More donations

From Sue and her Oroville/Chico California group, these 9 HeartStrings tops that will be finished by me and other volunteers in the coming months and donated to those in need.


Today's photo editing lesson combined a number of previous lessons. I chose this photo taken in April on our Ireland trip. It has some of the things I loved best about Ireland - the water, the green grass, stone walls and ruins.

I love the wrinkled old fashioned look the textures give it -- appropriate for a photo taken in the country my grandparents emigrated from.

Great photo...except for the water it could be the remains of my Grandfather's house in Galway...

The texture technique really highlights the photos. Great job.

That is just so clever. As you said, appropriate too.

Tried to comment on your next post and it would not let me. You were talking about getting board with the same block pattern.. Me too, I think that is way I love string quilts so much.

Mary,
Here's a site you might be interested in: http://www.labadiefiberart.com/
She loves Ireland too and most of her quilts are of stones there.

My father(my Da)came from Cork. I've never been there but I am determined to make it someday.
