If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Trying photos again:

Comment by Riana Noyes on Saturday

Elizabeth, sounds like you are all set. My old laptop which was our primary use also needs to remain plugged in, or it starts getting alzheimers...hubby has replaced with new. But l know how old one works, even though slow , so l now get to keep it all to myself for embroidery files. I don't use embroidery machine often, but l like having it available when l need it especially for labels.l use my tablet daily for it's camera.

Elizabeth, glad you are all up and running again.  WHAT an experience!

I have accomplished one more project on this RV trip, a Square Dance block quilt. And I finished it in my outside quilting room :)  

Been trying for 30 minutes to add a photo, and keep getting an error message.  I'll try the picture again another day.

\Computer is all fixed.  I have a new tower with hard drive and all my other stuff fits in fine.  Now I have to add to my knowledge of Windows 10.  Jim is such a sweetheart!

As soon as I have May and June sewed together, I'll post a picture.

I think your temperature quilt will be more understandable than mine.  Will you post pictures of progress.  I need to do something with my unfinished top...but since it was emotional-color reactions to temperatures,I find parts of it rather unpleasant.

I must confess that I was scared!  But I think it would not have happened without me turning on the computer and pulling the plug stopped the computer from further action.  Riana, the smoke alarm did not go off luckily and it really is sensitive.  It goes off when Hubby bakes chicken in the stove.  But we've never had the sprinkler go off in the building in the case of fires in other units.  Maybe we don't have one?

I'm now using my laptop.  The battery has gone on it so I keep it plugged in.  I phoned Jim last night and told him I'd like to use this as my principal device so he just has to install stuff and change wires.  He looks after computer security for a great many government departments so he is as knowledgeable as I could ask for.  And he is so good to me.

I am working of the month of June for my temperature quilt and I am really enjoying it.  Every day I tell everyone the high and low forecast in terms of my colour range.  For example, today is a rust-orange day.  The highest is brown and the lowest is white.

Yesterday I had to buy 1/2 metres of 2 yellows, an orange and a pink because I had run out.  Fortunately F-land had 100% cotton on sale for $6.50 Cd.  I'm going to keep my stash low, but it seems I have lots of dark.

OMGosh, Elizabeth! How scary! So glad you were home or it could have been more than a computer that had to be replaced. Wow!

Yikes, Elizabeth that must've been scary. I suppose the smoke alarms went off as well to add to the least no automatic sprinklers were set off. I doubt your son feels you are a nuisance...more that he is happy to help you out as you'd done countless times as he grew up! Love is give & glad he's there when you need him.

Good thinking to pull the plug.
