Computer, Birthday, new Pin Keep, and Quilt progress

I have been MIA for several weeks now, my computer had been in the shop and I finally got it back yesterday. Since I went back to factory system restore I lost all of my patterns and pictures. Thank goodness, a few pictures and a few patterns were saved on a Flash Drive, please don't put off saving your things get a flash drive and save your things today, my pictures esp. are what broke my heart the most loosing them, even though I had alot of money into my patterns.
 But I am sick, I am still having pop ups, so it will go back to the shop again, hopefully I can stay in touch a little with my daughers IPad. Computers sure can be a headache and an expense also.
  I did seem to get more accomplished when I didn't have my computer. he he I finished my latest pinkeep,
I was able to work on my quilt a little.  I have 10 squares made of the 9 patch which I need to cut and sew into the disappearing 9 patch,
and 10 squares finished of the disappearing 9 Patch, now 36 more squares to go. This is a big project.
I had a birthday on March 16th. and was really spoiled.
  My wonderful friend Jean "Prim Crafts" left the most wonderful surprises hanging on my door for my Birthday. She always spoils me rotton.

I think this sweet bunny will be added to her pattern line, love her!

  5. So sorry you lost your patterns. It is good advise to have them backed up. I was saddened to lose precious photos of my son who I lost when our computer gave out. Wonderful eye candy.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
