and I learned a couple new things today--
isn't it great when one learns new things about something that one has been using for awhile?????
One thing was about 'Pink Betty'

Today was my friend Anne's day to come--
she had brought me a 1/4" sewing foot,
so we went in to try it out on the machine--
it did fit--or would have if I had known what I was doing--
but to back up here a bit--I said this machine I was unable to reposition the needle--
but--this is what I learned--
Anne showed me where it was--it's a dial on top of the machine--
and it works great--so with some adjusting we got the machine to do a perfect--
yep, perfect quilter's 1/4 inch--
and now I don't need so much messy tape--
and here is some blocks I did this afternoon on 'her'--
Can you guess what I am working on and with what line of fabric????
and I mean these babies came out perfect--
I am one very happy camper!!!!

And later this afternoon when I was playing with the 'big boy' camera again--
I did learn a couple more things on operating it--!!!!
so here is some more photos for you to enjoy--
My first flower to bloom in my garden--
Can you believe these--there was not even buds on here a couple days ago!!!
decided you needed another 'clearer' picture for you reading pleasure!!!!
and look who came to great me----
My 'duck' fans--
and here is some close ups of them--
He is just soooo beautiful/handsome!!!
It looked like he was standing guard while his 'wife' was searching for bugs!!!
I did not need a long scope for these pictures--I could of reached down and petted them--
that is how happy they are with my photo talent!!!!!
but I did use it on this photo--I was standing at the end of the pier and this looks out at the length of the lake--
and here is the stone wall to my right--
I still have not walked on this--
I need someone to come and hold my hand while I do it the first time!!!

Well--that's all from this reporter/photographer's desk for tonight!!!
Have a great 'stitchy' kind of day--
Guess who?????

  3. The 1/4 " is definitely a favourite! Pretty blocks, Di.

    I twiddled some knobs on my camera and had to get my son to help me put it back to "normal" ....

    Cool photos! We went to our county park and I saw a swan in the bay!
