Straits of Mackinac
I started my second quilt for 2017 :) I fell in love with the mock up that Bonnie Hunter had blogged about in November, and it has been on my mind ever since. I pulled out blue strips from my bin and started sewing! So far I have all the large triangle pieces needed, but now I need to figure out what I want to do for the background.
I was thinking about a neutral cream or white, but yellow is really calling to me. I pulled the majority of my stashed yellows, and I think I do like it. I know what my friend Mary is thinking about the yellows :)
I'm also trying to figure out Instagram. When I upload a photo, I find that I have an option to also post to flickr (where I host my blog images). However... I haven't seen it actually post to flickr yet. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong with that. Has anyone else had success with posting there? I'm taking a break with facebook (the politics are draining me!) so I have decided to start using my instagram account. I only started one years ago to see what my son was posting, but now I'd rather start seeing fun images so I think I am going to start going there instead of facebook. Anyway, if you have any tips, please send them my way!
