Let's kick off the new year with new, colorful photos of an old project: Chaos. Remember how difficult it was to photograph it with the Irish rain? Well, I was in the US for the Christmas holiday. I brought with me a few finished projects to photograph in the hope of finding a bit of sun. So, one bright morning I packed them up and took a walk in the local nature preserve, Peace Valley. I regularly walk here often while I'm in PA. I grew up in this nature reserve flipping over rocks to look for bugs, bird watching and catching frogs. I love it here. Still, you have to know I looked like a right eejit walking around with a camera and several quilts, but it had to be done!
There are lots of downed trees in the reserve this winter. They were knocked over during Hurricane Sandy, giving me a dose of reality in my walk. Still, they made great backdrops for a photo or two!
There's our colorful kick off to 2013. Here's hoping the new year is filled with gorgeous colors, fab fabrics and great finishes for all of us!
