I'm slowly but surely getting all the Christmas stuff done. I learned the value of backing up my computer files yesterday. A couple of years ago I put our Christmas card address list into an Access data base. From that I can then use print merge with Publisher and print out address labels for all our cards. It saves a lot of time as I don't have to write out each address. Well somehow my Access files got corrupted and as I'm trying to salvage that situation, I deleted one of the files, after I had backed up what I thought I needed. No, I backed up the wrong thing! So I was going to have to start from scratch. Then my guy asked if I had ever used the terabyte drive he bought me for backing up my files. I actually had and was able in about 2 minutes to recover an uncorrupted file and print the labels. I still ended up spending most of the afternoon on the Christmas cards. But I guess it could have been worse!
You can probably guess that I've not been in my sewing room very much So not much progress to report for the last week. I did complete cutting out all the parts for the Seeing Star BOM center block and have it partially assembled.
I'm on vacation all this week, but I still have Christmas stuff that needs to get done, so I'm not sure how much sewing I'll get to do this week. I should have a better chance at getting some sewing done next week.
Once I finish this post, I'm going to get a fresh cup of coffee and cruise over to Judy's Patchwork Times to check this week's design walls. But before I do that, I want to wish all my Design Wall Monday and Stash Report blog buddies a Happy Holiday season!
