Yep, it’s still raining, over 240mls in just less than a week! What’s a girl to do? Housework? No. Baking? No. Ironing? Not likely. So it seemed like the only thing left to do was to start a new quilt, I mean it’s not as if I have any UFO’s to finish – yeah right! Besides I had this lonely layer cake just begging to be used, it caught my eye and my imagination every time I looked at it, so I gave in. So far the result today is twenty five 9” ‘churn dash’ blocks. Somewhere on the net recently I saw this block and decided to make sure that I made it soon, so I’ve started, it's a doddle of a block.
Today was the shops UFO day and we were blessed. Four fantastic ladies came along, each one working on something different, what a great day so motivating and so much fun, time just flew. Meanwhile outside the rain came down, how much rain can fall from our sky?
Once our ladies had left I realised that it had been sometime since I had updated my blog, so with coffee in hand and camera at the ready I got settled down for some serious blogging – aha- unable to log in. Time to phone the help desk. After an hour of talking with a chap that I struggled to understand from the help lfinally he politely put me on to the next level,of help. If I hadn't been so frustrated about the whole thing I would have thought that I had been promoted, but no, another man, another long explanation of what is not happening. So here I was, one man on the phone, type this, unplug that, switch the other, press connect – ugh, just too much. I really thought that I had messed the whole thing up and both of these ‘delightful’ men had allowed me to do that, another promotion, up another level, yeah! Someone with sense (and a man at that!), “no it’s not you Miche’le, it’s a fault with the server”. Mmmmmmm, after messing around with men for over an hour I discovered that this technophobe was not doing the wrong thing – why couldn’t they say that to begin with? I mean I’m a woman, I can handle their apologies, but did I get one? Not a chance, and it’s still raining!
Keep dry, keep happy Summer
