Linda Franz, the one who invented Inklingo, mentioned that she uses a Canon printer. So I went and bought a $50 Canon. That worked beautifully. I sent a lot of emails to Linda during my trials and tribulation. She was great about solving things for me.
Printed my fabrics, cut my pieces and started piecing. Well, I found out I need to be a more careful rotary cutter to take full advantage of her method. I need to use reader glasses to make sure I'm lined up. But the pieces I cut correctly went together well.
Then we went away to Florida, so had to wait until we returned to work on the piecing. Then the computer was giving me fits--would not communicate to printer no matter what I did. So frustrating because my husband came and talked to it, and it obeyed! But at least I can start printing again. I need to check how many more sheets I need to print to catch up.
Bonnie Hunter's designs are fantastic! I just LOVE her work. So much so that I ordered all of her books. They came today, so I'm having a Bonnie-fest. Excited to be trying some of her other patterns. She is a scrap quilt queen. What a good idea, to use up some of my stash.
Woo Hoo! Excited to get her books!
I made a bunch of things for Christmas last month. I made fabric boxes, two sizes, and stars to hang on the tree.
The little boxes have been especially popular. Isn't it nice to give something you made yourself?
Every Christmas I make my grand daughters some ornaments for their tree. When they eventually move out of Mom's house, they will have a very good start on their own trees. And they'll have something Grandma made just for them--forever!
