A quick post to show you my last progress on Computer wizard….I think it’s a good idea to post a photo of my last Wednesday progress on Computer Wizard before tomorrow x-stitch… better late than never (unfortunately last Thursday and Friday I was out from the office and I have no time to post anything)…I finished only the hair, my progress would be more considerable but unfortunately I waste a lot of time colouring the chart…I bought the chart for Patterns online.com so this is a file .pat I print it in a black a white version (B/W symbol) because I haven’t a colour print…Last Wednesday I notice that there are several identical symbol for different DMC colour so I have to check all of them and colour it to avoid mistake in the stitching...it was an awful grind!!

This is my progress so far…as you can see this is a very little progress but yesterday was a busy day and I have only few minutes for x-stitch…I’ll stitch more next Wednesday
Today's SBQ is:
Do you like to buy "chartpacks" that include charms, buttons, and/or
beads or do you prefer to gather all materials yourself?
I like to buy “chartpacks” even if by today I buy only one …It’s easier and quicker

In the past weeks I would like to post something but I didn’t find any time to do it… That was a very busy period at work and at home...I work all day at the pc and at evening I didn’t fell like to use the computer anymore….the new home is proceeding, and it’s very time and patience consuming… every day there is a new trouble to solve… now I can see the light of day but there are more things to do :-(….We hope to move in March or latest in April…(I hope to show you some photos soon).
In the last week I tried to add emoticon to my post thanks to this link it works :-D….I would like to use the emoticon of the previous post instead o this one but I’m not able to change the image… any suggestion?
First of all I would like to show you my winter envelope for EMS mail art exchange.
This is the envelope I made for Elisa, I choose a snowmen from an old Italian Magazine and I stitch it on a silkweavers sparkle fabric I bought years ago. I’m quite satisfied by the and as Elisa likes it I’m very happy :o)
And this is the envelope I received from Denise, I love it very much it’s marvellous. And the treads she sent me are lovely. Thank you Denise!!!
