Computer woes:-(

Sorry I have been absent for a few days. My computer died a painful death a few days ago and I have had to buy a new one ( painful for me !!). The original ended up with a fried motherboard . It was only two years old and when we called the company to ask about it, we leaned that that particular motherboard is no longer made. Go figure. Anyway, I have ended up with a huge new machine but as everything is not fully loaded just yet, I have no pretty pics to show you. Soon, I promise.

I AM finished with the coleus project, photo to follow and hope to start a new quilt, a biggish one , from one of my Photoshop creations. I HOPE it works. It will be VERY complicated to make but I am patient. I am trying to use this unedited pic that shows, if you can scroll in on it, my stitching and heavy quilting. It is right off the camera so it may be too big to use. If so, I shall remove it and edit it later and THEN repost it. Bear with me please. Anyway, good to be back in the land of the living. Hope you are all well.


  1. So sorry for you as it happened to me and I hadn't backed up my computer in ages so I lost a lot of data.....even my files on Family Treemaker:( I now have a nifty external drive to back up everything to and I make sure I do...frequently.

    Love the Coleus:) It turned out beautifully.

  2. So sorry to hear about your computer. Why don't they make things to last these days?
    Looking forward to seeing your next creation. This one turned out very nicely.

  3. Sadly, the pain doesn't end at the purchase of the new computer. There's the new programs, updates etc. to learn. We got our new one almost a year ago and I'm still floundering around.

  4. Yes, it is like Chris says, a new computer, oh wow, lots of work and new things. But giirls, learning is good for you. Your quilt is fabulous, Carolynn, I want to touch it again, of course with gloves.

  5. My computer crashed two weeks ago while I was visiting my family in Margate, Florida. I needed a reliable company to fix my PC and fix it fast. My cousin recommended Data Ninja services and they were, without a doubt, a life saver. Thanks to Data Ninja Services, my PC was fixed in no time and is running like new.
