I'm not going to complain, really I'm not, because it's a glorious day. Temperature just above freezing, but clear blue skies and sunshine. After the gloom of the last ten days or so it's wonderful to look at some sunshine and to be able to walk in the crisp fresh air. BUT, I think I need some lessons in photography. Ive been waiting for a brighter day to take these finishes outside to photograph them, and the sun was so bright that it's washed parts of them out completely. I shall have to have another go with a little drawstring bag I made to go in our camper van to hold one of the games, Rummikub. But here they are anyway.
This was the pattern from Hugs from Helen; it was designed as a round robin to be shared with friends, but I left it too late to get organised so made it for myself and just changed the verse to read The flowers that bloom in the spring, Tra La!
This was BOM from Quiltecke and I shall certainly try to get a better photograph of this as the little embroideries are rather sweet.
I made this using the last of my blue scraps for So Scrappy's Rainbow challenge. Having just bought Tonya Ricucci's new book Word Play Quilts, I decided to have a go at some letters for the outer border. I learnt a lot! For one thing, take more notice of contrast in the fabrics; some of the letters aren't too clear.
I quilted it with a wave and boat pattern from Mindful Meanderings, a book that I won in So Scrappy's give-away last year.
Does anyone know of a good, free, site that gives tips on taking good photographs?
