In mid-August my computer died, and I was only able to get sporadic access via other people's machines, which meant I couldn't post or even do much commenting. However I am never the most voluble of bloggers or commenters so I don't suppose my absence was noticed at all!
I haven't got my scanner linked up yet, but I can show you the thread I bought from ds9designs.
The weather here in Lot is turning colder, and it is expected to rain all day, so I may be able to get a bit more done today. :)
