It didn't take long. Matt fixed my computer. It was re-formatted, which means the drudgery of re-installing everything. But I have a new motherboard, more memory.. so it's faster. here is the fying geese quilt that I promised to show you. It's hard to tell, but the blue ran all over the large triangles between the geese..
Someone suggested soaking it in Oxyclean and washing it a couple more times. I might give it a try and see what happens.
