Computer Woes Over!

Yea!!  Got my laptop back.  Thank goodness it just needed a new battery!  Apparently, batteries can swell and create havoc with the track pad.....and I thought it was possessed!

Back to posting.  This quilt was our 2012 Kaffe Club row of the month.  Most of the blocks in each row are "wonky", which for me was really a challenge because I like things to line up and points to match.  Even the scallops are wonky, and if you zoom in you can see the narrow piping in the binding.  This is my second quilt using all Kaffe fabric.  We had an exhibit of 19 of these quilts at HMQS this past spring.  None of them looked alike because of row placement and color choices.  This one was really fun to make.  The rows were all designed by Kaye Evans, who has taught Kaffe Club for six years.  Thanks Kaye!

Computer woes continue!

I'm trying this out on my iPad.  My laptop is in the Mac hospital!  The track-pad was going crazy, doing strange things even when I wasn't touching it.  Possessed?!

Now if someone could tell me how to upload a photo from Photo Stream, I'd really be a happy camper.  Yep, just wasted two hours trying!

Bad Computer!!

My little old Mac is giving me hissie fits! Think it is time to take it in to the 'puter Dr.  Anyway, I can't believe that it is almost the end of August already!  This summer has been busy, but fun.  We spent a week in NM.  Santa Fe and Red River were wonderful.  We will definitely go back for another visit.  Of course visiting quilt shops there and on the way were a must and I found some neat "had to have" things.

Red River is a ski town and our condo faced the river and one of the chair lifts.  The funniest thing ever was this little deer.....

We were on our balcony and luckily my camera was within reach.  Have you ever heard of a deer squatting?  We haven't.  Plus, she kind of looks like a kangaroo!  Well, she squatted and then.....

she went a few feet upstream and got a drink!
