Machines are great when they work!

I guess you must have thought I'd gone missing but no, I'm still here! I've been having a few computer problems and have had to reinstall the OS. I'm not sure it's fixed - it's still very slow to boot up and the programs are slow to start up too - I have one more 'fix' to try (resetting the PRAM) and if that doesn't work then it's off to the Mac doctor as I am out of ideas. And the guarantee ran out two weeks ago!

In the meantime I have been stitching on Sew Seasons, a combination of the four Sew designs into one. Sew Nautical is stitched apart from the 'sun' and I am awaiting on a reel of gold Soie Surfine to make it's way here to enable me to finish this one. Sew Sew is charted and yet to be stitched - I'm not sure what fabric and threads I will use for this one. 

And here is an updated picture of my Christmas cactus. OK only one flower but what a splendid flower it is!  

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Hi Carol
    I'm really sorry you're still having problems with your computer. I thought you had managed to sort it all out. I hope your final attempt does the trick as getting professional help doesn't come cheap.
    That's a gorgeous flower on your cactus and such a stunning colour.

    No good with the computer problems! Beautiful flower on your cactus. Mine is just starting to flower now and I will share some photos as well.

    Love the Christmas cactus! Ours needs fertilizer-hasn't bloomed yet and is very small.
