I heart Macro

Even though this image would  not get good marks from judges I love it.  I think it makes a really cool abstract image.  I honestly don't really care what judges would say.  The older I get the more I find myself needing to break out of boxes and shoulds.

Work in Progress Wednesday

This is my June CQ block.  I had set it aside as I just wasn't quite sure how to finish it.  I knew it needed a little something more but wasn't sure what.  Yesterday I learned a new stitch and decided it was just what this block needed.

Take a stitch Tuesday

The chained bar is a very cool stitch!  I think it has a lot of potential.  It is certainly a lot easier to do than the last stitch I learned (really didn't learn it).  I am excited to try with some other threads and fibres.  Pictured above I added it to a seam on my CQ project from last year.   I don't have any other projects on the go that I could have added it to.  I hope I don't forget about it!

I heart Macro

This image I shot with my phone.  I am quite pleased with the quality.  It is a back lit amaryllis.  I think it is kind of cool to see the veins of the petals.

work in progress Wednesday

I am on a bit of a holiday this week so I am doing this post from my phone.   So cool.  I really didn't know I could do that.  
This is my cq block for July.   I have a lot done so far and look forward to getting it done on time.

Take a stitch Tuesday a day early

This is a hot mess!   I feel pretty frustrated with it and just can't seem to wrap my brain around it.  I have to say that I don't like the look of this stitch to bother figuring out how to do it right.  This is supposed to be the Twisted Lattice Band stitch that Sharon B gives the instructions for  at  I am not going to let it get to me.  I can take out the ugly weaving.  There are plenty of other stitches I can use I don't have to know how to do them all.  Onward.

I heart Macro

I am participating in the Heart Macro blog at
I think this is a fun image.  I like that the anthers are in focus and the rest of the flower isn't.
