You know me, I can get quite dramatic when I get into something. My camera was taking eons to upload pictures to the computer. When I had one or five, it was easy enough to screw around with it for an hour or so. Then I went to Las Vegas.
My sin was taking 313 pictures. It took me 27 hours to download those pictures to the computer. I had to restart multiple times. I was so frustrated.
So I contacted Sony today. Chat is the feature they call it. Chat I did. First Derek, then Candice, than Brianna, then Bianca, then Kimberly, then Brianna again. We kept getting disconnected. After 5 hours I don't think anything changed.
But maybe it did. I began to work on a wall hanging I was testing for Judy at Mo and Mike Designs. Bonsai. I cut out a thousand little bamboo leaves and glued them down and took a picture. It uploaded rather quickly with only two tries. An improvement.
But this is what I am willing to bet you have never done before:
When I was ironing on my bamboo leaves, I knocked the iron off the ironing board and into the trash can. It adhered to a plastic bag full of wool yarn pieces I had decided I no longer needed to keep. See, I do throw some things away. Of course there was also a plastic bag like you get at the grocery store in there as well and it immediately melded itself with the iron as well.
I got the iron out of the trash as fast as I could. But plastic is faster. So it was a globby mess.
I cursed not so silently and woke up the sleeping dog in the window seat. What to do? I had a piece of discarded fabric, so I pulled that out of the trash can, ran the iron over it, and what do you know? All that globby plastic mess came right off! Must be my lucky day!
I am so happy about that I am linking up with Off The Wall Friday (on Sunday) and telling you to go there and see all the wonderful pieces people are working on!
