Stitching time and Computer Crash

Well, unfortunately this will be a photoless post. My computer crashed yesterdy - I need a new power jack. It is going in the shop tomorrow and the gentleman reassures me it will be back in a couple of days. So, no photos to post. I am using my son's laptop and he is in Cuba.I can't figure out how to import and grab photos from his. I will have to post photos when I get my laptop back.
I have had lots of stitching time since we arrived home. I spent all afternoon Sunday stitching with Beatrice and Adriana. We did lots of talking, showed off all our WIP's and our finished projects. I took some photos of the three of us but-----
The next afternoon I stitched with Anne from Knowledge and Needles and Beatrice. Again, lots of conversation and oohing and aahing.
Tuesday night, I stitched with some of the ladies from our Thursday stitching. Judie (of the cows) hosted the evening and it was wonderful. The time flew much too fast. Again, I got to see all their beautiful work. I miss them all so much.
Last night I finished Cathy B.'s Neighborhood RR and it is now in the mail - took photos but--------- I think you get the picture (pardon the pun) LOL
We spent some quality time with our granddaughter and her parents. She is growing into such a young lady. It is wonderful and sad. I visited with my parents and my middle sister too. Mom, sis and I even managed to do lunch.
We are now with the grandsons. We took our DS and his wife to the airport at 3 a.m. and they are on a beach in Veradero with a drink in hand basking in the sun. We took both grandsons to daycare this morning and DH has gone to pick them up. We figured with the cleaning lady coming this morning and us having them all weekend it was best not to disrupt their routine today. In a short while, DH will be home and chaos will reign until their bedtime at 7:30 p.m. Wish me luck.

Glad to hear you are having so much fun catching up with your stitching friends. I'll bet they missed you too! I look forward to seeing all your pics when you have your laptop back.
Sounds like you'll have your hands full with your grandsons. Enjoy!

It was great to see you and get caught up. Your Crystal Tree is beautiful. Photos don't do it justice. Have a great time with "the boys" and I hope they don't run you ragged. lol

What fun to have actual real live stitching friends near enough to get together and stitch with. I am turning green over here. My friends think my stitching is "quaint". And I hope you get your computer problems resolved soon. I know that can be frustrating.
