We went to the fair this weekend for a few hours -- mostly just to say we'd "been there, done that" :-) I of course had to check out the cross-stitch exhibits and was very pleased. There was some beautiful work displayed. My favorite was the Taj Mahal Watergarden by Chatelaine Designs -- I can't wait for the day when I can purchase this for myself. And yes, we've got pictures!

On a different note - I've spent the last few days discovering many neat things you can do online as I have been reading blog after blog after blog. Here are some of the applications I like the most so far:

  • Taneya Google -- look! it's my very own Google search engine :-)
  • BlinkList - my overall principle when it comes to data management is to have it ONLINE! That way, I can have access to it no matter where I am and I can just make backups to store on my computer. Blinklist is an online bookmarks application -- I just put my bookmarks here and then I can access them anywhere.
  • XmailHardDrive - an application that lets you use your Gmail account like an online harddrive. It is a simple application and an interesting idea
  • Ta-Da List -- same principle as above -- put it online. This free service lets you put to-do lists online
Yes, I confess, not only am I a cross-stitch junkie, but a tech freak as well. :-)

Thank you for posting some pics of the fair! I didn't get to go this year and I was hoping someone would take pics!! Melanie at Medieval Needle won ribbons for her work, too!

Cool pics! The dragons you have stitched were mine too - they were this year's dud! We've got to get together and stitch!
