Quilting Action Shot

October 9, 2008

I’m still thinking about managing photos and am taking a stab at some of your great suggestions in an attempt to get the situation under control. The first step is pulling the close to 1,000 images off my camera’s memory card and organizing them into folder by month (great suggestion from Kate).  I’m still trying to figure out if it is worth doing a separate Flickr for personal shots. But in the process I discovered that Tim took some action shots of me quilting on our dinning room table and I just thought they were a) cute and b) you can see my brand new hair cut!

Here is a shot of the finished quilt (with its beautiful lavender border) which I sent to C. yesterday.  Major congratulations are in order as she delivered her beautiful baby girl yesterday morning at 11am!

What perfect timing for you to get the quilt finished and mailed! It’s beautiful!

Yay – action shots! I love them. And it sounds like the quilt went out in the nick of time.

(And I like the new haircut, too!)

I bet you needed a should massage after finishing the quilting! Impressive.
