Pictures! Pictures! I've missed my pictures!

Well as you may have read - my latest digital camera took a very hard fall about a month ago and left me with no way to take and post photos - other than my phone camera but the quality is just not the same.... however I'm happy to report that about a week ago I thought since it's stuck on the "Cannon" blue welcome screen when I turn it on.... would it hurt if I dropped it again and knocked some sense into it? LOL :P

And that is what I did - and it worked! Still the camera isn't working correctly - I still can't change any of the settings or go to video mode but at least I can take a photo or two now! ;) However, for the record, I do NOT recommend dropping your camera on accident much less on purpose... that's the whole reason I need a new one b/c I've dropped it at least 50 times in the past year :/

and just so you know - I HAVE been working in the sewing room on and off over the past couple weeks... Remember the mini 9-patch swap I hosted last year??? I'm hosting another small "makeup/potluck" swap again due in October for anyone who wanted to use up their leftover strips... or need more :)

The above are 6-7 sets of minis ready to be squared up... and look at this CUTE fabric below -with the hearts!!! I just la,la,love it!!!

I loved it so much - that I didn't want to share these with my swappers!! So I used up all the mini 9-patch blocks along with some other strips to make just a plain checker board mini quilt... or quilt block actually b/c it is only about 12".... each square will finish at 1"

Aaak - forgot to get a final photo of it... but the one above gives you an idea. I don't have anymore of the fabric to use for backing or binding so I'm thinking one day (not anytime soon as I have a list of to do already-see the 1st photo) I'll just simply use KONA white and made up a small doll quilt for one of my girls. ;)

And how about those Star Struck "Leaders & Enders" Bonnie..... how are they coming?

Yep! Still working on them in between sewing other stuff... I need to find a little box or something to drop them into so none of them get lost... just need another 40-50 so these will be going on for a while...

And b/c today is JudyL's Design Wall Monday - I can't actually show you what is on mine - b/c it is a secret project.... a fall mini swap but here's a neat photo that gives a hint. I finished adding the boarders on it last night and today will sandwich it up and begin quilting on it tonight. I think it's gonna roughly finish around 22"

Digital Camera Fun

Created with dumpr.net - photo fun

These are the fabrics that I ordered from Connecting Threads for the project. I'm happy with the colors since they are for fall... but good thing this is just a small table topper style quilt b/c I wouldn't want if for my bed... too yellow/orangy. .

But last night for the photo I placed it in the center of my dining room table now and it's growing on me - it really looks good in there - I'd love to show you a photo of what I see when walking by the doorway.... but I can't yet.

Good thing I have a 2nd mini all cut out and ready to sew up... a keeper for me? or perhaps a gift to a special family member... mmmm... I don't know yet. ;)

Glad to be back with a few of my pictures! Hope you didn't delete your bookmark for my site b/c I've been gone so long...

Love from Texas!


  1. Your first picture looks like my room. I have all those plastic containers. And I am working on 3" mini 9-patches and rails for a swap on Yahoo Groups. Mine is due by the end of Sept.
    Glad your camera is working partially. I have never dropped mine...try another battery. It may reset itself.
    XOXOXO Subee
