Yes, I am here -- at home -- with the tripod!!! I set it up this morning to figure out how it works. I noticed a little screw sticking up at the top of it, and sure 'nuf, my camera screwed right onto it. I stepped in front of one of my quilts to make a little video to see how it would work. It worked okay, I guess, but the video took TWENTY minutes to download to Youtube. Here is the first video:
It is real wiggly when I watch it on this computer. It could be because of the oversized monitor I have. Or I suppose there is the slightest possibility it could be the photographer.
That was it for videos for today. Decided to just shoot some still pics of my Sure-fit Designs duck blouse (or are they geese?) and my darling pink knit blouse with "Glenda sleeves" from her new book. I love them!
And next is the side view showing the notched sleeve and hem. This is a super-simple thing for me to do now, but it was like rocket science when I first did it. Poor Glenda. I'm sure she thought she had a certified nut case on her hands. I would say, "HOW on earth do I do this?" She would say, "It is so simple -- I can't believe you can't do it?" (Not really!) I'm sure she WANTED to say that though. She was very patient and very nice and said as sweetly as one could say it, " Just follow the directions from the pattern you got the sleeve idea from, Dear". Of course, if you watched the videos, you know that is Roses and Holly behind me. It ALMOST makes me want to go back to quilting, but not yet. Not one week before ETA.
