quick photos:stitching and bike.

Hi Everyone,
I have been a bit blue and so just stitching up a storm. Here is the progress on my newest sampler ( I got it on my B-day):

And here is a picture of me with my Bike:

And one sexy bike photo (note sunlight beaming down on that nice shiny Gary Fisher Simple City 3):

I'm making caps tomorrow & working at NiaH. Should be a good day.

PS I got my Tori Tix in the mail. Yippee!
PPS I received an email from a cap customer. He said that he loved the cap I sent him. I am always so happy to get feedback, and I'm over the moon when it is positive. I have been really working on improving my pattern. All of that hard work is worth it when folks are happy with my caps. It just makes my day.
PPPS Cycle City you folks did it again. I just think you are great! I was having a little issue with my gears. I stopped by and you checked out my bike: fixed the problem, put air in the tires, and tightened some bolts that hold on my rack. All of this while I waited. It took all of 8 minutes and the bike mechanic (Dave) even made time to take it for a test ride. I got the bike from them and they were so sweet and they have been so good about everything. Here is a link to there website. I just can't say enough good things about them.
