Fast-Topic-Changing Friday prepared for takeoff…
|This is perhaps the worst Winter Wonderland photo in history, but! Last week! Snow! In Austin!
We’ve all gotten over the shock now, and we’re back to 78 degrees today. Whew.
|More exclamation points! Because! Addi Click set!
Addi just released their interchangeable needle set, and it rocks. The needles connect without the use of a tool, the join is lovely, and the cords are all Addi.
Somebody oughta tell Santa that knitters want this.
|Sunday was a big day for me…I hit Day 366 of my year-long self-portrait project.|
|For my finale photo, I decided to do an art project within an art project.
This required a lot of card stock, printer ink, and lame test shots that featured the ceiling.
|I really just got lucky…I started building the collage before I knew if my lens would pan out enough to show all the photos. I also didn’t know if I was going to be able to get enough light on the whole thing to show detail.
But as I printed, cut, and taped – I saw it coming together and WORKING.
|I even did rehearsal shots, to see what photos my arms were going to cover if (when) I raised them.
I was able to incorporate every photo from the project but 40, and I chose to leave those out because they were too dark to really show.
The collage took me about a week to assemble.
|Here’s the final shot. This was the first shot that day. I took more, but I think this one ended up being the best because my enthusiasm and expression were so genuine.
|I’ve mentioned before that Abe has a fondness for dragging things into the backyard. (Unfortunately, he’s training Tippy in this skill as well.)
This is what I found when I got out of the shower the other day.
Have a great weekend!
