Stuck at home……but with film

I’m kind of stuck at home these days. Not only is it very hot for Portland, in the 90’s, but it seems I’ve pulled a muscle off the old ribs and it takes time to heal. I’m not very happy because I was just getting back into my exercise program after a broken foot followed by plantar fasciitis. Not much I can do. Getting older really stinks.

So no trips to the beach for a while. I have more quilts to hit the floor to baste but can’t do that either. So guess I’ll keep cutting out more and sewing them together and then I’ll have a pile to baste.

Thought I’d share some film photos from around the house and neighborhood since this will be my point of view for a while.

Hope all my American readers have a happy 4th of July and to my British friends…I love you too.
