youtubes....

Tracey and I and our 'webguy' have been discussing putting you tube videos on her site to demonstrate 'in movie style' how to use her rulers for longarm machine quilting. I have stumbled upon a couple of wonderful videos Patsy Thompson is trying out as a tool for her students. She didnt think the quality was great but I think they are wonderful. If you let the whole clip run first - it may break up a bit depending on your download speed, then go back and play it again, the second time it will play perfectly. She has DVD's available, I think I will have to search for them. mmmmm I may have to think about doing some of these, do you think it would be useful??
on another note, it has been a beautiful sunny day in Hobart today (I didnt say warm) so after a nice drive out to Richmond to the Christmas in July craft fair, lunch at the Brighton Bakery and them home to plant my winter vegie crop, whilst the sun was still shining I took my camera for a walk at the Cornelian Bay Cemetery. A feast of design ideas waiting there. Whilst I always get a little emotional I love looking at the headstones and trying to imagine the stories behind the people here particularly in Hobart where we have so much history.
here are some pics I took of iron lace 'tops', just think of the quilt ideas....
hugs, Helen
