2021: Week 44 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


I continued taking lots of photographs this week, and have gone through my October folder to see if there were any other photos to show you. 


Most of these photos are taken with an iphone. Since I am taking so many photos, I thought I would try to submit some to Shutterstock. 


They rejected all of the ones I submitted, mostly due to compression and focus. It's okay. I am not upset. I figured that if they were usable, I should try. If they aren't, I can share them on my blog without worrying about it. 


I think I need to take photos with a better camera, but these are fun photos that happen when I am walking my dog, taking advantage of the situation.  

 I tend to take the photos pretty quickly, with the  leash in one hand and the camera in the other.


After I decided which photos to include in this post, I loaded more photos from my phone, so I will share those with you later.


I really liked the clearing in the clouds after the rain.

2021:  Week 44 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

Did you see the eye in the clearing clouds photo above this heading? 

This week, I finished the purple postage stamp block, pressed it, and started the red one. I got sidetracked a little bit with thinking about ideas for a mini quilt, but in the end, I decided I was more interested in making progress on my current projects.

I'm still enjoying my work and trying to get back to the habit of sewing every day. I managed to do it this week.

15 minute days this week --7 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 262 out of 304 days
Success rate  = 86%

You have really done good with the 15 minutes to stitch. I have probably averaged that, but with me not actually working, I did not count that and things have been so that I just quit even trying. I need to get back in the habit of trying to every day.

I did not see the eye till after you mentioned it. But I love skies like that, too.

That is a beautiful collection of leaves in the first photo.

Isn't it amazing how many colours the sky can turn into? The camera in a mobil phone is great for 'point and shoot', but if you want to control how to take the photo, a 'proper' camera is better. I think such a camera is too heavy, though and enjoy the portability of the mobile camera.

I like your photos! Thanks for sharing them! :0)

Aren't those leaves beautiful! Your cloud photo looks like a pupil in an eye!

Lots of fun fall photos. The SIT takes all her photos using her I-phone. When we got her a new phone a couple of years ago, she went for the one with the best camera. Hope you've been able to balance work with the stitching time. That's not been working out for me so well.
