Bits and Pieces

Slowly, slowly I'm figuring out how to have the laptop and the camera communicate with each other. Not that it's really hard, but I'm actually having a hard time figuring Picasa out. It's just a 'new program' thing - I'm sure I'll get comfortable with it eventually.

So, here is my progress to date on the Back Home Again quilt. I've cut six blocks ready for stitching, and they're in the baggies on the left there. I'll take them to the Melbourne Cup stitching day tomorrow. My precious baby featherweight can come out for the day with me. And the block is one I cut out and stitched this afternoon. It's called Coronation Star. I am in love with these fabrics, and can't wait to cut into more of the fat quarters.

This is a 'just because' picture. I found it while scrolling thru the camera files. It's Amy and Camo in Legoland. A girl just doesn't see scenes like this in Australia.

Last of all - a quick link. Are there any Southern Cross Quilters out there reading this? Ones that are attending the retreat in Adelaide? My table runner is one of the projects listed on the workshops page - so be sure to check it out :-)

I just pop my memory cards out of the camera and into the computer and I'm just really starting to use Picasa, I can do a lot more than I thought with it but I'm picking it up piece by piece.

I agree that the fabrics in the Back Home again kit are beautiful - have fun working on it.

Such a fun picture of Legoland. You don't see that in Canada either :))

Your table runner looks lovely, but I will be eating chocolate and gossiping with Lissa and others while workshops are on. Not doing any workshops this time.
