Back up and running with Windows 10 :)

Well... I guess I needed a bit of respite from all things internet!!! lol

Since my last post I have uploaded Windows 10 to a new computer I got for my dd... and then to my 4 year old computer that was running on Windows 7 too!!

All went well on the new computer... but geek help was definitely needed on my 4 year old computer to get it to be convinced this was a GOOD thing :) lol

So what is important to share with you all about this conversion??  I LOVE the new Windows Edge platform except I have yet to figure out how to change the search engine from Bing... to Google again.. and MY BLOG would not post in Windows Edge... so I am using Google CHROME to post this ;)

In the meantime...during all this updating I have still been quilting!!!


This quilt... shown as a flimsy above... is such a joy to work on as each block or sashing is a new adventure!!!

I have finished the middle column... that is in my last post :)

So next I worked on the left side vertical pink sashing strip... adding Kaylie and Kimber's favorite ... butterflies to that area ...


 
I used a blue wash away marker and all came out after these photos... but I am using white YLI 40/3 thread for the handquilting and try as I might... the pattern doesn't show much on the loud prints until I wash it and get the texture popping!!!

Then I moved to the 4 blocks in the left hand column...

I finished this cute block with Piglet pajamas in it...
 And am now working on this little cotton dress!
And during all this computer changing over stuff... my honey has decided it is time to sell another featherweight he has serviced and sewn on..
This beautiful machine sews like a dream and is soooo quiet and yet so strong too!  If you are interested just PM me on facebook or check it out in one of our facebook sale ads.. we have 10 pictures of this beauty :)

Well, as good as it feels to blog again... and regain my bloggy voice... I am also mentally drained from figuring out how to do everything computer related again.. having a business from home that depends on the internet for sales and communication ... and keeping up with other things going on behind the scenes here at Casa Del Loro is exhausting to say the least!

So for now I will wish you a great week and try to take my own advice now to...

  2. I'm so glad that you figured out how to post your pictures! That memory quilt is going to be just too precious. Thanks to Vista and Windows 8, I've been reluctant to upgrade my computers' operating systems when the updates first come out ... I'd rather wait until they've been out for a while and that they've been able to roll out patches to fix the bugs, etc. But based on your recommendation, I'm looking forward to going to Windows 10.

  6. I recently upgraded to Windows 10 on my computers. My laptop was a breeze to do. My desk top ...not so much. It was in a never-ending loop that kept telling me to restart my computer. Both computers had Win 8. Found a solution on line.

    Your hand-quilting design is precious and perfect for this quilt. Washing it will make that design pop. Can't wait to see it.
