Ok - so I have had some technical problems here, which has been VERY IRRITATING INDEED.
After I'd got all the routine stuff out the way yesterday morning, I spent a happy hour or so laying the blocks of QuiltSue's Festive Mystery Quilt out various different designs and taking pics of each on my camera, which I then wanted to put on the screen so I could compare and see which I wanted to go with.
But there was a problem taking the pics from the camera onto the computer which I couldn't seem to solve whatever I did. I gave up before I chucked the damn computer through the damn window and stamped off to do other stuff. What a day for a technical glitch - I could see you all having fun with Lynn (on the phone screen), baking and making and having a lovely time but couldn't join in. Boo boo boo!
I was so cross that I didn't even look at the computer until late afternoon today (actually, the weather was so good for once that I was quite busy doing other stuff) but magically the glitch seems to have resolved itself, and I can make my final layout choice.
Not that I've had time to actually do much sewing, but I'm confident it will fly together now the difficult decision making is done!
I think that I'd better put a few blocks together to set in concrete my design choice before scrutinising properly how you all got on yesterday - from what I've seen so far, I just know I'll see other ways to lay the blocks out which I'll love too, and I've had quite enough dithering and inaction for one weekend!
Summer, The Quilt - Julie of the The Crafty Quilter created this fun and smart quilt as a qal with tips and advice, and I joined in. I couldn't pass up this design; I love ...
