Videooooooooooooo

I have been having both fun and absolute total frustration - what a combo! And what can cause that? Either quilting a perfect seam and then finding a pucker on the back (oh, yes that has happened to me many times) or a computer. Heh. So, I bought a video camera that I needed to learn to use, didn't understand how to use the editing software; had a major computer crash while simultaneously uploading and downloading videos...well, you get the idea.

I have created an account at You Tube (my pal Trish has some vids there!) and so does Pat Sloan - -whom I greatly admire. http://www.youtube.com/user/CrazyShortcutQuilts and I've started uploading some things that I like to teach. I'll be adding more in the next few weeks and any comments or advice is very welcome! This is all very new to me so I am learning as I go, but overall I am having fun! Oh, and the "Bobbin" video has some squares that I am going to start quilting - in the hopes of making a quilted vest or jacket. I saw some sweet patterns at Market that motivated me even more to "get the lead out" and get to work on this project!

Here's a very short clip of my little pumpkin, Audrey (my granddaughter).

Watched your videos on YuoTube - good job! Keep it up and you will sell a million copies! I will embed one on my site today. Congratulations on SchoolHouse and Take & Teach - I heard you and Sarah did well and had a blast!

Thank Laura! I am trying to learn about the different formats and also editing - so far I am not happy with the quality but I will keep trying :)

Sarah did all the hard work and she did a superb job at every event. Wish you had been there - - maybe next year?
