The Race Is On?

Even though I blame my camera for lots of things, I love it. It's a simple, compact, point and click camera... It has a gazillion different settings but I only use the safest... automatic! OK it does rebel from time to time by taking silly blurred shots and unwanted ceiling pictures... but I am able to forgive it. Disaster struck yesterday... I caught my lovely camera strap on the kitchenette door handle which ripped it out of my hand and dropped it to the floor... it's broken... Helpful Hubby Dave had purchased it for me back in March 2008 so that I could start this blog. I was very much attached to it. When I got home I had no option but to purchase a replacement, ASAP... on line, the only way I had time for... have you seen how many cameras there are availabubble?? My goodness... I had to call My Lilly for assistance... I asked her to find a camera exactly like the one I broke... she's very good, she found one... I wanted a pretty colour but I wasn't about  to pay an extra £20 just for that option... it's ordered and will be plain silver... now I wait for it to be delivered... I hope they appreciate how fast I need them to get it here... Blogging without pictures? No thank you!
Just before the camera kissed the floor goodnight I had taken a couple of pictures...

Penelope Baskerville was at the workshop on Saturday and she's been stitching at home ever since. It gets a little tricky joining the tiny strips but she did a great job. As you can see, Penelope used clever Mr. Black for the inner border and he turned all the lights on to give an even bigger WOW
Morning Judith also stitched at home, continuing in class, carefully and precisely, she finished and was able to add the first border... it was tricky choosing which colour to use, settling finally on this stunning blue... looks fabulous.
That's all the pictures I have till the new camera arrives... 
The race is on Mr Postman... 
1, 2, 3... Go, 
I'm waiting!!

Sorry to hear about your camera, I do hope that the postie makes it out to you. Lovely bargellos, especially the top one.

Keep your fingers crossed, I ordered something last Thursday and it arrived today, so the Royal Mail has finally caught up with the snowy weather, so your camera should arrive soon. Good Luck. Chatty Cathy
