Pet peeves - Ugh!

Recommended Posts

Happens even on expensive leather. I made this Navigator's Board and when I dyed it a lot of wee dots appeared. Bug bites

It was covered in these, bottom left, but only showed up after dyeing

@SUP, Since you live in a "cereal free zone", I might recommend "railroad board" poster board.  I got mine from Amazon.  Works good for patterns.  JM2C,  Jim

I have used vinyl flooring for my patterns. I also used the boxes from Alpo Flavor Snacks that my dog really liked. The cardboard

My pet peeve atm is that my 'ye ol'de pooter is getting long in the tooth not letting me go on my fave site, this one ,, it was working fine up until a week or so ago, but all of a sudden it stopped connecting to this site.....GRRRR!!! I cleared all the cache , deleted old files , cleared  browser history,  done all the usual, but nup !!  so I'm using a public access computer in town  . So I won't be posting as much as I used to, not until I get a new 'pooter'. That could take a while :( Don't bother replying as I I won't see it, unless you PM me, but I won't  be able to reply to that, grrr!!  

I'll just have to bite the bullet, put on my pith helmet, grab my blunderbuss and go hunting for a new pooter.

Makes me glad I replaced my computer before it totally stopped co-operating with me. It was just getting really slooooow. When I first logged in in the morning, it would take a good 4 or 5 minutes of refreshing the screen before it would actually connect with a website. Then it would be fine for the rest of the day.

I had to do a refresher program for work online. I've been using a pad for quite a while and only had a quite old laptop. My neighbor replaced the old drive with a solid state drive and I can't believe the difference.  $125. New battery too.

Paying  for an online pattern. 
but it has no printable instruction,,,only a youtube video.
A video that leaves out some of the steps in critical stitching instructions.

My 'pet peeve this week, and the last few weeks is that we're experiencing some extreme temps  '. We've had around 50 C quite frequently making it very restrictive , can't do much outside I'll get fried , and only spending 2-3 hrs in the workshop each day . Fans are well and good , up to 35c, anything above that, they struggle. 'One Powerball'.....I'll be investing in some serious air conditioning :yes:

 

Still using public access 'pooter 'atm. ggggrrrr!!

A good hack is hanging some ice cube bags in front of the fan.

My pet peeve is my poltergeist. It makes sure I spend half my life searching for stuff I don't find until I'm looking for something else.
