I had a lovely surprise in the post from Claire – one of her beautiful New Year cards. Here’s a picture of the cards she made, the one she sent to me is the bottom left in pink/green. I borrowed the photo from Claire’s blog as hers is far better than the one I took, it’s so gloomy here this evening I just can’t get anything to look good.
I haven’t got a lot to show stitching wise unfortunately. On Friday morning I was stretching to reach something from a shelf in the kitchen, a sneeze appeared from absolutely nowhere and I felt something “go” in my back. I’m not sure what I did but for a few minutes it was absolute agony, I almost fainted, felt like I was going to throw up and got so hot that I had to take my blouse of and stand with the back door open to cool off! It’s been a bit sore all weekend and whilst I’ve been okay sitting at my desk messing around on my computer I haven’t been able to get very comfortable to stitch.
I did manage to get a couple more rows of Carol Singers stitched though and it’s looking great, if I do say so myself LOL. As with the last rows, I still have to add the beads.
Instead of stitching I’ve spent the weekend setting up my new computer. After years and years of being a Windows user both at home and at work I have decided to make the switch over to a Mac. Thanks to a very welcome tax refund from the Inland Revenue I was able to collect my new iMac on Friday and I have to say that I’m only sorry I never made the switch earlier. It’s so quick, easy to use and after just a couple of days I have it set up exactly the way I like it and I’ve had no problems in converting over to the new Operating System. I’ve even managed to network mine and Phill’s computers so we can see each other’s files. I still have lots to keep me busy, as I am going through the thousands of pictures I have stored on my external hard drive to make sure they are properly labelled and to delete the really bad ones.
