There hasn't been any!
I did another row on Mrs PP's quilt yesterday, but mis-measured and fell off the end of the quilt. Oops. So the quilt is off the frame - again, and my stitch ripper and I are about to become best friends - again. Still, I have spent some time today digitizing a free pattern I found on the Urban Elementz site here. This was a panto for hand-guided LA quilting, but I really loved it, so I contacted the designer, who was happy for me to digitize it

so all's well that ends well.

On the computer/printer vs Mr Fixit, so far, let's just say that Mr Fixit is not winning. We have decided to call in a man tomorrow. Actually I have decided to call in a man tomorrow, cos I'm fed up with seeing Mr Fixit wasting his time and getting more and more wound up as time goes on. So I shall be making a phone call tomorrow, and I'll let you all know when it's safe to talk about wireless printers to us again.

Meanwhile today has been an absolutely glorious day. Mrs Nomad appeared with The Professor, The Chatterbox and Archie this afternoon and we sat out on the deck for a couple of hours and made the most of what might well be the last time we can do that this "summer".


  1. Sorry you have to spend time with your seam ripper! I love that quilting design. Hope you get your computer issues worked out!

  2. I'm glad you made the decision to relieve Mr. Fixit and call in the big guns.

    Glad you had a lovely last hurrah of summer.

  3. I like this design, I'll have to check out the site - I don't think I've ever been there. Most of my pantographs come from Willow Leaf Studio.


I love to receive your comments, so please do leave them and wherever possible I will reply to you by email.
