My old computer died and went to the great computer scrap heap in the sky. Fried motherboard.
So--I've spent most of the week offline, except for occasional trips to the library for one-hour public access on shared computers. I experienced a fairly severe case of cyber withdrawal.
So what did I do with all that extra time I would normally spend at the computer?
Sad to say, not much sewing. And the craft fair is only 5 weeks away. Yikes! I did make some quilt blocks for a too long neglected church charity project, and I also made some headway on granddaughter Erin's graduation quilt.
I picked up an extra shift at work, attended live seminars to earn CEUs for license renewals, and spent a half day at a work session for Discover Nebraska -- a quilt guild project that presents a Nebraska history lesson to 4th graders in Nebraska using quilts: http://www.discovernebraska.org.
I'm happy to report that a new computer is installed -- sort of. Nothing fancy, and we kept the old monitor for now. I still need to transfer some salvaged files, and get set up with word processing software and photo editing software (obviously!!). But at least I'm back online. I can check my email, Etsy shop, Facebook, and Pinterest -- and reconnect with my blogging buddies.
BTW, if you're wondering about those colorful fabric thingies by my keyboard and mouse---I purchased those pretty and functional wrist supports from Comfy Creations on Etsy several months ago: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ComfyCreations?section_id=11950941,
