I’m the first to admit that I am not the computer expert in this household, and tend to work on a “need to know” basis. As long as I have the necessary know-how to do the tasks I want to on the computer, I’m happy. All this behind the scenes stuff is too much for me. But then again, I’m not a complete dummy, after all, I do know how to e-mail and write letters, documents and blogs. However I needed Robin’s help recently, as I’m trying hard to get my quilt documentation up to date. There’s no trouble with the more recent projects as the digital photos are stored on the computer and I know how to do that. But I’ve got heaps of old photos that needed scanning and uploading. After being shown several times and failing miserably, I asked Robin to do it for me. We worked as a team, with me running up and down the hallway to place each photo in the scanner, and with him uploading them onto the laptop. Isn’t this new fangled wireless technology wonderful! So Robin is certainly my hero.
Writing up the story behind each quilt is quite a slow process, but I’m getting there. It will take some time to get the whole job done, so I try and do a bit each week, writing then printing off the pages. Luckily, along with the old photos I have kept details of the size of each quilt, and fabric samples as well. I’d forgotten about some of the quilts I had made long ago and given away, so it is a real trip down memory lane.
