This year I decided I was getting one combined present for Mum, Dad, my Sister....and me. It is a QPix Scanner for slides, photos and negatives and oh wow is it a gem. Christmas Day I spent scanning the family slides, some I had never seen and most have not been seen for 40 years or more. Some are a bit mildewed but on the whole they are in good condition and it is a process that is priceless. We now all have digital copies of the photos and can start getting them printed and into albums.
This photo is of me - taken close to 40 years ago, and it is outside our house in the middle of Maroochydore. Of course, it does not look anything like that now. :-( The quality of the scan and the printed pic from that scan is amazing.
Of course, my little buddy has been by my side the whole time - and has destroyed the surface on my design board...grrrrr Fluffy.
At times I have to fight him for the pieces....at the risk of having my arm torn off.
Remember those african blocks I started - I am now joining them into a top - and only have one block left to make. How beautiful are the colours - and the 'photo bomber' in the corner?
Happy sewing everyone - hope you are getting some time to relax and enjoy the rest of the festive season.
Bye for Now
