This blog will be in addition to this one and will chronicle some of my crochet and knitting escapades and highlight artwork and items that are available in my gallery. I am also working on an official website but that has not gone as smoothly as I planned. Not unusual for a slightly technically challenged diva but I am working on digitally improving myself all the time. If you have a moment please check out. the new blog. Any one thinking of having a website might want to get their feet wet with a blog. They are a cost effective and a some what easy way of having a presence on the web for just about anything.

Today my new camera arrived and along with it I purchase an instructional overview video. Do I dare delve into photography? Only for medicinal purposes I hope. I got a new camera because the old one seems not to like the sand I dropped it in and a good camera is necessary to take good pictures of my quilts. To take good pictures I need to know my camera and basic rules of photography. To get that knowledge I need books and maybe a class and....... here we go again!
