    Do you have an old quilt to wrap yourself in for the rest of the day? Sounds like an old quilt day.

    ooooh ouch I hope your hubby is as sweet as mine. When I had to recont what happened and shoe the camera and tripod he just looked and said "thats amazing" in a tone like I'd done a fabulous job breaking ^&&*(. I'm a lucky girl despite my foibles with technical stuff. I understand its just stuff in the end but I was so excited to have a need for my stupid expensive machine and I really enjy taking photos:(.

    Thank you everyone for the warm responses. Thanks to the lovely people at the Cotton Patch in Lafayette CA and their loner machine I'm able to keep to finish the project, and because mine broke i discovered their store and was introduced to a whole new quilt world,

    Sounds like the day I had recently when I took my dog to vet to have her nails clipped on the spur of the moment...went in to his office..she definitely was not happy with getting her nails clipped and in the process snapped the leg off of my expensive eye glasses and tore a strip of skin off one of my legs...I told the vet that was an expensive nail clipping...$20.00 for the clipping and $500.00 for a new pair of glasses....LOL

    My computer crashed also and I thought I was going to lose everything. My computer person put the hard drive in the freezer for an hour, it freed up some kind of arm that was preventing him from retreiving the files and he saved everything. I don't know how it worked like that but it may work for you also. It is worth a try to save all your files. Good luck if you try it.

    First, I'm sorry you are having such a bad time at this. The quilt is beautiful, it will be all worth it in the end. Second, in my life the old adage is true...If it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all!

    Your quilt is beautiful, but I would leave all electronics along if I was you. :-D :-D :-D :-D Seriously, we all have days ( or weeks like that) Great job on the quilt.

    The quilt looks great!

    And I know, there are days when it doesn't pay to get out of bed... :?

    Hoping everything turns around for you :)
