The vacuum cleaner won!

This is what remained of the DSL cord after an encounter with our vacuum cleaner.  I thought it must be a heavy-duty special cord, but the young man at the computer store next door assured me it was just telephone line.  He offered me some for free.  I thanked him, but told him I had lots of it myself.  And I have added another piece of trivia to my vast stockpile.  I have also discovered that a needlepoint needle is great for sticking in the tiny reset hole on the modem.  I found that out because I never seem to be able to find a paper slip to bend and use.

 I decided to do all the the splendor before adding the metallic, which then should be a mindless experience.

Received the latest alligator in the Needle Nicely collection back from our new pillow finisher.  Love the way it turned out.  The canvas is from The Princess and Me.
It helps tremendously if "one" hits Publish and completes the blogging process.  Big Duh!!


  1. It never fails; I always have to use the point of a ballpoint pen to reset our internet modem. I've never run over the cord but my little dogs battle the vacuum cleaner and bark constantly when it is run. The vacuum cleaner wins every time. Your needlepoint projects look great, I love the pillows! I really enjoy your blog.
