My new baby

No sewing this weekend. Boo hoo! The good news, however, is that Jared put a new computer together for me (finally… my old one was getting really slowwwww!), and it has taken me pretty much all weekend to move my files over, re-install my programs (I hadn’t realized how much quilting software I have!!!), and configure my system.

Naturally, with all new technology there is always a learning curve. The acquisition of a new computer system also involves upgrades: to a new operating system (Windows 7) and the latest version of the different graphic and design software packages I use. Some things are seamless, others are not (videos don’t all run on a 64-bit Windows 7). And I have to get used to a new mindset when it comes to organizing my folders. Yet I am finding that all in all – once I get used to things – this setup is actually easier to use.

I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but to me this baby is beautiful. Isn’t she?

And, of course, I had to set up my desktop to remind me of the “real” baby who takes precedence in my affection. My Jamie is definitely even more beautiful! (-:

Yes, I’ve spent some long hours this weekend setting things up, but I’m pretty much done. Which means I can get right back to work tomorrow morning. Sigh. I’m a happy camper!

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
