Peggy and her husband often hang out on the front porch and chat with passer byers like me. Once she shared lemons with me too!

Spring Scavenger Hunt

Walked home from Trader Joe's with my camera last week. I only spent an extra thirty minutes stopping to look for spring in every other front yard.

Heading off to WWII from Camp Roberts, CA

Bet my father wasn't actually as jolly here at Camp Roberts, waiting to get sent off to Europe as he looked with that camera....

We're doing collages in my photoshop class this week. I used the cutout filter and created a partial duotone as a second layer on this, to bring out my father. Also eliminated a soldier! There were 5 guys in the original photo. I replaced him with vegetation using the clone stamp.

Sewing: Stash Busting Slinky Robe for my daughter

My Cal Poly daughter is in the area on a field trip with a group, and is spending the night here.I sewed up this robe for her this last week as a visit-home surprise.

She thought she wanted to learn to sew last summer and got as far as picking out this pattern and material, and cutting out the robe herself. Then, I think. she decided sewing wasn't really for her, when we started our simple sewing lessons. Of course that slippery material wasn't a good beginner choice anyway.

It's good to get another stash project done. And the little tag I put on to make it look even more elegant, was a good excuse to work on my skills from my new Photoshop class!
