A finished quilt. Hooray!

I spent  time over the weekend sewing and am V. pleased to have knocked this one off the list.
Our guild make quilts for kids visiting town with Camp Quality in November and I decided this year I would make a quilt that looks a bit beachy. The wonky seagulls made me smile.
I like taking photos too and I'm always impressed by the lovely pixs so many bloggers take.
When Lizzie from A House in the Country blog asked me to join her photo group on flickr I jumped at the chance.  My little Canon Power Shot is pretty basic but I sometimes snap a good shot and I am learning to push some of those clever buttons it has.
This week we have the challenge to photograph "Texture" and I wandered outside as the sun was setting tonight to catch the slanting rays of light and was surprised at the effects on this ceramic mosaic.
Next I found a hive of bees settling into bed for the night. Thank goodness for zoom so I didn't have to get too close. They have created their own texture in the flash from the camera.
