I love a good challenge!
Not necessarily when it is against someone else, but a challenge for me personally...
A challenge that makes me think outside of the box, or improve a skill, or learn a new skill...
So when I stumbled across one on IG from Elle Luna (@elleluna) called
The 100 Day Project....(#the100dayproject)
Of course I wanted to join the challenge, but doing what?
At first I went straight to quilty mode, but that's what I do all the time...
and could I design a block a day for 100 days???
It took a few hours, but it came to me, and I have been having a fabulous time with my choice!
I picked up my Nikon D90 a much neglected love, since starting to quilt 3 years ago. If you have been following me on IG you will have seen my first 14 days! If you don't follow me I sure hope you will @upstairshobbyroom and I've been using the #100daysmy100photos the easiest way to see all the pictures together at once.
If you've read this far, and your are one of my fabulous online quilty friends, I know this isn't a quilting post and I hope that's ok, but if your are looking for a little "quilty" relation to this challenge, here it is...
I couldn't get the idea of a block a day for 100 days out of my head, lol, so I have been doing that as well! I'm chuckling at myself, like I don't have enough going on right now....but I just couldn't help myself...
The blocks are impressionist versions of my photos, and this may or may not work out like a sampler quilt, but I'm having fun with the challenge.
I thought it might be fun to share some of the photos I haven't used, because you know you go out to shoot one shot a day, but I'm taking more like 50-100....
What I've Been Up To:
(Hey Jean these are for you... you wanted to see where I live! This is farm life in rural Ontario, and I love it!!)
|This is our front lane view|
|If I get brave enough to climb this, I will be posting an ariel shot of our farm!|
|A small river runs through our farm|
|A busy beaver chopped down this tree! Look at the teeth marks in the close up|
Well that's the front and back of our farm and along the river, hope you enjoyed the view!
Have a great week everyone and don't forget the link up for April's One Block Wonder follow this link
