Momma was messing around with the computer and guess what happened? She tried to downloads some apps from the app store and they wouldn't download. Keep in mind this computer is NEW and came with Windows 8 installed. There was a option to upgrade to Windows 8.1 which momma allowed and everything was fine until she tried to download some apps. The Microsoft Mr. Fix it had three choices for troubleshooting the issue: The first two were simple enough that momma could easily follow but they did not resolve the issue. The third option was more complicated so momma opted to "restore" the computer to the original state. The only problem with that was it wiped out Windows 8.1 and now we are back to Windows 8. Phooey! Momma searched and search for the FREE Windows 8.1 offer but couldn't find it. And to make matters even worse, momma has already written the Dogster Memorial and it went off into cyber space. Momma was in a panic...Where the heck is my memorial??? Luckily after nearly having a heart attack, momma found the document on the computer so she quickly had daddy re-set the printer information and then printed it out, just in case - BOL
In between messing with the computer, momma took some photos of some of the quilts she has made over the years. Often times momma gives them away to family or people who have undergone major events. One went to a family that lost everything in one of the roaring fires that Southern California experienced. The quilts that go to family members are only "on loan" just in case they do not take care of them. Grandpa took the three quilts that momma had made for him and Grandma and threw them in the bottom of a closet and the cat made them into a soft potty box. Momma took them back after she found out, washed them and got all the stains out. She then gave them away to people who would appreciate them.
Anyhow, here are some photos:
Here is a small wall hanging but momma can't remember what the pattern is called (she's old you know). It will be hung in the guest bedroom once that room gets finished.
This is another wall hanging - patter called Autumn leaves.
Momma has lots of fabric so she has lots of scraps.
Here is a snap shot of the messy sewing room. All that stuff in the background is FABRIC! Yup, momma is a fabricholic - BOL, BOL.
Momma is supposed to be working on the Birthday quilt for daddy but ran out of the yellow plaid fabric so it is sitting on chair undone. Hopefully there will still be flannel fabric at Walmart when the humans go to town next week. If not, momma is going to have to get creative on how to finish daddy's quilt.
For those of you who are interested in making quilts and have never done them before, momma suggests that you start with either the TRIP AROUND THE WORLD or most of the LOG CABIN patterns (Be careful of some of the really fancy LOG CABIN instructions for pictured quilts are they can be complicated).
