Dumping Pictures

Not too long ago I received an invitation on flickr to join a group whose entire focus was to get members to dump their entire photostreams into the group. I think the point of this was to create the biggest flickr group. I didn't join. I just couldn't see the point. But today I'm doing a mini, very mini, version of this. I'm uploading a series of unrelated photos just because. I don't even have a goal. I just want to get the pictures out there. I will say that they were all taken in one day. So if I have a criteria for this picture dump, it would be that. Who knows? If I like the way these images look together, I might do this again.


My friend Vicki was admiring a reversible bag that I had made and was using to carry my knitting. Needless to say, that's all it took for me to offer to make her one. In the end I made two because I wanted her to have a choice. She chose the one with the squiggles fabric.


I have a customer who has an amazing collection of Oilily fabric and this is probably the tenth item I've made for her using this fabric.

Imagine this photo without the white pick up truck. A little difficult considering this is Texas, but do your best. Is the truck gone? Good. Now enjoy this wonderful combination of colors. This building is located near the Austin Community College central campus and I discovered it a couple of weeks ago. I was turning a corner and it caught my eye. This picture was taken during the week, but I'm planning on returning on a Sunday when I won't have to imagine the cars away. Ever since I noticed this building I've started to notice other buildings that display great color combinations.
So there you have it. One day's worth of pictures.
