Block A`s stitching and Abbreviations.


Hi there, Grethe on the line here: Yes,feels good and recon I am ahead of schedule. But a busy month to come,so that`s fine. Had to make a new decision about fabrics,as apparently something went wrong with my order;still back-order for me(should have lived in Australia!). And with the ash-trouble up here north,post does not come as regular as it should. Pity that is. So back to square one,I am using mainly the Garden Party range, unfortunately. Oh,well,that is what I started off with anyway:-)

Do you see the nice,little purple note on the side of the picture? Being an expert on abbreviations -thought I was!-so there would be no problems with abbr.But being born and bread Norwegian, I have just cracked the code of a couple.
This means: OMG, anybody please help!!! Thanks a lot :-)

Happy Sewing.

OMG - Oh my God (surprise)
TTFN - Ta Ta for now (goodbye for now)
LOL - Laugh out loud
Don't you just love all the abbreviations. I blame SMS on the mobile (cell) phones.
Love your stitcheries for block A.

Your stitcheries looks very nice. Sorry for the missing fabrics. I got a parcel from Hancock's today, so there is a hole through. I am also ahead of scedule because of 2 busy months to come. The Potting Plants is my last stitchery for block A. I hope you soon get the fabrics you need.

Lovely for me to know,really glad I asked.Thanks a lot :0) Yes, I love abbreviation. My DH thought LOL meant Lots Of Love, could have been really.

Happy Stitching.

Jytte R said...

I am glad you asked too. I didn't know this abbreviations either. Have seen them so often on all the Australian blogs.

I didn't know some of those either. LOL I thought was lots of laughs. I like Lots of Love best, though.
Some of us are off to a slow start for various reasons.

Love that you asked. Made me LOL! My DH thought it meant Lots of Love too. Must be a man thing.
If you have any other trouble I just "google" them. www.google.com
Love your stitching, hope you get some fabrics soon.
