I’m Back!

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!!

    So pleased to hear you’ve come to grips with your computer….mine too has changed lots since Microsoft 10 was installed — like you, I’m getting used to it. Congratulations on being juried into Houston!
