I'm all in a flap this morning. My computer is downstairs! I had to bring it down for a presentation - it's a long story. In short, my laptop is struggling with one version of the embroidery software, but that version works fine on the desktop. When I have a software presentation, I bring the desktop downstairs. I had one presentation yesterday, and I have one this morning. So it didn't seem worth it to take it upstairs.
I NEED to get that laptop working as this is just silly!!!
So have you ever been window shopping? Oh yes - we love to window shop. Checking out what's new, whether that be in clothes or furniture or accessories. WAIT A MINUTE -- I mean shopping FOR windows!
The windows in our house are rather dated, no longer energy efficient, and several of the mechanisms no longer close properly. We've put it off for several years, and well, it's time to do something about it.
Oh boy -- what type of material to choose? What option to include? Which company to go with? I've already spoken to one salesperson and have an appointment today with someone else. I also went to a window showroom yesterday. YES -- I got to have a lengthy chat with someone in PERSON. I almost couldn't contain myself!
I'm glad I checked it out because I thought some features would be awesome, only to find that I didn't like them in person.
I loved the idea of these sliders to open and close a casement window. However, after seeing how the window opened, I nixed that idea. Too bad - it was neat.

Don't forget that Quilt Canada starts tomorrow. The awards ceremony is TONIGHT at 7 PM EST. I'll get to watch most of it before I have to sign off to get to a presentation. You got to love Zoom - all it takes to get from one event to another is a couple of mouse clicks!
And in between events today, I need to get to the window store again and maybe the quilt store. It's going to be a crazy day. I do NOT want this to become a regular occurrence!
Have a super day!!!!!
