unraveled wednesday | 4.3.19 …

As one can see, my main task today is TAXES! Fun – not… but I do have two new additions to MSQT: Austin Kleon’s Keep Going, released just yesterday and a new iPad mini, added to my collection of iToys, er iTools!

“Why the new mini?” inquiring minds want to know…several reasons:

  1. I had a previous mini, 3rd generation, I think; I gave it up for the iPadPro two years ago, primarily for the Apple Pencil feature: I can actually write using my own handwriting, always a plus in my column…
  2. I like the Pro (larger screen) well enough and also have a keyboard cover…problem is, it’s too big and doesn’t “port” easily enough…
  3. I read a review about a 10 days ago that gave the new mini not only highest remarks but also casually mentioned the Apple Pencil worked with it! SOLD! And so last Friday, when I went to pick up the new microwave oven I also got the new iPad mini, 5th generation!

I started Austin Kleon’s new book this morning; the subtitle is “10 ways to stay creative in good times and bad,” essentially establishing different habits! Austin, a writer, also draws and creates redacted poetry from newspaper articles.

Stitching continues on the quilts for the Quilt Show, just a month away. I’m stitching – by hand – the binding on the big quilt. That will pretty much wrap everything all up and I can focus more attention on making a few novelty items to sell – we have over a 1,000 ! – plus the quilting supplies, books, etc that no longer spark joy! At least, not for me!

The forecast today offers sunshine! Hope it’s yours too! Joining Kat and friends .

Cheers~

  1. I’m #1 on the hold list for Keep Going. Should be here by the time I return from my trip. Lucky me, Tracy does our taxes. I’d have to hire someone if it were left to me,

  3. Looking forward very much to seeing your quilt when it’s finished … That’s a lot of creativity, fitting in making new things as well. Your new iPad mini looks very neat. I am struggling with an iPad 2 which is so old now lots of things won’t work with it!
