Storm in Maryland

This morning I woke up to the raining coming down, high winds, and freakishly warm weather. I got the kids off to school and headed off to work. Eight hours later I left the building to find the sun shining! And yes, there are pretty much no windows in my building so I never know what the weather will be until I head outside. The storm has passed AND I finished my Storm at Sea UFO too! Since the weather was cooperating, I headed outside to take some pixs.

I used three different batiks for the quilt. I really love the sunflower fabric even though it's not quite my usual colors.

When I was stitching the rows together, things were looking kinda boring to me. Once I got the quilt done and hung it up, it all came together.

Then I decided to get artsy and play around with my camera. I've only had it a few months......I really liked the different effects I got when I changed the angle of how I took the photos.

I like the wavy effect in this one.

Here's a few more......I had so much fun taking the photos!

Two UFO's done this month!! Horray! It feels great to finish up long delayed projects! Have a great day!

what a gorgeous quilt! I love the colors you selected.. and your photos are great too! Amazing at how much better we can be with a camera when playing around with it. ;) And I've learned that having the big screen on my digital camera saves me from having to bend down - I jsut extend my arm take, look... if it's good I keep it, if not I delete and then take a few dozen more! LOL :)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

Nothing boring at all about this quilt - I love that you didn't use the usual colours for this pattern. Your autumn tones look fab. Love how you showed lots of photos they really highlight the design. Thanks for sharing.
