I need a teenage boy to help me figure out my computers! I am struggling with a few issues but I will muddle through it. I need to get a photo editing program for my PC...any suggestions? I really only know about Adobe photoshop but I haven't used it in many years. I need something simple!
Enough tech talk!
Yesterday, Wednesday, I spent the whole day thinking it was Thursday...really! That night, while talking to hubby I realized my mistake so today is like a bonus day...maybe like a snow day!
I hunkered down to finish my Alaska shop hop quilt. Done. I am three for three since my November arrival in Paris. A finished top each month...quite a pace!
This quilt does have a name, "Northern Wilderness."
I'm thinking about how to get a photo of the full quilt...
This was a kit and I cut out everything about four years ago. There are four borders...lots of opportunities to come up with different sizes than the pattern. The blocks with the sashing came out half an inch larger than the pattern dimensions so I only had to trim the first border down a quarter of an inch all around and I was good to go. What a relief! And for some reason, which of course I don't remember, I had cut the final border at 2" instead of 1 1/2" like the directions so in the end my quilt is 1/2" bigger than the pattern.
Way to much talk about math! Once I start the borders I like to keep going all day until I get them done so I don't have to "remember" where I was at later date.
I also finished two more ornaments...I really just had to tack all the components together last night.
Looking at the photo...I am going to go back and stitch some dimension into them...I'll show you what I mean tomorrow.
