Computer down

My computer has been at the shop for the last two weeks. I don't know why I thought it was a good idea to take it in just when holidays are happening. I should have whated until the beginning of the school year (it's a University shop). All I needed was a new keyboard and I've needed one for the last half a year or so.

In the computer are audiobooks I want to listen to and pictures I want to share and financial information which would be helpful to have (just so I know for sure I'm not forgetting anything).

There were photos of my mom's socks. I lost them! The socks that is. How can you loose handknit socks ment as a gift for your mom who is traveling across the ocean to see you? Apparently it's easy. I found them, don't worry. It was the typical case of putting something in a good, save place and then loosing them.

Oh, yeah. I also got a sewing machine. It was a $15 garage sale find. Brother LS-1412 if I remember correctly. I'm not familiar with Brother sewing machines (or any other than Pfaff, Singer or Toyota to tell you the truth) but this one is designed just about exactly the same as my mom's 1970s Toyota sewing machine. Which means I know how to work it. If anything it's smoother. Still haven't sewn anyting. I need some stuff first, some bobbins, fabric and thread. I have a little bit (my mom brought some I had in Iceland) but I think it's time for a trip to Joann's. I think that's the only sewing store in 50 mile radius and the closest one is 30 min. away. Well, there's always Walmart too. There are quilting stores too. There's one in Nelsonville (15 min north) and one in Pomeroy (? perhaps 20 min south), but that's not the same.

I often lose things in a safe place. Lucky you found them before she came, sometimes I find them after the event.

Congratulations on the new sewing machine! I have heard Brother ones are good. JoAnn fabrics and a quilt shop is all that is close to me as well, I think that is a common trend here.

If you have not gotten the Hempathy yarn to try, www.yarn.com has it on sale, I just got an email today about it.

Til hamingju með saumavélina. Ég keypti mér einmitt saumavél í sumar en er ekkert farin að nota hana að ráði.

Good find with the sewing machine. I hope to learn to use mine a little more.

thanks for stopping by my blog too and leaving the good project suggestions for scrap yarns. I hadn't thought about little felted embelishments beofre - good idea.

In his best work--and his tales of the great metropolis are his http://startso11.info/www.t.a.t.u.be.html best--he is unique.. Prue and I do not entertain much; our http://startso11.info/olskie.html means forbid it.. Prue had laid her work in her lap, and as Titbottom paused a moment, http://startso11.info/lz2+rpg.html and I turned towards her, I found her mild eyes fastened upon my face, and glistening with happy tears.. The dream exhibits my friend as behaving like a http://startso11.info/hotel+igloopol+d%C4%99bica.html general paralytic, and thus riots in absurdity.. The simplest way to approximate two dream thoughts, which have http://startso11.info/WWW.DZIENNIKARZE.INFO.html as yet nothing in common, consists in making such a change in the actual expression of one idea as will meet a slight responsive recasting in the form of the other idea.. No use doing that, http://startso11.info/www.tibia.uk.html replied Buller, still standing on his nautical legs; I don't see anybody, and I don't see any boat.. I did not http://startso11.info/sxe+injected.html recognize you at once.. Oh, no! Not http://startso11.info/www.tup-tup.pl.html at all, she reassured him.. Help him, Rossie, prompted http://startso11.info/sztukateria+ogrodowa.html Aunt Missouri, sharply.. These are some of the most conspicuous abnormal processes to which the thoughts which have previously been rationally formed are subjected in the http://startso11.info/www.pivlte.be.html course of the dream-work.. I'll have t' save one room fer th' http://startso11.info/rozk%C5%82ad+jazdy+tramwaju+na+%C5%9Bl%C4%85ski.html driver, an' that leaves four.. The reading of dreams consists in replacing the events of http://startso11.info/wojkowice.html the dream, so far as remembered, by other events.. A thousand pardons--for--er--having kept a lady waiting--er! But--er--congratulations of friends--and--er--courtesy due to them--er--interfered with--though perhaps only heightened--by procrastination--pleasure of--ha! And the Colonel completed his sentence with a gallant wave of his fat but white and well-kept http://storyah44.info/policja+ruch+drogowy+gda%C5%84sk.html hand.. Yo' betteh have some. http://startso11.info/szkolenia+spawalnicze.html. He forgot he was in a http://startso11.info/DUNIN+PIOTR.html boat; he only knew that for the first time in his life he was in a runaway.. To be sure, it is very far from my ideas and the principles expressed by me in neuropathology to regard the sexual life as a pudendum which http://startso11.info/EUROMAKS-NIERUCHOMO%C5%9ACI.html should be left unconsidered by the physician and the scientific investigator.. The dream http://startso11.info/WAELO.html never occupies itself with trifles.. I'm a-goin' t' charge 'em till they squeal, he declared to the timidly protesting Aunt Margaret, an' then I'm goin' t' charge 'em a least mite more, drat 'em! He retreated behind http://startso11.info/plockiszs.html the rough wooden counter that did duty as a desk, slammed open the flimsy, paper-bound cash book that served as a register, and planted his elbows uncompromisingly on either side of it.. That was Felix's real http://startso11.info/wyroby+posrebrzane+aukcja.html anxiety--If his health holds out.. When he made his entry Major Talbot gave an audible sniff, glared at him, http://startso11.info/kosze+do+filtr%C3%B3w.html and seemed to freeze solid...
