Strips and a New Camera - Feather Bed --- Oh Yes!

I decided that I needed to get some of the scraps on my  cutting table under control.  While Frank watched the first half of the football game with the 'Aints, I started sewing them in strips.  I saw one of the ladies whose blog I follow was sewing some strips from flannels and made a really pretty drunkard's path top.  I think I can make these strips into a modern quilt by making some large drunkard paths and using a solid background. Either that or I am going to have to start separating the darks and the lights, which I am not worrying about now.  Just grab and sew!

Oh, man!  I just realized I could make my own Feather Bed Quilt that Sophie won't give me!  LOL.

When we went to get on our bikes for a 3 mile ride, yes I am doing some riding to strengthen the knee,  I had trouble getting my camera in the front saddle bag. 

We went out to Best Buy this morning and got me a new camera.  The one Frank got me for my birthday is a huge camera compared to the ones I have been using for the last 10 or so years.  I am used to carrying it in my pocket!  I wanted a smaller one for biking and where ever I need to use my hands and not carry a large camera

I got the Fuji Finepix XL for $79.  It has 16 megapixels, 5 X zoom.  It is light and small.  Just exactly what I wanted!  And for cheap!

It  boggles my mind that I get 100 times the camera that I used 20 years ago, for 10 % of the price. 

 You can tell from the photos I just took wth  the new camera, that we had a very active day today!

  1. It is wonderful that you were able to get back on the bicycle! It was so nice here this past weekend that I pried myself away from the sewing machine and went for a walk.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
