We finally made it!!!

We closed on the house we were selling this past Wednesday. The septic work finally got done and approved by the health department.  I can't figure out how to add photos from my iPad or I would show you the mess it made in the yard. We are now living with my MIL and computer is not hooked up.

We will see our new house on August 7 and be able to move in on August 13. The end is near. Or should I say the new beginning is near? We are excited.

I have been doing a lot of walking and reading, but only thinking about quilting. Once I get settled in the new house I will work on canal house quilt. It has been calling my name lately.

Playing some more with abstract designs

While we are waiting (yes still waiting) for the septic work to begin I decided to play with the abstract design stuff a bit more. This is what I have come up with.

Sunlight Shining Through Forest Nagano-ken, Japan

A grayscale overlay of pixels and paper design. I like the lost and found edges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

purple squares lines

Taking the purple pixels and breaking it up and adding some lines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

more complicated purple lines

Breaking the design up further. Has the looking though a window effect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

purple zigzag

Using the zigzag filter. Rain running down a window?

 

 

 

 

 

 

purpleaccented edges

Adding accented edges.

purplestampgrayscale

Using the stamping filter and turning to grayscale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well more designs to consider. What do you think?

Linking to Nina-Marie a day early since we are traveling to see our new house tomorrow and visit my dad for father’s day. Will take lots of photos to see what kind of progress they have made on our house.

Thanks for reading.
