Catching Up From MIA

Computer problems and life just got too chaotic to keep my focus on blogging but I really missed hearing from my blogger friends.  I have been popping in to read your adventures and accomplishments however, but not taking time to leave many messages.  Sorry for that.  This post is a test to see if Blogger will let me continue my blog as it was AND that the computer will stay functioning more than a few days.

It has been a long while since last posting, so I don't know where to begin.  I'm still having computer problems with my laptop, which is very disheartening given the cost of the Surface 3; and I'm disgusted with it's lack of performance.  I would not recommend this computer although listening to the salesman, they make it sound fabulous being it can be used as a tablet and has full computer functionality in such a small portable package. I was not so impressed with mine.  Size and portability is wonderful, but what good is that if it fails to charge and will not turn on.  The camera doesn't work right and the desktop screen changes so often I thought there was a devil inside trying to drive me crazy. It almost worked. It was so frustrating I gave up.  Screaming didn't even help!

Where did Spring and Summer go?   I know it was just a few weeks ago, right?
When I last posted it was cold and winter-like and today it is cold and rainy -- the same weather again.  Maybe I imagined that it's been a very long time between posts and just fell asleep and dreamed it all.

I am still keeping very busy with sewing projects and making quilts to donate to Quilts of Valor, kid's charities and special family occasions.   This Spring and Summer I put out a medium size vegetable garden and grew tomatoes, green peppers, kale, cucumbers, zucchini, beets, watermelon and cantaloupes.  Had success with everything except the cantaloupes.  They didn't make it at all, but the watermelons outdid themselves.

A post without pictures is not a good test.  So here is a UFO that is waiting to be finished.

Keeping fingers crossed this all works.
