Stitch n' Bitch

woodblock print by Hashiguchi Goyo.
OMG The motherboard of our home computer simply slipped into a dark and quiet place one day this past week. Life is not the same with a netbook. No no no. I know, thank goodness we had everything pretty much backed up and all my photos are in the cloud on picasa... However, the netbook is soooooo slowwwwwww. And doesn't have photoshop. I've been trying to figure out how to manage everything on this tiny thing and download photos from the camera, edit them, etc. for an entry here this afternoon and it's taken me 3 hours so far!!! So the end of blogging for awhile as this is no fun, no fun at all.  Now from bitching to some stitching action.

I was very excited to get a Japanese Pattern Book in the mail and figure out how to create my own pattern from the diagrams as well as grade the size to fit.  I made some deviations along the way which you can see in the pix.  It's called Kimono Style Dress.
