New toy, and sites

Sorry, still no stitching to show you today.  I did do something but can't show you yet.  I also had a grand shovel-out (still not done!) of my studio to make room for my new toy...


I know, it just looks like a black and grey box,
but it's actually a laser printer.
I finally got totally fed up with having to pay so much to buy
ink cartridges for my old printer.
It scanned and photocopied and printed in colour
but the ink was beyond belief. 

So....
this basic black toner printer is
my answer.
I will still keep the old one for when I want
the extra features, but this one will
be my workhorse.  

I even installed it all by my own widdle self!!!

Here's some more interesting 'stuff' for you to explore...

- Sally Mavor has posted a photo of her latest creations and it's a WOW!  Go HERE to see.

- if you are interested in embroidery patterns of the free sort, there's a great group on Flickr HERE.  You will need to join the group to access the patterns but there are absolutely oodles of them!

- Art Chix Studio, which is a Canadian company, always has fun and interesting things on offer, but these have definitely caught my eye.  Aren't they cute?

not long bought a new printer myself...don't even talk about the price of ink. Why is it sooooo expensive? I don't understand it at all.
