A Bummer

I'm pouting again! Today when I was over to the Carriage House for the setting up of our quilt show that starts tomorrow, I took over one hundred pictures. My camera usually takes wonderful shots. When I transferred them to my computer, I was so disappointed! Most of them were fuzzy and not pretty at all.
I did come up with some good ones - maybe thirty or so. However, something was out of whack. I actually think it may have been the battery and I had another one in my purse but it still showed on the screen that there was still power in it. It took a while for the shutter to snap some of the time so maybe that was it. However, here is a little representation of what went on today. Above, the room all ready for the quilts.

As the quilts were checked in, they were put in the appropriate piles on the floor awaiting the keen eyes and flawless placement by Janna, who has been directing the hanging of the quilts ever since we have had our shows. Janna has a knack for putting things together in such a pleasing way!
As she looked through the quilts, they were taken to the area where they would hang. This looks jumbled, but no quilts were harmed in this step!
Another very important area is our bazaar! Tons of great stuff - the girls made things to sell, brought books, magazines and FABRIC. Here is Amanda, our youngest member and a sweetie, going through the fabric bundles and getting like priced bags together. She had a buddy helping her, too, and I am so sorry I can't remember her name. Don't forget I am old!!
Now, girls, since I am not going to be at the show this weekend, please take your cameras and take more pictures if you would. Somehow we can get them on my computer so we will have a better record than what I ended up with. It's better than nothing, but there are so many beautiful quilts there. I am hoping my camera works better for the weekend with my family! (Click to enlarge)

don't you just hate it when your camera does not cooperate?! Can't wait to see some of the ones that did turn out....

How perfectly amazing! I once lived in a house which had a carriage house--but it was MUCH smaller than this! (grin) going to be joining us for Postcard Friendship Friday???? We'd LOVE to have you!

I completely identify with camera woes! I recently traded my new-ish camera with my son for my older, reliable camera that I had given him, and wouldn't you know it? He's figuring out all the new stuff that eluded me. Grumble, grumble. ; )
