A Tough Decision


This year the International Quilt Festival is having an exhibition of photographs titled “Eye of the Quilter.” If you read my blog, you know I love taking photographs. The deadline for submissions is tomorrow. I have spent the last 2 or 3 days poring over my stored photos. I finally decided on three. The above photo was taken in Seattle. I did some Photoshop manipulation. Click on it to see a larger version.

Here are the other two



Claudine Itner, who coordinates Art Now for Autism, selected this piece so Cindy will get the other one, which I think was her favorite. I am putting bamboo hangers on all of them.


I am so ready to move on to some other work, but I am also busy sprucing up the house for all of our guests who will be coming in September. Today, Mr C and I worked on the kitchen cabinets. I rearranged the interiors and he polished up the exterior. I am trying to do a bit of housework in the morning and work in the studio in the afternoon.

Yesterday, I took Steph out to lunch and to see Julie and Julia. We loved, loved it. I couldn’t get enough of Meryl Streep. I want to see it again. I think Mr C would enjoy it.

    I loved Julie and Julia – so many wonderful older women actresses with good parts – shocking!!

    Those are some awesome photos! I spent days looking through mine on Picasa, and it was really tough to narrow it down.

    Your first picture is of the complex that I live in!

    Hubby and I went to the movie last Friday: he loved it as much or more than I did. We are already planning to get it through Netflix when it is released. it may even be one we buy to see again and again. I love your photos, especially the first one. Since starting my blog, I have become a photo nut: I may need to take a class so I know what I am doing. HA!

    All 3 are good choices and although the last one is personally intriguing for me, the girl in motion I like the best.

    I also love the last image. It is visually intriguing, a bit conceptual, and has a great sense of line and color.

    I like teh last photo best. The first one is cool, but kinda says “specific place.” I think the last one is more unusual. The girl, though adorable, isn’t as bold as the architectural photos.

    I so want to see Julia & Julia. Must go do that.
