Karen from the most gorgeous Contemporary Embroidery was maybe, just a little, showing off her computer skills with her stand-alone page (which is rather beautiful) I left a little comment and was issued a challenge in the comments on this post. So, never one to refuse a dare, I have done it, this morning, despite only about four hours sleep (or perhaps because of). The only problem was I didn't actually think about what my stand alone page was going to be so after some thought rather than a blank stand alone page (which might just be construed as showing off for the sake of it) it is the beginnings of a gallery. So thankyou Karen, without your help/push I might have forever gazed at the wonder of other people's stand-alone pages without ever attempting my own. Of course, by the end of the week I may have ten stand-alone pages!
I have also messed with my backgrounds, ending up with a simple grey as I don't really like the templates and at the moment am far too lazy to accept my son's offer of help to create my own.
