Oh boy, new photo system, new to this computer, new to this brain!!! Old camera (2006) not functioning as I remembered it used to, and I had been using an old 2003 Windows XP desktop in the past, but for now, it is not cooperating. The little camera disc is also not reading to this newer laptop, not sure what to do about that, but I was happy to find out the camera cable will connect to this gadget - I DO have a brand new rechargeable battery in the camera and that part is now making the camera work properly. Duhhh, I didn't realize I was supposed to purchase new rechargeable batteries. My camera is a Kodak -- rechargeable batteries were not easy to find. However, my friend Fern directed me to www.batteriesplus.com
, I called the Ft. Collins franchise, and they mailed me what I needed.
Does anyone have suggestions as to why my camera disc won't read on this new laptop? It used to a year ago, when last I tried it. The laptop recognizes it is "there" but I get an "error". Perhaps because the previous battery was dead it damaged something to the disc?
Now, I just need to figure how to wander thru this new interface. It was not as difficult as I had imagined.
I was asked to make a small quilt for an auction. I called it "Gifts" meaning we all have gifts to offer not just the kinds that we wrap up. It's about 38" x 40", and would be artfully positioned in a small antique sled. I quilted winding ribbons all over it first in one thread, then another.
Time was short so I started with a lovely Moda Charm Pack - I have never done that before. What a time saver!
The feathers on the outside border were easy. My friend Jody calls them "fat ladies on a barstool"! LOL
The backing was PERFECT.
Below is my Scrappy Spider Web I've been working on between machine problems. Did ya ever have whole months when NOTHING was working properly? Ok, got that fixed, and improved my stitching issues with Sewers Aid liquid lubricant. What a great improvement THAT made!
The first spider webs were in a creamy tan thread - didn't look quite right, so I changed to a white shiny poly that had some silvery look to it - much better.
I deserve a GOLD STAR after struggling with a variety of geekie issues. I stuck with it, didn't cry, didn't curse and swear, and didn't give up! 8-)))) I am woman, hear me roar!!!!! 8-)))
