Amazing Knitting Machine

A friend sent me the link to this blog... This is a pretty amazing knitting machine. It is an interactive sock project, where the knitting occurs when people blow through a straw.

Quilts and Family Heritage

I'm in Canada now, visiting my parents and family. Before I left, my mom called and asked me to take a photo of a quilt my grandmother had made to give me for my wedding, many years ago.

The quilt is a Dresden quilt pattern, and many of the fabrics used were from my childhood clothing. Apparently, my grandmother Koehler cut out two sets of everything, and my mom just found the second set. So now, she (mom) wants to look at how grandma put everything together.

These family treasures will stay with us forever.

Fun on the Streets of San Diego

On Friday night, during a gallery hop, I noticed two fun things on the streets of San Diego.
Here the first...
Mona Lisa, a clothing boutique that offers alterations AND internet.

The Secret Squirrel Society?? If nothing else, a good sense of humor.

Mesa Students at Photoshoot

A few weeks ago, I took my Photoshop class to a local photo studio DK3 Studios, here in San Diego. We shot images of the students posing, so that we could use them in Photoshop. Thanks to Dave King for his generous spirit with our students.

Below you can see a few of their poses. Needless to say, we had fun. I'll have to post a few of the Photoshop images, once the students pull the pose off of the photo.
