Trying a new background for pictures.

I have always been a little envious of people who take really great pictures. My pictures are "meh" most of the time. I know that good light is key, and that is my biggest problem. Natural light obviously is better than not. I also understand that my backgrounds could be better ... the floor, the counter ... B O R I N G.

So I am trying something new. What do you think?

Piping for the pillow swap pillow.

The subject isn't all that interesting. It's just the piping that I have prepared, but not yet sewn into the pillow for the pillow talk swap. I think I like it. You may be seeing more of it around here.

I can also show you a few mugrugs. They seem to be all the rage right now. You see them everywhere! I have sent out a couple recently. Two went to my swap partner in the scrappy mug rug swap, and two went out on a side swap.

back or front?

front or back?

I included the "wonky one" since it matched ...

I should have my pillows done soon, so I should be able to show you some progress before you know it.


  1. I really like the orange background and the lighting in it. I have the same problem with my pictures but have yet to do anything about it.

  2. please, please, please teach me how to put on binding. I SUCK! Yours turned out so nicely and I want to be able to make mine look crisp and neat, like yours!
