Thursday already! I finished the quilting on the first side/edge of the new quilt and will start the other side tonight. Looks like I'll have to wind another few bobbins, since I'm working on the last of the first nine I'd wound. And yes, I've been doing some unstitching here and there. I'll go back tonight and see if there are any problem areas that I can find.Tuesday, July 23, 2002
Huge rain storm today, which dropped the temperature a bit. It also took out some trees and washed away some shoulders from what I could see on the way home. Obviously the power has been off here at home and has blipped once since I got here. Thank goodness for batteries!
Thanks BornFamous for this great quote:If I could do it, I'd do no writing at all here. It would be photographs; the rest would be fragments of cloth, bits of cotton, lumps of earth, records of speech, pieces of wood and iron, phials or odors, plates of food. -- James AgeeOn a different note, I was trying to do some quilting late tonight and finally I thought - this is one of the goofiest things ever, trying to quilt on a night when it has be 80+F and it's 11 PM eastern time. Go to bed. Of course I didn't do that exactly. I came down here and played on the computer awhile.
I am live and in person. The clean install and the moving of files has gone VERY well and it fixed my firewire port problem. So yeah! I'm back in business and I'm busily moving all my files either onto the clean and tidy HD, nice clean blank CDs or into the welcoming trash.Sunday, July 21, 2002
I was computer-less yesterday. I decided to go ahead and do a clean install of the operating system in hopes of fixing a hardware issue I've been having. I had an offer of help for this that I couldn't pass up. so right now I'm typing on Ron's G4. I'll be back on my own machine later today after getting all my own stuff (and there's lots of it!) back on the machine and in working order again. Should be exciting! If the hardware problem is resolved I'll be backing up a lot of files and getting them off the hard drive for good, but for now they're vacationing on the G4.
