I am enjoying a slower pace of life after the Christmas / New Year chaos.

I have been working on a small foundation pieced quilt. Progress has been slowly made.

Santa gave me a new camera for Christmas and I have been enjoying learning how to use it. I have joined an on-line photography challenge called the 52 Week photography Challenge. Each week you are given a theme and you submit a photo taken responding to that theme.
Week one was a Self-portrait using the timer. 

Week 2 .....Traditional landscape paying attention to foreground and sky....sooooo Miss Beth and I went on an excursion literally at the crack of dawn to our local beach, Norah Head. Great to be thinking creatively again. We both really enjoyed the morning, although we had a very SLOW afternoon.

I managed to get a few shots that I was happy with using manual mode but ended up submitting this photo below as this weeks entry.

I am chipping away at a few things that need doing and relaxing as well....trying to enjoy... before the craziness of the year begins again.



  1. love the quilt... so effective with that white.... have fun with your camera... looks like you are on to a good start with the challenge
