Something new on my blog

You may notice a new addition to my sidebar, yes that is Miss Roxy our 11 year old Yorkie. She keeps us smiling.

I had a busy week. On Tuesday I took my 80 something Mom to the Apple Store to get an IPad. It was fun watching the kids interact with her. She was so proud when she could use her fingers to close a page.

 At home I showed her a few things and after working with her a little bit she knew how to go to her email, read and send a message, how to open Facebook and how to use Safari. I also added a few Apps for her. A few more lessons and she'll be a pro.

On Wednesday I went to wool club, there wasn't much new happening there but it was nice to see everyone. I did learn that Quilters Paradise is undergoing a remodel and will be adding a wool room, that made me very happy.

I finished my punch needle project:

I found I really enjoy punch needle, it is so quick. I need to learn how to finish my projects, the back on this one turned out a little rough, good thing it's just for me.
Last week I told you we had dinner with our good friends and that I had forgotten to take pictures of R's projects. R was good enough to send me pictures of her spring table topper:

Isn't it cute?
Today I'm going to figure out how to finish my chicken mat so I can hang it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and don't forget to set your clock ahead one hour (at least here in the U.S.).
Til next time, Ronda and Miss Roxy

    1. Hi Vicki, Not too sure about Roxy being sweet but she is loveable, opinionated (she let's us know her opinion by her body language), stubborn, independent in other words she's a terrier.

  2. Oh my, your little Miss Roxy is just adorable.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Isn't it wonderful when the elderly can take in modern technology and actually use it. Congrats to your mom.

    1. Hi Terry, she had an OLD laptop that needed replaced and I thought an IPad would be much easier to teach her than the new windows operating system. She's going to love it when I show her she can text from her IPad. She is just too cool.
