Every thing should have a home.......

and go there at the end of each day..................

I reorganized the studio to make it more workable..........  The rule is to limit the number of projects I can have ongoing at any one time..........  LOL..............

Several years ago (about 8) Lem got me a Cannon Power Shot camera..........  It came with a case, an extra battery, a battery charger and an extra card..............  I kept the charger and extra battery and card in the case...........  It usually hung from the door knob in the studio..........  During the reorganization it has gone on walk about.............  I have spent the better part of two days looking for it..........  I have had two sleepless nights trying to remember where it could be.............


If only I had put it where it lived after the last use............  I would not be looking for it now......  Such a simple concept but not one I seem to be able to follow...........  Therefore I spend part of my life looking for just where I put something down last..........  The upside of this that while looking for the offender I often find something else that I had forgotten I had.............   Perhaps that isn't such a bad thing........



I should locate it some time today because I finally gave up and ordered another charger and two more battery packs.........  The batteries I had were needing to be charged more often so perhaps that isn't a bad thing.................


The last three pictures I was able to take were of a few finishes and one new start..........Yes, I do know that was against the rule but they are my rules and I can ignore them..............

I finished three more fluffy scarves.........  All for friends.................


I finished eight Christmas Tree napkins..........  Such fun they were to make..........  The link to the instructions are HERE


The next finish was a candle mat..............I made this model and 24 kits........... Each kit had the pattern and the four white sections with the embroidery all ready done...............  I do love my guild and I enjoy sharing...

It was also good to get away from the house for a few hours..............

The pattern for this quick and easy to make gift can be found HERE..........

 




Oh and another thing...........  Stopped by to see Georgina and found that she needed a little momentum in getting this Streak of Sunshine quilt off the ground........I got it cut out and started putting it together.......

She will add the borders and finish it...............

  1. I too had to order another camera.charger for that very same reason. Darn frustrating but I've been this way a very long time. You sound like a sister of the soul to me.

  2. Yes, the charger and battery will show up as soon as the new ones arrive. Thanks for the links. I've seen those napkins at craft shows, and always wanted to try making them.
