Bye - Bye Pink Computer :-(

Hey Everyone,
I had to say goodbye to my favorite laptop this week.  Hubby was kind enough to take it to Best Buy to see why it just stopped turning on. I was hoping it was just the power cord but the "experts" say it was my motherboard.  I feel so lost without it !!  I should know better than to depend on something so much {with out proper back-up!}.  As funny as this sounds, if it weren't for the crash in July, and my son saving me by recovering all of my data & putting it on his external hard drive, I'd have nothing right now!  So even though I didn't do routine back-up's to that drive, I did save all my purchased PDF patterns in Gmail so I know at least some things are safe!  Backing up is such a tough lesson. I share this with you as a reminder to Back-Up your stuff!!
On to happier news....  New Fabric!  Last weekend while at JoAnn's Fabric, I ran across tons of cute fabric but resisted for the most part due to the fact that my stash is probably violating a code in the Fire Safety handbook.  That said, I did make a teeny purchase, just because it was SO cute!  Take a look...

I think it's so bright and cheery and ready for Spring! I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet ~ I need to stare at it for a bit.  Any suggestions ?
I'm making a hospital gown for the office.  Cotton is so much nicer than those paper gowns.  I found this cute Ocean Life fabric, which is so appropriate for Laguna Beach.  Here it is in progress on my ironing board.

Isn't this fabric so perfect for Pediatrics? I just love it.

Believe it or not, my embroidery machine is still safe in it's box.  Maybe tomorrow....maybe.  I've scanned through the instruction book and checked out YouTube, hoping to lift the resistance I'm feeling. So maybe tomorrow, actually today, will be the day!

Until Next Time,
