Irish Chain



I have finished piecing my Irish Chain. It was hard to decide on the borders but thought it needed two of them to bring it to a size I liked. It is now about a twin bed size. I think I might hand quilt this one so I can do something quite fancy in the white squares. I like to have a quilt on my big quilting frame and I just took the Double Wedding Ring off.



I had Free working on my computer yesterday. In the photo Robin has the screw driver but in actual fact Free did most of the work. I just happened to snap the picture at the wrong time. He took out a lot of components that are no longer being used and tweaked it so that it is much faster. Sky and Free are total techies and know a ton about computers. They are thinking of starting a computer repair company and calling themselves Techno Sherpas. We call them Sherpas when they are lugging computers around to set them up in a different spot. They have done a lot of that since they have been staying here.
