Here is a close up of "odd" fabrics that add to the quilt's personality. My goal is to do just one row of blocks a day - sometimes when pushing myself, it gets overwhelming and I lose enthusiasm.
ISP issuesOh great, I lost computer/phone power again - we have been struggling with our ISP over 2 months. Today, phones/Internet has been ON and OFF at least 8-10 times. However, finally the TVs work OK, after numerous calls, techs, and even re-wiring all the cables, yet the problem continued - bad or no TV reception. They even replaced the buried cable, the "hub" on the pole in the alley, resulting in no improvements for TV. Finally, I called another person, who "goosed" power outlet somewhere and that seems to solve the TV issues -- I am saying that today, tomorrow might be different. The TV issues were the original problem. However, we realize now, that the phones are out and we've noticed we're not receiving any calls - unlike normal traffic. The Internet connection is also out much of the time, which I attributed (wrongly) to an old computer. We realize now that it is the ISP and connections, not us. We've been keeping a log for 2 weeks of issues and sporadic problems - I want to holler to someone, 'THAT'S NOT MY JOB!" to keep these logs!!!. Yet another tech (is this 5 or 6 or 7?) comes Monday -- he said he'd call first - I had to remind him THE DANGED PHONES WON'T WORK - THAT'S WHY YOU ARE COMING!!!! When I started this post, I HAD a connection. 5 minutes later, NADA. If he does not get me fixed Monday, I am going to mention the name of the company - this is getting ridiculous.
(OK, I feel a little less frustrated!)
Yep, power is back on!
