Back to Sewing!
Slowly, slowly, I'm making my way back to the sewing room after the three strikes of the computer crashing, our Thanksgiving trip to Colorado, and my mother's heart attack and subsequent surgery. I have finished my Advent Calendar, but sadly, my granddaughter isn't around to enjoy it. So it's hanging on a post in the upstairs hallway for the time being. Someday, I hope and pray, I'll have enough grandchildren around to actually use it.
I'm also working on the Ladybug Apron, and hope to get it cut out and maybe start sewing on it tomorrow.
Another project is to install the new Adobe Photoshop Elements on the new computer. We found that we were using version 6, and decided to purchase the latest, version 10. This was true for almost all of our software. Since our old computer was five years old, virtually all of our software was positively ancient. It will take some time to get up to speed on all the new versions. One thing I really like about it is the Apple Magic Trackpad. It's four inches square, angled nicely and you can tap anywhere on it. It's pretty slick.
Off to the cutting table! Have a great week!
