Terri, I am very fond of afternoon tea myself. Cucumber sandwiches (cut into fingers without the crusts), scones with strawberry jam and whipped cream. As for the malt - on this side of the ocean it means whiskey as in a single malt - and yes a shot in the tea would do nicely. :lol:

Rosemary, I got the photo onto my desktop - manipulated it so that it was distorted like an hour glass but when I tried to upload it back onto the forum it wouldn't accept it! :( So you will have to consider my turn over and passed on.

Rita to pass it on, jut post the completed picture so we can see what you have done, then the next person can right click on your offerings.

BTW for everyone with macs - your on your own as to how your computer works :wink:

Terri, if you are with Windows you can join in using Paint (it should be under 'Accessories', from 'All Programmes'),just remember to change the name slightly when you save it.

How long to play? I would suggest until the end of Lorchan's birthday party, that is Sunday evening, and we have already started :wink: .

Everyone who gets to add a bit is a winner. (By the way when I wrap pass the parcel for my DD's party's I usually stop counting after 20+ layers, one year it took us 2 sittings to get to the middle :twisted: :lol: )

Of course, it's the fun! I guess my left brain poked up. Actually, I've never used a photo programme, so not even sure if I can play! My friend's BD is tomorrow also, and her first daughter. I've asked them over for some 'tea', I'm gonna try to do it the British way with scones and stuff on a tiered plate. Lorchen, you are welcomed to join us I'll put out a plate in your honour! :lol:

I want it! Some obstacles. :( :( :( I have a Mac too and I also have to get and learn a picture editing program. Watching what all of you do with this party game may provide me with the motivation to get with doing and learning how to use a picture editing program. I will party another way. Meantime it is the communion quilt. :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: Still!!! Lois

Pass the parcel!

Ok I've worked out a variation that should be do-able :wink: We start with a picture of a parcel and instead of unwrapping it, we add layers of decoration to it (or around it)
2575_CIMG5857.JPG

Step 1: Post 'I've got it' - only one person can have it at a time!
Step 2: right click on the photo, then click 'save picture as' (put it some where you can find it easily!)
Step 3: open the picture in your favourite picture editing program and add to the picture (try not to completely obliterate all that has gone before)
Step 4: re-post your newly enhanced picture. Title your post 'available' Try not to take too long between your first and second posts.

Now is everyone sitting comfortably? and we'll begin....

Hey, what's going on here! I take my eye off you for a couple of days and there's a party going on! So tomorrow's the day Lorchen? Well I guess I will just have to dust off something suitable to wear. A whiskey sour for me thanks! :D

My dad was German and they always made a big thing of the 60th birthday. I bought some fabric today, but nothing hot pink, like Lois yet! I'm working on it!! There is an outlet store near here - I'm sure they should do hot pink. I'll keep u updated. Wow! My first International Birthday Party!!

Horlicks???!!!! Rosemary, I'll have that when my 90th birthday comes along. :)

I'm intending to have fun all weekend, because, being German, we also make a bit of a fuss about this coming Sunday (German Mother's Day). I was actually born on a Sunday, made it with less than 10 minutes to spare, and it was Mother's Day in 1952.

I have three little packages waiting here. So, if you post a picture here of either you in party gear, or the textile project you have been having fun with on Saturday and/or Sunday, I'll pop the names (if there are more than three) in a hat (no, not the wedding fascinator, Rosemary) and let my son pick three names. How about it? You have till Sunday night. I'll only do the draw when I come back from work on Monday.
