Belated Updates

Sunday, February 7, 2010
My boyfriend and I have been looking into buying our first house and it's taken up most of my time these last few weeks. Hopefully I'll have a few minutes to myself once we pick one and start the paperwork. We need to have a contract signed by the end of April to get the $8000.00 tax credit. Here's to hoping we find one in time!

Right before our house-hunting began I managed a few more hours on "Swirly Sampler". I finished the end of the alphabet (V, W, X, Y, and Z) and started the large, right-most star.


Today I did an hour or so of beading on "Letters From Nora: L". Sadly, it doesn't look much different from the last picture.


I wouldn't mind the beading half as much if it the beads in the vines weren't in such long rows. Stitching beads in rows makes me grumpy as I can never get them to fit just right. I end up having to improvise and I'm always afraid that someone will notice that the beads don't quite line up with the stitches.
