My Mum-in-Law’s Disposable Camera

My mother-in-law knows I love cameras and film. She was cleaning out in preparation for a yard sale when she found an old Kodak disposable camera that was ready for developing. She gave it to me along with her old Kodak Brownie 44A.

I sent the disposable camera to Old School Photo Lab. Only about half the frames produced anything recognizable. I think the camera went through the wringer over the years! The expiration date on the camera was sometime in 2005, and it appears the photos are from as far back as 2003. To my surprise there was a photo of me in there!

There were a couple of other photos from a trip to Reno, Nevada. Wendell and I met up in Reno with my mum-in-law and my brother- and sister-in-law and had a mini-vacation.

I believe the last photo was taken over the Truckee River in Reno.

Stay tuned for photos from the Kodak Brownie 44A.


Llamas and Other Critters at the Shepherd’s Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival


Well hello there!

In May I spent a Saturday morning checking out the Shepherd’s Harvest Sheep and Wool Festival. This was my second year for the festival and it’s a blast! There are lots of cool vendors, cute animals, and interesting demonstrations. It rained the day before and the herding dogs did their demo in mud, but luckily the rain held off on Saturday and the temperature was perfect.

Here are some highlights:

A New Yarnbomb by Zsa Zsa (aka GuerillaKnitter)

For more than seven years my friend Zsa Zsa, aka Guerilla Knitter, worked a little on crocheting one of those old-school granny square throws. You know, the ones with the colorful centers surrounded by black borders?

Well, she went to visit her parents and saw a hideous phone company equipment cover in their otherwise beautiful backyard. Something had to be done!

The size of the piece was already very close to the size she needed for the cozy. She attached a couple more rows to the afghan and quickly crocheted up a circular piece for the top and sewed the whole thing together. It looks great! If the phone company needs access, they can just pull the cozy off. Goodbye hideous equipment, hello yarnbomb!
