Quilted Owl Pillow

Here is a pillow I made last week. I just need to stuff it. It's pretty good for my first quilting experience. I'm terrible at freemotion quilting but the owl pattern itself is so cute and I love the colors. The pattern is from the book: Be Attitudes by Nancy Halvorsen. I'm hooked on her patterns!!!

Photoshop... Orton Technique

I just installed a coooool action from: http://coffeeteaphotography.blogspot.com/ called Orton.

It was deveolped in the 80's by a photographer named (Michael?) Orton who took two slides of the same thing, one being out of focus, put them together and printed. It makes this beautiful, etheral photo. Click on the image to enlarge.. It looks much better that way :)
