Things Don's Always Go As Planned (Deployment Project #33)

Sometimes, you have a good plan, but things just don't work out the way you planned.  This would be one of those times.  I've been planning a trip to Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin for awhile now. 

The original plan was to leave Sunday after church - - then the head cold struck with a vengence. 

Plan B - leave Monday morning - - -then more snow struck. 

Plan C - leave Tuesday morning - - we did....now we are sitting in a hotel room in the middle of nowhere in West Virginia waiting on the snow to stop and the roads to be clear - - it's not looking good.  The weather man says they are supposed to have up to 12" tonight.
Here's the current view from my hotel room.

 The good news for you is that I can catch up on my blog - - I've been working on some projects, but just haven't had time to post them. 

The bad news for me is that I'm sitting here at the mercy of the weather with two kiddos in a small hotel room with no access to even a restraunt.  It's also mighty cold in this room - - I have the heat on high, but I'm still sitting here in my winter coat and the kids are huddled in blankets because we are cold.  Hmmm.... wonder how all this is going to work out! 

See, their going crazy already!!!
My sewing machine is out in the truck, so I guess if I get too bored, I could run out there and grab it - - -wouldn't it be funny, me sitting in my hotel room sewing away?

This first project is a really simple but super useful one!  It seems everytime I use my camera, I lose the lens cap - - I set it down somewhere in my excitement and then forget where I put it.  This handy little strap with a lens cap pocket solves this problem!

I made a basic "tube" with my fabric and added a little pocket with a velcro closure to it and taadaa! Problem Solved!!

It is hard to get a picture of it in use since it is attached to my camera - - but the good part is, that in our hotel room has a wall of mirrors, so I did my best to get a good picture of it on the camera strap.
you see me wearing my winter coat - - yup, that's how cold our room was - - I am now writing from a different room.   They moved us because our heater was broken in the last one!!  good times!
