I'm Back..............

I finally have a computer up and running.  As you know from the last post, my computer died in a storm and I bought a new one with Windows 8 on it.  After several days of trying to figure that out, I took it to the computer store had them take off 8 and put on 7.  I was running XP previously of which I loved, I knew it, and now I have a learning curve.  I think I have it whipped.  At least I think I can do what I did before. 

Southern Fried Chicken
Look at this chicken.  It is Southern Fried Chicken.  It is part of a quilt with 12 different chickens.  A friend from Idaho gave me this little book to make this chicken quilt.  I took it to the Cackle and Stitch Quilting Circle, they loved it.  There are 9 of us in the group.  We decided that each of us would pick a chicken and make this quilt for our sewing room.   Take a look at the umbrella and the rug.  Click on the picture, you can make it larger.  When we finish up the quilt I will post it.  
Bottle Brush bushes............
The Bottle Brush bushes are in my backyard.  When I took this picture they were loaded with blooms and today they are even more so.

Hope all is well with you..............

I Am About to Pull My Hair Out..............

On Easter Sunday afternoon, we had a storm go through here.  The power went out, it zapped my computer.  I bought a new computer, it has Windows 8 on it.  Do I need to say more?  I don't know if I will ever get this back to what was normal.  No pictures today.  I can't figure out where they go and how to do it (on the computer).   I think this is probably the most stressful thing that I have had to deal with in a long time.  Pictures speak a 1000 words and the blog is not much without them.  I will try to be back soon. 

Hope all is well with you.
