Great sewing everyone, I won't mention you individually, for fear of missing someone.
I've just pulled all my summer clothes out of my wardrobe to put away. There is not a lot left.  :o
There is less than a dozen items that fit and are in good working order, how did that happen! Guess what I'll be doing this weekend?

Fast Video Downloader is an add on to Chrome.  When I get back home, I'll ask my tech support, DS1, the exact site he used.

I like to download the classes to my iPad so I can watch them on an airplane or while I'm waiting in a doctor's office.  I have trouble on my iMac with the classes stopping and then starting again.

Terri, Thanks for posting the pictures.  I love the fabrics you choose to take home with you.  Louise always has the best fabric.  Have fun at the Expo.

Porterhouse steak, rice and vegetable medley, perhaps a bit of salad.

Pina, you know I keep wet noodles around, just in case!  :rotfl:

Yes, that bee does look slightly mutant. Perhaps it is nicer when stitched out?  ;D

Lynda, that is good news about your cat.  Both the health, and her forgiving you for taking her to the vet.

Suzi, I know what you mean about heat sapping one's energy.  Nothing like a good book under the circumstances.

Jan, time flies when you're having fun.  I spent a couple hours weaving on my drawloom this afternoon.  I only got about 6" done, but I put on some music and the time just flew by.

When my kids were in school phonics was out and "whole language" was in.  I think the problem is that they use Method A and 90% of the kids learn to read pretty well.  They look at the 10% and say "We need a new method so these kids can learn too."  So far, so good.  Method B is introduced and those 10% do learn to read, but you lose a different 10% who did better with Method A.  The experts look for Method C which will work for everyone.  Which of course it doesn't because children learn differently.  You'd think someone out there would grasp this simple concept, but apparently not.  Also, do not try to use the method that "natural readers" use to learn to read to teach kids who have a hard time with it.  If it worked, they'd all be "natural readers" now wouldn't they?
I say this as the parent of one child who taught herself to read by age 4 in her spare time, and one who, when they tried to teach him in school tended to use the 'look at the first 3 letters and guess' method (he did figure it out eventually.)  Rant off...

Yes, I did figure out my pdf problem.  I wrote up an 11 page explanation of how I made my drawloom attachment with measurements, suggestions and a bunch of photos to illustrate various parts.  Apparently when you convert a Word doc to pdf on a Mac, you get a huge pdf, which you can then reduce in size.  I did that and was able to post it in the files section of a Yahoo group. 

The other problem was that there were people in a Ravelry weaving group that were interested and there really isn't anywhere to post something like that, so I copied the parts of the text that were of general interest, along with a couple photos, and then invited anyone interested to pm me with their email and I'd just send them the whole pdf.  As you can imagine, this is a niche thing, so I don't expect a lot of requests.  You have to have the right kind of loom that can be converted, and be interested in some very fiddly weaving.  I think I've gotten 4 requests so far, so I don't expect to be overwhelmed.  Problem solved.
