TUSAL and More…

Business first… this month’s TUSAL

A little better than last month 🙂

Yesterday went very much as planned.  Miso Salmon and strawberry cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory, a new food processor at Williams-Sonoma (thank you AmEx Membership Rewards), played with an iPhone and iPad at the Apple Store (still not decided on iPhone v Blackberry and the iPad is *way* heavier than I expected) and then home to relax, watch some baseball (go Braves!) and stitch a bit.

As it was my birthday, I chose to work on something for *me*.  No Round Robin. No Mirabilia Queen for DH. Something for me….

Here’s the before pic: Sea to Shining Sea from November

What I did not get done was putting together the giveaway…. soon.  Really soon…

  1. That’s the processor I have! Love it. I think I’ve had it for at least 3 years and I’ve never had a single problem with it.

    It’s ok, I’m working on your MiraRR for your b-day. 🙂

  2. Happy Belated Birthday Annette! Sounds like your day was a good one. I’ve got a Blackberry and my 14 yr old son has an iPhone. Overall I prefer my Blackberry but the photo apps for the iPhone are so cool, the Hipstamatic(you can get different lenses, so cool, there are flickr groups devoted to these apps) and the Shake it app(takes Polaroid like pics)and of course the Kindle app since my BB is an older one it didn’t make the Kindle app cut. I was broken hearted. But those minor things are the only reason I’d consider an iPhone. I have had no problems whatsoever with my Blackberry and my son’s iPhone as been back to the factory twice in the first year and my neighbor who has had an iPhone since day one is constantly sending her’s and her son’s back to be repaired for this or that so that makes me leary of getting an iPhone.

    The iPad, I’ve read several reviews , and at the moment is not a replacement for a laptop so it’d just be a toy or a fancy pants Kindle. I also read that it doesn’t have USB ports either, what was Apple thinking? So it’s kind of a big ol’ iTouch from what I’ve read. I wish we had an Apple store but no chance down here in Hickville.

  3. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a very nice one, your “me” project is coming along nicely.

  4. Your WIP looks really nice. I like the colors.
