Dead PC

Sadly, my home PC has currently died! I'm hoping that it's just a problem with the power unit and can be fixed quickly by the techie guys. We have a laptop, but being without my files etc is a pain, so I really hope that I can get them back.

In the meantime, I had some nice quilty mail.
This packet is from Kate , part of her ATC challenge.

It's along time since I've made any ATCs, but I'm looking forward to playing with this lot! There were some lovely beads, as well as the card bases in the packet. I have a couple of ideas on how to use them percolating already

This is the only sewing I have done in this last week. The riding school that we go to were having a fund-raising weekend for Breast Cancer research, with pyjama rides and the ponies made up with pink ribbons in their manes/tails. Unfortunately due to a back problem just now, I had to forgo the pyjama ride, but I did make a cushion for them to raffle. I hope that some pony-mad child wins it!

Don't you just hate it when work interferes with quilting!
I have loads on at work just now ( double what I can really cope with) so I'm not getting home until after 7pm each night ( fortunately DD is staying with her Gran just now) This means that I'm just too tired to get anything done in the sewing room. All I've managed in the last 2 weeks is preparing more melons for my applique blocks. I have about 50 all tacked and ready for the tidy stitching.
Never mind, all this work has meant that I am building up plenty of flexi time, so I'm taking Friday off and DH and I are going to the Festival of Quilts. It will be our 21st wedding anniversary, can you think of any nicer way to celebrate?

Normal service should resume shortly, and I'll have lots to show you
