I had to laugh -

The other day - as I was browsing through various quilting blogs - I ran across a couple of Bonnie Hunter's recent posts all about how she was trying to get her "Quilt Cam" to work in a new/different way - ;))

Being somewhat "technically-challenged" myself -

I was curious and wanted to find out exactly what was involved -

And to learn how she does that "broadcasting" thing of hers -

So I started reading her posts -

And I had to laugh -

Not at her or her predicament - mind you - don't get me wrong -

And I don't DO Facebook - or YouTube - so I don't know first-hand -

And I didn't quite understand it all anyway -

But she was apparently successful in getting it to work -

And I was all - "Good for you!! - You figured it out!!" - ;))

But at one point she said -
(Emphasis added by me) -
I purposely wore a shirt with words during a test broadcast to make sure that I was NOT in mirror image for those watching. It would be too difficult for those watching to see me sitting at a backwards sewing machine, working on things that were also backwards. I don’t want to live in a backwards world, and neither should you.

And that part struck me as funny -

And I had to laugh -

Because when I read it -

BOB thought -

Oh, Bonnie -

Backwards?!?!? -

Seriously?!?!? -

Welcome to the world of A Left-Handed Quilter!! - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

LOL....of course for a left handed quilter the machine is still facing the other (wrong) way.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who smirked at that! I was laughing when I explained it to DH, since the directions always say, if you're left handed, just do the mirror image!!!

I read the same blog post and thought "perfect for a lefty" ....

Haha - the sewing machine is ALWAYS facing the wrong way for A Left-Handed Quilter - ;))

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

You're right, Katie - I wonder what she says about Left-Handed Quilters in the instruction booklet for her new ruler - ;))

Absolutely! - ;))

When I was growing up, I used to write in mirror writing. (we used pens with ink and it was faster and easier and didn't smear the ink.) In college, friends would ask, "were you in class today? Did you take notes? can I borrow them?" Then they would ask how to read them ... just hold them up to a mirror.
Right handers need to have more creative thinking.

When I was growing up, I wrote from Left to Right - with my Left-Hand (still do) - and was taught to hold the pen/pencil the same way that a Right-Handed person holds theirs - I just "reversed it" - no "hook" - no mirror writing - and no smearing. To this day - most people don't realize that I AM Left-Handed when they watch me write something - until they realize that the paper is angled in the "other" direction - or they hand me a clipboard or something to sign and I tilt it to suit me. I think we Lefties have more creativity - because we have ALWAYS had to think outside of the box - ;))
