Rambling in and about the cabin...

Photobucket">

The birthday month is still in effect. My favorite lovely presents are a new tripod and a new camera bag. I am a lucky girl.

Internet connecting has been difficult making for frustrating writing. The weather settles over the lake and the connection doesn't stay connected. So now I am trying Blogpress. I am going to ramble a bit because I am experimenting.







I would like to be able to edit pictures and there is probably a way. All I know is that I am spoiled by all the tools available when I am online.

I got 4 quilts back from my quilter Lynn and will be sending one to her this week.



Some Dr. Seuss fabric found its way into my stash and a quilt for my grandson was created.




I read Lynn's blog Happier Than a Pig in Mud and we made a Pickle Pot. Not sure how to enter a link with program so just look in my sidebar and you will find her and a link to Miz Helen.

Well, we are off for a birthday breakfast and then just a relaxing day. I hope the rain stops as I would like to photograph the quilts outside.

Happy birthday and have a lovely lunch. The quilts are gorgeous and lucky grandson to receive the Dr Seuss one. I love the first picture, how did you do that?

I am sending you some sunshine, it is the hottest day so far this year in the UK ;-))

We are out to lunch too as it is the last day of Phil's holiday and I haven't been shopping since coming back!!

I will have you a birthday toast for you with orange juice!!

Enjoy, Jackie in Surrey, UK

I'm glad to hear that you still celebrating!! I've been looking at camera bags and would like to know what kind you got. One came with my Canon but it is rather large and unwieldy to tote along while traveling. Also wonder what size/kind of tripod.

Best,
Bonnie

You are a busy quilter, Carol. I love all the bright colorful fabrics you use. I know your grandson will love his Dr. Seuss blankie. Nice mosaic.

Glad your enjoying your birthday Carol, we had a great time with Jackie & her husband on my birthday.
I'm going over to Lynn's place now to find out what a Pickle Pot is, I'm intrigued!
Have a wonderful week, my dear.

Monday should be good for outdoor photography! That quilt for your grandson looks adorable. Hope that this weather straightens up and flies right.

I love that quote about the negatives! Hadn't heard that one. And the fabrics here are just adorable.
