....but it's still news to me !
Oklahoma got plastered again, and we here, southwest of Nashville, are finishing up with about 2 1/2 inches. Wow, I love to watch it snow ! I sat down at my sewing machine and was able to look up through the windows above it and get my heart's fill !
And........I finished this little top.........unless I decide to border it, which I HIGHLY doubt. It is what it is. I don't guess I"ll truly name it until I've quilted and finished it. I am now reminded of leaves lying on a swimming pool or some other water.
On the techy side, I had two problems solved today.
My digital camera has been making me format the memory card after EVERY set of photos I take, and I suspected that it was more a problem with old batteries than with the card. I use rechargeable AA's and I've had them for atleast 4 years, maybe 5. I bought new ones today, and sure enough, no more problem with the card ! Yay, praise the LORD !
And I had a live online chat with my cable company because my phone was out YET AGAIN. I learned that power surges cause you to need to reset the modem by unplugging it and plugging it back in. Could I not have been told this one of the 6 or so times I've had this complaint before? Hmmmmm.......well, anyway, atleast it's working again and it was an easy at-home solution.
By the way, since Connecting Threads sent me a replacement set of strips, I am impressed with their customer service if not their quality control. So I want to mention that if anyone is interested in making a zigzag quilt like mine with solids, the sampler set of strips are on sale again, 40% off this time, making them $3.98 for a set of 24 2 1/2 inch strips, and it takes two sets to make a top like mine.
Scroll down the page a bit for the fabric samplers. I used the cool solids sampler, but am thinking that the light solids would make an awesome one.
