Quilt camp is so near and yet so far. It's about 45 miles, but takes at least an hour and a half to traverse down one mountain and up another. I wasn't the latest arrival, but I sure wasn't the first.
Just a brief taste as I sit in the sewing room alone at 1:15 a.m., everyone else having gone to bed.
By the time I arrived, the snack table was already laden with, well, snacks.
This is my tidy work space. I carried my French fabrics acquired several years ago in Aix-en-Provence in this little French tote bag I acquired in Saint Jean de Luz this past spring. (Have I mentioned that I like traveling to France?)
This is the part of my work space where the work is going on. I will be using the tile block technique learned in the workshop last Monday, for this French fabric. I still want to catch you up on that workshop in the near future.
Meanwhile, I've installed Internet Explorer 9 on this laptop, giving it another chance to see how it works with Blogger software after having a rather poor experience using it on a netbook earlier this year and reverting to IE 8. I have to say there's no laptop like a good old IBM ThinkPad laptop for pure tactile experience, and neither this laptop nor my netbook are IBM ThinkPads, so blogging in laptop does not please me in any case. Maybe IE 9 plays differently with a desktop computer than it does on these little guys, which has not been a particularly fun experience. I'd buy another ThinkPad but those Lenovo versions don't look the same (stupid touch pads!) and I can't lift anything but the netbook into the overhead compartment when traveling sardine class!
Good night/morning, and hope I'll see you soon.
