I am tearing my hair out right now with the darn computer
and my photo editing system!
New Blogger isn't helping either.
It's taken me ages to put together the simplest of posts
and in the process I've forgotten half of what I had intended to write.
However this was the start of my day
beautiful sunrise with Venus still hovering in the sky.
So on with my intended day dedicated to more stitching on
and the colour is still off plus I now see I have the letter j in Quilter,
I am not going to begin the whole process again so it's going to have to stay.
This new system is far more time consuming loading up photos.
There is now a grand total of four Postage Stamp blocks
picking up these tiny squares plays havoc with arthritic fingers
and I'm now using tweezers and the process is
much less painful.
I am overwhelmed with my tubs and other containers
of scraps, something has to be done because they're bugging me,
some will be given away and the remainder will be
assigned to a variety of scrap quilts.
First up I have a number of plastic boxes which hold a mix of
1.5" strips and now I need to decide what they will be used for.
A Lego quilt is a possibility, lots of these around right now,
has a whole series of Dumpster Diving quilts, the original was based on
a Lego quilt,
go visit and you'll see some beauties!
So these are my strips below, boxes are 11" x 14"
and, apart from the third box, they're mostly Kaffe Fassett Collective
fabrics with a few others mixed here and there.
The strips in this last box are a mix of widths
but I'm happy to haul out the Accuquilt and reduce them all to 1.5"
Any ideas for simple strippy projects gladly received.
One camellia and one rose photos before I go and make a much needed cup of tea,
if I was able to drink alcohol (doesn't mix with my medications) I'd be
slicing a lemon into a stiff gin and tonic!!
Sadly I can't remember the name of the camellia below
but this rose is
and has a delicious perfume.
All from me, hopefully my next post will be written in a much
calmer frame of mind and with computer, photo and blogger
problems all sorted.
Keep safe and well.
