Congratulations, ladies. Please email me your address so I could send those pincushions out to you as soon as possible. Those that didn't win, fret not, I have more giveaways lined up for you. In fact, scroll down for another giveaway right at this post.
Before I mention the giveaway however, please let me show you what I've been up to. I've been busy working on Jaqueline's Mirabilia round robin.Design: Garden Beauty
Fabric: 28 count Polstitches Jobelan
Embelishment: Mill Hill Beads
I've only seen three finishes of her so far. I think she deserves to be stitched. After all, she is pretty, don't you agree? However, I admit that I did give her a slight nose job ^.^
Unsurprisingly, with the amount of confetti stitches she has, (darn roses!) frogs plagued me from the beginning till the end :(
Only a little beading on her so she's not as blingy as other Mirabilia designs but overall, I'm happy.
Here's Jackie's RR so far. I think the fabric is real pretty and perfect for it.
On to the giveaway.
I was given a free copy of My Memories Suite over a month ago (Aiks!) to use and review. It was only today that I managed to find the time to try it out. Sorry Liz!
Installing it was a breeze. Unless you're like me and didn't have Quicktime installed on your computer. After I had that installed, I was good to go as the software needs it to run.
Loading My Memories Suite for the first time, I was greeted with easy-to-follow instructions to create a new album. Once that was done, I was taken to an interface rather similar to Adobe Photoshop. I got the hang of it pretty easily and was immediately immersed in it.
Everything is pretty much self-explained. It was all trial and error for me. Don't like the result? Just undo and try again.
I figured I'll use my previous Garden Beauty photos as my basis for this review. You know, similar content, different approach? These are what I accomplished in a few hours.
My first try. Is it just me or does this have a retro feel to it? LOL! It must be the black lace, me thinks.
Second effort. Wavy stitches are the bomb, in my opinion :P
Third time's the charm. I'm in love with those flowers. Fitting companions to Garden Beauty.
What do you think? Which is your favourite?
I couldn't resist playing with Stargazer as well, my favourite finish to-date. I was going for the dramatic here. Did I achieve it?
So, would you like to win your own copy of My Memories Suite? All you need to do is:
- Check out My Memories.
- Leave a comment telling me which is your favourite kit.
