Sometimes at Show and Tell I have battery or camera issues or articles are put away too soon and I miss photographing them. More than once I have gone into peoples bags to find the items and take photos (with permission of course, lol). This time, I missed Randie's tea towels and her knitting. My show and Tell for most months is this Blog!
