This week's challenge was to set the shutter to a long exposure and then move the lense out or in at the same time. 

The trick came when trying to coordinate my shutter hand with my lense hand.  Took several tries to get them going at the same time.  Good thing I used a tripod or it would have been moving not just refocusing.

Maybe this represents the feeling when you miss seeing the stop sign until the last moment...Panic.

I struggled with this week's challenge of board games/harmony.  In desperation this morning since the photo is due today, I took a picture of an old piano keyboard.  Sort of combined "board" and "harmony" in my mind.

This week's challenge is a mirror image created in photo shop.  The trees are at Chena Hot Springs, Alaska.  The stuff that looks like snow on the trees is really frozen steam from the springs.  We were there 4 days and the temps ran between -33 and -26.

This week's challenge was to photograph something abandoned.  This is the tongue of an old hay rake.  It's been there long enough, the trees are growing up in it.

Working on new block of the month.  A patriotic one.  Also, taking an online photography class from Ricky Timms.  Hoping my camera, who is smarter than me, and I get along better together.  Each week is a new challenge and a lesson.  The first week was a bust for me.  I've added the last few weeks.  I can't seem to find where I saved the first few weeks in my computer files. 

This is the long depth focus week.  It's the reflection of the clouds to the east of the sunset to the west. 

This is "forks" challenge.  I took it at 4am.  Cold!!!!

This challenge was shapes.  The top of an old milk bottle  The junk my husband collects has finally come in handy.  

Last week was changing a color photo to B&W.

This is the second block of the month for next year that I created for my booth at wholesale market in Houston.  This one is totally made up with Northcott fabrics. 

Overbrook Quilt Connection will be using this for their block of the month starting in January.

This is the Block of the Month at Overbrook Quilt Connection.  I designed it this year and since it went so well, I'm designing another block of the month quilt to present at Wholesale Market in Houston.  So I'll have two BOM's to sell at market.

As you can see, it is on my machine in the quilting process.  This is the second quilt I've quilted of these and will probably have another one from my other tester. 

The quilt is completely made from Moda's Kansas Troubles line, but would work well with other lines or just scrappy.

The next block of the month is done with Northcott fabrics.
