Wanted: Seattle Quickbooks for Mac expert willing to trade for fabric or instruction!
I feel like I’m spinning my wheels here. I finally stepped up to getting Quickbooks. This led to upgrading my operating system which caused Word and other programs to be incompatible. It sadly doesn’t stop there…I seem to have something not quite right with my systems preferences, so my folders and documents won’t open and to boot, everything I created on Friday doesn’t exist. Insert deep breath here and acknowledge that Rome wasn’t build in a day. I wish I wasn’t such a neophyte when it comes to computers, but I’ve come a long way.
The drag is, I haven’t had an ounce of time to sew. The good news is classes are going well. I’m in catch-up mode to show you all what we’ve been doing since I myself have nothing.
Last weekend at Make*Do*Mend Studio we covered what you can do with the Double Trouble Block. It was fun to have the class filled with students from other classes plus a newbie.
A full class in itself is the best teaching tool because you have multiple fabric combinations that you didn’t pick out that create different looks.
Lights, darks, prints and solids all look different when laid out. The design layout that the students are drawn to give you more examples of what the block can do.
Petrina had completely revamped her design once she got home.
Allison changed up her fabrics last minute so she could include them all.
Noelle went all solids and for some reason I’m lacking a photo.
It was convenient to have Drygoods Designs right next door when the design needed something added.
And what’s a trip to a fabric shop without a purchase? Check out these beauties. I’m in love with this Cloud 9 and that Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet, well I want it in every color. On the bottom there, flannel! Already have a quilt that this will back.
Wish me luck with Quickbooks!
