Quilting | 2017 New Bloggers Blog hop


I have a new look. do you like it? I made it myself.I am participating in this years new quilt bloggers blog hop #2017NewQuiltBloggers.

2017 New Quilt Bloggers
 I have been working on the page layout, logo, photography, widgets and gadgets, pins and buttons. It sounds like a cross between a sewing studio and and tech industrial laboratory.


The 9658 logo

I am thinking about purchasing the copyright for the design below that I made at #Logojoy . I chose the clean lines because It makes me feel organized,
I chose the boarder to contain multiple products under the 9658 brand: Quilts, Honey, Crochet, Bees, Hives, and whatever else we decide to market as a product.

Photography 

I have been working on my photography skills as well. A few beginner things I have been working on
  • Holding the camera steady, 
  • Shooting the right perspective. 
  • Lighting
  • Photo editor


I think that I have figured out the lighting for my cutting area, AKA the dining room table (maniacal laugh)  I am trying to decide between. Pic Monkey or BeFunky  as my photo editor; Pic Monkey might be better but it costs money and I am what I prefer to call, thrifty.


Linking with Finished or Not Friday because I am definitely not finished making this blog better
Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts

So long for now, and stay thrifty my friends.

    1. Thank you Rose, It still feels like a work in progress, but that is fine. I'm not in a hurry, for me it is the learning curve I enjoy so immensely.

    1. Hi Jan, Thank you for the comments! I am using the simple theme from blogger for my blog layout, I then went into the advanced settings and just played around with the fonts and colors until I got something I liked. It took a bit of time to get there but, the perseverance was worth it, I think.
