Hello my quilty friends! Wow, the technology we use sometimes comes back to haunt us! This whole loss of photos on several of my recent posts I believe were my home computer and my phone just not talking to each other.
I'm sure you've all been there in some way or another?
I know all of you, who are all over the latest technology upgrades etc and etc. You are younger than I and I just want to use the darn technology, not have to have a degree in technology otherwise, its all for not! Have you all noticed that those of us over 50 actually do have a vote.
Hopefully, you'll continue to follow my blog even though I'm done with changing between photos taken with my phone and those taken by my own camera. It's really quite exhausting to try and keep up with all the changes required for cell phones.
So simply said, I'm not taking photos anymore with my phone unless its an emergency! I'm going back to my perfectly good digital camera.
As you can imagine, my life has had added stress to my every day trying to figure this all out by myself. Because we all know that when you have a lifetime to waste, you can spend gazillions of days trying to use the F&Q on Google.com to solve your Blogger problems.
I know I'm ranting but I rarely do this on my blog, so give me some accolades for being over 50 and trying to learn all this stuff. OK?
Enough already! I'm going hand quilting and that's exactly what I've done to eliviate my recent photo stress. I love hand quilting and quite frankly its been an awesome diversion.
As you can see, I do use a hoop. I totally love this hoop, I won it when my Silver Linings CQ was deemed lovely enought to win 1st prize at the 2004 IMP and Quiolt Show in Ontario, Canada. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I bet all of you are agreeing with me, by laughing out loud at the tenacity it takes sometimes to use all the confangled devices and such. I don't care it it makes me sound old and cranky!!
I am not old thinking or cranky for no reason. I do hope that Google.com is reading this, so they can help the consumer connect all this stuff before we all over 50 yrs old, sign off on the whole darn lot of it. You know what I mean?
I just love the dimply affect that hand quilting gives you. No amount of machine quilting will do it for you. Its all the slow quilting movement, with slowly working along with needle and thread in hand.
Do you see this ripply little wee line of hand stitching across the vast expanse of cream solid?
And while you're responding with your thoughts on hand quilting, you can count on me over at my temporary sewing womb starting another of Sujata's quilts. Want to join me, let me know in a comment. Cool come on ladies, it will make an awesome Christmas quilt!
