Technology ~ Love It, Hate It!!!

Hello my dear friends....

When last I left you, I was headed out of town to Niagara Falls for a short little getaway with DH.  On the trip, I took my iPad, intending to blog along the way.  I wasn't sure about the availability of Wi-Fi connections, so I wasn't sure I could blog.  I had plenty of Wi-Fi connections, and took some great photos, but when I tried blogging, nothing happened.  The blogger app said I was successful, but the post never made it.  So...I waited until I got home, and tried again today to blog using my iPad....same exact thing.  Frustrated, I tried putting the photos from the blog onto my computer, and for some reason, my computer isn't downloading anything today.  Ggrrr.

I wanted to give you an update so you wouldn't think I fell into the falls and was on my way to Lake Ontario!  I'm here...home....saying pretty words in my head to my computer....frustrated.  So...while I get the kinks worked out....I have a question to ask of you.

I've designed the next Pocket Patchwork Sewalong project.  It will be a little quilt using up loads of scraps.  No kit this time as it is intended to use up small leftover scraps.  It will post once a week over 5 weeks.  I get lots of emails asking when the next sewalong will be, and I'm not sure what you'd like to do....so....I've posted a poll on the blog.  Look for it at the top of the right column.  Please vote as I'd sure like to know what you'd like to do!


 
On another note....exciting news....Lynne Hagmeier's new book, Loose Change is hot off the press and available right now!!  It is full of new designs using her easy piecing Layered Patchwork technique.  Lynne's Layered Patchwork technique takes full advantage of all of the different Moda Pre-cuts for very clever and inventive quilts you can make in no time.  The book fully describes the technique, and is loaded with great instructions and lots of pictures.  Click here to read more about Lynne's book and see several Loose Change quilts .  Click here to order a copy for yourself, and  while you're at it.....how about one for a quilt loving friend!  Christmas is right around the corner, and this would be a terrific gift!
 
 
Well...that's all for now.  I'm calling the Geek Squad....Toodles....Pam
