A sudden burst of creativity

I had brought my digital camera to work for a surprise party for one of the guys here.  After the excitement had died down, I thought I’d take the camera up to the viewing deck in this side of Queens and capture the Manhattan skyline in a few frames I can start to work with.

I’ve always wanted to have my own shots of the Manhattan skyline but have never really gotten down to doing it until today.

My header above (a miniature of which I am attaching below so that people who see this post after the header has changed will see what I’m referring to) is one of several iterations of a photo I’ve started to work on.  I know it’s not some grand work of art but it’s mine — and I’m actually very proud considering I don’t have any of the fancy graphics softwares I used to work with like CorelDraw.  This was plain and simple Microsoft Photo Editor.

More to come, more to come!  (Danny, if you see this, I know this is peanuts compared to what you can come up with but I’m an amateur, and this is big to me!)



Craft Report: What to do about dropped stitches

After I successfully connected my third ball to this project, I proceeded to examine what I had managed to stitch up the past couple of weeks.  I’m proud of the size it’s grown to, but I was disappointed (although not surprised) to find a dropped stitch or two.  Fortunately, the whole project is a mass of big stitches because I’m working with a size 19 needle, so they are not really obvious unless you go through the rows with a fine tooth comb.  I’m not perturbed — the project still looks good as it is. 

I guess I’ll leave them the way they are..

Never camera shy

For some reason I had slowed down in taking Angel’s pictures.  In fact I didn’t change my e-mail signature until today, and I’m posting his May signature here just to keep a record of it here in my blog.  June’s is a series of 4 pictures — and he basically looks the same.  He’s been an absolute angel.. literally.

Today’s parting was rather easy thanks to Higglytown Heroes.  The weekend went well thanks to the joy he brings to us.  That’s my Angel..
