Slow innernets = More sewing :o)

My DH recently bought an Ipod touch. This is an amazing little gadget that can connect up to the innernets and keep him amused for hours. However. The stuff he’s been playing on has taken up buckets of downloads and so now we’re on ‘go slow’ … dial up speed, and it’s taking ages for the simplest thing to be done on the ‘puter any more he he he. So, for the next 10 days I’m guessing there will be a lot more stitching than ‘putering going on in this house lol.

Here’s what I’ve been up to these past few days – another Sewing Caddy set!!! This one is in “Mill House Inn” by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda – July 2010 081Oh I just LOVE those fabrics :o) …. July 2010 082 And I’ve also been making a store sample of my “Slice ‘n’ Dice” quilt in the GAWJUS “Martinique” range by 3 Sisters for Moda – July 2010 096Isn’t it just divine!!??! I’m quilting the blocks at the moment (it’s quilt-as-you-go) - so I’ll show you more when it’s looking more like a quilt lol.

Have a great weekend …. I’ll be spending most of mine with my Janome he he he.

Those ipods and iphones are nifty devices aren't they. If you have an ABN enquire about combining your phone and internet on a business plan, data is cheaper.
