DH and my birthday are only a couple of days apart so we celebrate them together. We went to Omaha had lunch and then hit our usual hangout, Best Buy. He drools over the Blu-rays and I check out the gadgets.
I was really hoping my next "gadget" would be a dryer but DH doesn't get that the dryer shouldn't take 3 cycles to dry something. He's just fine with doing laundry this way. Yes, he does the laundry. He only does it because I forget about it..cause the DRYER doesn't dry.
I don't even need a fancy dryer like the side loading kind. I found one for a reasonable price but DH said we didn't need one. Maybe I should accidentally break the dryer to point where he can't get it fixed. It's only 10+ years old and has had parts replaced several times over the years. I love DH dearly, but if he's happy doing a couple of loads of laundry that take all day to do, so be it.
My b-day gadget is a Bamboo pen and touch tablet. It uses both a stylus and your fingers to scroll through pages and do items. My last Bamboo tablet used a mouse and a stylus but it wasn't always that responsive. I love the stylus on this tablet. I'm still getting used to using my fingers like a mouse but it's getting easier.
On to quilting:
I despise Steam-a-seam 2 light. It doesn't stay on the paper and makes a huge mess as it sticks to itself like Saran Wrap. I'm cursed because all the LQS carry it and not the regular Steam-a-Seam or the Steam-a-Seam 2. Everyone loves this stuff but me.
I've tried pinning it to the paper, cutting down the roll, I've even tried pressing it back on with an applique sheet.
I may have to order it from another site. I found I could get an entire 25 yard roll of it for 119 at JoAnn.com. I could use a 40% off coupon for that right?
If you know how to use Steam-a-Seam 2 lite without going stark raving mad, let me know.
