iMacs rule!



Yesterday I set up my new iMac computer. How neat is this? I just plugged it in, asked it to migrate from the external hard drive and voila it works! Everything from my old computer is now on my new computer so all those cds I burned off were not necessary. Better be safe than sorry though. The only problem I had was pairing it to the wireless keyboard and that was all my fault. When I typed in the pass code it said to hit return and I didn't so when it didn't pair I thought that maybe the batteries needing changing and, as I didn't have any spare ones, Ken went out and picked some up from a local shop. I changed the batteries and it still didn't pair and then I read 'type in the pass code and press return' - opps why didn't I read what it said? When I hit the return key it worked perfectly!

For those of you who have not seen my old system go here . I must admit I do prefer the 'all white' appearance of the older iMac but this new system is much faster and the screen clarity is amazing.

Don't be fooled by the tidy desk - I can assure you that it doesn't always look like this. Take note of the Tiffany Apple paperweight. I told you I was mad about anything Apple and isn't this just the ultimate desk accessory for any Apple addict? It was a birthday present from Ken a couple of years ago.

Not much stitching done over the weekend except for some gift stitching. Hopefully, my package from NIAH will arrive shortly and I can make a start on Hannah Beeby. I have also joined the Quaker Inspired Quaker Animal exchange and will be stitching for that too. I have already chosen my animal and the finish. There are still spaces in this exchange if anyone else is interested.

Thank you for visiting
Take care

    Wow, that looks great! Isn't it funny how something small - like not hitting return - can cause so many problems. LOL

    Ooh yes please, I would love your Old English Trifle recipe :-)
