I'm Still Here

Just wanted to let you all know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.

We had a very unwanted "boot virus" on our main computer so DH had to cart it off to the puter ER for a while, luckily they were able to save everything on the hard drive. They had it for about two weeks.
We have a backup computer in my craft room, but when we fired it up, it refused to boot up and DH ended up wiping the hard drive clean and I lost all of the information I had on that one. Including all of the cross stitch charts I had designed in the past and all of my stash info I had in my "Organized Expressions" software.
Oh well, at least all of the designs I've done in the last two to three years was on the main computer. From now everything is getting backed up onto CD.

Right now I'm in the process of getting my hand-dyed threads in order with pictures and all, so I should be getting around to making a blog for selling those soon and maybe some of my charts after we get another printer. The one we have just needs ink, but getting my hubby to get the cartridges refilled when he has his sights set on a new printer, scanner, copier model is next to impossible.

I have a finish for this year, but won't have a pic until I wash and press it to see how a few more of my hand dyed threads fare. I want to make sure they are safe for your treasured needlework projects before I start to offer them up.

Take Care Everyone & Happy Stitching
Hugs, Sandy

  2. You poor baby! I'd have a heart attack if I lost my computer. I'm on DH's side with the copier/scanner/printer; I just bought one because we ran out of ink, lol.

  4. Wow talk about bad luck with both of your computers. They are great when they are working but boy oh boy when they crash it is not a pretty thing. Backing everything on CD is always wise.
    Welcome back.
