    I started out focused on modern quilting and first visited Bonnie’s blog for a technique tutorial.  Now I read her blog and Instagram every day.  She’s fantastic, and a real motivator. And someone you would really just like to know.

  • Great post, this was really helpful. I’ve also tried this once before and never finished. I was using my dslr and just couldn’t find the time to set up equipment and carry it around with me all the time. I recently purchased a smartphone and I’m pretty impressed with it’s camera and thought about trying it again. This post gave me some great ideas and I think I’m going to try again.

    Your photos are terrific and hope you have a great new year. Cheers.

Day 7 Day 8 Playing catch-up.  Have had mastitis for days now, and although I’m taking tons of antiobiotics and ibuprofen, I still feel terrible, having hot-flashes and chills, and a pretty constant temp of 101.  I’m trying to take it easy, but that’s sort of hard to do with three kids. Happy Wednesday to…
