It’s been a busy week in Lake ……… sorry about that – got carried away! It HAS been a busy week, but when I try to remember what it was I was so caught up in, I have trouble spotting any one thing that took all my time. Lots of little things, important at the moment, that needed doing. Now all I remember is the time lost.
Some of my busyness was in free-arm quilting two more quilt tops. I’m feeling more comfortable doing it – and have a better control over the machine now, too. Here’s a shot of the third one – of course, the back shows my work.
Some of the time spent was computer related – getting things working correctly again. And that always takes more time that you ever anticipate. My love says I have expectations that are waaaaay too high and that I should just be glad things work when they do! I won’t go into my harangue about computers.
Two more women joined our little troop going to Mali in January! Our merry band of seven should have a grand time with each other, much less our journey. Starting to seriously think about mosquito netting and hand sanitizer and camera supplies.
The camera is the thing I’m concerned about the most. Mine is old enough that they have discontinued making the cards for it and when you can find any they are really expensive. If I can be sure of the ability to upload my pics off the card while at an internet cafe, that would be fine. Otherwise, I’ll need some other means of storing pics – either an expensive chip or maybe another camera (those one-use wonders would work if I bring a lot). Decisions…..

If you opt to look for a new camera, I can highly recommend Sony’s CD Mavica. Instead of a card, the camera records onto a small size CD, which means you can simply insert a new CD disk when the first is full. The disks can be read by any computer without worrying about programs. The camera comes with a small plastic ring adapter into which you insert the small CD to make it regular size to fit the computer’s holder. The camera is incredible for closeups and no slouch about distance shots. One thing that I appreciate is its size. It’s not a small camera. That may/may not be a positive to anyone else, but for me it is. I appreciate its heft and the way it handles in my hands when I’m trying to focus. Just my two cents.
Thanks, Gin, for your input. Nice to have a recommendation to go on.
