Hello from a VERY wet Newfoundland and welcome to the Merry Month of JUNE!!!
Also, a warm welcome and thanks to all my followers, new and old :)
This past weekend I had my belated belated belated Graduation Party and BOY! was it ever a blast. I received my diploma in the mail just over two weeks ago so I thought it was about time I get to celebrate my graduation, despite not being able to attend the actual ceremony way back when. Having officially completed my program back in September 2011 (but really being finished back in April 2011), this day has been more than a year in the making. To say I was happy when I finally received it would be tremendous understatement. So I treated myself to a bit of a "par-tay" with my very best friends :) The morning after was hang-over free and I had a great time the night previous so I'd count my "graduation" as a success! Here's the happy girl... gonna have to get that framed pretty soon...
I also managed to make quite a bit of progress on my Friendship Sampler this weekend as well.
In other news, I've purchased a chart making program for my iPad which I've been experimenting with for a couple of hours. I do like it, but it's a little slow and prone to freezing, so I'm not in love with it at the moment. But I do like that it has the ability to show me the coloured version of the final product which I think is EXTREMELY useful. Here's a screen shot of what I'm working on...

Remember my post back in April about the house in Tors Cove??? Well this is my inspiration ...
I may add a few other Newfoundland inspired elements - a dory and maybe some birds off in the distance... I need to spruce it up a bit ;)
Generally speaking though, I really think charts are more like guidelines rather than being something that is set in stone. I have no qualms with making changes when the real deals starts to come alive on the fabric.
I hope one day to be able to produce a few charts inspired by the unique and funky houses that litter Newfoundland. As you can see below there are plenty out there!
Anyway, that's enough from me for today! I hope everyone had a great weekend and if you haven't done so already, sign up for my give-away here. Ends JUNE 19!!!!
Ciao for now.
