KABOOOM! THERE GOES MY COMPUTER

Our home computer blew another hard-drive on Tuesday so I haven't been able to keep in touch with all you fine ladies. I apologize.The computer is quite messed up. Apparently we keep blowing out hard-drives so the service guys are running diagnostics on it and it looks like a motherboard problem...oh joy. So either they'll fix it and we'll have it back my the end of the week or we get a new CPU. We are trusting in our Lord that they are able to fix it because a new computer is really not in the budget. Prayer would be mightily accepted!

I do have quite a lot of tatting news for you though! ...onto a happier note...

  • I bought more 'Lizbeth threads from Handy Hands and I just love them! I got the color called 'Jelly Bean' which is a variegated of lime green, orange, magenta, and a light purple. SOooo pretty! I also bought the 'Mocha' brown and it's like chocolate on a thread! There is a slight shimmer to it that makes it so lovely. I have a hankie that is brown and white that I plan to edge and I'm also working a pair of earrings using it and I can't wait to show them to you all!
  • Also coming up in August is our Boone County Fair and guess who is showing this year? Yup, yours truely. I tatted up Yarnplayer's "Arches" doily in Lizbeth black and will be showing that in the fair this year along with my hankie that I edged. I'll keep you updated on that but for all of those in northern Illinois stop by! The fair starts on August 11th.
Pictures of all my projects will come later! Blessings to you all!

I bought that mocha at the weekend. It is a really pretty brown. I also saw the Jelly Bean at Hobby Lobby on Monday and was tempted but decided to wait for a sale or something.

What a funny coincidence. I don't know if you've ever been by my blog but I finally posted some picts on the 18th & it included some brown edging that I started for a brown & white hankie. I've had to restart because that edging that I made is too large for a hanky. But it will look good on a canvas tote.

Hope they're able to get the computer fixed! :)
