Bev :
Judy, if you are talking about the Kindle HD I think it only has the front facing camera for use with Skype.

 

Thanks Bev. Kind of a bummer but if I.had read the specs more thoroughly I would.have known that

I went looking at tablets today.  I would enjoy having one, but not sure if it's the best use for my money. I LOVE the new Xbox one. I was thinking of investing in that so I can do some neat workouts. I have never bought a gaming system, and also don't know if this would be the best use for my money.  Both cost so much money. 

I am so far behind in my quilt projects. I have two that must be done by Dec. 1 as they are Christmas decorations. I have another that is causing me some grief and then one I have yet to start. I wish I could hire someone to help ((sigh)) .

Into the second week of recovery from a total hip replacement.  I'm thinkn' I over did it a little yesterday.  Sore and lazy today.

Karla. ... I understand your excitement over snow.  We had about 12 hours of mist like rain.  Expected it to turn to snow, but it did not.  All moisture is very welcome of course.

Judy T.  You are such a kick.  I can just see you laying on the couch staring at the picture.  I understand your disappointment.

I saw a new BOM in the last Keepsake Quilting catalog with paper piecing by Carol Doak.  I'd really like to do some paper piecing, but I'm a little leery to order because I've been burned on BOM kits.  The last one I ordered from Fons & Porter called Lil Woolies has been backordered twice and no idea when I'll get it.  One I ordered from Keepsake Quilting  a few years ago was a three part one, got the first part took a full year to get the next two.  Needless to say by that time I'd moved on and it's still in the mailing package.

Beautiful sunny day today.  But oh so cold.

Into the second week of recovery from a total hip replacement.  I'm thinkn' I over did it a little yesterday.  Sore and lazy today.

Lazy is good - sore is not!  Rich had his hip replaced 3 1/2 weeks ago and decided he could go back to driving the truck and cattle trailer Tuesday.  The driving was fine, the walking was not.  He hasn't used a cane since the 2nd week.  In one barnyard he was walking along and suddenly fell into a water filled hole.  Luckily he had an Amish man with him to help with the cattle and he was able to help him out of the MESS!  His hip is OK, his knee and hand are very sore - He had a partial knee replacement on that knee 9 months ago but fortunately everything seems to be all right.  If he had a cane with him he could have tested the "waters" before stepping into it!  He called me an told me to get a full set of clothes ready for him.  What a mess!  The hole was purposely put there to lower one side of the feeder wagon for easier loading.  The smell was pretty bad as the water was combined with rotten silage and other barnyard goodies!  I washed his clothes twice to get the smell out.  We are used to those smells but not that bad.  His compression stockings were harder than ever to remove dripping wet.  I smelled as bad as he did after helping him get rid of the clothes.  

Don't try anything foolish like he did and take it easy.  It is amazing how quickly recovery is from these new hips - he had the other one replaced 2 years ago and that leg is still weaker than the recently done one - new style hip, new incision placement, less muscle involvement.  Hope you come along as quickly as he did and feel much better than before your surgery.  Good luck and take care. Also, beware of innocent-looking puddles - they may not be what they seem!!!

Hi Patti Mac, glad you have that hip replacement behind you.  Now take it easy and let your body recover before you test it so much...LOL!    You have permission to be lazy and besides, there are lots of hand quilting you can do plus all those quilting magazines that you've piled up and never really read, right?  Seriously, hope your feeling better soon.  

p.s.  Check your pm's...

You guys wont believe what happened to me and I sure hope nobody else experiences this when they decide to get a new machine.  I had such a great feeling when i got my 3.0 at expo then a couple of weeks later found out they would take the 3.0 back for the sensation but today ijust learned that the place didn't mean they would give me a credit return they took it as a trade off the sensation so for me the great deal ended up to not be so great because i am oweing for bot machines on paper.  all the figures looked right on the receipt but i sure screwed up on this one even though its a great machine i'm sure.  My DH thinks i was bamboozled .  So when calling the store they said there is absolutely no returns after 10 days and also that once i brought it home its considered used.  It will take me awhile to get over this mistake of miscommunication everyone be careful when making your purchase.

Let's not be doing that!  You don't want to set that recovery back.  

You can get into paper piecing without doing a BOM.  Check out the paper piecing group here on QCA.  There are links to several good projects.  Or look for the classes on Craftsy.

Ugh, what an experience!  I hope he didn't damage his new hip or knee.

so for me the great deal ended up to not be so great because i am oweing for both machines on paper....my DH thinks i was bamboozled .

So sorry to hear about your experience.  This does not sound like a reputable dealer.  That's too bad that the joy has gone out of what should have been a fun purchase.

I'm sorry to hear of your new machine troubles. I think your DH might be right. They should have explained exactly what they were going to do, before they did it. Not make it a surprise after it was too late for you to change your mind.

Oh IS, I am so very sorry that you got into this situation.  I thought this dealer was a very reputable one.  How this got so mixed up is beyond belief.   Guess I won't be dealing with them for any buys.   Ginny

Ditto on that first statement and when you find someone, send them my way on the second.
