Answers to a few questions
2-The webcam is on during the week while I'm working in the studio. It goes to sleep when I do and sometimes I turn it off, so in those cases the last photo is the one that will be there.
3- I don't make a quilt EVERY day. But will try change what is on the wall often. And if I can't take down a project I'll move the camera for a new view!
4- I've had questions on what EXACTLY is a webcam? It is a just like a video camera. I have told it 'how often' to take a photo. I could take them a lot, but the streaming video doesn't work so well for most people. So we are taking them in a certain time interval. For example a photo every 500 seconds. Then the photo is uploaded for you to see. The closer the photos are taken together the more it looks like a movie. Right now it would be like a flip book if you saved all the photos and put them on pages ...hehe! The image on my newsletter on the front of the website was one of the photos I saved. I hope that helps!
5- My design wall is something I've had for a long time. It is made up of 2 flannel covered foam core building sheets. These are then bolted to the wall. I push pins into the foam, not the wall.
6-How do I keep my studio 'clean'. Sometimes it looks clean.. and well.. sometimes it doesn't.. hehe! If I am making a big quilt it is going to get messy. But I really don't like to work in a mess. So I tend to keep things neatish.. put them away in bins so I can't SEE them messy and generally clean up as I go. I try and keep the work table very clean as you can see it as soon as you open the front door. And I don't like to sit all day in a mess... it doesn't feed my soul. And I'm in often in this room 14 hours a day.
7- On 4-12-08 Monica asked me in the comments about how I work on projects and keep them organized. The red bins I have in my studio are project bins. For the most part I'm working on one project then the next.. but I often have several projects in different phases. Like right now I have 2 diamond quilts and a logcabin in progress, but they don't have a 'job' yet. So I have a book that I'm starting and all those quilts will be worked on in sequence. But I might have one I'm quilting on while one is on the wall being built. On this particular day I was showing charity quilt tops on my wall that were donated by quilters on my yahoo group. So 3 of the quilts that I put up were tops from other quilters... not my tops. AND.. I have about 15 projects in various stages that are just for me or don't have jobs yet... and we won't count the ones in the 'deep freeze' that have not been worked on for a LONG time.. hehe!
