I’m in the middle of a computer crisis today. My laptop had critical hard drive failure this weekend and I’m waiting for repair and to see if any of my data can be restored. I am usually faithful about backing up because of all the pictures, patterns and documents I produce. Unfortunately, and insanely, I have not backed up in several months which means if my data can’t be recovered, I will lose design work, photos and documents from those last few months. If it wasn’t shared either online for via email, I won’t have it. I can’t even begin to express how distressing the prospect is!

To detract from the stress, I’m diligently working on cleaning my studio, finishing some charity projects and pushing ahead with 12 for 2012. My August quilt top just needs borders and I’m about to pull September out of the bag.

Hopefully, the quilt therapy will keep me sane until I know what the damage is!

Tabby Face Block Lotto

The Tabby Face Block Lotto is another ray of sunshine. I’ve received quite a few messages and photos from you all sharing that you’ll have Tabby Faces in the mail this week. How can a slew of happy kitty faces not make me feel better?

And for everyone checking in to see how Tackett is doing, we have not really seen any change. He hasn’t lost weight, but he’s not gained any since the first couple of weeks of his treatment. He still seems chipper, though, so we remain hopeful.

Thanks for listening…see you for Talk To Me Tuesday! Tomorrow’s will be a little different since my computer is out of action…along with all my usual files!

To celebrate the Tabby Face Block Lotto, use coupon code TABBY in my Etsy shop to receive 10% off your total order during the month of September!

    OH MY GOSH! I work from home as well (totally different deal, but none the less, depend upon my laptop everyday.) I am so sorry you are dealing with technology gremlins. Sending you good techno vibes and hoping all looks better soon.

    What a stressful situation, waiting to check on your laptop–I do not design, but I had a similar crisis several years ago, with pictures of our great grandchildren, fortunately other family members could share their copies. Good luck.

    I am so sorry to hear that! Hard drive failure is most distressing..I hope you get at least some, if not all of your data back. Good luck! I am glad to hear Tackett is stable and hasn’t lost any more that’s the silver lining for you 🙂

    You’re giving me a heart attack with the hard drive failure. I hope they can recover the data. When you get back up and running you should consider Carbonite. It’s a program that automatically backs up your files onto their servers. I think it is just $55 a year. Well worth it to avoid losing all data.

    Wishing you the best of luck in your hard drive recovery!!! Much as we love them, computers can cause us a whole lot of stress! (Kind of like kids.) (And husbands)
