Sewing Skirts & Lightscribe


I used the previously posted skirt 'tutorial'' to make the girls a skirt each last night.  They are very happy with them (love that they don't notice their mum isn't too good on inserting zips). 

Last night I also discovered how nice Lightscribe is when labelling discs - I only did writing on it but next will try to add an image.  They look heaps nicer than writing on them with black vivid.  We've had the capabilities for about 6 years as our computer DVD drive has Lightscribe built in.  We just hadn't used it.  You can get coloured discs and gold discs which could be lots of fun.  Basically the laser that writes the images or info to the disc is then used to put the label on the disc (you have to turn the disc over so the laser can work on the label side of the disc).

I'm almost ready for the school term to begin, spent some time in my class today putting things back after the cleaners have been through and have a few loose ends to tie up to be ready for the week ahead.  I am going to try to do my planning on google docs this term to try to eliminate the paper clutter that always seems to surround me!

You've done a great job with the girls skirts Lara, and they look proud to be wearing them. I am hoping to get into a lot more sewing again too, especially since we have a grandbaby on the way.
