I found a pattern for a crocheted runner for a small table. Thinking it would be a pretty tablecloth, I made row after row after row of pineapples. Then I crocheted the rows together. I forgot when I started this and have no idea how long it took me to make.
Yes, I should have blocked it before putting it on the table that Jim made. I just didn’t feel like it. I’m considering making a crocheted bedspread, but I’m going to hold off until I come to my senses.
It’s too cold today to work outside with clay, so I’m inside, writing and sometimes outside and taking photographs. I get an e-mail each week from Digital Photography School Click Here and I’ve been playing around with shadows, back lighting, and learning more about what the Canon Rebel T3i will do. It does a whole lot – and I’m still learning.
Looking east. With all the rain we’ve had, the trees are full of leaves and grass is growing. Fuzzy back lit.
It rained this morning which left clouds on the mountains and opportunities to take back lit photos. Looking north at the Dona Ana Mountains.
While I was taking photos, the sky began to clear. Looking West at the Robledo Mountains.
Still looking north, but after the sky cleared. We’ve had some rain the last couple weeks, and the desert is green. Normally, that view is brown with a few green dots here and there. It’s not often that the mountains are green.
Looking northwest at the very green desert.
One of the huge agaves we have in the back year. The bottoms of the leaves are smooth and the patterns are an illusion.
This is a cholla (choy-ah) in our backyard. Those light green things are where the flowers were.
