A few finishes.....
AND..........about the computer picture problem, I'll share what I learned. Actually it's what my husband learned because I refused to call the technical people at the cable company. They always make me feel completely computer illiterate. If you are having problems downloading/uploading, you can test your computer speed at a place called "Speedtest.net". Check the download/upload speed with your router plugged in. Then, you plug in an ethernet cable into the router so that you are connected directly to the internet (rather than being wireless). If the speeds improve dramatically like they did for us - then it's a router problem. A new router will be delivered to us in a few days and I'm plugged into the internet directly to load these pictures. Now I don't feel so illiterate!! Makes perfect sense now, doesn't it?! It was great to see that little upload bar actually work when I uploaded the pictures. Funny how little things can make us happy!
I almost forgot, the lottery gods were smiling down on me and I was so fortunate to win Margot's giveaway over at The Pattern Basket. Look at what I won! I've admired this fabric for months - I actually had it bookmarked to purchase when I received some extra spending money later in the year. So, now I will get the fabric I've been waiting for - pain free! How lucky I am!!
