What I've been up to while trying to figure out how to use windows 10....

As the title suggests I've been struggling to work out how to use windows 10....that's what happens when you leave your computer unattended for a few weeks ( insert very sad face here! ) I still haven't worked it out and I have now resorted to my little mini laptop and have had to transfer all info over so I can at least do a blog post with photo's as it's still on windows 7.....have I told you how much I HATE WINDOWS TEN!!! Sorry for yelling :( but I'm just a tad upset as windows 10 is absolute crap ( sorry for the language ) the format is hopeless and the design/image is harsh on the eyes and my blog keeps vibrating when I click onto it using windows 10 which makes it hard to stay on that computer long.....anyway enough of my rant lets get onto the fun stuff which is what I've been getting up to in my absence from blog land :)
 

I've been playing with more triangles....this time I'm trying for a blanket ,will show you more progress photo's later....

I made this gorgeous stitchery for a very special friends birthday ( waves to Ondrea ) and realized I hadn't blogged about it very remiss of me .....now to get on to making one for me as I have an extra hat button to use up......

I also made this for another gorgeous friend "Cheryl" I must say I loved how it turned out and sooo glad I decided to do all the satin stitch on her top as it just made it pop :)

I know I've already shown you a photo of this beautiful bag but I couldn't resist adding it again I'm soooo in love with it :)

I also made two baby blankets for twins as per the mum's request in purple, blue, grey and cream using the same pattern but just varying the pattern design to get two totally different looks but with the same colour way..... and I'm happy to say the mum-to-be was very happy with the end result :)


I also participated in a lovely swap and the only requirement was it had to be a softie and since I've had this bunny pattern begging to be made for a little while I decided to make her up.....but wait I forgot to show you her tutu......
 


AAhhhh there she is all done up in her fancy tutu ready for a night out on the town :)
Anyway I will really try not to leave it this long again before I blog again unless in it's wisdom window's 10 decides it's going to force itself onto this mini lap top as well MMm hope not as I've missed blogging and my blog :)

Wow! This post was so worth the wait with lots of gorgeous projects to see. I put a pic up of my pressie when I received it. It is so lovely. Loooove that rainbow bunny! So much crochet yumminess. I wonder why Windows 10 loaded itself? Strange. Hope you develop a better relationship soon hehehe. Miss your posts . Keep the crochet pics coming....my newest love.

Oh my! My son keeps telling me that I need to upgrade to 10 while it is still free. I've been pretty nervous to let it load. I think my system is 8. I've tried to read about the upgrade and I think some of the operating systems will eventually not work unless you upgrade! Computers - can't seem to live with them, and can't seem to live without them :-(

Oh Barb, what a nuisance it is to get used to new stuff that we hate! I totally hear you on that one.
Your crochet looks wonderful - you're so clever - the softie is gorgeous & I LOVE THAT BAG!
Don't wait too long to show your face around here again, lovely lady!
