MIA camera

In an effort to become a good blogger I planned a post or two with a few photos.  However, my camera needs a homing device.  I took pictures in my sewing room Sunday but can't find the camera so we'll have to go with what I took with my phone.

Here's a happy thought...


Thanksgiving first.  The recipe books are out and groceries are being shopped for.  The kids will be home making for a happy, busy house.  My girls and I are planning some fun for the next day.  I hope I find my camera before then so that I can show you what we're up to.  

Another fun Friday after Thanksgiving event involves this pile of fabric.....

The first clue in Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt will be out.  That means I will be trying to find time each weekend to keep up.  I am not a big fan of orange but I've chosen fabrics in the same color scheme as Bonnie.  I think my colors are a little more subdued, though.  Her quilts are not for the faint of heart.  They involve many pieces, tons of cutting, and miles of thread.  My sewing machine is acting up so I might have to pull out my travel machine while my main one goes in for a check up.  I can't imagine being without a machine, even for one day, so I am glad I have a back up. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments from my last post.  Also, I am happy some new followers have come on board.  It's a nice way for me to check out some new blogs, too.

Until next time...



  1. Actually seeing the count down of days has me almost sweating here! How WILL I get it all done?!

  2. Your "countdown" gave me a reality check, Pam. Somehow it all does get done. With the kids being older, gift buying gets harder.
    My recipes and shopping lists are all set for Thanksgiving and I am looking forward to the kids being home, too.
    The days spent together are priceless.

    Good luck with your quilt challenge, sounds like fun although I am not a quilter.

  3. Did you find that camera yet? That must be so frustrating!

    And, wow! I thought we had six weeks left until Christmas and it turns out it is only five--oh brother! This time of year is just a bit too busy for me :)

    Sounds like you and the girls will have something special to look forward to--looking forward to seeing your new project!

  4. So not ready for Christmas!!! Yikes!

  5. The quilt mystery sounds like a very interesting project. I bookmarked the site and am looking forward to seeing your start on it.

  6. Look forward to hearing more about the activities. I'm a hope to one day quilter, and also have lost my camera.

  7. I can find my camera.....just can never find batteries that aren't dead. :)

  8. Hello from a new follower! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing your quilting project grow :)
    Best wishes.
