SKYPE

I love Skype. Skype is like video conferencing. You need a computer and a web cam. And, best of all, it is a free download. How does this picture relate? Because I have Skype and my daughter in Florida has Skype, two of my granddaughters helped select the fabric for this cute Swing Bag that is in the current issue of Quilts and More. First I made the center one out of fabric I have and like. Then I called Lauren and Maddie and showed it to them. That's when it got fun. I had a box of fat quarters with fabric I guessed would be a pass. I held up several selections in front of the computer and when Maddie saw the chocolate and yellow, that was it. So, the one on the left is for Maddie. Now it was Lauren's turn. I already knew she would want black and white so that made it a bit easier. So Black and white fabrics were held in front of the computer. The one on the lower right is her selection. I got all three made yesterday and that included a trip to the fabric store for the webbing and rings. Got to love those fast and easy projects. And you got to love the technology to connect with family who live 3000 miles from you. I love Skype!
