I was sitting at the kitchen table last night enjoying a leisurely dinner by myself. M bursts through the front door - "where's the video camera? I read your blog! Where is it?" I guess if I want to keep something quiet - I don't announce it on my blog!!
The package was downstairs and so she ran down to get it. I asked her to bring my digital camera as well. This is what happened................
|I hear her snapping pictures on the way up the stairs - NO - the battery is almost dead!|
|Last picture before the battery died. They just think M is a big goof!!!!|
And this is what happened next..........
|Notice - she still has her coat and scarf on!!!!!|
|Notice the camera is ALSO a projector!!!! Up to 100" screen it will project on. Is that wild or what!!!!|
|The new digital camcorder|
|Who can be bothered to read the manual - let's just charge this thing up! (I had to read the manual because she couldn't figure it out. There is one little secret wire hidden on the camera - she missed that!!!)|
There was just enough power to set all the data in the camera and she took a five minute video of the dogs and the two of us making a whole of noise!!!! Then the camera died so we haven't had a chance to watch it yet. Have to try out that projector feature!!!! I hope to use the camera to take some video of various sewing techniques. It is very hard to show them with still pictures.
While we were only a few for embroidery, we more than made up with lots of noise!!! The inspiration that flowed out of that session was unbelievable. I have so many new ideas - ACK!!!!!!!!!! Anyway - it was awesome and I love Wednesday mornings. I did manage to get one more block done. That makes three of the four curvy snowflakes - DONE. One more to go, but I have to retrace the pattern first.
|I used a permanent pen and it was a bit leaky when I first opened it up!!!! Oh well - not such a big deal to retrace that.|
However I also need to get those four bobbins through the sewing machine by this afternoon. I have worked my way through THREE of the four. I got this message last night - YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|LOW BOBBIN ALERT|
|The two bottom rows are together|
|See - the other two quilts are gone!!!!|
I think there was one spot where I saw two of the same fabrics together. Really???? Not sure if that was during the sewing process or the layout process. However - I thought about the recipients of these quilts and they wouldn't care so I didn't either!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a couple more quilts (blocks are together) that I can throw on the wall later today to get rid of that bobbin. I love sewing right beside the design wall. I used to have my sewing machine in that corner.
I see I have a bunch of e-mails to take care of this morning and a lot more sewing today and I have to hit the long arm as well.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!
