31. Negative Space  Today’s prompt was Negative Space. While I shot a lot of images that would qualify, these two spoke to me. This first one I changed to ‘Negative’ so you can see the positive image on the muslin sheet that the photo is on. Follow this link to explain the largest pinhole camera image ever, The Great Picture.  Negative space is just a fancy way of saying the part of the image that isn’t the subject— the question today would be, is the building the negative space? Or were those fantastic clouds the negative space? These are both taken at Udvar-Hazy Center, Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

10634208_10205189710086295_1414833275_n (2) Last week, the prompt Distinctive had a subtopic of The Pink Hour…. but I didn’t have a good pink twilight that day.  Look at this one!

tati30. Tight—Tatiana has come out of her self-imposed seclusion this week! She now is joining me at the computer, leaping into my lap, but sometimes not even waiting for me to completely sit down first! (ouch!)
photo31. In The Garden  AFTER she introduced herself to the goats,(—> Laylabug and goats <—)  she decided to start working at Boulevard Flowers, and picked up the watering cans…

neko tiummy1. Focused—on comfort.
arlie2. Framed —love the shapes. Neko is framed in the triangle of Arlie’s leg, Arlie is framed in her doorway.

train23. Phone Art— O’Dark Thirty, Sunday Morning. Yes, I’m ‘driving’… but as I am not going anywhere while the freight train goes by….I take a LOT of my daily photos with my iPhone.  There are some amazing apps that are so easy to use to manipulate images!
1524598_10203963837000234_970889103_n24. Lineup–Lineup Tonight’s line up included dinner and shopping. We reconnected with a cousin we haven’t seen in a decade, and his fiancé. It was GREAT and we aren’t waiting that long till next time. After that, we had a bit of time to kill before finding her Momma, so we went shoe shopping. Laylabug sat down on the floor, took off her shoes and wanted to try out these Michael Kors….

10006203_10203976500196806_112641480_n26. Arched–Neko is watching dust particles in the sunbeam…
1947974_10203982333942646_218545708_n27. Where I Stand—Have we ever discussed my apparent inability to follow quilting patterns? Once again, presented with a quick quilt, even a non-thinking quilt, and I have turned it into a project.  This is based on the jellyroll star quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Company. But I can’t leave good enough. So instead of a jellyroll and a solid backing, I decided to blend eight fabrics from my collection that will alternate as either light or dark depending on where they go. I got the idea at RMQG meeting last week. Thanks, ladies! My drive home is always full of plotting!

neko   29. Luck  Neko feels that with luck, sitting patiently by his person’s door will bring her home! (it worked!!)

998958_10203988450135547_2052814423_n   Ok, spring IS coming. Woody is back! I haven’t heard him pecking on the bedroom walls yet too early in the morning, but it HAS been miserable and cold….

 1964940_10203971860080806_527308386_n    I crossed things off of my To Do list yesterday, so today I plan to leave work early and start tackling the rest— which are mostly quilting related!

That leaves us at the end of three months of CY365… Have you been playing along?? How is is going?
