Yay, after a power outage last night I was worried the computer would be problematic. Turned it on and it came straight up so that’s a win. Something in the house seems to throw our trip switch sometimes which is a very annoying fault. Unlikely even a very good electrician is going to catch it unless it becomes a lot more regular. So for now we live with it and hope the computers behave. Don’t worry it won’t upset the longarm, I have that on a UPS. Yes that does say a lot about my priorities The computer will probably cope but I do not want the longarm stopping suddenly while I am working, that could be a disaster.
Last week we found a lot more options that I ever imagined for house and home. I can’t wait to see where this weeks takes us. For me this is still more important than the actual making. Having a design problem to ponder is great for keeping my brain busy and the discussion sessions always take me routes I don’t expect. So this week we will be considering,
Letters and text
Oooh another fun one. It reminds me of one of the things that came up in Celtic week, Ogham. Oh or the squares week when I suggested morse code. Oh yes this can be a lot of fun. Wonder how brave people will be with this. Let’s see how much space we are filling.
Add 8″ to two opposite sides of your quilt.
Um, well that is a bit more than I expected but I guess that really does open up the options. I was hoping for maybe 4″ on one side. I guess it doesn’t all have to be text, or maybe it is time to fit a whole story onto a quilt.
