Computers

I don't know how I would live without a computer now, but they are the most frustrating things. Mine has been at the computer fix it shop again this week as it wouldn't turn on again. They can't find anything wrong with it. Apparently is just doesn't like the cold and won't turn on until the day has warmed up. Not much good down here in winter. It was 1 degree yesterday morning so I turned it on last night and now I don't want to turn it off. Not much good for the carbon footprint. Think I might have to really save for that laptop I have been dreaming of.
On the other hand when they aren't being frustrating and I haven't been swearing at it I have been playing with my new toy - a Wacom Bamboo. Definitely makes pattern writing a much more pleasant experience.

I am still sewing for the market next week. A poor little pile of toys waiting to be stuffed.

Oh yes your little critters will be much happier with stuffing. My daughter is in the market for a Wacom for her design studies. She's just starting her research.

You might have to make your computer a little quilt to warm itself up in the morning. Those little animals look very cute unstuffed.

I love that Wacom bamboo. I have an old wacom dinosaur that does the trick but I'm sure an updated version would be really great, especially since I can't find my dinosaur. It's probably still packed in a box...somewhere.
