Not sure about this new template...

Hi. I have something to post but then got to playing with my blog and messed up the template. I am not loving it. I can't find the creativity that I want for it. For example; how do I change the placement of the title? I don't WANT it there!! Errgghh!!

The coffeebeans might be a bit much for me too so I need to research this more. I downloaded the much talked about PICNIK but can't seem to get it to work! Errrgghh!!

It's 11:51am and I have been messing with this far too long! I did, however, run back up to school to meet Ali between the gates and he stood me up! HE forgot his form!? So, I found his friend and gave it to her. So, I did DO something!

I will give this blog a break and do some more laundry and then come back to it. What else is on the list for today? Shall I go ahead then? Ok. This is what I have been up to...



Crocheting to the point of pain! Yes, I suffer from something and it hurts like a b*&ch! Anyway, I got this really cool yarn thingy that has a little hole in the top for the yarn to come out and it has a carrying handle which you can see and the body is clear so you can see what is inside! I got two of the same but my Mama is coming, insha'allah, and I will ask her to bring the bigger one so I don't have to roll out the skein and and and the smaller one just because I want it! Ha! My crochet hook is inside and I have made 5.5 of the 8 for this color. Then I need 24.5 more blocks! Crap. I can feel the pain!

The embroidered piece is a gift from my uncle Janos from Hungary's sister. This is very typical in the homes over there and it is colorful and beautiful! I have a cheater cloth but I do not know how to do the stitches. I mean they are satin stitch but I don't know the flowers or the colors. I hope to make it before I croak!

I took tons of pictures of Ali and his Chocolate cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting but I will post that later.

I am very pleased that this photo above is not orange!! Picnik is NOT WORKING on my Mac!!

Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a word on my shoutbox. You don't need to be logged into Google or anything!

your squares are looking great! The banner is nice and the template you just have to work out that big gap and the title I guess.
