Not entirely sure what was wrong with my computer , but it seems to be OK now.
It would get so far in starting up , and then freeze. The mouse was still working , but nothing else would respond , not even shutting down .
We found out that it would work if started up in safe mode , so did that a few times , then did a full virus scan , and here we are . No virus showed up , but everything seems to be in proper working order , for which I am truly thankful .
Whilst my computer was offline , I borrowed hubbys' occasionally, but then his got hit with a virus bomb, so I wasn't commenting just in case. Both PCs are now seemingly OK , let's just hope that they stay that way .
Well, while I wasn't able to waste lots of time playing daft games on line, I made up for it by stitching and sewing .
I ended up stitching Tramp whilst doing the wren for MIL , so one happy little girl , but now I need to make a cushion cover or two ,lol .
This was my start , and where I was when the computer decided to play up .
I have also been working on ABC Lessons a bit too . This is the latest progress pics ,though I have done another line and started the next one since these photos were taken .
Both kids were on the same team for sports day , and their team came second , so they were very excited about that .
We had a special assembly on Tuesday , and my son got a super star award , one of five in his class, for progress and effort through out the year . And , both kids got attendance awards , so we are very happy and proud parents at the moment .
So , end of term means teacher gifts . Funds are still tight , so there were some home made gifts this year . I made a couple of cute "things" for my daughters' teaching assistants . The teachers got mugs and bag holders.
I wonder if I will get as much stitching done now that the computer is back on ,lol . Mind you , the kids are now on holiday , so I will no doubt be kept busy entertaining them . Both kids want to do some stitching though , so that will be interesting .
I have also been chosen to receive a travelling pattern , which has arrived ,so I will shortly be posting a pic of that too .
Thanks for reading , I will hopefully be back to commenting now too , yippee !
Take care ,
Second finish of the year
