An update to the recent post about having to get a new computer. When I went to pick it up after the data transfer, I saw my documents there. All the various folders for the last few years…..but they are gone now! They went missing after the guy installed Office. He’d had some troubles doing that and I have no clue what happened.
Fortunately they still have my hard drives but this means that I have to unplug everything, take the computer back in and then hook it all back up again.
And my photo editor is gone. I used Picasa and I could use it in my sleep and a good bit of time has been spent exploring the various editors out there at the moment. Some have similar features to Picasa but lack others …for instance I tried out at least four before finding one that straightens photos. Since the laundry line ( aka known as my design wall ) sags, I’ve gotten used to simply clicking on the “Straighten” feature in Picasa. Well when you change computers all downloaded programs from years ago, such as Picasa, are gone.
I did manage to finish up the last two sailboats on the final border of the baby quilt. It morphed in to more of a crib size or child sized lap quilt, measuring 43 x 57.
This was a spur-of-moment project and I worked on it for the last few weeks.
It is now a quilt sandwich, pin basted and ready for quilting :) I just made it up as I went along and had fun with it.
