Happy Ending . . . .

Great News!  I was able to retrieve my lost blog posts and am back to where I was this morning before I accidentally deleted my last 20 posts!  I was lucky that I only deleted one page worth of posts and not all of them, and that the deleted posts were still in Google Reader. I'm just not used to the new blogger formats, I'll be more careful in the future.

The bad news is that I was only able to copy the original posts, the comments were lost, which frankly are my favorite part of my posts!

I kept telling myself that there are worse things that could happen to me, but it put a damper on my day just the same, I feel so much better now that the posts are back.   I think I still have some clean-up work to do on my Lifetime Quilt List but that's OK.

Thanks all for your support and suggestions!!


I'm not sure how adding the old posts will impact how you read my blog, don't think you're going crazy if you read a post and think to yourself, "this sounds vaguely familiar", you've probably read it before!
