Well if it isn't the most GOrGEoUS Sunday that I have seen in a looong time!

We've been having a bout of winter unlike what we normally have here in North Texas along the Red River and for me, it's been a very welcome change, I really loathe the heat here.

I managed to kill yet another sewing machine, hence the new profile pic, compliments of hubby lol!  Refunds are due soon and that means repairs and hopefully an additional, upgraded machine for me! I have a LOT of UFOs to complete and I am anxious to get to them as well as start new projects with gorgeous fabrics and patterns that I've found. Can you tell I am totally and completely besotted with quilting as well as seriously addicted?

No new horsey, yet but hopefully that will be resolved this year too, as well as some extended time away trying for the entire month of August, as it is just too hot to be here in Texas at that time.  But, if it doesn't work out then I'll do like every other respectable Texan, hybernate lol!

Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful Sunday, too.  

As always, *HUGS* and plenny Alohas!

Internet Connection Frustration

Being without internet since last Friday, I think it was, is just CRAZY frustrating!  We live out in the country, just on the edge of town, but apparently, the "town" we live in is a mixture of both above and below ground cabling, so, when it rains, we loose connection .. *rolling eyes*. Then, yesterday, the Technician is finally able to come out and fix our prob, he discovers 100s of errors in the lines we're connected to and patches us to a new connection, only leaving a "few" errors. *rolling eyes again*

These "few" errors leave me unable to connect to my beloved Missouri Star Quilt Company's website, in parts.  I can't get to the quilt shop (probably a good thing lol!) but I CAN connect to the daily deal (again, probably a good thing). I CAN connect to the blog, but I can NOT connect to the Forum/Community ... ARRGH!  I was having fun reconnecting with all of my friends from that board!  I remembered also why I quit going on the forum ... SERVER ISSUES! AAARRRGH! LOL!  Apparently, their server and mine do NOT like each other ... and "I" am the one (the customer) who gets to suffer the brunt of it all ... what a big bummer :/

So, if any of you are reading this and can, would you please let my friends on the Forum know what's happened to me and why I'm not there? LOL!

The wonders of technology.  It's like a drug, get you hooked then you can't do without and omg the withdrawals if you can't get any!   I feel like some junkie in a movie!

Ultimately, yes, we're switching back to cable internet coz this AT&T 768 crap is for the BIRDS!
