Now the long wait begins

Well as expected the unauthorized charges went through.  So wish the fraud dept had the cajones to place a stop when you verbally let them know you did not make said charges and to cancel the offending card.  But nope.  Filled out the paperwork at the branch and got a new card (yea!).  Now I get to wait 10 business days for the bank to "research" and decide if I get the funds back. 

Doing my own research - if this does happen to you, go into the branch asap!  As soon as you let them know and fill out fraud paperwork the better.  For debit card fraud they may still charge the consumer (you) $50 but if you let it slide that "fee" goes up ($500+)

My computer thankfully was virus free but we are back to not knowing where/how said wonderful person nabbed my card info in the first place.

On to much funner stuff – Stitching!!

My stitching habit is getting to be expensive!  Or at least bigger than I can get accomplished in a life-time.

This weekend a friend was downsizing her stash and I picked up The Token by Long Dog Samplers.  Its been one Ive been looking at for a while and now I have the chart and fabric (already in my stash) and now its picking out the fibers to be used.  Oh yes this one will be started this year if I can narrow the fiber color down soon enough :-p

And checking out colors on Hand Dyed Fibers I spied Vikki's conversion for The Flood.  Wow, at $64 Im going to have to save up a few months.  The fibers for Paradise Lost isnt cheap but ~ half at $36ish.  Now to figure out VC conversion for Jenny Bean Christmas and I should have my big projects ready to go for next year.  All three will be stitched on VC's Quernstone (fast becoming a favorite).

Now for pictures!
