The GPS navigator for the car only needs to be actually put into the car, and there are diagrams with arrows so how hard can it be? then I simply find a satellite signal......
And a friend heard me complain that I can no longer play the music on my iPhone in the car because the tape player - yes, the car is that old! - is broken so he offered me a spare Jabra cruiser which doubles as a hands free; it will make a match pair with the GPS device..
Then I just had to buy a new camera; my old one has such a small screen it is difficult to compose photos and I saw this amazing Lumix with a huge touch screen - and it has an Intelligent Auto Mode - it looked so easy in the store but I think I need to print out the full instructions, make myself a cup of tea, and take things slowly.........
We can go back to an earlier time and enjoy looking at simpler things.
I have some more pictures of the tools I bought at the A&C Fair, a little wooden tube with needles in, a scissor sharpener - but I have my doubts about its efficiency - bottom left is a lovely little oil can and the odd shaped tool next to it is a needle threader!
Those early swaps were all Half square triangles; make twenty say and swap with a friend, or group of friends and prepared to be amazed at the different ways they were made up. You know, why didn't I think of that? on a par with everyone else having nicer fabric than you in the class!!
Here is another quilt with Ikat fabric - when I lived in Whitby I quilted with some friends and we regularly issued ourselves a challenge, use this or that fabric and make this or that block etc. This time it was the Contrary Wife block and you could use only three fabrics in each block and one had to be a plaid. If you click on the picture you can see it slightly larger and it is easier to make out the pattern.
This evening will be more hand quilting while I catch up on watching recorded programmes then an early night as I am feeling much better so I shall be off to the prison in the morning for more quilting!
Good talking with you, keep warm out there!
June - shall have to see about getting a proper signature....... more technology!
