Today's Pictures.

In today's mail I received another of the Christmas round robin samplers I have been working on. This one belongs to 'Suzie' in the USA, who plans to make mobiles from the motifs that are stitched by the girls in the RR. When I have added mine, I will scan this again. I also received another eBay item in the mail - a stunning embroidered apron with a crinoline lady. I managed to save an image from eBay onto my hard drive, but unfortunately it isn't saved as a JPEG format, so I can't load it onto Picasa to put onto my blog. I have been trying for nearly an hour, and have given up!
The other pic here is of a jam jar cover that has been in my handbag for a few months. It was my 'waiting room' project - the one that stayed in my bag, and was worked on whenever I was killing time in a doctors or hospital waiting room. I had hours to kill today whilst waiting for Ken at the hospital, so I was able to finish this off, and start another one as well! (See my report on Patra's Other Place for an update on Ken)

Gina, what format is your Ebay photo? I have a good graphic program and can probably convert it for you. Let me know what the format is and I'll let you know if I can convert it for you.

Hi Pam, It is in Microsoft Word. Dunno how I came to save it as that, but I am not very clued up when it comes to graphics on the PC! I could forward it to you if you like, and you could play with it?

The RR piece is really cute. It's handy having a 'waiting room' stitching piece - I did the same when I went in to have my gallbladder removed this year ... I was sat there for 8 hours before I went through to theatre - thank goodness for crossword books and stitching!
