While I was having fun making swap gifts over the past couple of months, many of my ongoing projects were relegated to the back burner. Now that they’re all done and gone, I’ve been able to spend some time playing catch up.
I fell three months behind on my Tisket-A-Tasket BOM. This past weekend, I was able to complete the wool versions of the May…
I will probably start the traditional needle turn appliqué of the same three blocks in the next couple of days.
Not long after all my other swaps were put to bed, I joined the In The Good Ol’ Summertime Mini Quilt Swap…yeah, I know, I know…and as a result of some unseasonably cool and rainy weather over the last week, the last stitch was sewn last evening.
Computer Problem Update: About a week ago I downloaded an automatic Explorer 8 update prompt which caused many issues with my computer. I performed a ‘system restore’ which clearly didn’t fix the problems I was having. Yesterday morning I took it in to our local computer shop where the techie fixed it for me and it appears to be working like new again. Evidently there have been a lot of problems with the Explorer update and Windows XP. The only system it seems to be compatible with is Vista and he said even that’s not always the case. So, exercise caution if you happen to get this same update prompt.
The Moral of the Story: Computers are like men…you can’t live with them and you can’t live without them. THE END
