Wednesday our bedroom TV had a rolling picture with little or no color. Jack's computer is in the bedroom and he likes to have the TV on while he is at the computer so it was a really "Big Deal" that it wasn't working. The living room TV was OK but when Jack called the cable company they said it could be a weak signal as the bedroom TV is digital and the other is not and they receive 2 separate signals. They were going to send us a stronger signal, it sounds fishy to me but what do I know about anything. If they did, it didn't help. We didn't have time to go out and shop because we had to meet our great-grandsons school bus. Jack did a lot of research on line and went out Friday and picked up a new flat screen TV with more bells and whistles than the old one. All set up and working fine, everyone is happy.
Last Saturday I couldn't find my cell phone. I thought I had picked it up and we left home and went back for it when I didn't have it and I couldn't find it. I have looked and looked all week, in every purse and inside and under everything, in all the pockets in what I was wearing. Today I got a new phone and Jack spent more tan 2 very frustrating hours getting my number transferred and all of my 3000 minutes. It still bothered me that I couldn't find it as I knew I had it at home and didn't take it anywhere. I looked one more time, this time in the pocket of what I didn't wear last Saturday. Of course I found it, I had changed what I was wearing for something warmer after I had put the phone in my pocket. I would worry about dementia but honestly I have been this way all of my life. I just do things without paying attention to what I am doing and I can't remember where I put something because it didn't register in the first place.
I would tell you about the several frustrating days I have had trying to do something in Picasa but I will bore you with that another time.
I did get my triangle blocks finished and the pairs that have the matching point together and I am ready for the next step after I make some fabric decisions. This became a little tedious but it was not really frustrating.
I am still not ready to sew the borders on this Quilt Camp collaborative quilt. I bought the black fabric on the right and thought a narrow Kona bone border would work between the black multicolor border and the body of the quilt. Now I think the crayon fabric makes it too juvenile. We want it to have a wider appeal as it is going to go in an auction. Then I bought the other fabric on the left. I don't think I like it. The background color is more a deep coral than either red or orange.I really wanted multicolor spots on black and I have looked several places and all of a sudden no one has any. I have seen some on line but after two mistakes I am not sure I want to order without seeing it and feeling it.
This is frustrating and is likely to result in having to buy
