The power of the internet is amazing! Thanks to Joanna in NY who read the blog and emailed me a link to the magazine I now have a subscription set up for my daughter. I spoke to such a helpful and friendly guy who walked me through the process and was quietly amused at my Englishness! This has made my day! I am so grateful to Joanna for taking the time as this is going to make my daughter Caroline so happy! Almost as happy as I am at having achieved this!
Tomorrow I am going to brave Truro again with my husband. This will make life so much easier as he will be able to find the parking spot! And we are going to meet up with Sue for lunch so a good time will be had by all. I am expecting to be totally exhausted by the time I return home but at least my Christmas shopping bar the food will be over. Already several of the things I have ordered over the net have arrived and I am beginning to feel a sense of organisation pervading all I do.
There has been no time for any sewing activities though I did make a paper prototype of the little boxes which I think I will eventually see at first hand when I get my copy of Quilting Arts. If, and it is a very big IF, I get time I'd like to make a few of these for small pressies. Or special chocolates. I have earmarked Thursday for finishing off the bags. At least they are all cut out and ready to go and one of them is almost finished which is just as well as it has to be posted on Friday. And I must get to grips with my Christmas cards. Also tomorrow night I will make the Christmas puddings. They will sit over night to let the rum and Guinness saturate the fruit and then I will steam them on Thursday. I always make several so that there is one for making Christmas pudding icecream. This is the most delectible wicked recipe ever with lots of cream and sugar. Really sinful but divine! I feel tired just thinking about what I have to do so I think I'll go and make a few lists for tomorrow's spree.

  1. Isn't the internet a marvel.

    Have you had a chance to visit the Lemon Street Gallery in Truro? The Kurt Jackson paintings look intriguing from their website.
