Japanese Knot Bag

Success!!! My dear son has been trying to help me out here. He is home sick today (infected tooth). I still don't know how & why... but here are two photos of the Japanese Knot Bag. It is actually about nine inches across and the main bag part is seven inches long, excluding handles. The pattern came from the internet a few years ago. To knot the bag, you slip the large handle through the smaller handle. It is great for carrying small projects to work on.

Another photo of the Chan

Okay, so I was trying to upload two new photos of the Japanese Knot Bag I made out of an old kimono sleeve I was sent by a friend. The photos are in my picture section, but I just can't get them to upload!! An experiment...try another photo. Okay, no one has seen this photo of Shizuku-chan. Bingo, it works. The photos of the Knot Bag do not. I don't get it!! I am liking this laptop, but there is some new things to learn. Bear with me, I'll get it eventually, (I hope).

Computer problems, an update

I have posted a couple of times about the ongoing problems with the Vista computer and finally the inability to post pictures anymore. Over the weekend, the old Vista died. It got computer alzheimer's, and couldn't be convinced that it actually had a hard drive. I am still computer illiterate, but my son is computer savvy, and he did everything he could do to save it. I am now trying to learn to use his laptop computer. It is alot different from what I used before, but I might actually learn to like it! As a test here, I will attempt to post a picture of Sakurajima, an active volcano in southern Japan. My daughter lived about two miles from Sakurajima when she lived in Kagoshima, Japan. I think it is a beautiful sight. One of God's wonders of the world. Here goes.........

Picture Problems

I am sorry that I have not been updating my blog lately, but the truth is, I continue to have problems getting photos into this computer. My daughter, yesterday, worked on it for me, and it has helped a lot, but I still don't think that I can do the work myself. My old program used to be so easy, and I am very frustrated with this one. The above photo is of Shizuku-chan, and she is yawning. My daughter is very good at taking pictures. Earl Grey is getting to be quite troublesome. Although he is still a very sweet cat, he loves to "push the limits". Have a blessed day!
