Janet - glad the AVG info came in handy. Sorry you missed the Eye but, as you say, it’s a great excuse to go back. Will look into Ccleaner but I don’t think I’ve had time to get this machine dirty yet.
Pascale - the Janome needles are much stronger than the Pfaff, I don’t think the machines are the same but I don’t know the Pfaff embellisher that well. I love my old Pfaff sewing machine - the 7570 and still use it for free machining, even though I have newer and posher machines.
I do hope that you are soon well enough to play with pre-felts, Gilby. They are especially good with soft woolly fibres.
I have been AWOL for the last couple of days as I had a nasty run-in with the dentist. Some of you may remember that this saga has been running for a while.
I was supposed to have a tooth crowned but it was such a long time between the tooth cracking and the coronation that a lot more bits fell off it. I really thought he would just take it out and I think that, at the half way stage, we both wished he had. Apart from the fact that it was right at the back, and difficult to get at, the drill started playing up. I’d just been telling him about all my recent equipment failures so he blamed me.Anyway it is half done and does feel a little better today.
I have set myself a new challenge. During the recent cupboard cleaning I filled a box with an assortment of half stitched textiles. Here are some of them.
I have given myself two months to make them into something or I have to throw them out. It would have been one month but this is the busy month for WoW and Quiltwow.
I have assembled three sets that might work together. Here’s the most likely one. A tissue on felt background, a heavily machined icon face and a border that I made for Val’s edges and finished book.
I have an idea for this combination, too. It is painted metal shim and a computer print on brown paper with black Mistee fuse ironed on top.
This one may be a real challenge. Another icon on shim, lightly stitched to brown paper and a strange mixture of puff paint and stitch. Can’t think how this is going to work.
I’ll keep you posted on all these.
For my New Year’s resolution I have vowed to tick off one thing a month from my ‘been meaning to do it for ages’ list. So far we have achieved two - one was the Wi Fi thing, and now, finally, (roll of drums) I have ordered my groceries on-line from Tesco. It worked and they arrived. Now all I have to do is to pop into Tesco for all the things I forgot to put on the list.
