And by this time next week I will have finished this dress from October's copy of Making Magazine, which I am making for my friend Alissa. We went to choose the material from Belle Fabrics and I think she will look great in it, she is size 8, pretty and nice... don't you just hate young people :)
On Friday, I met someone from Race Online 2012 which is an organisation set up to try and encourage even more people to go online by the end of 2012. Later this year they have a campaign to make us use the extra hour when the clocks go forward called Go on Give an Hour which asks you to introduce someone new to the internet. Now working on the principle, that you are all busy people so you will do it, why not consider signing up to do this as a Digital Champion?
So I am making up a list of half a dozen websites that I would show someone who is new to the internet:
1stuniquegifts and Handmade Monday because Wendy's site is a great read and a brilliant portal to other crafters
Ravelry - A knitters paradise with patterns, advice and yarn sources
BBC - I love news, I love the BBC and I love being able catch up with viewing and listening
Google - A website which became a verb and is like having an Encyclopedia Britannica by your side without lugging round all 26 volumes
Hotmail - My form of email communication
UK Governors - I have been a school governor for over 20 years and this group always have the answer no matter what the question and unlike other services there is someone around to give an opinion even at weekends.
Now I have told you mine, share yours with me in your comments... naturally all your blogs and websites are a given!
