5.0 It is lonely here

March 17, 2010

Hey all

If you are one of the people who can’t seem to scroll down to the bottom of my posts, I mentioned something about a computer aided drafting group I created on flickr.

If you’ve ever drafted a quilting pattern on the computer, and don’t mind sharing it with the world, you can check out my flickr group here.

Thats the Scientific Quilters Quilting Design Group or http://www.flickr.com/groups/sciquiltdesign/

I’d love for someone else to become a member at least.  Let me know I’m not talking just to myself.

You can also enter a giveaway by making a comment on the pi podcast blog, sending me e-mail, giving me show ideas, pretty much anything that proves you actually come to visit (at least for a little while).

Or maybe your ears aren’t ready to forgive me with all those ‘p’ sounds on the last podcast. 

In my headphones at the computer – it didn’t sound all that bad – in the car stereo – yikes! 

If I could find a way to drive my car into my house to listen through my car stereo maybe I would do so (and it would save me from having to go outside down the steps every morning to go start the car before work).

Anyway, come say hi.  I am going to be a quilting fool between now and sunday sometime.  I get to be loud and quilt whenever I want (after work).  Very nice for a change.

Also working hard to start raising some big tent poles.  And these poles are very large, but the circus to come I think could be amazing!  (you’ll be able to understand that reference soon) And no I’m not quilting a circus tent – am I that ridiculous? – wait don’t answer that!


  1. I haven’t listened to that podcast yet, so I can’t comment. But I *do* know that a windsock on a microphone will help eliminate popping noises – like that “p” sound. (Which reminds me of one of my favourite sketches on Carol Burnett – when she was talking to “Penny Poppins” – Mary Poppins’ sister.

  2. Oops – I apologize for the typo on my previous comment – I forgot to close the brackets. 😦

  3. I’m here! I have never drafted a quilt on the computer so I haven’t checked out the flickr group. I just recently found my EQ5 software, so maybe I will draft something one day. So far I haven’t had time to play with it.

    This week is Spring Break for my family so we have been doing family stuff and I haven’t had any time to listen to podcasts. So I haven’t listened to the latest one yet – next week, I hope.

  4. I don’t always comment, but I have listened to every single podcast so far, so don’t stop podcasting. I’m sure many more people than you think, are listening, but just don’t get around to commenting.

    • Thank you so much Debby. I am sure of that too, but I am doing a giveaway and was waiting for an outpouring of comments, and … it was somewhat quiet. By the way, I am glad you’re still here. Seriously!

  5. Just found your site,thanks to Annie Smith. Uploaded all the podcasts from itunes last night and will start listening today after work. Looking forward to them.

  6. Wow, a lot of information on this podcast–the Pi quilt is a fun idea, kinda’ “secret decoder ring” quilt if you don’t put anything about Pi in the quilt itself.
    I haven’t done any drafting on computer programs, but I think I may try after you explained the steps and posted photos of the steps. That keeps it from being so frustrating when I try to work through the steps and don’t understand exactly how to make it do what I want it to do! Keep up the good stuff, jill
