New post with a new computer

While trying to send an e-mail yesterday, old bessy (the computer) crapped out on me. Lost EVERYTHING!!!!!!! Pictures are gone, e-mails are gone, files are gone, patterns and recipies are gone, it is all GOOOONNNNNEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to Wally World and purchased a new one and went in to $350 more into debt....So all evening I was updating and downloading and entering pass words and e-mail addresses. Other than that not much has been going on. Franc smashed his finger and we got to spend 3 hours in the ER. Here is a pic of Frankenfinger

I will spare the gorry detailes but the tip is broken and he had to have 5 big ole stitches. He keeps trying to show it to me, gross!!

I got my beaded hand finished, well at least the beaded part. Now working on the quilting part. I am going to frame it in black fabric and then add some other elements to it. I have a fabric origami book by Mary Jo Hiney called Quiltagami. I will be adding some origami in to the design.
Its not as cool as Beths beaded hand but she has more experience with bead embroidery than i have. This is my first large detailed piece.

Beautiful hand! (the beaded one, not the smashed one - hope it heals soon)

Love the colors on the beaded hand. Beautiful work. Also, like those blocks you did especially the brown and blue one.
