The cold weather is certainly motivation to quilt. We had a good bit of snow on Mon & Wed which helped clear the air. Someone inquired what I meant by "inversion". In the winter, we get weeks where the cold, stagnant air gets trapped in the valley and the warm, clear, sunny skies are are high elevation. Now it's just clear and cold.
I even bundled up to go outside to take pictures of the quilt...but the sun is so low on the horizon that my yard is all shadows from the trees and shrubs. Still trying to figure out settings on the camera. The successful photo was some auto setting that didn't include flash. Not sure if I can replicate. Good thing I start a photography class Tues.
Update: Am linking up to Esther Aliu's WIPs on Wed post since the applique is her Heart's Desire (though completely re-arranged) and I thought her readers may be interested. And I discovered at photography class that I accidentally discovered the "scene" settings on my new camera and the first photo was taken with bright natural light from the window and the portrait setting.
