Re: What is Happening, part II

Every once in a while email stops working on my tablet. I type in my password because a box comes up TO type it in, hit "ok" and nothing happens. In a day or two it "fixes" itself. The most recent...

Re: Pern Map (Cross stitch)

Mailed you the pages. I apologize for the highlighter I used, it's my way of keeping track of where I am on a pattern. I hope you can still see the color symbols on the pages. Good Luck!

Yes, I have the pattern. It is 12 pages. Without the color key I don't know how you could figure colors looking at my picture and then at the pattern?

I try not to think about Centigrade unless I absolutely have to! Fahrenheit is what I am used to. 90 degrees and higher in Fahrenheit feels "hot" to me, the much lower number in C definitely does not.
