All of these images were shot with my Micro NIKKOR 40mm 1:2.8 lens. The lens was a Christmas gift from B in 2012 so that I could take more detailed photos of my work. It's an amazing lens!
This is my favourite shot from the exercise. The light, layers and bokeh effect all make me happy.
Quilting will be back on the program starting Friday morning. It's the VMQG's first sleepover retreat!! I'm sad to miss a lot of the show action, but I'm also excited about retreating with my modern guild peeps at the beautiful Edenvale Retreat Centre. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous, so hopefully we'll get to see some sweet trilliums and wild orchids on the forest walk behind the house. I'll be working on a comfort quilt for a friend who is in need of a miracle. Thanks to the generosity of local quilt friends and moms in our community I have almost 70 blocks to sew together and get basted this weekend. That's another thing that's been occupying my mind a lot over the past few weeks: our friend community has really suffered a tremendous amount of heartbreak over the past year. It's a real time of reflection and introspection for me. I know you understand.
