Lost all my widgets

  1. Tried to open a fresh blog with a different theme 'cos I needed to maintain focus elsewhere.
    The new theme was incorrectly applied to my original blog - I reversed the mistake by re-applying the original theme immediately - the posts remain but I have lost all my formatted widgets.
    Is there any possibility of returning to the initial arrangement of the site, complete with widgets, without repeating the setting-up process, or shall I be forced to reformat the sidebars from a blank canvas? (Original theme 'Sunspot' - Thank you Takashi - site is at <http://geoffneilsen.wordpress.com&gt; )

    The blog I need help with is geoffneilsen.wordpress.com.
