No Problem I thought , I'll take the picture after work and I'll still have time to get the post together in time to link up on Wednesday.
By the time I left work at 5:00pm it was cold and rainy. After supper it had stopped raining so I tried to take some pictures. The outside ones didn't look good and the inside ones didn't look good. So I thought if the weather is good in the morning I'll take the pictures then and I'll come home at lunch and write my blog post.
On Wednesdays I start work at 7:30am. So I took these pictures quite early and I think the quilt looks really lovely in them.
I love this quilt top so much I love all the different low volume prints in the background and the softness of the pinks and greens. The Penny Patch was a quilt along with Rachel Houser of Stitched in Color, in the fall of 2013. This was the first project I participated in online and it was before I had the blog and before I knew how to get a photo on the computer. I chose to do this quilt along because I wanted to try using a low volume background and because Rachel gave good advise about colour proportions.
We had a family crisis which interrupted my progress and then a family wedding. I'm really glad to finally have the top finished. This was my May goal for a year of lovely finishes.
Here's another shot of the lovely softness. Don't the backyards look so peaceful in the early morning light, with all the fresh green of leaves and grass. But of course my story doesn't end here with all the peacefulness.When I was moving the photos from i photo to the desktop the computer froze. I couldn't do anything to unfreeze it. I called my husband to see if he had any ideas but I had already tried all his suggestions. So I went to work with the computer still frozen.
One of my co workers suggested that I hold the power button down for a long time and that might fix the problem. It was very quiet at work so I came home early and her suggestion worked! Yeah! So here I am linking up late to Let's Bee Social. I wonder if I will get any visitors?
