oh yeah - whatta way to spend a saturday. I spent the entire frustrating day getting some cgi-sorta forms ready to go for NYQuilts! Yeah. I have to say that Adobe GoLive 6 really rocks. Very stable, some nice fixes from 5 beyond the stability issues. Little things that mean a lot like adding a table row above OR below the one you've selected. Doing the forms themselves was really easy. Making them work on tripod stunk out loud. Once I realized the problem it wasn't so hard, but getting to that point was frustrating. Of course, if I did form stuff more than once a year, it would be ever so much easier.

It's ten pm now. I'm going to go sew SOMEthing.

Last night I rummaged around in my "big pieces" pile o' fabric, looking for backing fabrics for the two quilts I'm ready to quilt. (see April 6th entry for other photos of the new quilt and the nine patch.) Years ago fabric used to be 44-45 inches wide. Narrow fabric was 36 inches wide. Now you're lucky if you get 40 inches of width to work from. Long story short, I did find some fabric and only had to piece one of the backs, in a very simple way. Moral of the story - aiming for smaller quilts? get them in under 40" in measurement in one direction so the backs are straightforward.

Yes this is absolutely true. It happens in Apple stores everywhere, based on my own experience:

Wednesday Feature: Crazy Apple Help Desk
"Every Wednesday, the staff at Crazy Apple Rumors Site answers common help questions based on our vast experience with Apple products and our fervent belief that we know more than you do.

Q: My brand new 2002 iMac arrived last week and I've unpacked it and set it up. I have to admit, I'm a little upset. At no time has the iMac mimicked any of my movements, like it does in the ad. I feel that Apple has falsely advertised the features of this product. Am I missing something or should I initiate a class-action law suit?....."

Here's a nice surprise. In today's mail was a small envelope, and inside that envelope was another envelope and inside that -- a check for $75 -- my prize money from the Smoky Mountain Quilt show in Knoxville! whooo hooo! Nothing like a reward to keep you going.

My silly impulse reward? A new lipstick while waiting for my prescription at the drugstore. How girly is that?

there are only a few things that make me want to hang out with some other artists of various sorts. One is a question that bugs me from time to time. Am I totally nuts for sitting there somewhat mesmerized by my own work while I'm in the middle of it? I could stare at it for hours I think. What does this get me? Sometimes I think it gets me the ability to work in a more instinctive way on the next step/phase, but I have no real way of knowing this or not. Anyway, that's something I'd like to know from others.

Today I was off work, having worked on Sunday. Tomorrow, another early day so our inventory manager can have his day off. I did accomplish some things and now I'm heading out to pay bills, return yet another lexar smart media reader etc. Ah the exciting life I lead. heck, I even downloaded a new trial version of Freehand 10!

Totally pooped. Between inventory at work and going in early today and it being a long day and daylight savings confusion.... well, I'm pooped. I measured the new quilts tonight to see about backs. Then I cut out the pieces for the NYQ! raffle quilt blocks. That was pretty daring considering how pooped I am. Me - a rotary cutter, a limited amount of fabric and half a brain. uh huh.

I'm sipping a fine glass of port now and thinking about that nice soft pillow.
