HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY 

I am resolving to finish 2 projects I have set up. One is a Binche learning piece, which is quite difficult for me. I am intimidated by it. The 2nd is a floral Bucks which I intend to decorate a purse. (Enlarged and worked in thick thread so it will hold up to use) This one also intimidates me. I have been using my cat as an excuse, but he has calmed down.  I keep on thinking of simple projects that won't take a lot of…

Hi, Lorelei;

Best,

Dear Lorelei,

I just received the message below, and it looks like spam to me.
Can you inform me about mr. James Pollard? Thanks!

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mr.jamespollard100@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

OK. Hope your computer works better!

I tried to send you a message about my websites, which have changed their web addresses. They used to be

http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm
http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/collection/index.htm

They are now

http://www.gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/index.htm
http://www.gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/lace/collection/index.htm

I note that, for example, the link at the start of the Beginners group
http://laceioli.ning.com/group/bobblinlace-beginners
doesn't work any more. It needs www. in!
