That all said, I'm having fun. Plus I started prowling through my art books looking for inspiration for new projects...something I haven't done in months.
Its good to be back.
The other accomplishments of the week, which took up a lot of time were technical. I managed to connect my laptop to my printer adding new drivers. PLUS I even connected my new Cannon Powershot to my laptop. Both tasks I've been putting off but will make my life MUCH easier. Of course I needed a Youtube video to walk me through the complicated process. This always reminds me of a quote from my brother-in-law
"Its not worth knowing if it doesn't have a tutorial on Youtube"
FIND OF THE WEEK
For months, I've been looking for new rotary cutting rulers. Did you know that rulers eventually wear out and you can't see the lines on them any more? Well apparently the lifespan is about 25 years. So now all my favorite rulers needed replaced. But guess what??? They don't make these rulers anymore. I gotta be one of the few quilters who doesn't like the yellow Olfa rulers. I'm sure its because I learned to quilt in the early 90's on Nancy Crow's QuickLine rulers but honestly they are the only ones I like the best. The lines are clearly marked and I know exactly where to look. I use those exclusively with the Patchwork Place Bias Squares which I have in 3 different sizes. So I've been stalking Ebay looking for new ones and finally hit the jackpot! At first I balked at the total cost of $58 (with the shipping) but then I realized I was getting 9 rulers plus other goodies. Not to mention I hadn't realized how expensive rulers are now new. Wowsy!! So I stopped being so cheap and bought them. So glad I did!! I got the rulers I needed and some to share with friends!So that's what's new around here....
What Have You Been Up to Creatively?
