It's All Coming Together

Little by little, things are coming together.  My new computer was shipped yesterday so I expect it to arrive either tomorrow or Saturday.  I ordered an external hardrive/backup today and Dell's Installation Service is scheduled to come here on December 1st to set everything up, transfer my files and install my software for me.  Yes, I can do it all myself but I don't want to.  I just want to sit down and do my work.  Dell can do it all a lot faster than I can and they can get it all right the first time whereas, if I have to do, heaven knows how long it would take me!

This is all quite exciting for me!  This computer is 15 years old.  I'm thankful that it still works but it's pretty slow now.  The new computer will be very fast!

I've been stitching on a pretty white pillow with purple embroidery and embellishments.  I have a bit more stitching to do on it but it's almost done:





I also sewed up the last 3 purses that I stitched:



I just have to put these together on the frames and they're ready for a new home.

In other news, my Lucy has a Bladder stone.  Thank goodness my vet is only 10 minutes away!  I was there 3 times last week and 3 times this week.  Anyway, Lucy is 16 and has Kidney Disease so there's no option but surgery.  I'm not thrilled with the idea of surgery at her age but we don't have a choice.  We have to have it removed or it will continue to grow and I'm sure I don't have to explain the outcome to that.

Bleu is doing very well.  He has adjusted quite well to being here and finally, Cotton is accepting him.  Wrigley and Lucy were fine with Bleu right away but Cotton was rather upset.  I'll post some new photos of them soon.

Before I head out to stitch, does anyone have anything else for the 2015 Spring issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine?  Any eye candy photos to share?  Or Ads to place?  I just want to be sure that I have everything and that I give everyone the opportunity to share their projects and place their ads.  Please let me know asap!  Just drop me an email.

I got a new computer this year with Windows 7 and I love it. You are going to find big differences in your new operating system...so be sure to ask that tech a ton of questions. Take notes.

You have been stitching up a storm. I'm going to participate in the next CQJP and I am finding your resource list very helpful in gathering supplies.

Best wishes for your kittie's recovery from the surgery.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
