DBM #9 - Something has gone Wrong

Not anything on my Design Board....oh, no....that is all coming along just fine!

The problem lies with my new computer....why, oh why, oh why!.....don't fret, I am not using it now!

While I was  visiting blogs that I have linked up to recently .... I somehow downloaded a virus while visiting a recommended site...a malware virus which I cannot shake...so I am back on my old dinosaur of a computer and will have to take the new one in to get checked out this week....what a nuisance!

So, in saying that, my design board may not look as presentable as it usually does as I cannot use PicMonkey with this system....oh, and I so wanted to pretty it up!

On my Design Board this week,

I will be continuing with my Blue Fusion blankie. I am taking photo's as I go and will be writing my own tutorial for this because I couldn't find any tutorials to answer all my questions and I want to make another similar blanket so I will need to remember how I did it. This one is becoming less and less of a secret!

I will also be continuing with the Little 'Bird' Quilt...two cathedral blocks complete....4 to go and then two inbetween cathedral blocks need to be experimented with.

I meant to trace block 3 of A Country Tea Party over the weekend but I was a little distracted with the goings on with the computer......

  1. Hi Cath! what a pest that there is problems with the new computer already... hope it's back with you soon!

  2. Yuk hate when that happens lucky you have the back up !!

  3. oh no nasty virus.... your fusion blanket looks great.... sorry I misunderstood I thought you just wanted to know the size wool I used... I did follow a tutorial but used my own wool size and needles that I had ...



  4. Bad luck with the virus, hope you solve the problem soon. I love your bird blocks and blankets!

  5. Sorry about the virus. Hubby is the household computer wiz so I usually get back online in one day. I love the little birds quilt. What adorable fabric and a great pattern. I joined your link-up and added you to my post. Thanks for hosting.

  6. Computer problems are a definite pain. Hope they can fix your computer up quickly. Love the Cathedral Window blocks. It's going to be a very sweet baby quilt.

  7. Both of those birds are so cute. My vision of what this will look like has grown a little with the addition of these two blocks. I'm so sympathetic about your computer virus! I know that has to be such a pain in the tush.

  8. Ugh! So sorry about your computer issues - hopefully they'll be resolved quickly. Your little cathedral windows are so pretty, I really like the look of cathedral windows. Thanks for sharing at Main Crush Monday! :)
