Day 5: I have strong eyes..20/15...even though I wear glasses.
I have been experimenting, with Picasa and in the quilting studio the last 2 weekends. Here is the top that I finished today complete with an experimental slide show. My monthly quilt swap challenge, for January is working with solids and Gee's Bend inspired theme. This top is what happens when I get carried away with my twin tiny quilt to keep. I really love this palette, it is not one I usually use and I think that all the colors look really "glowy" to me. I like when that happens. (as you can see I had a hard time finding a way to photograph it will my husband napped and the kids watched "Wow, Wow, Wubbzy"...gotta love a lazy Saturday.) I also got my 6am chair quilt all sandwiched and started quilting it. I decided to wait until it is finished for the grand reveal. It is a large wall quilt, but it will get finished FASTer than if I make it larger. Right now, I am not willing to shelve another half-finished project. I am about getting it out there and getting on to the next project...no more lingering indecision, there are too many quilts that I need to make.
I have to say that the death of Claire McLeod (fictional character) has made me so sad. I feel utterly ridiculous about being this attached to a character, but I think that I identified a lot with her. Seriously, I have been thinking of things that she could have done different so that the Ute wouldn't have gone in to that gully. Very sad.
Ahhh, the dark days of winter.
