What's happening...

I have a friend whose daughter is expecting her first child...this is going to be a quick rag quilt for her.  Some of these belong to the front and some to the back.  I got them cut today.
This is the focus fabric.  We don't know if the baby is a boy or a I thought this could be for boy or girl.
I got a new toy today.  A Canon SX700--shown here.  I can done tell you I am going to love it for taking pictures of quilts and fabrics.  First of all, the lens will open out wide enough till I can get the full quilt easily.  Secondly, its autofocus seems to work wonderfully.  I know there will be things I don't like probably, but I wanted it to fit in my purse to take shopping or to flea markets, etc.

The shots above are taken with it as well as the following shots.
Roger is busy in his shop today.  He has been out there most of the day.
Do you see the visitor?  This is cropped a tiny bit.  Not much.
Puss has just been hanging out...I did have to distract her from the goldfinch earlier.
It's been a beautiful day for hanging out clothes...I have did two kind of small loads.  Too much for one load, so just did them in two loads.

Cute fabric for the quilt.
Loved the shot of Puss, such a sweet looking cat.
Nice shot of the bird visitor too & your hubby working away.
I love clothes fresh off a clothes line, they smell so good.

I like everything about this post. You have a pretty cat. Goldfish can be so tempting. I can smell the freshness of clothes on the line. Looks like a nice breeze. The goldfinches do like their coneflowers!
