I didn't need Gordon,but----

Dear Friends,

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Gordon the computer guy, to come over. Gordon clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?"

He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that . in case I need to fix it again?"

The computer guy grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"

"No," I replied.

"Write it down," he said, " and I! think y ou'll figure it out."

So I wrote out .. I D 1 0 T

I used to like Gordon

Hope this gave you a chuckle or I just HAD to share!

Is Success mine?

Hopefully I can slip this pic through the back door to my Blog.It's been such a frustrating scenario as I can't work out "why" this particular pic dislikes my Blog so much.

Still frustrated!

There's no fear in me Sharlee---------I KNOW that this 'puter is smarter than me!
I snuck in this morning to try uploading that pic again;The result?
I'll try it to Flickr now and see if that works.........I'm NOT gonna let a heap of plastic,glass and diodes beat me!

Frustration rules supreme!

I have been trying(unsuccessfully I must add) for the last hour to upload one picture to this Blog!!One of the southerncrosscrazies (who is participating in a RR with me and four other ladies )kindly sent me a pic of the work she had done on MarianE's block.
I've tried uploading to both this and the other Blog (CQCrazy) but apparrently Picasa and Hello have decided to go on strike :-(
Maybe I'll try again ............tomorrow!
Sorry Maxine.

JanWs Fan ready to leave Moodlu!You can see that one two of the Fan blades,I've added some Sashiko quilting in the Nowake or Pampas Grass pattern.The lower patch I edged with Cretan stitch and added a Bonsai tree using the pattern of the fabric as a cliff--the foliage is punch-needled and the trunk is chain stitched with two strands(light & dark)DMC cotton.To add a splash of colour I added a small spray of SRE flowers.

My first VTB(very tiny block)measures 1.5by2 inches.Yet to be embellished.I find that working in such a small size with silk is a little difficult as the fabric is so slippery
