Scraps and a router

Hi friends!
Day before yesterday i needed more three inch squares so i spent the afternoon cutting them up.
Now it's full again.
I need to cut every weekend so i can empty some totes on the back porch.
When i got up yesterday i turned on my internet and it worked for a while and went off. I messed with things started and restarted it and it came on for a few minutes and went off again. My router was nearly 5 years old and the cheapest. So we  went  to walmart and got a new one. The last one you installed with a c.d.,not this one!
My computer is just a year old and i hadn't installed any thing on it so it took me a while to figure it out. Buy then i was so tired i didn't do anything else .
Amazing how tired you can be clicking on things for nearly two hours!
I had it on by 4 and i started after my hair apt. at 2 !
I stopped to load and unload the dryer and other things , so i wouldn't pull my hair out!
It would tell me to close it down and restart my computer and then i would lose the installer.
Oh well it's done for a few years maybe.
Have a great weekend
Quilt Happy

Like you the computer tends to puzzle and trouble me, half the time I do not know what I am doing on it! Good to know the internet is now running smoothly again, here the router comes from the company supplying the internet.
You now have plenty of 3" squares but no doubt they will soon be make into a quilt and you will be cutting more of them

Computer work always seems to take forever. said...

Good job getting your router up and running. Can't wait to see what you make with all those squares.

I know your pain with that PC. Seems like we have to go through a learning curve all the time. Look forward to seeing those squares come together. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone.
