More mom and less computer

This might be a duplicate post for some and if so, I apologize.  It wasn't showing up on the board so I am trying again.

First the bad news and then the good news.

The bad news is that I don't have a computer at home that is working right now.  I'm having somebody do a virus scan on it and see if that is what is preventing me from getting online.  Comcast is working ok but there is something that is preventing me from getting online after I click on the internet button, etc.  It will get figured out sooner or later.  In the meantime my computer time is limited to work computer and/or my phone which I refuse to do long postings from.  :)

The good news is that I am still loving my camera and showed it to mom this Sunday.  Of course that means more pictures of mom!  Here you go.



She is sporting one of her "bibs".  The bib itself came from the nursing home but around 3 years ago I bought one of those outdoor flag which had the cardinal and some holly on it.  A quick snip with the scissors and some needle and thread and that birthday (or Christmas) she had a fancy bib to wear.  It took her a year or two to even wear it because she didn't want to get it dirty.  She is now wearing it and I promised her I would hand wash it when it got dirty.  LOL.

This week is the International Quilt Show in the Chicago Area.  I am hoping to go and have started to write down a couple of things that I want to check out if I make it.  Just little things like wool for penny rugs or ornaments and aurifil thread.  I only one one spool of Aurifil and that is white.  Now that I know it works on my sewing machine I'd like to pick up another color.

On the good side is also the news that tomorrow is my last work day until June 26th.  Technically the 25th since I come back to work on the 26th.  If I don't have my computer back during vacation I know I'm going to be in the office at least one day to do some stuff.  

Well that's it for now.  Keep your fingers crossed that I get the computer back soon and everybody have a great day/night.
