Back to Normal, Hopefully!
I just have a little point-and-shoot camera, it's the HP Photosmart R817, but it certainly takes great macro shots! This is a new Black-Eyed Susan that we have in our garden. It was planted two years ago, and this is the first time it has bloomed. But boy, has it bloomed!
I think these late summer flowers are my favourites. I'd love to get some cosmos too, but I think our yard is too shady for them. We only get sun at the very end of the day. It is great light for photos, though.
Our basement is pretty much sorted, now. It is actually better than it was before, because we took out some old built-ins, and now I have more room for my stash!
I've also finished the new website for my quilt guild Rouge Valley. Check it out here. I'm trying to stop tinkering with it now, and get back to this blog on a more regular basis. It was a fun project, though. I realized yesterday that at least with the website done, I can feel that I accomplished something over the summer, given that I haven't been able to quilt at all. My online friend Anna Maria Salehar calls the work on her website "electronic embroidery," so maybe my work on the guild website has been "electronic quilting." ;)
It is certainly nice to be back to normal, anyway!
