I arrived in Sarasota this afternoon, luggage made it ---and I was whisked off to Punta Gorda by happy quilters!
LOOK! Palm Trees! My favorite!
It was a long travel day, and not enough sleep last night ---There were issues with google+ and youtube when I started Quilt-Cam last night. There was a “yes I have read all of the small print and agree to the terms and licenses blah blah blah” form on my laptop screen OVER the camera view when I logged on.
I checked the box to say “yes I have read all of this blabber and agree” --- but there was no button to hit ENTER!
I finally got it working, and it played back last night when I was done, but all day long I’ve been getting emails and messages of “please fix YouTube-- it isn't playing”.
It seems something happened when they archived the video session after we were done last night.
I can’t fix it – it wasn’t my mistake.
Quilt-Cam is not recorded ON TO my computer, it’s live streaming, so there is no video that I can re-upload.
Google and YouTube do things that I have no control over ---so we heave a sigh and throw up our hands and say “Oh well, we will try it again next time!”
But I’m getting leary – because every time I go to set that cam live and start the feed, knowing you are waiting for it, they are always throwing in some new format, different things, moving things around – and I think they just need to get bugs out and quit mucking with stuff before we go elsewhere!
Needless to say – when it’s broken, please contact YOUTUBE – not me. Because I can’t fix it
This is the lovely room where I am tapping away tonight.
This is the beautiful view outside of my window!
((Yes, it was a bit of a rainy day, but it felt wonderful to me!))
I got a great email from Theresa and I wanted to share with you the link to her blog and story! It really made me smile.
But first a bit of background:
Theresa writes:Hello Bonnie,
I know you meet lots of people and may not recall who I am, but I was able to take your workshop (Charlotte's Baskets) last year in Glen Falls, NY. The year prior to that I attended your workshop (My Blue Heaven) in Wellsboro, PA. I've attached a photo for you to put a face to my name. :) I'm the REALLY SHORT one wearing green.
In your spare time (yeah, I hear you laughing), I thought you may enjoy reading a blog post I just wrote today sharing about my experience teaching my 73 year old Dad how to sew for the first time...and the quilt top he made. :)
Thanks for sharing Theresa!
And with that I think I’ done for the day. I will likely curl up and pull out the hexies and relax a bit – I don’t have a machine at my disposal this evening, and actually – quiet hand work is just what this girl needs!
Tomorrow is a My Blue Heaven Workshop –and the fun in Florida begins!
