Derby is over!
I got the two roses done. I haven’t decided on a binding yet.
They turned out better than I thought they would. What do you think of them?
These look better in person.
I decided not to stretch them on frames. I can think about doing the other three after I get a couple of customer quilts finished.
Yesterday I was thinking about trying to do portraits. I’ve wanted to do them for a very long time. I missed out on going to Lexington in March for a class on portraits. I decided it was time to schedule and attend her next class now that I have much more time. I called the quilt shop in Lexington where the class is taught and guess what…. I happened to call while there was a portrait class going on. Too far away for me to get there in time but I talked with Julianne. I plan to go to her next class whenever it’s held. Even if I have to walk there! Just kidding, I’ll rent a car for the day. Now that I have the time, I’m planning to work extra hard at learning the portrait techniqes. I guess that means I should study photoshop elements a little harder. It still seems very complicated but it must be learned.
The Derby is finally over thank goodness. Now maybe I can get a good night’s sleep. I don’t bet on the Derby but I always choose a horse I believe will win. This time I was right. Most times I’m wrong. Did I ever say that my son is a horse trainer? He trains walking horses. I believe he has 4 horses of his own and always has some there in training. His horses are not walking horses. They are rescued horses. He got them from an animal shelter. I think they were about to be put down when he went to get them.
Ok, I guess I better see what work I can get finished before Ladybug gets home.
