Re: Secret Santa

Just picked up my Secret Santa--all the way from France. What is weird is that they posted this parcel on the same day I posted my Secret Santa! :shock: Now here is the problem. I have already squeezed it and gently shook it. Do I REALLY have to wait a whole FOURTY-EIGHT hours to open it? I mean it ...

Re: would like to connect through facebook

Me too, Derry! I have only been using it for a week a so. (I joined because my classmates wanted to start a group there so that we could help each other out as we work towards our various jobs/careers in ESL). However, since I joined, I have become quite addicted to Farmville, FishLife and ZooVille ...

Re: would like to connect through facebook

Hello everyone,

I just joined Facebook last week. So if you like you can 'Friend' me. I am using my real name, so just identify yourself as an Isher in your request and I would love to add you as a friend.

Re: Yet more good wishes

Merry Christmas Mike and to everyone on Ish. If you are travelling for the holidays, I hope your journeys are safe ones and that everyone takes advantage of the season to get some "rest and relaxation" in.

Also, best wishes for 2010.

Re: old fashioned icing

Susie,

Your cakes look fab! Not a bit amateurish at all. :santa:

Re: I've started a blanket...

SPS,

that does do seem like a huge project. The good thing about crocheting is the goes quickly. However, I have never done anything close to that big---so best of luck to you and keep us posted. I am sure the final result will make the effort worthwhile.

Re: Non Christmas

We no longer 'do' Christmas in the 'traditional' sense now that we don't have children at home. We don't exchange gifts unless they are home made and useful and after years and years of being the hostess with the mostest to countless guests on Christmas Day (and ending up broke and exhausted) we no...

Re: Non Christmas

I have come to really hate Christmas because its just so stressful. Its one mad panic to buy some presents for people, not because I have found something that I know they will love but because I have to, because it is CHRISTMAS!!! I am a Christian so will be going to church for midnight mass and on...

Re: first I spun and then I crochet...

Well done, SE!

I wish I could do useful stuff like knit/crochet hats and mits. I don't like buying them because I have a habit of losing them so making them would be more economical I think.

Too cute, MrsF. I especially love the dress with the hem work. It looks like a lot of hours of labour but sooo worth it. :santa:
