Thankyou all for your birthday wishes, it's been a bit of whirlwind week, and I'm getting to grips with a new laptop, which is very nice but I'm not really technically minded, anyway as you can see I have managed to upload a photo. Maybe that's not such a big deal but dh has updated my photo cropping programme, and it doesn't make as much sense as the old version I was using. I only know how to do certain things and end up with 3 different programmes running at the same time. My favourite programme for doing things is Corel draw, simply because they give you a sheet of paper, aslong as I've got that sheet of paper I know where I am, but if I'm in Corel and I need to crop something I have to take it to Paint Shop Pro, then take it back to Corel draw, computers can be so frustrating, or is it us, misusing them or not instructing them what to do that's the problem!
Anyway Mayday came with more sunshine and the postman bearing gifts from my Knitters Treat Exchange Pal, Suzie, this is a fantastic, well chosen package that Susie has put together for me. There are some really quirky ideas in Knitscene, and its not a magazine I have seen, there's also this beautiful handpainted merino fibre, and the 2 balls of wool, you're absolutely right Susie, you can never have enough wool, there's the junior mints, simple perfection, and how did Susie know about the facial scrub....I was trying some foundation with a Clinique beautician Saturday, who was telling me I needed to use a facial scrub and this Mint Julep arrives, I tried it out this morning and it does make your skin feel so tingly and fresh.
All in all it's a fabulous package and I've really enjoyed being part of this Knitters Treat Exchange, thankyou so much Suzie!
