The coolest toolbar ever for printing. I’ve used Prinliminator. It takes time to get rid of everything. Since my laptop isn’t connected to a printer, I have trouble saving a webpage and transfer it over to the laptop.
PrintFriendly is easier, child friendly, does a better job, AND creates a PDF for you. No more fiddling with turning Knitty patterns into WORD documents and re-sizing all the columns. It worked great–even for someone who isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to computer stuff. You gonna love it, I tell you.
How does PrintFriendly work? You enter the name of the webpage you want to print. It will make you a version without background images, extra stuff, and everything else you want to leave out. I was tired of losing half of my page (and all of that ink) to the junk. Not only can you delete extra images and texts you don’t want, the best thing is that you may make the text as big as you need! Very useful as some webpage uses such small text. Your printer will thank you.
Go and print up a bunch of knitting patterns now…here’s on my docket, for the most part.
Where have I been? Overwhelmed…not a statement that should induce any pity ‘cuz I brought it all on myself. I have been busy, nonetheless. Today, getting all the things done made blogging just like another chore. I would have been more productive, but, I had to drive hither and yon to get one of the teens to 4H Sewing, then over a friend’s, and the youngest one to a 3-hour birthday party at an indoor skate park (colder inside than out…what gives!)
My friend Myria and I did sneak out for an hour to take a peek at some remarkable hand-pierced quilts by Janelle Rebick, featured quilter of this month’s First Friday Art Walk Quiltworks. Wish I had more time there…and brought my camera too!
By day, Jenelle is a fourth generation teacher–her 15th year teaching. By night, she lives out her childhood passion an eclectic quilter with work featuring everything from traditional paper piecing to a whimsical beer drinking pig. Jenelle frequently uses her own hand-dyed fabrics in her art quilts, many of which are inspired by photos. Here you’ll hear what a proud father has to say about his daughter’s commemorative quilt. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to view quilts made by Jenelle up close at Quiltworks during the month of November. The other part of the showing was Christmas-themed quilts by local quilters. My friend Kristin has one of her holiday favorites there. I am always humbled, encouraged, surprised and now…I am going to start quilting!
It was really happening…a huge turn out of the quilting community. Again Dave, Marilyn, and the crew of QuiltWorks provided great eats, drinks, and prizes. A great sale was had by all and life was sweet in QuiltWorks.
So, here I am still trying to get a grip on my life…but sometimes you just feel upside down and inside out! Now back to crocheting the blanket…I will be up all night to finish it before 7 in the morning! Teach me to play all day…you play, you pay! LOL
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
