i actually have the whole weekend off from work, soooo, i'm trying to keep myself busy and not just sitting around. i had a stack, more like a pile, of shirts that no longer fit, but are too special to me to just give away of to throw out. so, i decided to cut them up, and keep the front designs and sew them together to make a quilt!
this was the pile i had to start off with :]
this is actually an iron on transfer from my artificial lighting class, it's an example of our process of creating an image for one of our assignments. the image on the left is some of my classmates setting up the 4x5 camera, making sure all the settings are correct, and the image on the right is the actual final image. pretty cool.
and this image is a portion of the squares that i have to work with to create my quilt. :] i have to get some more fabric for the backing and such, which will have to be another day. tomorrow i get to focus a little more on something else i have decided to take up in my spare time.... jewelry making... i've already made 2 keychains, and a pin. moooore to come! :] hopefully i can actually sell this jewelry along with some photographs at a local craft fair this summer/holiday time. i've been planning on doing something like that for the last 2 years, but haven't gotten things together in time to do so. hoping this year will be the year! lol! i need to get myself out in the world and get recognized a little more than i am at this moment. :]
i'm going to try my best to post on here every couple days. my post history is a little lonely. ;p
