I love to blog and it's been so frustrating for me to not be able blog with pictures.
My camera would NOT work, so today I decided I would take it apart....step by step. What did I have to lose?? Thought maybe it was some sand from when I went to the beach on vacation and I could just use some canned air and blow it out. I love to fix things and am one of those "do it yourself" type of gals. My Dad was a contractor and as a kid I was constantly following him around and learning to do things. I remember him giving me my own hammer to carry, and a small bucket to carry it in from place to place as I followed him while he was working.
Ok..back to the camera.....step by step.
* Find tiny, tiny screw driver........check.
* Lay down a towel on table....check.
* Remove 9 tiny, tiny screws....check.
* Put charged batteries in it....check.
* Take out SD card...check.
* Put SD card in computer to check pics....check.
What?? no pictures on card?? Got a card reading error??
* Find new SD card still in package.....check.
* Put new SD card in computer.....ok check.
* Put new SD card in camera.....turn on camera.....WORKED FINE!
* Put 9 tiny, tiny screws back in camera....check.
* Feel stupid....check.
I feel so stupid that I didn't check the SD card several weeks ago. DUH! I guess I didn't realize that they will wear out or quit working.......????
DO YOU HAVE A LOT OF UFO's??
Here's just a few of my UFO's that I have been sorting. I won't show you all of them as that is too embarrasing; I won't even count them...(tee hee!)
These are Birthday Blocks from a Tied Together Quilt Bee exchange we did several years ago, and I never put them together for a quilt. Each one of us chose our color choices and mine was pinks & greens.
This one is a four block Hawaiian Flowers quilt top I made when I was teaching at a LQS and we used the Quilt Smart technique.
Christmas quilt top finished, needs to be quilted. I just might try to get this one finished to enjoy it this year. This is another Tied Together Bee block exchange we did many years ago. The little kitty who is quilting that's Embroidery Redwork was my block I gave to everyone! The corner stones in the sashings have gold metallic thread embroidered jingle bells.
I have no idea what I was thinking or when I started these circles??? I found it in the bottom of the big plastic tub that is labeled UFO's. Ugly fabrics too!
My gosh! I don't know if I'll ever get this one finished. This one comes from about 12 years ago. JEEZ! I ran out of the white tone on tone I was using and was not able to find it anywhere.......too many years ago. I still have a bunch of the hexagons cut, so maybe there's still hope.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for my UFO's. One of these days I might get nerve enough to count them and tell everyone!.......No...No..on second thought, that's another embarrasing thing.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be posting regularly again now that my camera is "FIXED".......(tee! hee!)
