Internet, Tools, Quilting

First let me say that if any of you received an email from darcelona3@aol.com regarding a link taking you to a weight loss page, it wasn’t me. I purchased a new computer from Best Buy and while they had the computer to transfer data over, someone hacked my account. I have had to change the password about 7 times so hopefully, you won’t receive any more.

Tools – I have to say that I have become a scissor junkie. I start to salivate at a Kai display or a Gingher or Bohn. Since retiring from the Fire Authority, I have been rearranging and organizing my sewing room. Found numerous packets of needles – everything from quilting, crewel, tapestry, to multiple packets. But needles go dull so that is an absolute need. I also found about 10 pairs of scissors. Everything from embroidery, 6″, 8″ size and even pinking shears. Plain handles to floral. Just gotta have them.

There was a vendor at Road to California this year that sold wood handled seam rippers, stillettos (not shoes, sigh), hair picks and thimbles. Their work is so beautiful that I bought a stiletto and a seam ripper. Then I told them that I had seen a blurb on their product in one of Mark Lipinski’s magazines. To date, I had already purchased knitting needles, a thimble and a seam ripper/stiletto set. Check out Bella Cotton in Esty – she carries some beautiful items.

Quilt shows- big or small, please support them. I attend the Orange County Quilt Guild’s show in Anaheim last week and the quilts were beautiful. Many members participated and they had some great vendors. There was one vendor that had a plethora of hand crank sewing machines. Almost bought one but had to stop myself. I had purchased a hand crank, Lady Washington machine years ago just in case we lose power and I just have to finish up a seam.

That’s all for now. The new computer has been letting pop-ups appear and tells me that my browser, Media, Flash Drive, etc are all out of date and need to be updated. Why? Everything should have been done before I picked this up. Oh well, back to Best Buy. The nice thing is since retirement, I can go and be there first thing in the morning to get answers.

Thanks for reading.
