No Pictures...*sigh*

I could weave all kinds of stories of the fabric creations I've been working on...including some with woven fabric.  But this might be all fabrication, as I have no way to document said work.  I can't find my camera.


While I always have it at hand, I'm constantly setting it down and having to look for it.  This time, I seem to have misplaced it permanently.  I've been searching for 3? 4? days, and have yet to find it.

I remember taking pictures out at the walnuts, of the nuts hidden among the leaves on the ground.  I've been gleaning on a daily basis (sans today), and have some quilt ideas percolating as a result of the experience.  But said images were not downloaded.  Perhaps I lost the camera amongst the leaves?

I don't think so.  The last time I really remember holding it was when I took pictures of a cute blue postcard with some red-streaked fishies swimming across it.  It was a birthday card for a friend on the other side of the country.  Somehow between the outdoor photo shoot and the computer I lost the camera.

I told the maids (I admit it, I'm spoiled twice a month) to look for it, but to no avail.  I've looked under the bed, thinking Pixel took it, but no luck.  I've wandered through the backyard, searching for flashes of red - perhaps Scruffy (nee Homeless) buried it?  The reason I bought a red camera was so that I wouldn't lose it.  Or so that I could find it, each time I lost it.

Ollie ollie oxen, free free free!!  Come out, come out, wherever you are!!


I suspect that the next time I see my camera, if I see my camera, it will have been run over by a tractor and ground into the earth. 

I guess it's time to buy a new one.  Lucky me.

You need to pray to St. Anthony - the saint of or for lost things. I think you're supposed to say,
Tony, Tony look around, something's lost and can't be found.

I'm not Catholic so I'm sure there is more to it. But it sometimes works.

Sounds like me and my cell phone. Of course, I am not particularly fond of cell phones, so that might be a reason it gets left behind on a fairly regular basis. But a camera? No, I never lose that.

Hope you find yours.

I like the St Anthony' s prayer. I think I will try that on my TV remote for my sewing room TV. :)
