Part One Has Begun!
As the saying goes, It's Friday in Australia! (That is akin to saying that "It's 5:00 somewhere!" *LOL*)
I've uploaded Part 1 of Old Tobacco Road! I'll probably post Part 2 either tomorrow night,or Saturday morning.
I've got a cool thing I want to share with you. How many of you have files and files of inspirational quilt pics you've saved on your hard drive, but never take the time to flip through them? A few months ago,DH attended a business thing, and one of the door prizes was a Kodak Easy Share digital picture frame. I've taken a memory stick, and uploaded all the inspiration pics I've taken over the years, and plugged in the digital picture frame to the left of my sewing machine! Now as I'm sewing I get this little inspirational slide show.....constantly refreshing my memory as to why I loved this quilt, or that border, or those colors. I love it! It's like flipping through my favorite quilt books or magazines without having to turn the pages!
And...those pics are safe off the computer. It's been acting weird lately and I was afraid I was going to lose all this stuff anyway. I still may be due for a reformatting of the hard drive soon, so I'm in the process of backing up everything else I need as well. Maybe I just need more RAM? Whatever. It's not a happy computer and is running in slow-mo.
But no matter what...my "dream quilts" are safe on the memory stick, doing their dance near my machine while I sew!
