Aaahh, the lost is found!

Well, how is it that things are found in places where it's obvious they would be, but somehow weren't found before? Such is the saga of the lost camera. I found it last night in such a logical place, but no, I didn't find it until we had ordered a new one. The new one will arrive today or tomorrow and we will trek to Costco and humbly ask for a refund, as the lost is no longer lost.

This is the next row added to my Mariner's Compass. I printed out the foundations for the triangles from EQ6, and love how they turned out. I could never achieve the precision without the paper. The cornerstones are Birds in the Air (I think it's called) blocks, also from EQ6. The lovely blue strips at the top are painter's tape, holding the quilt top to the wall.

How 'bout those peonies? They are (or were) so beautiful this year. Unfortunately, they don't last long. We did enjoy them though.


  1. So glad you found your camera and hope you are able to get your refund without too much hassle. Sounds like something that would happen to me.

    Your Mariner's Compass is just stunning! How many more borders..or is this it? It's fabulous!!

  2. Yay! So glad to hear that your camera is no longer in the land of the lost!

    LOVE your Marnier's Compass! That has always been one of my favorite patterns and yours is gorgeous!

  3. Isn't it amazing that everything lost is always found in the last place you look! Think about that! Love the Mariner's Compass.

  4. Yeah! I get it! That's the way my search's usually wind up too. But hey, you really can't have to many cameras.
    Donna that hibiscus in your header is absolutely breathtaking!!

    You are doing such a great job on your MC. Can't wait to see what you've planned next.

  5. Your compass is gorgeous and I applaud you for doing that circular flying geese strip.

  6. I've just loved seeing the photos of your Mariner's Compass, it's a bit like a mystery, wondering what comes next. It's gorgeous.

    Cameras are a lost case at my home. Hubby's little one is lost now so he's borrowing mine sometimes when he's repairing farm equipment. (He takes a photo before he takes the machines apart so it can be put together correctly) Glad you found yours.

  7. Your Mariner's Compass is wonderful!

    It's one of my someday quilts.
