Coming out...thanks for all the chins

Hi! My name is James, that's my Mom hiding behind the jacket-

I'm coming out of the blogging closet. Here is an unfortunate picture of me and cousin Nancy in Charlotte. I am on the right with all the chins. Good Lord-this is the second best shot I could find and I might as well bite the bullet. The other shot is me, hiding behind my black suede jacket in an attempt to convey my horror at being photographed. The best thing about this shot is that my son's face is in it. The guy in yellow is my BIL Bob. That's enough family stuff for a while. I must now go and recover from the many other photographs of me that make me look like a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Yesterday I had no cable connection for the better part of the day. I got a lot of other things accomplished-so it wasn't a bad day all around. It's 12 degrees outside so I think I'll hang around inside today and try to finish up a couple of projects I've begun. I got all the rows of James's quilt sewed together yesterday and now I just need borders. He'd probably like to use it in this deep freeze we have fallen into.

I leave you with a shot of the last of the larger Amish type quilts that I did a couple of years ago-excuse the lint. Digital cameras are great but they sure show up every tiny tidbit. I had a full on shot of this but blogger is finished with me today. It was a no go for three attempts. Hope you are all staying warm and happy...

It's always fun to see the real blogger! Why don't you crop it and use it for your profile picture?

I think it's a good photo of you! Thanks for sharing it with us. It's always nice to be able to put a face with a name/blog. I know what you mean about photos though. I usually run when a camera comes anywhere near me!!

I like the photo! It's great to put a face to the person. Come on out!

There is a box in our garage labeled "Archeological photos from when we had only one chin."

I clicked a closeup of the feathered wreath--awesome!

Well, join my club -"The camera must be defective!!" In my mind I still have a 28 inch waist and real boobs.

It was fun to have a glimpse of the real Dee.

Bravo for the Real Dee-l! I look at my own photos and think, "Who IS that woman???"

Ditto the comments on the photos. It is nice to see who people are! I suppose I should get around to posting one of me...And, about the lint, it makes me feel at home! Only in my home, the quilts also have dog hair and threads I somehow can't see when trimming but that show up perfectly on photos. Beautiful quilt!
