|I finished up my Schnitzel and Boo mini quilt swap project which needs to be mailed the first week of June. I will blog more about this once the recipient receives it and I have received mine.|
|I have chosen quite a few blocks to make for my Unnamed quilt . I do not have an exact plan for putting it together but will figure it out as I go.|
|The ironing board is home to a half finished dress and a dress that needs to be cut out. I need to get going on the dress that is not cut out as my four year old needs to wear it next Friday.|
|I made each of the twins a new summer blouse and will blog about them next week during a patern tour.|
|This bag is home to a little Christmas project (there's no other space for it) I need to have done in a week and a half. It is a mix of embroidery and hand stitching, and felt.|
All of my brain cells this week are working towards engraining principles of photography, specifically, focusing, into my brain. My brain felt like it was tied in knots earlier this week. I signed up to be in a group where we evaluate each others photos that are taken according to an assignment. I did not read the assignment before I signed up for the group thinking it would be a great learning experience. How hard could it be to take a few photos and evaluate photos for others?!?! While I read the assignment I was having heart palpitations and sweaty palms wondering why I didn't read the assignment before committing to a group. The assignment includes doing things like front and back focus testing your lens, back button focusing, learning how to magnify pictures to 100%, A1 Servo, and all kinds of vocabulary that sends my mind into a tail spin. After reading things over and over and over again and participating in the forum that is part of the class things might be sinking in a little. I shot some photos today to practice learning all the new stuff from the class and I think my focus was better than it has ever been in the past. Practice really does make perfect and I am learning all kinds of new stuff. Karen is an excellent teacher and I can not say enough good things about her classes. Have a great weekend!!!!
