I'm still here!

'Allo! It's been a bit since I've posted so I thought I'd pop in and say hey-o so that you wouldn't forget who I am :)  I'm still sans PC, but I think my BIL is getting there with it, bless him. I'd have taken a hammer to it and headed to Best Buy weeks ago if it was up to me, but it's in his hands and he keeps plugging away at it. Apparently I had one doozy of a virus that was trying to eat my computer from the inside out (and I say that almost literally). Due to a nice crack of lightning over the weekend we've also been sans internet, so I've been doing everything on my phone (not as easy as it sounds when you have big fat thumbs like moi). I have been finishing up some sewing projects, or at least getting them prepped/started, so I'll have things to share with you soon! My hexie flowers are all done--I'm ready to start on all the white shapes that will tie it all together. What else....what else... I decided to do a spring craft show, so I'm thinking on details for that... I'm madly in love with the newest nephew, and the oldest one is breaking my heart what with his going into stinkin' fifth grade in a few weeks. I'm going to be a little sad when the Olympics end, I love them so. I always have--I remember being little and just staring and staring at the TV every few years while people jumped and twirled and did whatever they do. I wish they'd get new announcers/interviewers--they're awful!! "You must feel terrible, getting the silver medal. What's going through your head?" Ummm...lady? It's a flipping silver medal. They might actually feel quite good about that feat! My sister has bellowed from the other room several times during the swimming finals interviews "OMG, I HATE this lady!!"

I suppose that's all that's been going on. Quite boring, actually, but hopefully more on the horizon. Not more boring stuff, more in the sense of more events and makings to share. What's been going on with you? Any fun summer events? Fabulous projects? I want to know!

This storm came rolling in when we were sitting on the porch the other night. I do love me a good thunderstorm, but not when it kills the internet and makes everyone scramble to carry things in off the porch that might go flying.


  1. I was worried that something bad was going on!!! The pc will be fixed!!! Don't worry I can't wait to see your hexagon flowers all sashed!!!

    I would love a summer rainfall too!!! It hasn't rained for over two months!It's so freaking hot you can't breathe!!!!

    I'm glad you're ok:D

  2. It's amazing what you can get accomplished when there is no computer around. LOLLL Can't wait to see your hexi flowers all finished and sewn up. Send some of your weather our way, it's hot and very sticky. I feel like a slippery eel most of the day.

  3. Wow bad weather there! Glad to see you around again :-) I just came back from the Olympics and it was FAB!
    Hope to see some more of your creations soon!!

  4. Well damn the internet killing storms and viruses of doom! Hope BIL manages to work his magic soon for you! I'm loving rushing home to watch the olympics right now too :o)

  5. It's just awful to be without your computer! You are very patient! I would have gone and bought another by now!!
    That dark cloud looked mighty mean!!
    I know what you mean about the Olympics! I love them too. And some of those announcers are dreadful!!!!
    I did think that Mykayla Mallory was a poop acting that way on the podium. Shame on her!!! If she were mine I would turn her over my knee!!!
    : ) XO Kris

  6. I'm glad that your problems are solved with the internet, the positive side is that you had more time to sew. I look forward to your next publication. Thanks for giving us your news. Have a happy sewing day!!! Marisa.
