I hate having to do things differently - doesn't really matter what the subject is, but I don't like clicking on new buttons, after all, what will they do?? As a consequence, I follow the same old pattern to do things and it is usually because the tried and tested doesn't work for some reason, that I attempt new technology.
What I am getting at, is that I am now uploading my photos dirrectly into Picasso - thanks Rona - and had to click on lots of buttons that I didn't know what was going to happen, and viola - I have photos!! This has taken up the better part of my weekend - and I must also thank Katney who answered my Blogger help question and is currently trying to work out what the heck was going on. She is BTW a fellow quilter - aren't we just a great wonderful bunch of people??
Now - back to the projects:
I purchased an online download of a workshop by "The Rebel Quilter" - which is lots of fun and inspired a "just have to have a play with this" moment. Basically you freeform cut fabric with fusible on the back and fuse onto a felt backing. Freemotion quilt to your hearts content and add any embelishments then follow her steps to complete your abstract piece - without batting or binding. Great Fun!
|I have started fusing, need to decide if I want to add more, and|
then quilt with black thread.

Then yesterday I had a good old clean at home, so I can now see most of my bench in the kitchen and our floor is clean. Whew! What a mission. We had a lovely day most of the day and jobs got done outside too, we have let the chickens start roaming while the vege garden is in such a state - nothing really that they can destroy and they are enjoying all the bugs and new adventures outside "the pen".
Today it was Dylan's turn to have a surprise - as we had bought more tickets to Walking with the Dinosaurs for him as well - after all, it is a 7yr old boys dream. So hubby is off again on the 3 hour drive to Auckland to see them again. Aren't dad's just neat?
So today, I have spent an enormous amount of time on this blogger thing - and folded about half a basket of washing. Nadia is still in her jamies - we've just had lunch - and it has once again started raining. Must be winter.
I'm sure I have much more to share - but after all this hoohaa - I can't remember it all. But we are still all alive and well - and I just need to get a bit more housework done to enable me to return to my normal crafting self. (Did I really just say that...)
