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.

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.

Oh my, Elizabeth! I've heard of computers crashing but never frying! Lucky you were home. Who knows what other damage it would have caused.

Saturday morning my computer room filled with smoke and a burning smell.  I immediately shut off my computer and pulled the plug.  But then my other devices wouldn't work and no Netflix for the T.V.   Later I plugged in but the computer was on and the room filled with smoke and smell so I unplugged again.  My son stopped in on the way home from the trailer and verified that the hard drive was completely fried.  He fixed the cords so that the other stuff would still get internet and Netflix and told me he would be back on Wed. after work to help me buy another tower.  I just hate being such a nuisance to him.

One car was repaired and ready to be picked up down in town..."luckily" the tractor repairman was visiting here and could drive Paul to get the car.  Weee! We saved two gallons of gas. 

Nose is much better, eyes fading...but the little finger may yet need to visit the doctor.
