It's been a rough few weeks in the Ink Circles IT department. My main computer suffered what was later diagnosed as a hard drive controller failure while it was repairing/recovering from a pesky virus. The tech I took it to thought the two issues were unrelated, which I hope is true, as hardware eating viruses would be a scary thing. So, I need to send it back to the mothership (Dell) for repair. I couldn't wait weeks to be back online, so I did the thing any other red-blooded American with a Costco card would do. :o)
It was more of a speedbump than a brick wall. Most files and things were recovered from an external hard drive backup, but some things are M.I.A., like the emails in my inbox. So... if any of you stitchers had sent photo finishes that I hadn't posted yet, please accept my apologies and shoot me another copy.
Meanwhile, the band played on. And Cristin stitched. She's sent me this photo of her Twisted Heart finish. She added some initials and a date to personalize it. She used the recommended colors for thread, but worked in on a lovely shade of lilac Belfast linen. Cristin has another version planned that promises to be even more creative and colorful, so I'm standing by!
Thanks again for everyone's patience during these past two weeks. Keep on Stitchin'
