Ahh... blogging on the computer feels great! The problem was my memory card, as it turns out, and not my laptop card reader. Although there was, apparently, a problem with the motherboard because they did replace that. So I've put a new memory card in the camera and even though I have lost all my tutorial photos for the tutorial that never got posted, I did not lose any family photos.
One of the projects I worked on while I had no computer was this table runner for my coffee table using some of the leftover blocks from my Craftsy Block of the Month Quilt Top.
I also made another scrappy mug rug and plan to make two more (so that I have four mug rugs total in the living room). This one was a quilt as you go method I guess. Just cut my background (white) and made my quilt sandwich, then stitched scraps to the top of it, leaving the raw edges. Nothing fancy.
