I had a couple of vacation days last week. I accomplished a few things, but not as much as I’d have liked. My wonderful computer savvy son came over and showed me some things on WordPress to make my blog better. I learned a few things and will put this knowledge to use as I get better at this blogging. I was using Blogger (Cajun Quilting), but it seems to me that WordPress will give me more room to grow if this becomes something I continue to do more in the future.
I’ve figured out that if I continue to advance with this I will need to be taking better pictures. With the holidays approaching it is possible I can convince my husband that a good camera is what I will be asking for from Santa. At this point I’ve only been using my camera phone.
My son also suggested that I use a free photo editing program called Gimp which I downloaded yesterday. Wow, this is also going to a journey to learn as well as my quilting, but with just a little contrast and brightness adjustment the picture is a little better. So here I go to You Tube, who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.
On to my actual quilting project, I’ve been free motion quilting on my Janome 9400. It is way too early in my journey to invest in anything more than a domestic machine at this time. I’ve completed most of the red arrow blocks. Hopefully soon I will begin to get better at it. I am still quite wiggling around with it. I try to line the edges up, but soon find myself straying off the path. Please take a look, and let me know what you think.
As always, I encourage you to provide me with any suggestions or constructive criticisms on my journey. I only want to get better at this and I need all the advise I can get.
