It's Here!!

No not the goat, but she is here too-a temporary edition to our family. We have all fallen in love with her even when she escaped from here pen and we had to chase her around town. Then, of course, she ran past a garage full of party goers who got a big kick out of three grown adults and a few children chasing a goat. Me being one of them ahem...only in my life. Does it tell how small this town is when you can still keep farm animals in the city limits?


No what is here is my new-to-me camera!! I am so excited. This is how it went: 4 months or so Lilli took my camera to school and it disappeared? Two weeks ago I could take it no more and said to my self...self why don't you look on e-bay maybe you will get lucky! (Insert sarcastic laugh) Well I decided I could only spend so much money and that I wanted the Kodak Z740 which had been falling below our $ limit. Okay so far so good. Then the bidding begin and the "oh I got it, there is two seconds left....wait what happened...who is the @#$%^ who just swooped me" Argh, sniff sniff. Bid again and again and again and yeah 13 cameras and 6 days later I WON. I was so blasted excited finally winning and not being snorkeled out of yet another camera. Now I am getting used to it and am excited to share some of what I have been up to without using the scanner. My new accidental love are these fire king tea cups. I have a few more that I will show you later but I think they are so cute. Does anyone know if they come with entire dish sets?
And this is a quilt top I made a few weekends ago. I call it Summer Camp I did not have a pattern I just winged it...hehe not always the best plan but it worked out. I am going to have it quilted on Thursday and will post when it is done.

Woohoo for a new camera! I love the quilt top. "Summer Camp" is a perfect name for it.

I like your new quilt top. It looks great! (and a lot like one that I just finished up, except in different colors)

congratulations both for
:: the quilt (very nice & subtle colors & very often the most simple pattern looks the best, which the case here)
:: the new camera ! Go in the neighborhood and show us your area ! I can't believe you had to use the scanner meanwhile ! (I didn't notice it indeed !)

Have a lovely week - dry weather expected here ( at last !) so hopefully going to the beach...

Congrats on the camera! And I agree, the quilt is fabulous and does remind me of summer camp!
