Firstly, I had some amazing post. A huge parcel arrived from Julie. She had emailed me to say it was coming but I couldn't even begin to imagine what would be in it!
It was so well packed I used my teeth to open it while lying in bed. Big mistake...padded envelopes are filled with a fibrous material which I learned, flies everywhere including into one's mouth when one uses teeth as a envelope opener!
I was undaunted: grabbed the envelope with my grasping fingers and pulled!
And look what came out!
I was completely overwhelmed. I am thrilled with the RSN disk: I have an older computer which is perfect for it. I can't wait to have a play.
Secondly, because of a strange grey, fluff like material which now covered the whole bed I felt drawn to clean the whole house and so that means I get tomorrow off! Yay!
I was so pleased with all the material and felt I felt I had to do something to say thank you. So after a busy morning cleaning all the house and hoovering, I sat my bum down and played with other 'evil' program which hates me, and I came out with:
There is a booboo on this picture and I have made a few changes to the actual chart but this is the gist: and of course this picture doesn't show the colours quite right!
I have made a start on my Hare Leaped into the Fire chart...I am loving it so far and have learned a few new things.
1. Check the threads rather than rely on the computer program
2. Remember what kind of fabric you stitching on: I always seems to forget what is what because I take them out of the bags and then can't remember which one goes where!
Right: that's me done. I have a busy week. DS is going to secondary school tomorrow for a taster day.
I am still in shock because my eldest son (18) has gone to the UK and I miss him soooooo much: not sure how I can handle losing the other one as well! And on Wednesday I have the hospital for another scan on another lump this time in my neck. I am not worrying about it. I don't have time, not when there is so much creativity to be a part of!
I notice I have some new followers. Hi, welcome to my little bit of cyberspace. Please leave a comment saying you are new so I can come and
stalk follow your blogs as well. Extra reading material and inspiration is always welcome!
Have a happy, perfect week and when we next meet hopefully I will have some new owl friends to show you xx
