Photo Shoot Gone Awry


I had high hopes for taking some fun outdoor pictures of this quilt today–however, the gray skys, extreme wind and 3 foot snowdrift right beside my clothesline have thwarted my efforts. =)  I did get a lot of this:

And quite a bit of this:

And even more:

I also got frozen fingers, snow in my socks(from the 3 foot snowdrift) and snow tracked inside.  However, I did get to play a bit with my new camera lens from the hubster which was quite fun.  I guess I should add the borders onto this quilt and try again on a sunnier, warmer, less windy day. =)

On another note, I am so glad that you guys are finding your way over here! =)
