Windows 8

With the advancement of the technical age these days, my desk top and lap top computers were ancient by today's standards.  Slower than molasses in January.   So I decided to purchase a new lap top. As mentioned in my previous post, my knowledge of computers is zero, so my son who is an IT manager with a large home appliance company, set it up for me.  Thank you, RB.  Now I am just playing around with it, to become comfortable with Windows 8. 

It was important to me to have a reliable computer, to keep in contact with friends and relatives across the pond, and you, my blogger friends.  I do use my computer and books as dinner companions, which goes against all of the rules I was taught, but rules are meant to be broken.  

On the quilting note, I have started a new wall hanging, as well as working on other WIP's.  Allotting myself an hour and a half each day to get into my sewing room.  There are so many things to do at this time of the year, and I was not giving myself any time for my quilting.   The dust deep enough to write my name and those  weeds and long grass will still be there when my sewing time has expired.

Have a good weekend everyone.
