I've Got The Blues!

Auditioning! Oh, I think they will be perfect!

Rita's Flying Geese - colour selection as above 'blue' - maybe I will get this whole quilt out of my stash! Maybe I will have to solicit some help with the rotary cutter. I so admire the simplicity of Rita's quilts, she is a true artist and knows when finished is finished - do you know what I mean? Check out her straight line quilting - so beautiful!
Again, my best little friends have spent the day with me - how lucky can a girl get! I must admit the boredom is setting in a bit - no, no, must not let it! I've had little rays of sunshine here and there and it doesn't take a lot to brighten my day! Lots of lovely fat-quarter gifts and little surprises - thank you all!

I'm on a mission - long story - the pic of the little angel I showed you before I went to hospital is being enlarged and made into a canvas - seems like I'm not the only one who loves it so much! My mission? - I badly want an SLR digital camera - Canon? - I would appreciate ANY comments or advice - a whim and a luxury? Well, maybe! DH has become The Opposition!
Happy weekend!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Your blues look wonderful all stacked together. Sorry, I can't help with the camera but will be interested to see what you end up with. It seems that the best pictures in blogland are taken with an SLR. I am amazed at the quality of some of the photos I see. Have you seen Lizzie's blog ( She has taken the most amazing photos at the zoo with her camera.

Lurline, I love those blues, it's a long time since I made a blue quilt and I do love them so! They are simply adorable. Wish I was closer, I would happily come and rotary for you, what bliss working with blues :o)
As you know I use a Nikon DSLR and I love it, I know others who swear by their Canons but I believe Olympus brought out a nice little SLR a year or two ago. A little smaller than the big Nikons and Canons but still with interchangable lenses. Perhaps a compromise with DH? Check it out, Olympus is a really good brand...
Have a great week
