This year for the first time ever I have run out of time and there are a couple of bears who will remain behind! As usual time waits for no man and I have just not managed to complete everything I had planned. Does anyone else who stitches bears by hand find that you acquire a hole in the top of your middle finger which seems just to attract the top of the needle with every stitch you take?
As my computer suffered irreversible damage in the big move I finally acquired a new PC in January. It came with the dreaded Windows Vista but also with an offer to upgrade to Windows 7 (for a small fee). As I dislike Vista I decided to acquire Windows 7, all well and good. The software arrived and was installed without (I thought) any problem. Just a few days ago I suddenly acquired a little warning at the foot of my screen advising that I was using an 'illegal' copy! I spent a lot of time on the internet trying to solve the problem and also discovered that Windows charge for on line advice! Finally phoned their support number and after some 45 minutes (at my expense) managed to sort out the problem and I now have a legimate copy of Windows 7. However I have a new learning curve to try and assimilate my knowledge of Dreamweaver with this latest version of Windows! After much bad language and frustration resorted to the very slow laptop to update our webpage. Our latest creations are almost all up for viewing including Megan's amazing Alice set.
If you would like to take a look our webpage can be found at http://www.essentialbears.net. Enjoy the visit.
Tomorrow we are off to London and I will report back on the show next week. Looking forward to seeing beary friends on Sunday.
Just outside our garden fence and under the trees is a carpet of crocus flowers, will hopefuly get some good pictures when they open up a little more. I also found a brave snowdrop a prelude to spring perhaps?
Have a good restful weekend..............
