Sorry for the Delay!

Hey everyone - I'm so sorry it's taken a while for me to post. I thought that by now I would have been able to post some pictures but there's a problem. It's not with the camera thank goodness, but there's something on the computer that's preventing it from recognizing it when I connect it via USB. There is nothing wrong with the camera, the docking station or the software, as a friend of mine kindly plugged it into their PC and got it working no problem, so until I find out why my computer isn't recognizing it when it is plugged in, there's going to be no pictures I'm afraid, which is a real pain. I will be getting a new computer at the end of the month, as DH is taking this one when he goes, so I think that will be the end of the camera problem anyway. In the meantime, I'm going to get a USB card reader, as very kindly suggested by Natty - thank you Natty!x It will be handy to have if ever there are future problems - I should get it next week.

Last weekend I went on a 'Stitching Get Together', which was fantastic! There was about 17 of us, chatting, LOTS of laughing and showing each other what we had completed - it was good to get away from it all and this time, it didn't feel so difficult coming back home as it did when I came back home from Ireland.

I took along an L*K design, from the 'Thanksgiving' series, called 'In all Things, Give Thanks' - I finished the lettering on the bottom of the design last night. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it at the moment, but I'm toying with the idea of making it a middle panel for a cushion cover.

Well that's about it for now. I promise I will post my Ireland and WIP photos as soon as I am able. Thanks for dropping by! xx

Hello Carto, just wanted to thank you so much for the entry you left on my Blog - you are wonderful! I have referenced an entry you recently put on your blog, which talked about your Mom and the advice she gave you when you are feeling blue. If you read my latest blog entry, you will see what I have written. Hugs, Ali xx

Hi Heidi!
These computer problems -not to mention Blogger that won't always let you post pics, so that I download the pics before writing anything- are really frustrating...
But don't worry: we will be waiting patiently for the pics...
Reassure me: husband takes the puter, but you do keep the cat, don't you?!
Lots of love, my friend!
Lili

Hey, Carto! I'm glad to read that you went to a stitch along! Girlfriends are the best, aren't they?

Can't wait to see your pics! Have to try to clean out the USB port? It's long and deep, so there could be some dust preventing a good connection. It may not work, but it's an inexpensive first try...

I hope things are getting a little easier for you now, but remember I'm always here if you need to chat.
