in it.......he does make me laugh!

He was very lucky to win his birthday cake
in the Kelburn Primary Christmas fair raffle.

So a big thanks to VIKING CUPCAKES
who created this wonderful tool themed
cake........and it was yummy!

I know it may be slightly mad.....but new computer blues!

First the good stuff from this week.
Lovely felting pack for another lovely customer.

Then some "Woodland"  themed locks
and yummy mulberry silk.

I have at last had to give in and buy a new computer.
I don't like to moan....but oh my it's been a struggle.
Trying to learn how to work on the new(to me) Windows 8 format
and it's taken me a whole day to access my blog, I am that bad!

I am trying to be positive but its hard going......
