I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Design Wall Monday
This is what's on my Design Wall this Week. Well, it's not really on my wall, it's more on my list to be quilted.
I figured out why I procrastinate quilting a bed-sized quilt. It's because I have to stop everything else I'm doing and devote myself entirely to that project for the duration (which is usually at least a week). It's a test of determination for me. Still, it'll be good for my FMQ challenge because I intend to practice some large ivy designs in the center and some smaller of the same designs on the sashings and borders.
I started this FMQ piece yesterday. Remember I said I wanted to practice some flowers? I forgot that to get to the flowers in this piece, I had to sew some straight lines first. What a disaster!!! Look at those wobbly lines. They didn't look that bad last time I did lines ... Wait, last time I FMQed straight lines I was sewing black on black. Maybe they weren't that straight. Guess I need to practice those lots, too!
For those of you who are interested in FMQ, my friend Joanne and I have a Challenge with a prize. You have just enough time to enter!
I also have a second challenge for anyone who is interested in writing poetry or prose (novice or otherwise).
In other news, I received my proof copy of my Grand Falls photo book. I'm hoping to sell this to several local businesses. Here's a glimpse of what's inside.
