Handmade Monday N0. 77
What a week and what an end to it, actually sat and watched the opening ceremony and loved every minute. Just hope other countries understood the history but very well done and seamless transitions, we should be proud as a nation.
Ocala Towers has had some trauma, on Wednesday a loud bang, lots of coughing and spluttering, all the plugs go out when the fuse trips. So thought better check if all DH alright, that is after flipping the fuse back on! Lee's old Mac (my cast off) finally gave up the ghost problem he has not been backing up, just so typical of a man and not for the want of telling, never listens to me now I have proof. He is now sharing my Mac, not going to happen for long as driving me mad, thumps the keyboard, whinges because he now has to resurrect everything. Good job I carried some over last December. Already back up to Apple direct but thought no better be local as well. Time Capsule ordered Thursday and arrived Friday, now for the set up, not as easy as would have thought got a call back logged and 2 hours later all up and working, overnight full back up done, now does hourly for any changes whooppee! My new best friend and so smart, not to mention when you enter the TC to check for data the background is moving stars in space. It's official I love Apple Macs.
Now onto makes, with all this heat, I know should not moan but when you need a shower every time you move not fun and my sewing room was positively stifling at times, so early morning stitching.
The Paris Collection continues:
Made in the usual natural linen, I love this fabric and so good to stitch on
One final laugh of the week took Shiloh to the vets to be weighed, simple? oh no he decides that he is not going on the scale, lays down and becomes super glued to the floor. The receptionist stood in front with a treat, he walks round to get it! Another vet parent stands behind to get him to go for a cuddle, very friendly our dog, no walks around. In the end Phillip (vet) and Lee have to man handle him onto the scales them realise that Lee has one foot on which gives a duff reading thought we had a 10 stone dog for one moment. Mission accomplished turns out he weighs 44.7kgs, now I am not into this modern weight palaver but 7st! eek! and not fully grown, think we got a polar bear not a golden retriever. He had a treat after and went to the hair dressers which he enjoyed as lots of fuss, has now been showered in advocate and worming tablets which were disguised in a piece of cheese, which had to be bought specially as Lee and I do not eat cheese, yukk!!
Work in progress, waiting for a tread delivery and nothing more to show but should be completed by next week, dragonflies and sea horses.
