New Camera,,and a Quilt Show

A few weeks back it was my DHs' birthday,,, so he bought me a present. A lovely little camera that I had been looking at lately! So,, what do you do when you get a new camera,,, you have to take pictures,, a lot of them!

It has several 'frames' for that 'special' shot,, and the zoom is brilliant. The picture of my grandson was on a shelf 10 feet away.

All the above pictures were taken at Burnham-On-Sea.

Last Sunday I went to a small quilt show held by the Weston Quilters, in Weston-Super-Mare. I say small, but there was over 100 quilts on show.
Coffee and Cupcakes by Marth Orr

Out Of The Blue by Judith Hubbard
Snow Family by Jenny Lester
 There were five trade stands at this litte show, two of my favourites,,,Farne Designs and White Cottage Country Crafts,,the creators of the Batik Firecracker quilt.
 And a little treat for me. WHSmiths have different magazines in their stores. The Weston store had quite a few that I don't see in my local one.
I am on holiday from work for two weeks,,,, so hopefully time for creations!!!

Bits and Pieces

Photo heavy post,,

Homemade sockblockers from a pair of metal coat hangers,
Finding the hangers was a little difficult, until I called in to the local dry cleaners!!

Remember these,,,

Well, I entered them in to my local village craft show, and I won First Prize for the quilt and a Second for the mitts.
No actual prizes, but nice to win!

Portland Bill Lighthouse,

The last photo is my DH,, waiting for me when I went up the lighthouse. He doesn't do heights.

Cake making in the bread machine,,

Car boot bargain,,,
Couldn't resist this little box of goodies,, and what was inside??,,,
I have yet to find a new home for all of this as the box was broken.

And lastly,,, in a farm not too far from here,,
