Knockout Virus

Our business is pretty much dead in the water today as our computer system and server have been attacked by a virus. We discovered a problem late yesterday afternoon and by this morning when the experts were called in, it was obvious what happened. So far most clients have been patient, according to our staff, but we need to get things back up ASAP. We will recover, but it will probably cost us beaucoup bucks - ugh.

Oh well. On a lighter note I did get my February piece into a little frame I had stashed away and set out on my sideboard.

The frame is a 5x7 and the fit is a little close for my taste, but I can redo it easily if I find a better frame or finish.

Last night as I was catching up with The Good Wife episodes, I returned to Red Velvet Inscription, finishing the second square and beginning the third.

I think I'm finally getting the hang of stitching on 40 count linen and I'm extremely thankful for strong lighting and magnification!

Thanks for your suggestions of things to do on Friday mornings with two of my grandchildren! Stay tuned for further adventures with the littles!

Sorry about the computer woes. I know how upsetting it is with personal data and can only imagine how frustrating it would be for a business. Lovely stitching as always. Hugs.

Your Feb finish looks good. I'm changing the Feb block up a bit but this is a fun series.

So sorry to hear about the computer, they can be best friends or worst enemies! Your little Feb. piece looks wonderful. I know you will have fun with the children no matter what you decide to do with them. In about a month we are going to visit our dear little ones. With my back, it has been almost a year. That's way too long!!!

These magnifying lamps are the real secret for stitching on 40 ct fabric, aren't they? :)
Very nice project and nice progress on it.
