OK -- something is wrong! I have had no issues with my internet connection for a long time. I did two presentations yesterday, and there was no issue. But when I went to open up the computer last night to do the third one of the day, things just didn't work! I managed to get the call open, but not until I moved the laptop to the office and even then. I had to abandon the call! That's the FIRST time that's happened.
I'm not sure what the problem is. It still doesn't seem 100% right this morning - it's terribly slow. Now I know that DH has had some issues, and I wonder if he did something? Anyway -- I'll reboot the modem later and see if that helps. Yes, I'm regularly rebooting my laptop and computer to clear the memory, so I know it's not that.
Oh well -- I've had pretty good success up to now, so I can't complain. Let's just hope that it'll be OK for the next session.
Gosh -- it's so slow - it won't let me upload pictures. OK -- let's go make breakfast and see if I can then upload.
OK -- here we go -- we've got pictures. Yesterday, I mentioned The Big Shirt by Cindy Taylor Oates. Well, it didn't take any subconscious thoughts to find it. I knew that it was in the tub of garment or garment-making things that need to be finished. The tub sits under the long arm.

- I buy ONLY what I need to finish a project. I don't care how deep the sale is or how pretty the fabric is. If I can't use it for a project in the next month, I won't buy it. And for the most part, I've done that the last five years or so.
- I have my lists of UFOs, and I'm working on them. I'll provide a better update before the end of the year, but I'm digging out some of those HUGE UFOs and working on them. The lists help because it's way easier to work on current stuff and forget these long-ago projects. The UFO Club is also helping and if anyone wants to join the UFO group for next year, send me an e-mail. I'm not sure what the count is at the moment, but I'll be starting a second group. And the maximum I'll take is 20! firstname.lastname@example.org
- When I start a new project, I start with the intention of completing it. There is no abandoning a project. And so far, I've done very well with that. My ongoing projects for 2021 are almost finished, and that's an incredible feeling. My goal is to get them done by the end of this year. And I don't think there is any other project that I started this year that isn't finished or nearly finished. For me? That's HUGE.
