I’m not yet ready to declare that my sewing mojo is back but I woke up this morning wanting to be in the sewing room.
It’s been so long since I’ve been in here, I sat and stared at EQ, wondering how on earth to get back to the file I’d been working on. But, first I had to overcome a major obstacle. It’s a good thing Vince is at work because I was NOT happy with him when I realized that my computer had been upgraded to Windows 10. Oh, man . . I am too old for this. I don’t know why this old desktop couldn’t have been left alone but no .. not with Mr. Upgrade EVERY Computer In The House! Finally figured out how to get around a bit only to find that neither my email or facebook passwords were saved and I don’t have a clue what they are and to reset them, I have to get a text, which doesn’t happen in the sewing room. Maybe I’ll get more done without email and FB to distract me. Or, maybe I’ll walk back to the house and get the texts and reset the passwords.
Finally made enough progress with EQ to get back to my file but I needed to print more paper pieces. That’s when I learned that the default printer was the Dymo label maker so I have 500 labels (not really .. but about 15) printed with pieces of EQ blocks on them. Then I discovered that the printer in the sewing room wasn’t even installed on this computer. That is so far above my knowledge level but I somehow managed to get it done, papers printed and then I sat back and was thinking how blessed I am to be able to sit in my sewing room and sew, or sit in the living room and knit, spin, rug hook. Yes, my life is close to perfect . . til I looked up and saw this on the wall right in front of me.
Yes, my sweet boy in the picture made me smile but the spider made me say a bad word!
Honestly, it’s been over 2 hours that I’ve been in the sewing room messing with “stuff” and haven’t made the first stitch but the day is young and I’m not a quitter! 🙂 One more Dr. Pepper and I should be good to go!
This is where I started today . . and I’ll share an “after” picture if I manage to get anything done.
