New batteries needed

Whew the camera batteries have run out, and mine also. I didn't realise how much there was to tracing all those stitcheries. I am more than 1/2 way through and have started on the house, for the second time around. I went to an exhibition of scarves and seeing it is winter I am wistfully looking at the knitting needles and all that soft warm fuzzy wool.

I certainly couldn't trace all of them at once..it makes my neck hurt..I wait until I've caught up on stitching then I trace three more...I still have to do the Orchard and the bird bath again then I'll be through...I don't know what kind of battery your camera uses, mine goes through them pretty quickly, AAA and I have some charged and ready at all times.

DH bought the batteries that take 680 photos yesterday, so I am up and running again and the house is nearly finished.

It is fantastic that you will make one more quilt with the same stitcheries. But the house is the hardest one to come through. So just go on.
