Southern CA treasures

Found two great books on my Palm Springs trip.   One is "kitchen stitches" and the other "urban Scndinavian ".  After living in Denmark for a year, I love anything Scandinavian.   Kitchen stiches has a Great carry all for a crock pot..... So here's my delimia.

Got a call this week from a store in the Palm Springs area, the Kitchen stiches book is I want it?

Yes I want it but don't want to pay the crazy 8 percent tax.   Most times when I order online there is no tax, shipping to Oregon, the land of no sales tax.

Am I crazy to not want to pay an extra 8 perecent?   I don't mind paying is just the crazy tax.

I'm not really this stupid!

Here is a picture of an antique quilt I found when cleaning out my mother in law's house a few years ago.  She knew I loved quilts and never told me about this one...really sad.  It is quite fragile, faded and dirty.   Wish I knew the story behind this one.  This photo is from several years ago and is on my phone.

Now for the not stupid part...I took a picture of what is on the design wall a few minutes ago, on my IPad, to write this posting.   I can see the picture on my iPad but when I try to find it to post it doesn't appear anywhere.  It also appears in the photos on my iPhone.   Checked the photos and cameras settings on both devices and they are set alike. Then I took a photo wih my phone and can't see that one as I try to post!!

Anyone have any suggestions or comments?

Frustrating morning

Working on calm and peaceful thoughts this morning...this a stock photo from a project I did years is the only one I can get to upload into this the rest of the story...

  I know It has been months since I last posted....somehow I can connect to my blog on my iPad but not on my home desktop.  So today I  spent an hour trying to luck and result was more chest pain!  That is the story of my last seven months!  I usually don't whine about the negative things in my life but today is an exception. Sorry!   I prefer my desktop as that is where I store all my photos and don have the tiny picture issue.

In the last seven months, I have slowly been working on multiple projects making a little progress by working for 15 minutes a day then resting.  Hopefully I can add some pictures next.  Oh rats!   Just realized I don't have the right cord to go from iPhone to iPad!!!  Ok that is the next step so no pictures today.

So here is the list: (many of these were in block stages the last time I posted)
Mango tango-blocks together and borders on
Dr. Seuss 1- top done (2&3 are cut ready to sew
Autumn flannel leaves-blocks set into top and borders ready
Fall layer cake half square triangles--on the design wall  ready to sew together.

So my goal is to figure this all out over the weekend and post pictures next week!  Have a wonderful  weekend.
