    Quilt Addict, love love love your selection, to me there is no blah, but maybe because those tend to be my colors. Here is what I came up with, took me all morning to figure it out and then as usual I am not sure. But I'll have fun with it either way.

    GEEZ! You mean I have to work on stuff I already started? Well, then again, I could start something else new so I would have my sewing room in the constant state of disrepair it's used to being in. That way when the table runner instructions come through I would have even more! Yah - that's the ticket!

    Oh Coopah, fresh strawberries already. Maybe I should move to Florida, except for the pythons, sinkholes and sharks. Just kidding.

    Haylillan, ditto, for sure.
    Sunliten, ditto, amen!

    Judy, Fingers are crossed for you. No worries, we'll be in the club car.

    purtercat - like all your colors - but it is best to stear away from plaids when doing this.

    Island - for some reason your fabrics didn't open on my laptop

    That's for sure, Sunlite!!! My old mechanical Kenmore was still running great after 40 years when I gave it to my friend's grandaughter!

    white pine - thanks. I've got mine crossed as well as my toes, too.

    Anngel -- lookin' good!!!

    I am using a friends computer that is windows 8 and I am not pleased with it. Hard to get around.

And I had bad dreams all last night that I wouldn't be able to figure out how to use Windows 8 - it is so horribly different from any earlier Windows! Will post an update later, let's say look for a note from me about 11:00. Have a great Saturday.

    islandwiz. very pretty, and will work well.

    Island's busy print will work well because the scale is small and all colors will look good.

    Just got the call from Best Buy, on my way to pick up the beast, hopefully will post clue 2 in a couple house.

    Nope, not too late - here, let me get the door for you. Come on back to the club car and join me for a coffee. Where are you from?

    Oh, I'm a little glad there is a delay in posting Clue 2. I've been working on mystery quilt our quilt guild is doing. Had to solve a problem I was having with the instructions, but all is well now, and I have two more blocks to assemble.

    For those of you struggling with Win 8, all I can say is "Why did you downgrade?". According to DH, Win 8 is a dog.

    If you must use it, Google on "Classic Shell" and you'll find a free app you can use to get your desktop back as well as the Start menu.

    Really?! LOL that is the best news I've heard all day. I'm using Windows 8, but I sure miss my XP.

    Don't worry Judy, we'll be here stuffing our faces in the club car and I'll bring along Stitchopoly for some gaming!


    Edited to add: I just installed Classic Shell to get my Start Menu back. It was pretty easy and quick, thanks so much again for that tip!!

    Oh, good! You are in luck Paulswalia! I do drink Coffee! I'm from Danville, 15 miles west of Burlington in Southeast Iowa. I will be watching for the 2nd clue. I don't have a Digital Camera to post a Picture of my Fabric, but I choose Fall Batiks that are, Orange, Orange with Pumpkins. and Purples.

    Problems!!!!!

    Ok, I hate to do this but ...
    Using my old laptop for this because I have everything on the new puter hooked up, cannot connect to the internet, my documents did not get transfered onto the new computer, nor did any of my pictures. And naturally, I cannot get help over the phone -- the computer voice at the Geek Squad says they cannot find my account - the one I already paid for!

    So I think that I am just going to have to put this off for a week. I'm sorry, but give me a chance to stop crying and figure this thing out. So please check back on March16th -- hopefully by then I will have my problems solved.

    I can't do the caffiene so I'm bringing some herbal teas to the club car to relax while waiting for the next clue. Going out to get some sushi soon anyone want me to bring some back?

    Until I got to the part about Iowa I thought "Danville.....Burlington......we are only a half hour from each!" DUH - in Vermont, that is!

    Yes please, I have a nice red wine that will go well with it. Bummer we have to wait a week, but understand. I have started to use the USB sticks to store much of my docs. That way when the computer crashes I will still have my files. As long as I can find the little things. They seem to get smaller and smaller each year. My last ones are 1.5 by .5 inches, too easy to loose. The desk top is about 9 years old, just waiting for it to leave me high and dry, my laptop is 5 years old I think I am running on borrowed time.

    No problem, Judy. It always happens this way. My computer crashed the day before we were leaving on vacation and I'd planned on doing some work on it. Just come on down to the club car for several glasses of wine and hit it again tomorrow. Like someone said earlier, it's not like most of us don't have anything else to do. We definitely don't want you to stress over this because we're having too much fun and it wouldn't be fair.

    And I thought the Geek Squad were supposed to be so good! Judy, did you have a virus protector, our cable folks provide us with Norton. Btw, that Classic Plus program works for getting a Start Menu back!

    Good luck and no crying, just take some deep breaths, look outside at the beauty and let it go for a day.

    I have listened all over the qb and there are tons of people having issues with the new window 8. My mil just wrote to say she cant get her files transferred is having all sorts and it rang like all the complaints I am hearing. I lost EVERYTHING last year all my photos my ..everything important. gone. I asked everyone did you save anything I sent you and got about 5 percent sent to me. I would love to afford to upload to another server my important things. this way its in cyber safe space. so sorry and will patiently await it working again. hey hows about if you cant post pics you can post.. cutting?? you can borrow my computer no trouble at all!! drag Judy total drag for you. we will be here waiting.

    Relax, Judy, we will be waiting for you when you are ready. It's a good thing there are no calories in cyper food or we'd all be getting rounder and rounder with all this yummy food.

    How 'bout some spicy chili made with prime rib and topped with sour cream and avocado?

    I am having trouble getting my picture to download. Here are my fabric choices. What do you think Judy. Good luck with the computer. I helped a neighbor set up a new laptop and I didn't care for windows 8 at all. Your backup files are probably on a separate drive. Anyway I hope so.

    Looks like it worked. I couldn't resize the photo in windows 7 so I used a free program called Irfanview, opened the file and resized it. I hope this helps someone else.
