Monday It took me two full afternoons to read through my list of Ragmates blogs. This is not because I was so far behind. Or because Ragmates are wordy writers–some post very infrequently and the daily posters don’t usually ramble on as I usually do. No. It’s because they all seem to stir my imagination and/or curiosity. I started reading these blogs through Spirit Cloth . . . Tuesday Obviously, this is what I did today. Wednesday Today I was…

Another Week Went Poof!

Another Week Went Poof!

I’m a homebody. I have ADD. I’ve done nothing this week because I’ve had appointments and have been pulled away from my routine (such as it is) by those, and other things, every day. My introverted homebody-ness borders on being a hermit. I’m able to go for a long time with no more outside contact than occasional texting. I’m not really sure how long, and it probably varies because I do like and need human contact sometimes, but I get…

Plodding Along

Plodding Along

Or trudging. The meanings are very close. It’s winter. I may not have the kind of deep snow I grew up with in winter, but mentally for me, it’s still the same. Most of my plodding the past couple of weeks has been in getting the machine embroidery files cleaned up. I get so distracted, though. It’s rather tedious work, but I need to see the file, so I have to use large (sometimes extra large) icon mode. That’s a…

Weird Problems

Weird Problems

If only these were the worst problems people had. Since sometime in the summer or fall of 2020 airynothing.net* has been giving me problems with images. I’ve been back and forth with the web hosts about it. They are working on it, but with covid, everything goes more slowly. Today I wanted to upload an image to show what I’ve been doing, but since it’s a huge animated gif, I knew I couldn’t upload it directly to wp. I went…

Flowers

Flowers

A large part of the last two weeks has been spent on filing. Oh so FUN! Actually, I don’t mind and I think I’m finally getting the machine embroidery files organized. Although I keep finding unzipped files and duplicate–lately in folders I thought I’d completed. Being a free design junkie and having gone crazy when I first got my embroidery machine, I have way more designs than I’ll ever get to. It’s taking forever and while I don’t mind, it…

Lost Again

Lost Again

If I don’t fall into the Black Hole of Facebook, something else manages to distract me. Today it was making the new header to match the new background. Last night (and a bit this morning) it was playing on GIMP. I guess that’s me. However, it was fun to make. The sea is many layers of a background that started as a geometric flower or star. I used a bunch of G’Mic filters to get the waves. Used another one…

Windows Journal

Windows Journal

Not the most exciting post. After working in my garden planting and transplanting, I thought I’d check out the Journal that comes with Windows 10. I read it had been disabled in some versions of Windows 10, but I still have it. I’m thinking it might be easier than opening Notepad or WordPad every time I want to make a note. I have sticky notes, but they’re really a pain because they’re either all opened or all closed. Besides, all…
