

I've done a little housekeeping on the blog...all of the previous posts are still here, but I've removed all of the buttons from other blogs that I've followed in the past.

That is not to say that I don't still support and follow those bloggers, it just means that I am trying to get mine cleaned up and reorganized.  It was easier to delete the buttons than to try to find and correct any broken links.

On another note, I've been doing a lot more knitting than sewing.

My new (to me) Bernina is not getting much of a workout yet, but I have lots of plans.  I have done a little practicing on my free motion quilting, unfortunately I am a perfectionist and want it to be perfect RIGHT NOW!  It is very frustrating to me when I can't see a noticeable improvement from my first attempt to my 10th.  I'm sure it will come...someday.

We also recently acquired a new camera and I have been experimenting with all of the gadgetry that is associated with that.  Hopefully I will be getting some better photos for my blog.

I joined a sock club with Yarn Mountain and just finished the "Winter Challenge".  I am thrilled to have three new pairs of socks and to be working on my fourth.

January "Donna's Favorite"

I will have to wait until I get home to take pictures of the other two pairs.  I thought I had them on my computer, but apparently not.

Anyway, hopefully we will be seeing a little more of each other in the near future.

If you'd like, you can stick around and see one of the wonderful sunrises & some
other beachiness of the past week.  I'm heading out for one last evening of sand between my toes.
