Grrrrr.....

...don't you hate it when you take photos and then can't get them to load up for some reason?  I took lots today for this blog post and the camera won't upload to the laptop.  I've put the battery on charge in case that was the problem, I don't think it was but it was the easiest and cheapest remedy to try.

So news without photos I'm afraid!

I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on Shirlee's blog recently and a gorgeous little New Testament arrived today.  It is leather bound and I have to admit that I keep sniffing it (love the smell of leather!) It arrived from across the pond in record time - obviously 'someone' knew I was in need of divine inspiration :)  It is gorgeous, thank you Shirlee!  (There would be a photo here, except there isn't!)

I did a little bit of stitching on Henry VIII on Tuesday but haven't got round to showing it.  (Insert photo here).

I got my order of gorgeous Sparklies fabrics today.  Black Dahlia and Pumpkin Patch quilting fabrics and Pumpkin Patch and Leo in 28ct lugana (insert photo here).  Also Kate offered a draw for tickets to the Dublin and Harrogate Stitching shows.  I was really lucky and won a ticket to Harrogate.  So I will be going next Saturday!!  Lucky me :)

No photos means we can use our imagination to see all the goodies you got today... I imagine you swimming in a sea of pretty fabric LOL!

So sorry about the photo problems. I've never had any of those with Blogger but heaven knows I've had & continue to have my share of others! So glad the package arrived so quickly : )

I too had problems loading my photos till I got Google Chrome. Then works like a dream. I was using firefox. I still have it but when I go to post on my blog I use Google Chrome - love it. The names of the fabrics you got sound lovely. Wonderful gift from Shirlee.
love Annette
