February Smalls Finish

Wow, it has been a crazy month in my household.  It started by us losing our main computer, one Friday night it just died, motherboard gone, boo hoo!!  My hubby was able to save some of the files stored on our hard drive -- no we did not back up to the cloud or anything else for that matter.  It took us two weeks to decide on a replacement.  We had one in mind from Best Buy, it was not in stock, in store or on-line. So we walked out of there with two new laptops for the kids, not sure how that happened.  Finally, hubby was able to custom order the machine he wanted from HP.  So now I have a lovely HP Envy on my computer table with Windows 7, which is why we went with HP.  Now if I can get Microsoft to stop sending the pop-ups to upgrade to Windows 10, life would be perfect.  My kids have Windows 10 on their laptops, as for me I am sticking with 7.  I digress!!

It is time for the monthly Small check in hosted by Heather, owner of the Stitching Lotus blog.  To learn see more small check it out here.  I have two smalls to share this month both were started in early 2015 as part of the SoCal Debbie CJC Challenge.  Now I am happy to cross them off my brain's "To Be Finished" list.
