major change/gathering of blogger quilters
You know if you are an internet addict what your worse nightmare would be. That's right, your computer goes dead on you- and like any accident it is NEVER a good time to have that happen.
Thursday morning I turned off my computer- I rarely turn my computer off-I leave it on 24/7 most of the time. In fact power outages often turn it off for me. hate that. My computer only had one power switch on it- so when it would not work-too bad, so sad. We thought a new power supply and/or switch would fix the problem. I had arranged to take Friday off-and spent that day doing other things in the morning until computer tech guy arrived with the part. An hour later-the verdict was I had fried my processor. The fix? a new computer. He then spent the next two hours updating the loaner computer I am currently very grateful to be using.
I have a back up-in fact, the hard drive is probably fine. So all my data is not gone forever- what of course is lost are those programs I bought online and do not copy over in full back up. One of them being the back up program for my external drive back up system....now tell me is that not one of the most stupid things?
I am not online to rant...vent a bit sure, but truly, stuff happens. Until I order a new computer-at least I am online and can feel more connected than not. No photo access of course, and all other programs I am used to using. It will take a while after getting a new computer to get it set up to where I feel back on track too.
So- let's be happy with sharing what a fabulous time we all had yesterday- I invited a few local blogging quilters to meet at my home and enjoy visiting and lunch. We did some show and tell of our quilts (naturally I had the most being at my home) and several took lots of photos. try here for another post on our day and links to everyone.
It was a fabulous time together with lots of talking and enjoying each other. I kept the coffee coming and lunch went well too. I even got some hand stitching in too. All too soon everyone had to leave - agreeing we need to get together again.
