I am making a lot of use of my digital camera, and the photo editting feature on my computer. I haven't decided if I think that's cheating or not, but it is certainly making it easier to tell if the shading is really correct. There's been a lot of back and forth, up and down stairs between the computer and the sewing room this week. It would be nice if the camera had a black & white option in the special features, but apparently it doesn't.
In between playing with little tiny squares, I've managed to baste one of my quilts. But I realized that my sewing table is too close to the design wall to quilt it safely. I'll end up with all the bits on the floor if I try, so I need to get the star moved along to the next stage before I start quilting.
