Moving my blog that is. Much as I've enjoyed using Typepad, I don't think I use it enough for what I pay for it, so I'm off to a free blog instead. I'm losing quite a few things that I... Continue reading

Just over halfway and really enjoying this one. Continue reading

Apart from one book, which was a re-read, all of the nineteen books that I've read this month were either from the library or on my Kindle. I haven't made a single dent in Mt. TBR. Oh dear. It's getting... Continue reading

That's a very clever beehive and I love the cat block :)
July is looking lovely. I enjoyed stitching those little strawberries too. I don't envy you those wee blossoms but I know you'll make short work of them once you get started :)
It didn't take too long to finish off the last few bits of this. The leaves on the trees were the most time consuming as I had to keep stopping and starting. The rest went really quickly. I'm rather pleased... Continue reading

That's worked out brilliantly Tree. I love all of your changes. It looks great :)

They are lovely. I actually like the Windmill one best, closely followed by the butterfly. You're going great guns on this one!

Oh crikey. That sounds an interesting one.

I've been plodding along with this and thought it might be a good idea to stop and take a photo as I haven't got much more to do. I kept wanting to do just a little bit more before doing... Continue reading

There's a thought Tree. Perhaps I should test that out ;)

That's it exactly. Frustrating because of the problem, but also because you can't figure it out. Such a relief when you do. Bit of a Doh moment too :)

For years my laptop has been driving me insane. It has a couple of little quirks and one of them was so bad that I was on the verge of replacing the laptop even though I can't actually afford to.... Continue reading

Oh my! That is lovely, isn't it :)

I'm quite pleased with how much of this I've got done so far, especially as it was odd starting from the top. Don't ask me why I decided to do this one differently as I have no idea. I've started... Continue reading

It's beautiful Tree. I've loved watching this one appear, block by block :)

I've finally made a start on this one but haven't really made enough progress to post a photo of where I'm up to. I do have a photo of the stash for it though and will have a progress pic... Continue reading

Wow! The Library and The Owls both look wonderful now that they're finished and framed. You really are on a roll with finishes at the moment :) Love that bag too!

Thank you :) And the way I see it is that a spend for a new project is a reward for finishing an old one. I shall look forward to seeing your start on this one :)

I had to use Picasa before on holiday once. I liked it much better than the Windows thing but it was hard to get used to after Elements. Always good as a backup though so thanks for reminding me about it :)

So, apparently I had a corrupted MediaDatabase.db3 file. Of course I did. No idea what one of those is, but thanks to Google (and several interesting Forum conversations that led me to the correct solution on the Adobe website), I'm... Continue reading

I haven't done much stitching lately due to my painful thumb making it hard to hold the needle but I have made a bit of progress on this and have a little row of books appearing. It was touch and... Continue reading

18 books read this month including the new Lee Child which I loved, a book of short travel stories which were hilarious, a Jeeves and Wooster which made me giggle and one by Hemingway which made me sad. Quite a... Continue reading
