Simple Prompt's To Keep You On Your Toe's

I've been off the posting lately, as I have been unwell. It's been hard to see the computer screen let alone to type something, this is proving to be a bit of a task thus far.

How ever I will continue and share with you an easy and successful way to remind your self of those patterns you want to make, wether they be knit, crochet or even sewing. You could also incorporate this into, those book's I'd like to read, let your mind run wild with all sorts of reminders to one's self.

Okay, I'll get on with it.

Assuming we all have access to our own computer and we all have a screen saver option, by storing a picture of the pattern you wish to make with in the, my pictures folder, stored in my documents folder, you can set the screen saver to my pictures folder and when the screen saver on your computer activates, there they are, all of those patterns or books or recepies etc, you want to get around to are there for your prompter.

Firstly, save a picture to my picture folder, using your mouse, right click any blank area on your computer screen, then select properties, then select screen saver, using the drop down menu list, click on my pictures (it may also say my pictures slideshow)
then click apply, now it is ready. If you are concerened about those lovely family pictures you may have stored in the my pictures folder, just move them to another folder and save them there.

Hope you enjoy this post, it's only taken me about an hour, which includes error fixing, if you find any please let me know.

Here are just a few that I want to get around to.

Hi, I really like the blanket with all the sleeping (and one awake!) babies on it.

Where can I find that pattern? Online? In a magazine? From a book?

It's called bundled babies, not sure where I got it from sorry, there is no reference on the 3 pages I have. You could try an online search for it.

DO you know where I can get a copy of the Warm Baby Niche's Sweater? It is stunning, but I cant make out even which "counntry Woman" magazine this was taken from. Thank you!

I'm quite sure I lost most of these patterns when my computer crashed, lesson learned, make a back up copy, sorry I cannot help you, but in saying that you brought me back to some old posts of mine I do not even remember, thank you!
