It is sort of hard to develop a new routine sometimes. I am finding it tricky to get used to this new blog format. I wrote a blog when I had Periwinkle, and after 713 posts, I had become very used to the system it used. Now, it is like I am starting from scratch again.
I was thinking about how one does things on a computer or tablet as opposed to doing something with physical items. For instance, when we got new fabric delivered at the store, we unpacked it, cut and folded fat quarters, labelled them and put everything on a shelf for display. When I write a blog entry, it is sort of the same, but at a remove. I need to open the program and find my place. I open a new page to write on to, and think of what I want to say. then, I type words, and place them on the page. to add a photo, I need to go to where it is stored and retrieve it, sometimes editing it to make it show more of what I want to communicate. Sometimes I can't find the photo I want to use, or it is on a different device so I have to figure out how to move it over to the device I am using. Putting together the blog post is sort of like putting a display together. I think we have been told so often that doing things on a computer are so quick and easy, that it comes as a surprise to find out that it actually takes a fair bit of time to compile something using words and images.
Right now I am out of Saskatoon for a month, so Nancy, Wendy and Sandy are taking over the studio while I am away. I am going into longarm withdrawal.
While I am here in Savannah, I have a goal! Over the past few weeks, I took many photos of the quilts I had had at the shop. Most of them had been shop samples for kits and fabrics. My goal is to sift through and decide what to do with. them. I think that some I will donate or give away, and some I will put up for sale. It is sort of a long shot to sell a quilt though.
