Making progress

Hi everybody.  Thanks for directing me to Mozilla's Firefox.  Quicker, smoother, and I can view Amazon.  Haven't had too much extra time to view blogs today.  I finally, after weeks, have the labels photographed, clipped, cut, copied, pasted, moved, resized, yadda yadda.  Now I have to get my samplers back in their frames with new dust covers.  So this is what I got done today..
Postage is going up on the 22nd of this month or something close to that date.  I couldn't believe what it will cost to ship these lightweight boxes!  Oh well, maybe I'm wasting my time, but I think I will create a page on this blog to see if they would sell.  Probably Friday or Saturday.

I've also been working on the Woodlawn little by little.  I had a neck flare up last weekend and the tingling in my arms is finally better.  Here's my stitching progress.
I got a few emails about the Bird's of a Feather Santas.  You can find them
here.   Except of course for the Gold one.  I have no idea why it's not carried along with the others, but I emailed Attic Needlework and they were great as usual, and had what I wanted.    I had something else to report......but can't think of it.  Oh well.  I want to get some heat on my neck and get off the computer so this was to be short anyway.   Aren't you glad???  No ramblings!
Thanks for visiting and commenting and emailing and reading and following and making a menopausal maniac smile!

Your boxes are awesome!

Andrea said...

Oh my goodness, what wonderful boxes Marly!! Love them!!

How are you redoing your samplers to "dust cover" them? I was considering having glass put on some of mine that are hanging, but gosh, there are so many and the cost might be prohibitive...esp. if using museum glass....hmmm.....is that what you are doing?

The boxes look great! Love the sampler, too. The little guy on the ship is too cute.

I'm so glad that Firefox worked out for you! I heard that it is better at being anti-virus than Internet Explorer, too. ? Here's hoping!

Bertie said...

Wow I love those boxes and would hope you send to the UK Marly:) Of course they sell!!

Lovely sampler, I do like boats, it looks very Dutch!

Firefox is easier and I (touch wood) never had a problem. I did install Trojan Hunter though!

Margaret said...

The boxes are wonderful -- I'm sure they will sell! I'm on a mission to save money, but I might have to break down on this. Love that sampler -- it's so pretty!

jonette said...

Glad you like Mozilla Firefox. The boxes & stitching are beautiful!

Gabi said...

Your boxes are gorgeous. If I wouldn't live in Australia I would order immediately one.
If you just started Firefox you might want to have a look into the addons. Firefox has some great ones that make it such a fantastic browser. And the best thing is that if you don't like an addon it will clean uninstall without clogging up.

Glenna said...

I love those nifty looking boxes--and also Woodlawn.

Mindi said...

Love the boxes! Your progress on the Woodlawn piece is great, looks like its going to be a fantastic sampler and worth figuring out the difficult to read chart.

cucki said...

Sweet Sue said...

Your boxes are positively swoon-worthy!!!

Penny said...

You've done a beautiful job on the boxes - I absolutely love them! I don't think you will have any difficulty in selling them. :) You are doing some lovely stitching on your Woodlawn sampler!

nathalie-poppy said...

Oh ly dear !!!
I love your boxes and would have ought one if I was not living so far from you !!!
In France, sending parcels (even light parcels) is very expensive too !!!!
Big hugs and I am sure you will have many buyers for those wonderful boxes !!!!
Arggggggg !! I feel jealous !!! lol !!!
Hugs
Nathalie

The boxes look great! Sounds like postage over there has become a silly price, just like over here. Posting even small things has become ridiculously expensive. Your Woodlawn sampler is looking fantastic.

Sandie Maldonado said...

How do I purchase? I would like a stack of 7 please.
