A new toy
It was my birthday at the weekend, and so I treated myself to a new toy, an iPod Touch. I was planning to get an iPod Shuffle, so that I could upload music and talking books to play when I'm working on the sewing machine. But I was seduced by all the extra things on the Touch, and splurged. It's going to be great fun!
We managed to see Number Two Son a few days before my birthday, and he gave me a lovely book called Stitchopedia, which has instructions and projects for all different types of hand embroidery. The first thing I'm going to try is a sheep in stumpwork. DH gave me a beautiful necklace made of squares of coloured glass which he bought at the Royal Academy of Art. It's gorgeous. And then we collected Number One Son on Sunday and brought him back home with us for a few days. He gave me a CD, the Beatles' Abbey Road, which was the first thing to get loaded on my iPod Touch.
Yesterday I rested whilst DH and Number One Son went to Bristol for some computer/mobile phone type shopping. Today we're going into Wells for a wander, then NOS and I are going to play on my sewing machine as he's really keen to see how the embroidery module and the BSR work.
