I think I've got it!!

This is a portrait of my son, the one who has been working on the Hobbit and sending me such glorious photos - well, we had a day out in the Wairarapa and this is Lake Ferry - not that you can see the lake.  The wind was wickedly cold and strong, you can see where the ocean had surged over the shingle bank.  I was not game enough to go up there in case I couldn't run back fast enough.

The point is I have been playing on the computer trying to find a way to publish my blog with photos, and I think I have found the way to downsize them..........  I'll try one with a quilt.

Not exactly a quilt, but a bag - made under tuition I might add, another friend and I were volunteer guinea pigs for Jan who is teaching the class for Pinestream Quilters.

We had a lot of fun, she is such a good teacher - and what else could I do with that amazing fabric?

All the shades of green and pink were on the one piece.

Jenny put up a much better photo when she showed all the lovely quilts at the recent Pinestream meeting.

I had some fun with the Hit'n'Miss top; really enjoyed finding plaids to go with the pinky four patch and the tee dyed calico

Umm, well; I have just clicked on it and the quality is pretty awful.  Maybe I have been too harsh on the resizing- more experimenting is in order.

In the meantime I have a quilt waiting..........
Thanks for stopping by - as Buddha says "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else you are the one who gets burned,"
