Photography Fixes for Blogging Quilters from Life In Pieces

A few weeks ago Angie (who blogs at A Quilting Reader's Garden) asked me to share how I get my blog photos so bright and sharp.  To be honest, I've never considered my quilting photos for the blog all that wonderful. In part because there's not a lot of staging with my photos. It's pretty much lay out the blocks or the quilt and shoot. My sewing and blogging time is pretty limited these days and I'd so much rather sew.  But I do try hard to ensure that any posted photos are sharp, bright ...

Autumn Leaves from ... Cat Patches

As expected, there was no sewing yesterday. After Saturday's marathon, it was good to take a break anyway. I had apple pie filling to make. Yesterday's yield was 8 pints, and I have a couple of apples left over.


There would have been nine pints except that one of the jars blew its top in the final minutes of the 30-minute processing time. It surprised me, and it caused me to ask a question of fellow canners on Facebook. Their responses were friendly attempts at being helpful, but really offered no new information.

So here's the story ...

Week 40 of 2019: Stitching Stuff from Life In Pieces

It was a long week, way too many meetings on my calendar.  I spent most of Saturday in my sewing room, so now I feel much, much better.  Fitting in time in the evenings helps, but there's nothing like having the better part of a day to sit and play with fabric.  How did your stitchy week go? 



My Guy was out of town most of the week, which made it a little easier to work in my 15 minutes each evening.  

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/Sept = 30/30 days
15 minute days ...

A Kitchen Day from ... Cat Patches

It was overly optimistic to think anything was going to happen in the sewing room yesterday. I spent the day in the kitchen. That's not a complaint...I enjoy cooking, and everything ended up taking longer than I thought it would. Things might have happened faster had I not gotten it into my head that I needed to start the day with a canning project. On the other hand, I really wanted those CSA carrots out of my vegetable crisper, and so I went ahead with this Carrot Relish.


Really, I was looking for a new way to use ...

Pixel color inspiration from ART GIRL

I was looking for a photo and when I cropped it and zoomed in I saw these pixels in the top corner - the original picture was a photo with colorful trees in the background. I've thought about this idea off and on for several years- find pretty, interesting pixel groups in my photographs, then make quilts based on the color groupings or use the color palette as a starter for a painting.

The above square was taken from a small portion of this:

Which was taken from a small portion of this tree photo:

Think of all the possibilities ...

Upton House & Gardens from Sew Create It

Taking full advantage of the lovely summer weather, DD1 and I ventured to Upton House and Gardens in South Warwickshire.  It’s been a looong time since she and I have ventured out on a cultural day on our own and it was quite delightful!  (think Pride and Prejudiced delightful…after all that seem to be our “theme” music for the day)

It is a spectacular house set in the most stunning gardens that run into the neighbouring valley.  As each area of the garden is terraced you don’t really appreciate how steep the landscape is until you ...
