A stitchy day

I'm still on my holidays as yet so my time is all my own at the moment. So far, I haven't got as much done while I've been off than I thought I would.
I spent a good part of yesterday stitching on the Buddha that I am stitching for my dad's meditation teacher. Its looking fab but its only about half done and I have only 2 weeks left. Argghh and its stitched in a variety of white, cream and browns. I may go blind stitching it.
For a bit of variety today, I decided to trying and finish off some of the huge pile of finished stuff that I have. I managed to finish off my Halloween exchange piece which I can't share a picture of as yet. I'm really pleased with how it looks. I've going to get it all parcelled up over the weekend and do a big post office run on Monday. I'm going to try out some new finishing ideas over the weekend so hopefully I will have a few pictures to share over the weekend.
My kit for Chatelaine Japanese Garden arrived today too. I just need to get the black belfast linen and I'm all set for November.
The main distraction this week however has been the new computer. My shiny new Imac arrived on Wednesday and I spent most of the day on Wednesday copying files across to the new computer and trying to get used to the differences between XP and OS X. So far I'm loving it and the transition hasn't been as bad as I thought it might been. So far being the operative word - I'm hoping that saying that doesn't come back to haunt me.
