Blogging On The Porch
This morning, after the flowers were watered, the furkids were brushed, the hair swept up in the greatroom (daily ritual)and a cup of coffee was made, I headed out to the porch to read. I had my coffee and book and the doggies had a fresh bowl of water, so I settled into a log rocker with coffee in hand, opened my book and eeerrr! doh! duh! drat!....after reading the first sentence, I realized that I've already read this book. I had checked it out a couple of years ago when it was new!
Not to waste the cool of the morning, I went up to the loft and got the laptop, brought it down to the porch and jumped into the web universe. Isn't wireless Internet a marvelous thing!
I've seen a lot of collages lately in blogs and I've played with it before on Picasa, so I thought I would use it today. My pictures start out at a high resolution so at this point Blogger will only let me put up three pictures. Susan and Sandy...any tips since you both blog with such beautiful pictures. I also need to figure out inserting links!
The collage pictures were taken two years ago at the annual flower show held at Navy Pier, on the lakefront in Chicago.
When the heat comes back this afternoon, I'll be heading back to the quilt room. Late last night I got this inspiration for a hexagon quilt block that I could actually use strips and to some chain piecing!!!!!
