I hate scams!
Well, I suppose we all do. I've had this company trying to scam me recently though by phoning me up and telling me that my computer sends data to my service provider and so they are given this by them and they then phone you up to help you sort out the problem.
Do you have a desktop or a laptop, press this key, that key what do you see on your screen ....
That type of thing.
Fortunately I realised it was a scam and reported them to my service provider, who confirmed that to me.
They said had I of done what they asked, they could have got info from me that would allow them to hack into my account.  GRRR.
It really annoys me though, that someone else might, without thinking ('cos we all have those days don't we) give them the information they need and then they have full access to all the information they need to scam that poor person!
Isn't it just awful that people will do this to each other!

I haven't been able to access blogger, but it's decided to work again now, so I'm able to show my latest update to you.  I'm really liking it alot and can't wait to see it finished now.

It's a shame you can't really see the effect of the metallics. They look really pretty and sparkly against the muted colours, without being too over the top.
Awful as they are to work with, I do love the bling factor so much and I get a real sense of achievement out of 'taming' them.  It's a shame I never thought to pull the fabric right before the picture.  It's a bit lopsided where I've been stitching so as not to catch the frame.  It is straight really though! :)

I'm off to take the dog out now ... take care everyone and thanks for reading!



  1. With faith..looks lovely even though the sparkly bits aren't evident on the photo, I wish all camera's came with a bling setting. The border around the design will finish it off well.
    I found out the blogger site was down for maintenance earlier on, I wondered what had happened too :)

  2. This is looking lovely! Well done. :)

  3. Very pretty stitching. I know what you mean about the 'sparkly' bits. they never seem to show up as you'd expect.

  4. I've been getting that scam too! I just ask them, "Exactly how stupid do you think I am??" Then hang up fairly soon after that.


  5. Sis! Your project is so lovely. Such a sweet message to hang in your home.

    Oh, I'm having problems with blogger also. Last week, I can't put a new post. Then later that week, some of the comments have been deleted by their system. And I also noticed that some of my comments on other blogs also disappeared. I'm wondering if they are now being over-populated with bloggers?... :-D


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I really appreciate it.
