a friend of mine takes her tablet everywhere and uses a Reader app to high-light her charts as she stitches – no more highlighter on the linen! I tried this with my android (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2) and couldn’t get the same effect (she has an iPad) but by chance I stumbled across this post today – http://meari.blogspot.co.nz/2015/04/stitching-and-tablets.html
It’s brilliant. I was only doing one thing wrong – not saving my scan chart to the SD card.
Guess what I’ll be doing tonight! No more stressing, hopefully!
And league season starts officially this weekend. Already? I am so blessed as one supplier is giving me water bottles for the babes; and another set of parents has stepped up to coach/manage the second team. I was worried about being in two places at once (impossible) and letting some kids down or alternatively having to do a lot of rotation every game day (which annoys the parents who won’t step up, that their little Johnny doesn’t ever get a full game). So while I will be spending a lot of time with Kara while she learns the ins & outs, I won’t be spread thin and it should be an enjoyable season.

Thanks for the kudos 🙂 If you need assistance, let me know. Good luck!
Thank you! Much appreciated
Such a shame when others expect you to manage an insane amount because they don’t want to do any! Well done to you and don’t forget to enjoy yourself 🙂
It seems the same every year. I haven’t had a season of not doing anything for nine years now!
