Both of my computers spent the weekend in the shop again. This is really getting old. The laptop only had photos prior to 2009 and no calendar entries prior to June since I had it cleaned for spyware. They were able to transfer all of the photos but the calendar information is gone. The old MacMini is the one that I mostly use for photos as it has an older version of Photoshop that I am more comfortable using, but Friday I discovered that it is no longer able to burn CDs. !!! This is a problem since this is mostly required for entering shows these days and I burn a lot of CDs so I took that one in to be fixed. Unfortunately they were not able to fix it. So now I have two choices. Transfer manipulated photos to the laptop to burn CDs or learn to deal with the Photoshop version that is on the laptop that I don’t like. The MacMini is too old to get an external CD burner for, but it does have calendar information prior to June.
The new fabric that I ordered for the landscape background doesn’t work so I am going to have to suck it up and deal with what I have. I did re-do the fawn’s face a couple of times til I think it looks better now.
In the meantime I have been sorting old fabric, weeding out those prints and traditional fabrics that I will never be able to work into what I do now. Here is a shot of the progress so far.
And here is the rejected fabric, which is all wonderful fabric, just not the type that I use anymore. I am not even half way through and that is a lot of fabric to get rid of! Hard to believe it was on the shelves, really packed in!
I’m still in the process of sorting the blues.
