A Surprise and Finally Some Stitching!

I received an envelope from the USA this morning and couldn't for the life of me work out what it was! I looked at the return address and it was from Ranae When I opened it I found this treasure wrapped inside:) Isn't it gorgeous? She says she sent me this because my blog is special to her and I keep her inspired which made me feel on top of the world and happy:) Thank you so much Ranae. I will be hanging this piece somewhere I can see it all the time:)

I did finally manage some stitching last night although it was not much as I didn't actually sit down to stitch until about 9.30 last night. So Just Nan Morning Song came out and here is my little bit of progress.

Tonight I hope to be back to stitching properly! Karen and I have changed our night on Ink Circles Sea Stars so we're now stitching on it either Wednesdays or Thursdays. So it'll be SS for me tonight all being well:)

We've been three evenings messing about with PC's but we have ( finger's crossed) got it all sorted now. The router is up and running, we've run the network wizard and got that sorted although Zone Alarm firewall caused us headaches but we got there in the end. So now we can access shared files on either PC and Jess' laptop and share the printer. Phew! It took some getting there so we're now hoping that it'll al work next time her laptop and the other PC are turned on!

Thank you to all of you who continue to visit and to those of you who leave such lovely comments. I treasure each and every one of them:) I am slowly catching up reading and commenting on blogs and hope to get caught up completely today:)

Hugs
