Managed to iron all my pinwheels today.  I am looking forward to seeing all 90 of them together.  
I haven't had time to do much tonight as I had to go to a meeting at school with Guitar Hero so I thought I would show you something that my Dad made.  It is typical of his sense of humour.
This is a Genuine Leather Irish calculator!  
It is easy to operate.
Needs no batteries.
Needs no maintenance.
Can be used left or right handed.
Can be used as a calibrator.
Complete with memory card See "M".
Light weight.
Fully floating left or right hand thumb.
Can be used by young or old.
Can be used as beer mat.


1. Insert four fingers and one thumb of either left or right hand into holes.
2. Calculator is now ready for use.
3. Memory cord may wound round any finger if memory is required.
4. Scale on the edge may be used as calibrator.

This Irish Calculator will give years of trouble free service.  To keep it looking like new, wipe over once a year with saddle soap.

Hee Hee Hee!

Till next time.......happy stitching.
