using a workstation template. She did put squiggly lines and signed the quilt.

This is alittle post about photography in manual mode and quilting. I was able after taking a lot of photos to take them in manual mode on my Canon Rebel. I learned to change my shutter speed, ISO and
aperature. Now I should have used a tripod though at this shutter speed.
Now if I can post these pictures so they look as good as on my computer.
I put this heart fabric on the longarm and am going to make alittle wallhanging.
Where is Little pickle??? She sent me a picture of a cute labradoodle and a grandpickle yesterday. It was a friend’s labradoodle.

So I stayed inside working on some block of the months I haven't finished. Here is some from the
block of the month. It is the woman of courage quilt blocks. Each block is named after
a woman of courage. What stories. This is the Helen Keller, Sojourner Truth and Madeleine de Vercheres quilt blocks.
Well gotta go get warm by the fireplace. Papa Pickle makes the best fires in the fireplace.

The second project Momma Pickle and I are going to do in February, is take our cameras and spend a weekend in Emlenton, PA where she was raised. We still visit there a couple times a year, but its always to visit family, and we have never really done a "trip down memory lane" trip. The goal is to capture as much as we can about our family "through the lens". We plan on staying at the Foxburg Inn along the Allegheny River.
This picture is from "the deck" where many family gatherings are held in Emlenton.
So goodbye 2013. We miss you very much Grammy and Maggie!!! Looking forward to a new year with exciting and new opportunities!
