And the Winner is....

Following the very scientific process of putting numbers in a bowl,


I drew #6--Carolyn from Loves Stitching Red as the winner of the heart giveaway. Congratulations Carolyn, you will be receiving the rust colored heart! (Hermila is the winner of the heart giveaway on my blog and will receive the polka dot heart.) If you would both email me your mailing addresses, I will get those off to you. rolsen222@yahoo.com

Thank you to everyone who left a comment about the hearts--I really appreciate hearing from you and finding out what you like! We will be doing more giveaways in the future, so please keep watching for them.

I have been busily playing with Photoshop as I finish up DJ Pettitt's online class. It's easy to become addicted to it. The class was very challenging, but worth it. I ended up learning a lot about masking, layer adjustments, and making my own brushes. I recommend it for anyone who has a little Photoshop background.

This is a composite of about 4 photos I took on my Sunday morning walk downtown:

And this is from the Japanese Garden, blended with several other photos from my archive:


I don't have a clue what I'll do with it, but it is fun.

Robin, I especially like the layers and colors in your last photo with the lantern. You could use this for inspiration for one of your hand stitched pieces.

Wow love the blue green one and the dreamy way the architectural feature emerges from the abstract background. You're right Paula, wouldn't this just be lovely in fabric!

Fun photo compositions. I haven't taken the class but have been playing around with PS on my own. It's a learning experience, and you're right, addictive.
