I started writing this three days ago, to remind you about the end of the special low intro price on the new LeMoyne Star 8 inch shape collection.
There has been a happy distraction (more below), so—good news—Monkey has extended the deadline until tomorrow night (Saturday) at midnight. Only $20.
These are just a few of the 16 inch blocks you can make with the shapes in the new LeMoyne Star 8 inch shape collection . . .
. . . in addition to Lucky Stars (Millefiori Quilts 3).
As usual, you do not need papers or acrylic templates or special rulers when you print the shapes on fabric or freezer paper with Inklingo.
Also, as I mentioned in 5th LIVE Inklingo Video on Facebook, there is no “squaring up” at the end.
The stars on the chair in the photo were made by machine with the Diamond Triangle Square shape collection. It’s FREE ($20 value).
There is a short VIDEO on the Welcome to Inklingo page on the website to help you start printing. I always recommend starting with the free shape collection because it includes the first chapter of The Inklingo Handbook (pages H5 – H48) too.
Also, in the 5th LIVE Inklingo Video on Facebook, I shared piecing and pressing instructions .
LIVE on Facebook has been popular so . . .
. . . I braved the snow (and yucky slush in the parking lots) to get out in the real world to get help face-to-face from the pros.
FOCUSING ON THE GOOD NEWS
There were two big issues that were driving me crazy: camera focus and my focus—showing the wrong camera or screen while I was demonstrating.
I am not a geeky person. Almost everything I know about technology I learned from Google but I needed to take a deeper dive into figuring out the best way to do the LIVE videos, so I got help and met some great people.
This is just a small part of it.
There are even more empty boxes and packaging all over the living room (my office) because I have new equipment, new cameras, new converters, new HDMI and SDI cables—don’t ask, I don’t know either—and a new computer arrangement, so I think I have solutions for BOTH focus issues.
The next live video on Facebook should be the best one yet.
Now the Winter Olympics presents a new complication. When should I do the next LIVE video?
I probably won’t be watching the Olympics but I suspect many of you will, so I have decided not to go up against the Opening Ceremony tonight.
If you have suggestions, please let me know. I’m still thinking about when to go live with my new stuff.
By the way, I also changed the subscription software for the blog. This is the first time I’m using it to announce a new blog post. I hope it reaches everyone. If you have questions about it, please email me at email@example.com.
In the meantime, Monkey says, don’t forget the sale ending. Also, it’s time to stop playing with gear and get busy with the recycling bin.
