The Day Before...

I am without a camera.  Not sure if it's the batteries or the camera.  I use rechargeable batteries...put two newly charged ones in my camera and the screen read "battery life exhausted" or something to that effect.  So, the batteries are either not making good contact, or the battery charger is no longer working.  In the meantime, I hope to use Julie's camera.

I wasn't able to write the 'interesting' posts I camera, no words.  I can't do one without the other for what I wanted to write.  ohwell.  Someday.
I am back to work today after having 4 days off.  I had a nice four days all by myself.  Well, Tag was here with me.  Julie was off taking care of business.  And, as usual, I didn't get as much done as I thought I might.  I did find out that there are some things that work out better in my head than in reality...won't be trying them anytime soon.
Before my camera batteries exhausted themselves, I was able to take 2 photos of blocks I finished this weekend.  

The first is another swoon block.  Block 5 of 9 for me.  I love these big (24.5 inches) blocks.

 The second...this is the Ohio Star block...the 3rd block of 12 in the hand-pieced quiltalong.   This block is 6.5 inches.

Well, are you ready for it?  Tomorrow is the big day!  The big 6 - 0 day!  As for me?  I am as ready as I ever will be. 

ohyeah...and let's not forget about the giveaway!  It starts tomorrow!  Be sure to come back to see what  the giveaway this time, I am still adding to the pile.  

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."   Jeremiah 29:11

I have had that happen with cameras, just don't want to work anymore. Hope it is something minor, but at least you were able to show us two of your beautiful blocks.

I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow and have special plans.

I am a bad sister. Your birthday card and gift is not in the mail yet!!! Soon.
I want to just mention that the first block shown here is gorgeous.
Also for me, the font you are using is hard to read. Just FYI
Love you. Joyce
