Looking South from Sunset Lane

Looking South from Sunset Lane

Hello everyone. For today’s assignment, “Landscape”, I headed out around our great town with my camera in hand. I thought about a shot of Stalker Lake. Umm, not today. I saw the bluffs behind the school, and actually settled on a spot just down the road. I expected to focus more on the cliffs, but the sunshine was bound and determined to take center stage.
I was glad there were a few clouds to add more interest to the gorgeous blue sky.
The dirt road does pull you into the scene, and I love the way the sun rays explode in the sky.
I’d say it’s another beautiful day here on the eastern plains of Colorado.
Have a great day, and be inspired.
Fellow Quilter,

Tumbleweed_Street

 

Hello everyone.

Todays Photography 101 assignment was “Street”.  I looked around on this chilly fall day, and it was as if there were more tumbleweeds than cars or people on Main Street at that moment.  I had a great time shooting in manual mode, and the shadows made me think black and white.  I think the sun hitting the weed really highlights the texture of its branches.  The contrast against the shadow of a nearby car gives a lacy effect.

It’s amazing how different this image is, than it would have been in color.  The atmosphere today is kind of gray, yet sunny, and the wind temperature is a bit cold.  I think it’s a great day to warm up my creative juices.

Happy Quilting,

Studio Sneak Peek

I love looking at other artists studios. So… I thought you’d like a peek into mine.

As you see “Artie” is busy stitching out a design on my latest customer’s quilt.

Actually, that reminds me… This customer, Benita from Greeley, Colorado asked me to quilt a dear sentiment on her quilt.

She told the story of her father helping her with story problems in her math homework as a young girl. He would prompt her to solve the problem by asking “What do you have… and what do you want?”

I thought this phrase was so awesome. Really fits with the puzzle theme of this sudoku quilt pattern for sure.

It took some time to quilt, being that each letter is stiched out as an individual pattern, but the end result is marvelous.

I hope you like the peek at my studio, and especially a glimpse into this quilt’s legacy.
