Can you believe it? Touch wood, technology finally seems to be on my side again! I am the proud owner of a new laptop, and revelling in the fact that I no longer have to sit at my desk to type, but can instead make use of the lovely, comfy chairs and sofas in the downstairs part of the house! I also now have a keyboard that can type all (yes, that’s ALL) of its letters at first touch, so in future, any typos you come across are just the result of my being a bit haphazard, rather than the keyboard randomly omitting letters I have actually requested. Hurrah!
But the BEST thing about it, is that IT HAS USB POINTS THAT WORK! Finally, for the first time since summer, I can attach my printer, and therefore print off documents, and scan things again. This means that in addition to the new weaving kits, I can finally get going with the stitchery charts and kits again. Well, actually, I’ve decided on a slight change of direction, and the needlework charts are going to be available in book form, in the future, rather than as kits, with some still available as individual charts. I will be re-vamping the needlework pages in the near future, so watch this space!
So this lovely little laptop is making my life a LOT easier, just now. Forgive the excess of capital letters in this post, but I’m very excited about it!
Oh, you know what else I’m happy about? Okay, December is a busy month; but I’ve decided not to worry about re-launching the needlework books until the New Year, which means I have a good few weeks in which I can spend any spare time weaving. You would think I had done a lot of that in the weeks running up to the craft fair, but actually, the last couple of weeks were all about the preparations, with VERY little weaving time. I have my eye on some lovely new yarns to play with. This month, despite Christmas madness going on around me, I plan to RELAX… Wish me luck!
