Some catch up and some finishes

Hi Everyone, having ones computer die can be very rough with commuications with family and friends. I now have a new desktop computer, fits just right into my messy desk area. Springtime has come to middle Georgia - the cherry blossom trees are just about done, but now the azaleas and dogwoods are showing their beauty, will try to get a photo up sometime soon. Below is my March TUSAL, I know it is a bit late, but no computer, not picture to post.

I did get my March ornament stitched. She is from the 1999 JCS magazine.
Below is my wash/dishcloth for the month.
I have been busy stitching and doing some beading as well as working in the garden.

Thought I had it down on how to down load my pictures from the camera and no it didn't work, had to have DH and DD come and help me figure out this new program.

I know this will get easier as time goes by, so bear with me.

Hope you all are doing well - I will be catching up once again with my blog reading.

Have a great rest of the week and a good weekend.

Thank you for stopping by --------------- Roberta

Today is the first day of the Cherry Blossom Festival

Well, I am slowly getting use to the new computer and was able to download pictures from my camera.

Since today is the first day of the Cherry Blossom Festival here in Macon, Georgia, I thought I would share part of what this is all about.

First, the newspaper is printed on "PINK" paper. Everything is "PINK" and everyone dresses in Pink and they serve Pink pancakes. It is truly a fun event and this year the weather has been so cooperative that the Cherry Blossoms are out and still busting out - will have more photos of trees tomorrow. I belong to the Ikebana of Middle Georgia group and we are invited every year to do arrangements in all of the rooms of this historic house - the Woodruff House.
Below are three photos of my designs which in located on the first floor sitting room.
The container above is a true Ikebana container.
The one below I found at TJMaxx and was hoping that chopsticks would fit in the holes - and yes they did, so it is truly a unique container.
The two designs above are sitting on the mantle and this design below is in the hearth.
Here is a photo of the whole look.

I will try to post some more photos of designs, but I need to ask permission of the other ladies who put designs in.

Thank you for visiting -- until later --- have a great weekend ----Roberta

No Computer, No Blogging, No Messages

Just a quick note, to say that not only am I waaayyy behind in blog reading, but in everything else that is 'computer'.

My faithful laptop has been acting up for the last several months and I am sad to say that it has seen its last days. So here I sit with a new 'desktop' but without all my goodies - pictures, worksheets, patterns, whatever. The computer doctor is trying to pull off my information from the laptop. So hopefully, I will be able to get this new 'puter organized. I am really concerned about my pictures, we'll see what happens.

So off I go to get more comfortable with my new friend. I will be back in blogland soon, but I need to catch up and read everyones blogs first.

Until later ---- Roberta
