2nd Sleeve Finished!

I have finally finished the second sleeve for my blue linen dress. I'm hoping to have the dress ready to debut at Midwinter Coronation!

I am also hoping to get opinions on which version of documentation you think is better. I have done two, which vary slightly in aspect. The first is my project journal created through Notebook . This is more documenting the dress as a whole.
The second I wrote up in Google Documents and is just in regards to the embroidery

I would appreciate any comments in regards to which version is better in terms of documentation and presentation. I'm trying to decide which format to use for future projects Notebook or Google Docs. I like that I can access Google Docs free from any computer, but I also really like the look of the Notebook program. All thoughts would be really appreciated.

Newsletter December

Dear honourable Lords and Ladies, gentle members of the "Dragon Needle Embroidery Guild" and "-eMail Group"!

December contains the most wonderful days and the most busy ones too and because November didn't bring many changes since the guild report I send you a very short newsletter this time.

The 'Something to keep you warm' challenge is due to the end of December - I am very nosy how many projects will be finished due to this deadline and also if I will be able to finish my project. Jahanara and I communicated about possible solutions concerning the completion of the single projects and I think we found a very good solution - more information about our solution and the challenge 2009 in the next newsletter.

Many thanks to the local guild heads, all participants of the Dragon's Needle Embroidery Workshop, "Something to keep you warm" challenge and to all members of the Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild - I wish you a relaxed time and merry christmas - may all your wishes come true.

Please keep on sharing your wonderful work - regardless if embroidery, woven tapestry, illumination, wood-, leather- or metal-work,.. every project is a great inspiration for other people!

Yours in Service
Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild Head
