See - this year's first outdoor photograph!
No more pictures with computer cables, bottoms of floral
curtains and random chair legs in the background. No more
crouching amidst toys in the only corner of the house
with any decent winter sunlight. No more photo-editing
to balance the hideous indoor lighting color tint. Today
I stepped out on our deck, in bare feet, with the camera.
Spring! Spring! Spring! Natural light! Sunshine!
Can you feel the exuberance? Can you sense the liberation?
Ah, but you want to know what that photo is all about.
This is my latest experiment - freezer paper stenciling.
Very fast, very easy, very instant-gratification, very addictive.
We have a birthday coming up in our family and I was looking
for a different medium for a gift (no, he probably won't
enjoy a set of cardboard traffic signal lights).
More in a later post. Probably a much later post,
since the outdoors is calling to me.
A note to faithful readers who came aboard because you
liked the sewing stuff: fear not - my sewing machine and
I are still friends. Some very colorful projects coming up soon.
