Virus are just downright MEAN!

My computer is in the shop and I am on a borrowed one, so I can't download any pictures. I have a project I want to show you - my first Faux Applique block from Helen Stubbings book.

Just a word of warning - if you get a popup that says it can not open a page you are trying to view because your Internet Exployer is out of date, DON'T FOLLOW THE LINK TO UPDATE IT! That is just what I did, looked legit to me, and it has about destroyed my computer. Doggoneit - I hope they catch the ones creating these viruses and lock them all away for a long time.

Sick computers do not equal fun! Thanks for the pop up warning though!

Sorry about the sick computer. I agree with you about the people who are responsible for your plight.

Aww Teresa! I'm sorry this happened. It's really distressing. This is like uber-virtual in that we can't even SEE what you're doing. But that's okay because the unveiling is going to be SUPER exciting!

Thanks for the warning. I had a dream last night that I got a virus on my computer. Weird.
Sorry that you got one.
