Sew Joyful Preview

A little sneak preview of Sew Joyful. Designed as a companion to last year's Sew Peaceful this small sampler chart will be released in late October. I would have released it earlier but there are so many new charts being released for the Fall market that I decided to leave it a little longer which will also give me more time to take a much better picture than the one I have.

I am having problems uploading pictures from my computer to Blogger as they seem to have changed the format. I had to upload to Picasa and then use their 'blog this' option. This is ok for a single picture but would prove a nuisance for more than one. Is anyone else having the same problem?

And while I am in a complaining mode - don't you just hate bloggers who hold giveaways and then don't follow through? It's happened to me twice now and whilst I am a very understanding person who realises that sometimes 'life' gets in the way, little things like this annoy me so if you have no intention of sending out giveaways - please don't hold them!

OK grumbling over ... on with my post.

Tommy is almost ready to go into his box for his long winter's sleep and I am keeping an eye on him so that he doesn't bury himself like he did last year. These past few days it's been quite chilly and often raining and I am so ready for my trip to a much warmer climate. I will still be posting whilst I am away as I am taking my Macbook with me together with a few new projects to stitch. One of these is the LHN's Travelling Stitcher which I will doing in a SAL with Valerie our Fog City Dweller. Our SAL starts on October 1 so if anyone wants to join in please do - there are no rules, no blog, just SAL with us.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Love the sneak peek of Sew Joyful. That fabric in the background is wonderful too! Just makes me feel all Christmasy already!

    I'm all ready for our SAL. I hope to update my blog tonight and will list it there too! Yay!

    Love it! Have a lovely holiday! I'm having a quiet moan about Blogger too as the icon for posting a photograph(on top of the new post page) has disappeared and I haven't got to grips with Picasa!

    I love it, and will be ordering it the day it becomes available!

    Now, maybe I should go dig out my traveling stitcher chart and threads...

    Can't wait to see Sew Joyful and your progress on the Travelling Stitcher.

    It looks to be a beautiful pattern for the holidays!

    Lovely new design. Look forward to the release.
    I know what you mean Carol. I have gotten burned too a couple of times. Like you - if you have no intention of honoring your giveaway don't post it! I was a big devious and sent several reminders that maybe it got lost in the mail. didn't help but made me feel better LOL.

    I love the little green and red bird on Sew Joyful. Can't wait to see the entire thing! I feel your pain about giveaways. I am such an organized person, it is hard for me to realize that not everyone is like me. When I host a giveaway on my blog, I immediately write down the date I said I would pick a name, and the package goes out right when I get the winner's info.

    I love the look of this Carol. So pretty. Looking forward to seeing the whole design.

    I won a giveaway a while ago and am still waiting but knowing what the mail can be like I'll just keep waiting. This also happened to me with a PIF I signed up for. It hasn't put me off though bit it is a little annoying!

    This one seems so beautiful.

    This looks like another lovely chart Carol and one that will be another must have.

    Ooh, this looks like it's going to be another lovely one Carol - can't wait to see it in full! :o)

    I can't imagine not following through on a give-away; I know in my own case, I'm sometimes a little late in getting something out, but feel guilty about it until it arrives at it's destination.

    Have a wonderful vacation!

    I've had problems uploading pictures too. I tried fliker and that was even worse. Have you noticed you can't change your font colors either. It used to be so easy. Grrrr.
