Where, oh where has my camera cord gone?* And a few other choice items, too. We have settled into our temporary digs - a two bedroom apartment that is serving not only as a living space but a storage unit as well. We have taken up residence in one bedroom and the living room. The rest of the space is holding ALL of our worldly belongings (minus the things we already know didn't arrive in our shipment *argh*)
Here you can see that the garage is stuffed to the gills with only a narrow aisle to pass through. The second bedroom looks the same. A few boxes are even serving as occasional tables, artfully draped with quilts to disguise what the really are.
I had BIG plans to use this time of temporary residence to get some quilting done. HA! After carefully packing projects and associated supplies, it came to me that in a box somewhere (refer to photo above) is my iron. I wouldn't even know where to begin.
That brought me back to quilting the hexagons. Plenty of work there to keep me busy, if only I had not lost my thimble. You never know just how attached you are to your thimble until it is gone. It really was THE perfect thimble. I have purchase five different replacements over the course of the last three weeks. While one is a suitable substitute, I will continue to look for that perfect fit again.
So my days are mostly filled with getting outside and exploring some of my favorite old haunts and introducing Daisy to a lot of new places. The weather has been just splendid almost every day.
Several times a week we go to the beach for a nice walk. The sound of the waves is soothing to me. The squirrels grazing on the dunes makes Daisy feel at home.
We spotted these Sweet Peas growing in a front yard garden. If only you could smell them, too. They are my favorite flower, a lot of special memories are tied to these little beauties.
Don't these guys look a little bored? Maybe they could come down and help me find my missing items. A win/win for all.
*today's photos brought to you courtesy of my cell phone camera . . . the cord will show up eventually
