Hello, all, and thanks for the lovely comments on my last post. The sad news is that since I reported its arrival, I’ve found more than a few problems with my iPad, and I fear I’ll need a replacement. Has anyone else had problems with it just opening and closing things at random, without your even touching the screen? Talk about ‘the ghost in the machine’. Not unreasonably, Apple have suggested resetting everything, then installing the apps one by one to see which might be causing the problem. I’m kind of hoping that it misbehaves right away – the thought of installing an app, waiting a day, then installing the next and on and on does not fill me with joy!
But enough of that! On to happier things:
Isn’t he sweet? This is Cyril, destined to be the centrepiece of a cushion, or possibly a mini-quilt, I haven’t decided yet. He was drawn by a colleague of mine who’s leaving this week, so this will be my parting to gift to her. I love embroidery, although I really only do outlines. It’s just so effective!
I also need to decide whether or not to ‘colour in’ between the lines, although I have to say he looks pretty good as he is. Any thoughts?
Incidentally, one of the things I can see my iPad being really useful for is tracing pictures like this to embroider. I have a slightly odd set up at the moment with a glass dining table and a desk lamp on the floor, but getting it straight off the screen at the right height could be a much more cunning plan. How do you guys trace your embroidery?
