There are so many exceptional photographers in our blogging community, I’d have to insert a list block, and then I’d still probably forget one.
The amazing photography that we are allowed to view is truly right up there on the list of reasons we follow and read blogs. I applaud each and every one of you, and thank you sincerely for sharing your photography skills.
A while back, I was reading Travels and Trifles, and one photo just made me stop and linger because not only was it a stunning shot, but I was envisioning fabric for the various pieces.
Tina Schell’s photo is a 10+, and my fabric piece doesn’t even come close, but I had fun with the project.
I’ve never made my own pattern before so the first thing I did was have a large black and white poster made. I put tracing paper on top of that and drew all the lines. Then I cut the poster up into pieces so I could estimate how large the fabric pieces needed to be.
I live in a wonderful part of the country, but nice quilt stores are not in abundance here so I had to work with what I had or could buy so I embellished with some netting to adjust the shades of a couple of pieces.
Award winning? No, but it was an enjoyable project that kept me busy for several weeks so I thank Tina for letting me admire and imitate her photography.
Next project? Cutting some drapes down, and that won’t be near as interesting.
Gardening is keeping me pretty busy between home projects and MG projects.
Yesterday, we had to replace a pressure treated fence post that had rotted, and I started on an edging project.
We also received delivery and installation of a ramp to go with our shed. That shed not only looks good, but works well.
This morning, I’m off to pot up plants for the MG plant sale, and one day this week I hope to go with a friend to our local nursing home and install some more perennials for their enjoyment.
How’s your week looking? Working on an indoor or outdoor project of your own?
