It's been a really fun week here at Dustbunny Haven ... NOT! It all started out innocently enough. Easter came and I finished Bossy's dress just as the buzzer rang to head over to MIL's new home. We tried to take Princess's camera ... but it don't work no more. Freshly charged batteries didn't work and DH was chomping at the bit to get going so I didin't have any time to do anything about it. Hmmm that seems to be a running theme through my life now.
My mom was visiting from NY, so she put the kiddos to work on Monday. They got their rooms clean while DH took a practice test to upgrade his contractor's license. The good news is the the rooms looked great and DH easily passed the test (I knew he would). Since it was a good day all around, I took the opportunity to wipe the girl's PC so they could start out fresh again (they are using DH's old PC)
Well Tuesday came and it wasn't so good. Something shorted out on my PC's motherboard ... now it's toast. I'm hoping beyond hope that I can salvage the hard drive ... because of course I haven't backed up in years. Now I'm relegated my using the girls PC ... 9 years old and still plugging along (barely) And not only that ... I don't' have any of the toys I had on mine.
I did get my yarn from Knitpicks! Beautiful stuff, even mom was impressed. I started the buttonhole bag for the RichmondMommies KAL, so much fun to knit. I wanted to add a flower to it ... but ... I think you know where this is going ... all my clip art to make something with is ... guess? On My PC ... grrr Anyone know where I can get a chart for a nice little monochromatic flower? Or even the URL to that site that will turn clip art into a chart? (because of course my links haven't been backed up either!)
Please send good vibes! I need some.

I'm sorry about the electronics picking on you they are so mean when they do that, I swear I could cry when they pick on me. Glad you had a great Easter!! :)
Eileen! Oh NO! This PC business is no good! Here's the link to the charting site you gave me - I actually think it's on RM too, in the post about the KAL!
Have you seen the book Picture Knits? I have a copy and there are a few flowers, but not monochromatic ones. A couple would probably work with just one color. I could fax you a few pages or we could meet up (at Wal-Mart!). I have a meetig tomorrow night from 7-8, so I'll miss Knit Night, but I could drop it by before or after if you'll be around. You might find another pattern you like better!
That sounds great :D I'll shoot you an email.
