I really did have good intentions concerning this blog, but I have not done too well with keeping up lately!
Now that the Seasonal Palette piece is done, I have had to submit photos for publication in the book that they are going to do. My photos were not deemed good enough so I have spent considerable time improving my skills in that area. Over a year ago, for my birthday, my husband bought me a new camera which scared me a lot with all of it’s settings and I continued to use my old camera which was comfortable for me. It’s a Fugi 2 megapix while the new one is 10m Nikkon! But this dilemma with the Seasonal Palette thing caused me to get out the new camera and seek help. After almost a week and 3 or 4 trips to town to the camera store I got some acceptable pictures and learned some stuff to even improve my shots with the old camera. For the most part I have been happy with my photos and have even once had a quilt professionally photographed which I thought was not any better than the photos I had taken myself, but this project presented some difficulties. I think partially the dimensions of the piece, 32 x 78″, caused some of the problems.
I finished another Chemo cap for my 8 year old niece. (She just had a birthday!)Â This one is made with bamboo yarn and is really soft, I hope she likes it!
I HAVE done some quilting, too which I will show you tomorrow.
