Today’s To Do List

Eagerly await new camera! Check!

A few years ago my sweetie got the best camera ever, a Canon PowerShot A 650 IS. This is the one with the screen that flips around multi directionally. Best. Camera. Ever. 12.1 Mega pixels, macro and the list goes on. I can assure you I didn’t explore the depths of what this camera had to offer. Something happened a while back and the zoom in/out button got stuck. UGH. I can tell you that it made taking pictures very hard. Of course when my sweetie called to see if it can be repaired it’s out of warranty and would cost more than the camera is worth. Sigh. I’m going to keep the camera just because I love it.

So my sweetie did some research and a new camera is on its way, a Canon PowerShot SX 520 HS, a 16 mega pixel camera with lots of features that I’m hoping to better explore. I think at some point I’m going to get his tripod out and shoot some quilting video. I might even post it if I don’t think it’s too dorky.

Finish Christmas Cards! 

It’s still Christmas until Epiphany and I’m going with that. The last few weeks have been a little nutty.

Quilt and Prep work for Road to California

My sewing room needs me and I’m going to listen to her siren song. There have been ideas for the book floating around in my head that I want to put down on paper and tape to the wall so that when I start working on quilts I can go for it. Ideas have been flitting around in my head for months, eh who’s kidding who, years. Years, I say.
Kits need to be finished up and sent ahead. I’m getting excited. No. Wait. That’s not true. I’ve been excited since Stevii Graves asked me to come teach. Sweet!!!
And a Thank You card needs to be sent, but the person is in the process of a move so I think I’ll wait until she gets where she’s going. It’s always exciting to have mail arrive when you get to your new home.

at play greg caseWhile I’m at Road I get to see Diane Magidson of Sew Batik. She’s one of the sweetest people I know. There will be cookies and dinner. I’m hoping to get to see Jake Finch too. Oh and I get to meet Keith Dommer in person. Holy Happiness! I’m excited about that.

@play will be in the teacher exhibit. I love to see my quilts hanging in shows even if they’re not competing.

I’m off to get some stitching done.

Happy Quilting!
