Tats of Woe
This is all I can show you - one, sorry-looking, little, piece of tatting - a remnant of one of the exercises that got discarded, left on the floor and covered with cat hair. It had been lost for quite a few days.
That is the good news.
Just before I found the little critter, my computer lost all sound - right in the middle of a rip-roaring mystery that I have been listening to, as I break my elbow, toiling away at the grandbaby's 'mimi'.
Seven hours of grief ensued as I frantically tried to resore the sound. At last, the great support technicians at Sony were able to help me at about 11:30 p.m. last night and the laptop is up and running! Thank goodness! I felt as though I had lost another appendage!
But, alas, I have not finished the tale. As I was in the midst of trying to sort out the audio dilemma, I had lunch with my son. While showing him a photo on my camera's LCD, the toggle switch stopped working. The camera was suddenly disabled and the mechanisms frozen. Just like that!
Unfortunately, the expense was prohibitive to fix a super camera to which I have become very attached, over the past three years, but I have had to replace it with one that is adequate enough, but inferior in quality, for sure.
End of tale of woe. Hope you enjoy my meager offering today.
I am going now, to finish 'mimi'.
