I have been trying to post! However-my camera has been MIA. I've been in a frantic state about it until I finally realized that I left it in a different city at my grandparents house when we went to their 50 year anniversary party. Phew! My sister is picking it up and meeting me halfway tonight, so I'll be back in action tomorrow. I wanted so badly to debut the patterns as I had promised, but without my camera I haven't been able to take the few final pictures needed. We're slated to do this in the morning so all will be revealed soon. :)
Since I didn't have any pictures, I was going to indulge in a tag from Amelia who is having picture posting issues on her blog. But now the post where she explained it all is gone! Is anyone else out there having picture/post issues with their blogs? I know it had to do with a book so I will say that the last book I read was "The Host" by Stephanie Meyer. (Funny side story here-I was chatting with Joanna the last day of market and told her I was anxious to pick up the book and read on the way home. She asked what it was about and I started telling her about the vampire love phenomenon-remember how I said you sound dumb talking about it? Well she just started laughing at me and I couldn't help but chime in-almost to the point of tears. There we were, in the middle of miles of fabric and patterns cackling about vampires and body snatchers. It's good to have friends.) The book wasn't quite what I was expecting, but I did finish it and that's a feat lately!
So I've had a hard time figuring out what to post this week with no camera! Then I decided I would share some non-sewing pictures from Oregon. Talk about beauty. My creative, green loving soul doth soar. Thank you for the tips and recommendations on places to check out-you guys have given me the information I really wanted that you can't get from a travel book! We're planning a trip back there possibly in the fall to really take a good long look around before deciding on a spot. We're lucky enough to not have to have our jobs mandate where we live so we're going to take a good long look around and find the perfect place. And drag Amber and Brian along with us. And my family. And anyone else who wants to come live somewhere gorgeous. Speaking of Amber-if you want to see what I would have posted this week if I had a camera go read her last post. It's identical to everything we've been up to here.
These pictures were all taken at Multnomah Falls in case you were wondering! I just love how these flowers are growing out of a rock wall. I felt like such a tourist taking pictures of this kind of thing, but I guess I kind of was. Can't wait until that kind of thing is normal to me.
So I'll be back soon with that pattern debut I promised! And the website is looking spiffy and will be up and running soon too. Soon soon soon..
