The PC has been complaining lately and thrown a couple of hissy fits. Last week it totally refused to go past the initial screen on switch on and after several hours I managed to convince it to fully start up. Having totally lost everything on computers a couple of times before we decided to go for a replacement while the old one was still alive and kicking. The migration over, a nice easy process all done without any hassle, took a mere 26 hours. ! They then don't tell you where to find all your old, migrated stuff. And then when you restart there it all is, in it's own little hidey hole totally unconnected with anything you've already managed to flounder your way around. A search online eventually tells you how to 'share' stuff, but do make sure you're in the right user to start with, then you can open and delete stuff. No thanks, I'll work with two of me for a little while until I'm sure I know who/where/what I am.
Now it's just the screaming and hair pulling part of finding that the Mac is totally the wrong way around and nothing is ever simple.
I have some photos to show you but it has taken me nearly two hours to open them, view them, edit them and compress them on this computer, a two minute job on the PC. Yes the air is a little blue and I can feel fresh ulcers growing as I try and gather this new information by using menus that pop up and down and disappear at will and all the wrong wording. (Send to Trash instead of just Delete?? Really???)
So, without further ado, here is a little hanging I made trying out the trapunto technique shown by Michèle-Renée HERE.

I've wanted to do a white piece for some time. However I think it could be my last! It was a nightmare keeping it clean!
The colour triangles are from my full collection of Oakshot fabrics. Yes I opened the box and used some!! It was also the first time I had used my soluble thread that has been sitting in the drawer for years!!
I thought it was sort of reminiscent of an unfurling fern frond. John calls it the spine.
I have also chopped, bonded and layered a few of these.
But perhaps more about them another time.
For now I have spent far, far too long on this computer trying to work things out and before I really do something to it I will regret, I'm going to play elsewhere!
Have a great Sunday.
