Connection woes...

I've felt lost since last Wednesday afternoon... my Internet connection has been giving me fits! The tech came out to check out the problem today, and of course I wasn't home. The problem... our tree on the south side of the driveway has grown enough that it blocks the signal from the tower... sometimes. If I had been home, I would have had them move the dish right away. Instead, the tech tweaked it as much as he could and suggested moving the dish to the top of the shed. Anyway, since my connection would sometimes fizzle out 30 seconds into my session, I haven't been able to keep up very well!

I've been working on my T.A.T. apprentice level with Bonnie. No pictures to post, but I'm learning a lot from this program! I finally finished undoing my major mistake in Cornelia, so I can get back to tatting that little beauty! Since I have so many works in progress, I've decided to take my tatted crosses with me when I visit Mom in early August... I can tat while she weaves!

My daughter Andrea told me what goodies she'd like for the new baby (due in Sept.), so I've been working on baby quilts, flannel blankets, and hats. I sewed up two little sun dresses for Eva and Lily... Disney princess sun dresses, of course! Eva loves Sleeping Beauty, and Lily loves Cinderella... excuse me, Cinderelly! I guess I'd better think of something for Aidan... I don't want him to feel left out!

Now, it's time to catch up on reading blogs! I've missed reading about everything everyone's making! I'll try to do something picture-worthy soon!


  1. I know how you feel Diane. If I miss even one day on the computer I feel SOOO behind. Isn't it wonderful how much our online community has grown?
    It sounds like you are keeping yourself very busy this summer.

    Oh...and I am so excited that you and Bonnie are doing the T.A.T program! BRAVO!

  2. How attached are you to that tree? :) Wireless is great when it works!

  3. Oooo, you 'net junkie, you! Join the crowd! When it doesn't work it's surprising how lost one feels without the connection to the community.

  4. I know how you feel when you're without an Internet connection. I recently got back from visiting my parents, and they only have (gasp!) dial-up. Which can't be used during the day 'cause someone important may call. I haven't considered doing the T.A.T. program. I hope pictures will be coming.

  5. Uh oh, I signed up for the the TAT Program, I think, in 2004, and I never complete it :( I completed some projects but I think I was somehow stuck in 2 others, and ...

  6. Oh, that is awful that you've been having problems with the computer connection. What a major bummer. I hope it's all taken care of soon.
    Good luck with the T.A.T. program. That sounds really cool!
    I think your grandkids will really appreciate your fun homemade gifts for them.

  7. Hi again,
    I have a little gift for you on my blog. Please come and see. :)

  8. I am absolutel lost without my computer! What did we do before.......? You are so busy. I don't know how you get all done. Good luck on the T.A.t. program!

  9. It is good to have you back. It is so weird not being able to get online, lol.
    Those grandchildren are so lucky having someone to make them all those pretty things.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
