Good News & Bad News


My good news is that I received a postcard in the mail from Jill over at the Quilt Rat! That sure makes your day when you come home from a hard day at work and find a quilty treat in your mailbox! Thanks so much Jill!
My bad news is that I had a computer disaster and lost all of my October photos! If you know how much I love my camera and photos, you know how upset I am about it. I lost my Halloween photos, my daughter's grad photos, photos of family at Thanksgiving, not to mention all my quilting photos....yes, even my quilt show photos...ugh!  I am sure this was "user error" but it sure is a nasty reminder of how important it is for me to save my photos onto disk before I delete them from my photo card. 
I can show you the photo of the tablerunners made by the quilters at the Senior's Centre. You can see my version here.  My thanks to Monica Solorio-Snow for letting us use her pattern - you can see it here. This is a fun project to sew and would make a beautiful Christmas gift if you are looking for ideas. 
Didn't these turn out great!?!

Love the postcard. So bright and cheery.

I'm so sorry about losing all your photos. I back mine up in an on line photo album so at least I know they are somewhere else if the worst happens.
Remember though that you may have lost the hard evidence but you haven't lost the memories
Love and hugs Gina xxx

So bad that you lost your photos.Could they be in your recycle bin?
The runners are pretty and the ladies look very pleased with them.

Oh Kathy....I'd be sick to loose those photos......that completely sucks!
I am thinking of getting an extra hard drive to back everything up on.........sick I'd just be sick!

I do hope the card gave you a little bright spot......so nice of you to post it. Thanks
