I'm sorry to have been absent for a while but I had a week of lots of things going wrong. First my computer went haywire. I had just switched it on and some windows updates were loading when the electricity supply went off. After it came back on, all I got was a black screen and no amount of coaxing would get me any further. A good friend came to the rescue and tried for a couple of hours before he had to take it away for more ministrations. The upshot was that he had to wipe the hard disc and start again so I lost everything on the hard drive. Lesson learned! I will back up my data regularly. I will, I will I will. I am slowly getting programmes re installed but it all takes time. Then the shower went wrong and we need a new one so I'm having to wash my hair in the bath like in the good old days. I tell you it has made me realise how lucky we are to have all these facilities, but if we ever lose power, more of our lives will be spent just doing the bare necessities.
On the up side, one of my friends retired on Friday and we went round for dinner on Saturday to help her celebrate. She wants to take up quilting now she has time so I bought her the Quilter's Bible and as my sewing skills leave much to be desired I quilted a card with paper. I saw the idea on Pinterest somewhere and came up with this
I cut 2cm squares out of 2 different patterned papers and 2 colours of card which I had embossed before cutting. I cut some squares in half to make up the pattern and stuck them onto a backing mat of card.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to get a little surfing time in this week as things return to normal round here.
