and on to a new year!  And I think rather than piecing so many quilts, I better improve my photography skills! First, REMEMBER to take a picture, especially if giving it away!. And second, take better pictures. But that’s whole new subject.  I wish I had a good spot, number one, to take a good photo. And my lighting is not good. They say to not use your flash when taking them, but then they turn out a bit blurry.  What’s your ideal spot/way to take photos of finished quilts?

2009 Finishes—a partial showing

I created an Excel sheet clear back in 2000 when I tried to remember at the year’s end all the quilts I have finished that year. I, for the life of me, couldn’t remember more than a couple, yet I worked on quilts all year! They call it ‘old age’, I say temporary memory lapse! I find that it’s refreshing to look back over the past year and realize that I really was productive and did more than run around and mess up my studio.  I try to take photos of each quilt when they are done, sometimes I forget and ship the quilt off and that’s okay. They are not masterpieces by any sense of the word, but nice to jog the memory.  Here’s a recap of last year:

okay—I guess I better stop here as I can’t find photos of  rest of the quilts. Guess what I’m doing tomorrow?   I really want to have a photo history of what I’ve done, a lot of times the name of a quilt isn’t enough to jog my memory!   So…more to come……
