You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘photo apps’ tag.

One of the things I have wanted to do is to build my skills with various photo or art apps with the idea of increasing the ways I can alter and print images on fabric.  I am currently taking a great online class with Susie Monday which makes me take the time to explore a variety of apps on the ipad.  Almost every day a new app to play with!  Here are two favorites from this week.

Hoping you all had a wonderful holiday season and wishing for everyone to have a great New Year!

This last year I have been more about doing than about blogging/recording it. And it has been an eventful year.

Coastal nature continues to be a daily treat.

Cooking is fun in the new kitchen.

Though there are always a few mishaps along the way.

Traveled a little both nearer and farther.

Had precious visits to and from loved ones. Not everyone is featured here to protect the innocent (or not so innocent).  Some of the photos merely are hints.

Had fun with friends…

Created crafty, artsy things, like playing with photo apps,

making pins to wear (or not) out of precut wood pieces.

Made some great shoulder bags out of this fabric but must have forgotten to photograph the bags…

Made a tunic…

and finished several more quilts…

dyed some fabric… some of which is in an art quilt that is days away from finished.

This year I also came to terms with the fact that my projects take more space than I have.  So I rented a little studio space where I have sufficient room for my “dry” studio activities.  (This means designing, drawing out my ideas, piecing, and long arm quilting as well as storing my stockpile of supplies. I will still be dyeing and printing on fabrics at home.)

The morning I picked up the studio keys I was greeted by a rainbow.  Seems like a good sign to me.  ;)
