Exposed!


Yes, Bobbi, hostess for the SP8 group that I've been part of has posted a list of (almost) everyone she's matched, so that we can track one another down! Which gives me a good excuse to upload this image, the very first that I've taken (and transferred to the computer) with my new digital camera. Francesca (who's been spoling me rotten, and who told me how to add links) was so right when she said I should've taken pix yesterday, so I took the plunge today and bought the camera. Then it all went downhill. Believe me, blood, sweat and tears (and a small G&T) have been involved. For reasons I fail to understand, I accidentally started to set up the camera with Finnish as the default language (prompting long call to HP Technical help). Then I accidentally shot several videos of my leg (hmm, crumpled brown linen, the new box office sensation, not!!). Then I managed to take this picture and transfer it to the computer. Then I spent , eek, more than 2 hours trying to find where the image was stored so that I could upload it. In the meantime I kept accidentally uploading all sorts of things, hooray for Blogger's draft mode which let me delete the utterly random images. I hope it gets easier!

Finnish'ed things, Sue, what a brilliant idea, maybe I will now finish everything that I start. And, yes, yes, I'm planning to join the great sheep hunt (got very excited when I spotted that on Ruth's blog) but have no idea how to upload/add the button. I can't believe that I'm so computer illiterate these days!

I can't help thinking your mistake was to have only a small G&T, and that things would have at least appeared to go much more smoothly through a larger glass. Congrats, though, on entering the digital age! It will be fun to see more of your Things, whether Finished or Un.

I've made some more stitch markers with earrings found in charity shops and little charms I picked up at an antiques place. Mail me and I'll send a couple to you so that your last stitch need never unravel again!

hi e-j, yes a larger G&T would've made things for more interesting but (alas) it was the very bottom of the gin bottle! And thanks for the wonderful stitch marker offer, will email you about that!

Well done Rosie. Happy sheep hunting!
