Photo Friday – Golden Hour

This week’s photo challenge was to capture a photo during the “Golden Hour,” that time before sunset when shadows are longer, the light is golden and everything looks softer.  When reading about the effect of Golden Hour light, I immediately thought of the golden daffodils in my front yard that were already turned toward the […]

#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 49

This week in 2012, it was fiddle head fern season. It is now too, actually;  I have some in my fridge right now, but I think that 2012 might have been the first time I encountered them. I immortalized both their shape and the recipe for cooking these strange vegetables in my journal quilt for […]

2016 Projects – #APQResolution – April

It’s an embarrassment to me just how many things in my UFO drawer only require 5 – 10 minutes worth of work to finish them.  This month’s UFO needed a hanging sleeve and then needed to be hung. The quilt itself has been finished since 2008? 2009?  And now, it is finally hanging!  Of course, […]

Photo Friday – Lexington Green

Our photo challenge this week was “Happy.”  I took the easy route and submitted a photo of my daughter painting her hands blue. (She was making hand prints on paper and having a lovely time getting covered in paint.)  However, since we have a No Kid Photo Online policy, I will instead share a recent […]

#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 48

More baseball in Week 48 of my journal quilt project in 2012.  This week in 2012, Boston celebrated the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park in a moving ceremony that included former players walking out from center field to the positions that they played during their time in a Sox uniform.  My journal quilt, constructed crazy […]

2016 Projects – #BringItHome

I’m a little late on my posts this week. Monday was a holiday here in Massachusetts. (Patriot’s Day – We had Red Coats and Continental Soldiers on Mass. Ave. on Sunday and Paul Revere rode by on Monday on his way from Boston to Lexington.)  And yesterday, I decided to KonMari my closet (from The […]

Photo Friday – Street Photography

This week’s photo challenge assignment was “Street Photography.”  The shot I submitted was one that I took of two quilters having an engaging chat in front of the Superior Threads booth at MQX East in Manchester, NH. However, though I may be the only person on the planet who concerns myself with this, I don’t […]

#TBT – Journal Quilt Week 47

Well, this journal quilt from 2012 is appropriate this week. The quilt represents Opening Day 2012 and It was Opening Day at Fenway Park on Monday this week. As usual, my DH (Dear Husband, not Designated Hitter) and I were there. I don’t remember what the day in 2012 was like, but Monday was the […]

Photo Friday – Composite Montage

My photo for this week’s challenge didn’t get done in time. I took my photos while on the retreat at Lake Winnipesaukee and even had several hours to myself once I got home before my DH and daughter came home.  But, I was so exhausted from the weekend and the drive that I just could […]
