I had every good intention of posting WIP Wednesday yesterday, but I was a bit taken aback when I discovered that Google Hangouts on Air, which we’ve used for the Virtual Stitch-Ins for The Stitch, is no more, and really cramping the Virtual Stitch-In Friday night. So I spent a good bit of last night trying to figure out video encoding software and YouTube Live and what’s feasible, and then eventually just starting at the television in slack-jawed silence, cursing technology for dis-intermediating us from our audience yet again.
I’ve also written a lot of blog posts for work this week and I’m a little burned out on words. And technology. So possibly Lynn is coming to my house tomorrow night and we’ll be virtually stitching-in together and streaming it since I’ve got baseball/art class/Fall Festival for elementary school/a work event for me tomorrow that are going to prevent me from really sitting down and figuring out a video solution in the next 34 hours.
I’m also submitting a design to a magazine for the first time (!!!!) so that’s stressing me out a bit. And Fred the dog has wandered off and rolled around in a dead deer carcass for two nights this week. So, in the mean time, here’s Nina helping with another quilt on Cindy. Nina has the right idea to get in good lighting while surrounding herself with quilts.
