The Garmin Lady

I love any electronic doodad that comes down the pike. One thing I never thought I needed was a Garmin GPS. When I flew to Columbus, Ohio, I rented a car and drove to Wisconsin the next day. During the week I drove to many places and had no idea how to get there. I have a smart phone but don't really like the GPS apps so I broke down and bought a Garmin. I am now in love with the Garmin lady. She takes me every where I want to go and I have free map updates for life. Does it get any better? I can't believe it has taken me this long to get one.

When I got home I had three separate piece: The Garmin screen, the charger and hook, and the sand bag mount that sits on the dash board or in my case, the passenger seat. Now I needed a neat container to store the pieces.

Yes, the screen is in an old sock. The sandbag mount is brilliant

This is a piece of Laura Kemshall's fingerprint fabric. Doesn't it look like a desert landscape?

Folded in half and ironed

 Opened with some batting

This may not look like it but this variegated thread worked perfectly for the quilting.
