Exciting News!!!

I think I mentioned earlier here that I lost a camera card a few months ago. It was a 2 GB card and I knew I had photos of my granddaughter's 1st and 2nd birthdays, my mother's 80th birthday, Easter and just a lot of photos that were precious to me. I dropped the card between the console and the passenger seat. My husband and I searched and searched. We even vacuumed that area and surrounding areas with a new vacuum bag, tore open the bag and still - no card. So I had the idea of taking my vehicle to a body shop, let them take the passenger seat out and see if the card was under there somewhere. My husband took it to the body shop for me on Monday (this week) and voila, it was there! I cannot tell you how happy this made me and it was so much fun looking over the 459 images (!) that were on that card. So here's one I wanted to share. These are flannel baby blankets that I hemstitched on my machine, appliqued the cute little giraffes, and then crocheted the edging for a baby gift for twin boys. They are in Jackson, MS, now so I could not photograph them again. They're so soft and cuddly and I just love the cute little giraffes. Hope you enjoy baby things. I love them.

I am glad that you found it! It would be so horrible to lose something that precious for all of the memories. I bet it was fun to go back and look through some of the pictures you had forgotten!:)

The giraffes are very cute!

Oh my gosh. 459 images? Birthdays and special occasions? I would have been freaking out until I got to that card and not a happy person to live with until then. :) So good you've got it now and can retrieve all those dear memories.

The blankets are adorable. I love the crotched edge and the giraffes. Sweet, sweet gifts.

Hi! I just wanted to thank you for commenting over on my library blog. I don't get many "hits" over there so it's exciting! And I haven't read any James Patterson as you've noted. No reason other then maybe titles & reviews (of his fiction) haven't struck a nerve & no one has strongly recommended him to me? But, Against Medical Advice sounds intriguing & is on my list for must reads. Thank you!
