Tag Archives: Windows 10

Hello September :)

Hello my bloggy friends and…

 It is hard to believe life has been so fast forward for me that I haven’t shared with you since MID AUGUST!!!!

Hot and humid here… how is your weather???

As we welcome September 2015 into our lives… I am still stitching on the same dress on the memory quilt I was in my last post.. stitching is getting done… just not at a fast pace.. lol!

I have now not only updated my computer to Windows 10 .. but a new computer I got for my dd for her final 2 years of high school and into college (will she do that?? lol) .  I updated it to Windows 10 as well.  Windows 10 is So EASY to navigate… the negative to Windows 10 is if you have anything pirated on your computer… it does remove that stuff… I don’t so all is good for me 🙂

The BIG SURPRISE was a gift to me from my honey!

I got a new computer too!!!!

It came with Windows 8.1 but I quickly and easily (after 3 restarts of the computer) got Windows 10 on it as well.. and transferred all my pics and docs to it as well!!!  For now we are keeping that old computer as it does still work… just VERY slow at it these days! lol

I will say of all the computers I have owned DELL has BY FAR the best customer support available 24/7 but on the first call I was assigned to a team there and they have called me to check my status and answered emails and voicemails promptly.

Are you in the market for a new computer ???  Check out Dell and this one was a factory refurbished one we got for half off retail but with all the expertise of help that a new one comes with and it flies on the internet and processing multiple pages too!  Thanks for offering top quality products dell and very affordable too!

Hope September brings you pleasant weather and calmness before the frenzy that seems to ensue for everyone as Christmas approaches…

Until my next post…(hopefully not making you all wait 2 weeks or more this time! lol)


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…
