Laptop problems

I'm having big problems with my laptop today.  It started to do wierd things this afternoon and then the keypad stopped working.  I've spent ages fiddling about with it but it's still not working.  I've only had it a couple of months so it looks like it might have to go back.  I just hope it's not a virus. This evening I'm on my old laptop, which is so slow it's taken me 30 minutes to get it up and running and onto my blog!  No photos today because it'll take me all night to set that up.

I've been thinking some more about the patchwork quilt.  It's important to me that it's made from re-purposed fabric and that I don't buy new if possible.  I also wanted to have something of my mum in there, so intended to ask her for a discarded item of clothing.  But then I thought, wouldn't it be lovely to have fabric in there from all my family and friends.  That would make it even more special.  A quilt of memories I suppose. I've also had a kind offer of fabric from a fellow blogger, coincidentally also called Denise.  And the feed sacks?  I may treat myself and buy one, or a piece of one.  It's cheap enough for a small piece, and would give me a lot of pleasure.

I think I'll try the method where you cut out paper shapes and tack your fabric round them as that sounds like it'll be easier to achieve accuracy.  Boring job,cutting out the paper shapes I suppose, but I could always do them when I'm covering reception at work  and it's quiet :-)  That'll be every evening then!

On a totally different note,  Dr Who has really rocked my world tonight.  Fantastic episode, and the suprise ending - never saw that coming!  Looking forward to the rest of the series in the autumn.  I don't watch much telly, but but I love my sci-fi.
