Back to Blogging

Finally I got things working again. They kept my computer 2 weeks and fixed it in like 2 hours. I think they forgot about it even though I was calling them. It was an electrical part so all my data was saved. Now I have my program to automatically back up my data and my external hard drive to put it on. It was funny when I picked it up. He put it in my front seat and seat belted it in. I was going to take a pic of it like that but I got it out and plugged it in and forgot. I felt like I needed an additional carseat to bring it home from the hospital.
Now back to quilting. I have been working on my christmas quilt. A bargello heart, one of my favorite patterns. Our guild party is tuesday. I hate hand stitching my binding down so I waited till the last minute. I challenged everyone to make a christmas quilt last year, have it finished , and bring it this year for show and tell. I think I might get a few bad looks if I did not have mine done! I also made these really cute pin cushions for prizes. I will post them tomorrow.

I Hope To Return Soon

It is so weird not to have a computer. It crashed, I cried, and I might loose all of my pictures and data. It is nobodys fault but my own. I am a bad backer upper. I just feel like my computer will always work. The whole attitude that it will never happen to me. I was working on putting pics on a digital frame for my mom. Now she is not getting the frame because I want the pics on it especially if I loose all mine. She said she understood, so I sent her a blank frame and told het I will send her pics if mine get saved.
I am getting alot finished now that I am not distracted by my computer. I got 5 quilts quilted. 2 pear pincushions made and they are huge, 7 inches tall. I am wrapping up my x-mas quilts for the guild party.
I went to Ky. this past weekend to see my neice and nephew. I got some great pics of them to put on the frame. We bought my granny some fabric with a pattern book for x-mas. I am sending her a pincushion also. You can't beat 30% off fabric.
Hopefully things will work out with my computer. I hope to hear from them today. As soon as I get it back I will be back to blogging and backing up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Daily Walk

These were some of the pics I took on Nancy's farm when I went for my daily walk at lunch. We get 2 hours for lunch but most of us only took 30 minutes and went straight back to work. I walked to the front of her property everyday. Since she has most of her classes in the spring and fall there are definitely plenty of things to photograph.
