Frustrating!

Well, they've had my camera, and my money, for two weeks now!  How long does it take to replace a broken screen?  However, some stitching has been happening. I just can't show you without a camera!
I've been working on a small quilt for the Quilting Arts Calendar contest 'Feeling Pet-ty!'. Probably can't show you a photo of that anyway if I want to enter the competition.
Also finished the next small quilt for our challenge. The theme this time was 'My Collection'. This was a hard one because like most of us I have a few collections!!
I'm also stitching a found piece of table linen for the found,stitched and dyed sewing circle.
Because a blog is a bit boring without a photo, here is the front and back of a moth on the window that I took a few months ago. Hard to believe it's the same moth. Click on photos to see more detail.

So I've been keeping busy. I just want my camera back!

No camera!

I dropped my camera on a rocky path at Uluru and cracked the screen. I could still take photos using the viewfinder but couldn't see anything on the screen. After a bit of research I decided it was cheaper to get the screen fixed than to buy a new camera. (Both options expensive!)  So, no camera for a couple of weeks. I miss it already! These are a couple of photos from our little holiday. Beautiful ghost gums in the courtyard of the hotel and a lizard seen on one of our walks. He was about 12 inches long. He's disguised quite well on the leaf litter.
