RIP Stitchy Stash

Hi all,

It's avery sad day in the world of stitching Sam, so please bow your heads for the thought of lost charts, papers, designs and all my lovely WIP pictures.

Yes a virus came to visit, McAfee got rid of it, but not before it blocked access to my desktop where all my lovely crafty stiuff was kept.

I've been thinking for ages about backing them up or getting an external hard drive, but out of sheer laziness never bothered as I've not had a problem with my PC since I got McAfee years ago.  Oh well it's taught me a very tough lesson.

I've just added up and it's really only 8 charts that I've paid for and not printed off (about £30) so it's not that bad, I'm more gutted with the loss of the photos.

Good news though my holiday and wedding snaps were backed up on my blackberry programme, and they can't be replaced so that's good. 

AND hubby has said I can buy more charts....

I don't think he meant right now, but he still said it right???

Well now go - everyone - save your charts, picture, designs and other bits and pieces onto disk, or 'the cloud' or something - just do it!

Baby Friends update!

So after agonising whether to plough on with Think pink's gridding or get this sampler out of the way before a new start I decided that actually it wouldn't take that long do get it done in a reasonable period of time.

So here they are:

I'm doing the backstitch as I go along since it really brings the designs to life, I'm to put the finishing touches to the dog on the left then start on the shelf they're sitting on - then onto Giraffe!  It's wierd how you create a relationship with the characters you stitch... maybe that's just me!

Well my poor little Peggy (my cat) has had a poorly tummy and she's on antibiotics at the moment to clear it.  I do hope the vet says she's fine tomorrow when I take her back for a check up.

Happy Stitching everyone!

I think my angel card has worked!

Well just a little bit!  Christine has texted me to say that the cancer is no so bad that she has to have chemo now and just radiotherepy on it's own which is something!

So thank you all for your prayers and kind wishes. xxx

I've ordered a new frame for Think Pink, I was going to wait until the birth sample was done, but had such a bad day at work today that I'm just thinking - stuff it!

May still change my mind, but I always find that cross stitch helps me with anything and trust me I've had some bad times in the past.  So what's everyone else up to at the mo?

Hippywitch - I love your latest posts, but for some reason can't post a comment!

Happy Stitching!
