Doing a little every day

Having too much fun with my new printer, except the color management on my computer can't translate between Photoshop RGB and Epson CMYK worth crap. The photo utility that came with the printer gets the colors right, but will only print stock photo sizes--8" x 10", 4" x 6", etc--which distorts the odd-size clip art and cropped photos I want to work with most. Right now the "project" is the printing; best to get this all figured out before I have a big idea that needs specific images, right?

Then when I get tired of futzing with the printer, on to Netflix and sequins. I'm making a quilted version of the 787 display I test at work. We recently got new cubicles, and I have a lot of vomit-pink "wall" space to cover. The sequins represent buttons and the color patterns of the display's fail state. :)

It's nice to be back.

I thought I had rectangle sequins (color unimportant), but I don't, and I can't find any online.

New Toys

Last Saturday I bought an inkjet printer--nothing special--and today I picked up a flatbed scanner.
