So, as you can probably surmise from the title, no pictures until I can find the camera cord. I brought my dad's camera back from SD, and it uses the same cord as mine, so now I have 2 cameras that I can't load pictures from until I find the stupid cord! Very frustrating indeed.
Although I haven't been doing any sewing for the last three weeks, I did buy some fabric from the local area. I went to a wonderful shop in Hot Springs SD called Heartsong Quilts , and it is a wonderful place. Got some australian fabrics, as well as some scrap pieces. I also went to a place called The Quilt Place, in Custer, SD. If you ever are in the Black Hills of SD, they are 2 of the shops you would love to go to. There is a store called the Mistletoe Ranch and Quilt Corral located North of Hill City, but they are going out of business, the owner is retiring. The Prairieberry Winery next door is taking over their shop and enlarging. They have free winetasting, and yep, I have 4 bottles being shipped to me this week, in addition to 6 boxes from my dad's house. Lots of things that I couldn't see going to charity, or the garbage. I brought home one of the quilts I made him few years ago, couldn't find the other one. Also, an afghan I made him. When I got home last Saturday night, it hit me on the way from the airport that I will never see him again in this lifetime, but I know he is no longer in pain, and that he approved of the ceremony. I know this, because as the honor guard was folding the flag over his urn, his camera was turning on and off in my pocket, and it stopped the instant they were done. I know a lot of people would say that it was a fluke, etc, but I prefer to think it was his way of telling us that he was ok.
