Secret Needleroll Exchange Take 2!

Now that partners have been revealed for the S&S secret needleroll exchange I can now reveal the needleroll I stitched and sent to Dusty ( Helena).
Little House Needleworks Faith Hope Love
For victims of Hurricane Katrina
Stitched with DMC

Dusty was very happy with it and the more I look at the picture the more pleased I am with it so I think it's a thumbs-up all round! Lol! I also included a couple of Carrie's threads.

And I can reveal that the needleroll that I received was stitched by Nels ( Jayne N). Thank you so much Jayne:) I absolutely love it and it's on the mantlepiece in my living room where I can see it:)

No Just Nan Morning Song update today as I didn't stitch at all last night. I may stitch on it tonight instead. The reason for no stitching??? Hmmmm! DH and I went to PC World yesterday to have a look at wireless routers and ask lots of advice etc. So we ended up buying one with the hope it would be nice and simple to set up. Well it probably would have been had the set-up instructions on the CD been more comprehensive but we fell at trying to get the router to talk to the PC! After much reading and trying to work out what we were doing wrong we settled on ringing the support number ( guess whose phone bill will be ever so slightly higher this time!). We eventually got sorted and said router is now working and we have Jessica's laptop and the girls' desktop PC working off it too. Then I hit a snag when I tried to open Outlook Express and retrieve emails as it kept trying to log into the old modem which we'd disconnected! We tried for ages to work out what we needed to do, rang support again, nice helpful bloke ( not!) decided he couldn't help us and we'd need to ring our ISP! To cut a very long short we eventually looked on our ISP's website and found the answer and now it's working! Phew! In the meantime I'm downloading and setting up virus protection and a firewall for Jess' laptop then a huge 64 MB of updates for Windows!! The only thing we can't sort yet is getting her access to the printer via our PC so I don't know what we're going to do there. I think I shall maybe email someone who is good with computers!

Have a great weekend everyone.
Hugs

Love the needleroll. Told you it would be fine, you always do such lovely stitching and finishing Sally.

A beautiful needleroll Sally. I've not stitched my Faith, Hope, Love yet but when I do I think I shall have to finish it as a needleroll like you have...the design is perfect for it!

We went wireless last year when our youngest Matthew bought his laptop for studying at college. I've still not sorted out the networking yet to give him access to the printer. To be honest I keep forgetting as he seems to be getting along fine. As he always backs up his work onto his memory stick/pen thingy anyway he just brings that down to the main computer when he needs to print. Even if we were networked he would still need to come down to collect his work once it was printed anyway! :o)

Gorgeous needleroll Sally and a gorgeous design and sentiment...may have to add this one to my wish list...which just gets longer each day...lol

Lisa said...

Love the needlerolls you stitched and received Sally, very pretty.
Glad you getting there slowly with the wireless network. DH set ours up but we still have problems sometimes. I used to be able to print from my laptop but something happened and I can't again now lol so I email or msn him what I need and he prints it from there for now.

Carol said...

Lovely needlerolls sent & recieved Sally. I reckon your choice of design for Dusty was absolutely spot on. :0)
Glad you're sorting out the PC/laptop problems. You're braver than me: I just shout for DH & DS when things don't want to play. LOL

I think the needleroll you stitched looks every bit as lovely as any of the needlerolls I've ever seen.
