Double Rainbow

This was the view from our deck on (I think) Easter Sunday.  
Double rainbows.
Easter weekend started very wet and windy with the remains of cyclone Ida.  We battened down the hatches and sat it out but sympathy to those who got wetter than they would have liked.
Since then life has been busy with visitors and more vistors and some visiting and so it goes.

There has been some weaving but mostly finishing off of work.
Four blankets have been delivered to Pauanesia 
and two more are having their fringes tasseled. 

In a post back in April I mentioned making a list of projects waiting for their debut.
Well the list grew to 34 projects and is now down to 24.  
I'm working through them and its great to cross things off.
At this stage some are nearly done but no cheating allowed.

I was reluctant to write a post as I'm back to working on my slooooow girty.  Yes the hand-me-down computer from Peter died.  The fan stopped, over heating the power supply and when Pete tried to jemmy it up, temporarily, sparks flew.  (His career was in electronics.)
We are waiting for a cheap power supply purchased from Trade Me (the NZ equivalent of Ebay) just to see what's what.  Is there more damage to the computer than we know?  Is it worth fixing or is a new one called for?
Thank goodness I'd finished the last blanket on the loom.

Now I'm going to turn girty off to start up the dobby loom.  I just know its going to take 20 minutes to get going again.
And if I get the "unresponsive" message I just might take it up on the "kill me" option!
