Early Snow

We had a little snow last week so I stayed in and sewed. This is the first time I can remember having this much snow this early in November. We got about 5" or so. It was still coming down when I was taking pictures.

You may remember last week I showed this adorable sheep print and the beginning layout of a baby girl Plus quilt.

I got the flimsy sewn together and couldn't resist a couple of pics in the snow. Actually, I didn't go out in the snow, just took the photos from my back door.

I'm still using my phone for photos and I just can't seem to get a good, well-focused shot of these fabrics. This is about the best I can manage.

I'm working on quilting this and I'll have a finish to share later in the week. The cute sheep print is the backing. This will be a donation to Operation Shower.

In other news, I took the broken camera in to the well-known camera store in town. They don't do repairs there, they send them out. By sending it out I would be authorizing up to $200 in repairs plus the $20 shipping. They would call me if the repairs are over $200. This model sells used on EBay for $200. I can't justify the repair now. I've asked my son if I can "borrow back" my old camera that I gave him when I got the one that's now broken. He just uses his phone so he's fine with that. Hopefully he'll remember to bring it next times he comes for a visit. Meanwhile, I'll be making do with phone photos here on the blog for awhile.

  1. Oh wow, I can definitely understand not authorizing to send out a camera without having any idea how much money you could be putting into repairs. The snow looks like it made for a very cozy sew day.

  2. My son-in-law wanted his camera fixed for a bd present. I knew a gal who's husband repaired cameras .... except he had retired. And, basically they told me it wasn't worth the cost to repair most cameras. Not what I like to hear -- more throw away mentality. Bummer. So, I save and use scraps to compensate... LOL

  3. The only time we've ever tried to get a camera repaired was when My Guy's very expensive long range lens started acting up. It was under warranty, so they fixed that. With the new digital cameras comes a lot of electronics and I know from experience at work with our expensive instrumentation that the components on the circuit boards are only available for about 7 to 10 years. Beyond that time frame they don't have a way to replace or repair them.

  4. Cute little quilt!! and the camera - I am so sorry - thats such a tough decision.!

  5. That is a very cute quilt. Love the colors! Sorry about your camera. As Gilda Radner reminded us, "If it's not one thing, it's another!"
