First of all I want to say thanks to everyone who visited me today and left lovely words of support. (That Post Here) You guys really are amazing. So thanks again from my heart.
Here’s the trouble maker……..
The lens won’t close because the zoom thing won’t go back into position. This is what is causing the camera to not turn on. If I can’t turn it on than I can’t upload my pictures to my computer. The camera is 13 yrs old so I did get my money from it but to not have a working camera is a real downer.
It took me a while to figure out how to fix this. I thought about taking the memory card out of the camera and making copies of the pictures to scan on my printer. The problem with that plan is that my printer isn’t working right either. There would be no guarantee that it’d work.
I don’t know why but I couldn’t add an email to my phone so I could email the pictures there or to anybody else’s email. It keep saying it couldn’t connect to the server. I tried uploading the pics to facebook but I kept getting the white loading screen for hours. So I tried to call my family to see if I could send my pictures to their phone so they could try to upload them to facebook. My plan was to copy them from there. That was a fail. Instead, that turned into an hour them talking to me about things on my phone that I had no idea about. The pics didn’t get on facebook but I did appreciate the help.
So, I turned to my boys. I had to figure out why my USB connector wasn’t working. Forever my computer didn’t recognize the device but it really was my only option if I could make that work. Ahhh….my boys are so smart. They got it figured out.
Finally I was able to upload my pics to my computer. I did retake the pics for the ones I took yesterday didn’t look so good once in editing. What I have here is the best of them.
Yay……Here is my project and the post I wanted to have up yesterday!
Also to our sponsors:
I choose for this hop to make a project that I have had in my pattern/book stash for a while now. It’s from the book Haunted Threads by Needl Love
I have to tell you this project was plagued with problems. Besides the camera I didn’t buy enough fabric. His shirt is short waisted but that’s okay cause the pants hide that. And oh the pants….I had only enough fabric for the front the pants but only after I cut the fabric in half. That also helped line up the stripes so they would be vertical. For the back half I just used some black Halloween fabric from my stash. Lesson here is that the mental list now longer is reliable, lol.
Aside all my problems, I love this scarecrow and I love participating in these hops! They really are a lot of fun and worth the work.
Thanks so much for stopping by, for your understanding, and your patience. Here is the schedule for today and tomorrow. See the complete schedule here.
