February 2011 Archives

February 2, 2011


So I'm taking a little online class through Willette and yesterday she talked about indoor photography with no flash. I tried it with Kid Starfish and this is what I got:

f/4.8, 1/125, ISO200

A good start but lots to learn. I'm enjoying learning some of the specifics of shooting in manual mode.

This is a problem.

I'm making a gift for a dear friend. We lived together in college and have kept in touch ever since and she's having baby #3 - her first boy! I'm making a quilt. The problem is... the more progress I make, the harder it is to think about letting it go. I love this one! If she wasn't such an awesome person this one might be living here with me!

I started with a regular 9-patch:

The I cut it into fourths and turned the blocks for a disappearing 9-patch:

I made several of these and sewed them into a strip:


I love how the disappearing 9-patch looks so much more complicated than it is. It looks like I cut large squares, small squares and rectangles doesn't it?

I'm planning to get something in aqua and having this panel being off center going from top to bottom. I love it so far!

Ready for the Quilter and 52Photos

The top is ready for the quilter. I'm not quite sure who will do it. The person who did Sophie's quilt last summer was fantastic but I'm not sure of her timeline right now. Without further ado:

Sorry for the wrinkly ground it's on. It's the best I could do on no time and no help!

Closer shot:

I love this top and now it needs a name. There's no pattern. I made it up as I went. Come on, crafty people! Think of something good!

The 52Photos prompt last week was "morning". As a third grade teacher, this is my scene most mornings:

52 Photos - Up

This week's prompt was "up". I took this photo from my school's playground while on recess duty. We share a parking lot with this church and I've always liked it. (You can click for biggie!)
