I’m Back!

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

It’s been too long since I have posted here!  I’ve worked through  – or accepted that my computer is different now.  It seems to be doing most of what I need for it to do.

Also my camera issues.  I really don’t understand cameras so I paid for an hour of one on one instruction to help me to get the sharp photo that I needed for an upcoming book.  It did not help. After struggling with f-stops and other buttons and dials, my contact person at the book told me to use the focus ring and that certainly helped.  Why did my paid instructor not tell me that??? Maybe it is just so basic everyone else already knows?  Anyway the resulting pictures were not perfect but so much better, they were acceptable. I am thinking that when Fall Semester starts up, I may take a basic photography class. It can’t hurt!

I have finished the machine quilting on the Kansas Flint Hills landscape and I am quite pleased with how it came out.  I have had it on the design wall for a few days now,  and I have decided that I will finish it with a faced edge, because I want to emphasize the vast openess of the scene and not have it confined by a binding.

I have received word that “After The Storm” has been accepted to IQF in Houston this fall, so  that is exciting!!
