Fresh Press Saturday

I'm still struggling to post. Mostly I don't understand how to get pictures on here and that seems like it shouldn't be so hard. I'm using my iPad. I'm writing this on the blogger app. I take pictures with my iPhone and iPad and they're all saved in camera, or photostream, actually ON this device. Well, anyway it drives me a bit wacko and keeps me from even trying most days.

It was a very intense week of work from the real job perspective and I didn't get much done in the sewing cave.  But there was some good mail this week so I started the day today with pressing and folding the latest batches of new fabric.

I just love seeing it all freshly pressed!  But there is no more room in my FQ/half yard shelves. I need to sew more! And perhaps buy less (but don't tell the captain, he already thinks that!).

I've enjoyed reading about others finishes and lists of makes for the year and discussions of what will be on the list for next year.  I haven't gotten to that yet, but I am going to Sew South in March, and joined the Lucky Stars BOM hosted by Elizabeth at Don't Call Me Betsy.  I'm participating in my first ever swap, the Low Volume Charm Swap hosted by Lori at Lori H. Designs, and I even have my fabric, though I'm kind of nervous to cut it - what if I biff it?  I'll do it tomorrow anyway.  I think I joined something else, but I can't remember what it was.  I do have at least twelve lifetimes worth of projects on my "I want to make THIS" list.  I intend to make a real list and will strive to participate in linkys.

Happy Saturday!



  1. Holli, you should consider joining flickr, there are a lot of quilting things there. I use iphoto which connects really easy and downloads my pictures to flickr. Then I can grab the html from the flickr picture and use that in blogger for the blog post. One big advantage is that the pictures are not actually loaded into the blog post just a link, so you don't have to figure out how to load them into blogger. Email me if you want more info.

  2. great fabrics. love all those browns.

  3. Hi Hollie. With the blogger ap you need to go to the bottom of the post you are typing and there is a little icon of a picture and a camera. The picture will take you to your photo stream and you can select photos you have saved. I haven't worked out how to move them around yet, they will post at the bottom of your writing, but it does get them up.
