On Dasher! On Dancer! En Provence!

"Will you buy my hair?" asked Della.
"I buy hair," said Madame. "Take yer hat off and let's have a sight at the looks of it."
Down rippled the brown cascade.
"Twenty dollars," said Madame, lifting the mass with a practised hand.
"Give it to me quick," said Della.

Every so often when I turned on my camera, I'd get a card error.  Time to get another card!

Oh my how things have changed!  The last time I bought a card (5-6 years ago??) it held 2GB; on the other hand, the card that came with the camera I bought a year ago is 16GB.  When I went to get the new one (Costco), I didn't even see  a 16GB card, the lowest was 32GB!

Just look at the packaging - why do you need a large 12 x 18" cardboard to hold a tiny little 1 x 2" inch square??

Who knows what, anyway!

With Part 4, I think we've just about reached the halfway point in the Quiltville En Provence mystery.  Don't quote me, though!

We have to do 80 of the triangle in a square units; I cut enough purple wings to make 40.

In going through my purples, somehow the pieces seem to be fewer than I thought, not as many of the dark fabrics in the mix.

Oh well!

I need to cut 10 more from neutrals.  They look like snowflakes, don't they?

I probably shouldn't have said the "S" word, they're calling for freezing rain and bad driving conditions until around 11 a.m., and my guild's meeting is today at 10.

I got an apple pie from Costco for the party; I'd hate to eat that entire pie by myself!

Sew forth and sew on


  1. Oh darn -- a whole pie for yourself......lookin' good there my friend.

  2. I hope the bad weather stays away! But then again, that pie would be a bit of a consolation, eh?
    I only got a couple of pointy bits made yesterday for this week's clue. Must get busy!

  3. THe large container for your memory card is to deter theft. Sad but true. We create a LOT of trash d/t theft...sad statement on society.
