|Even my trimming bin is happy with these colors.|
I can't believe that it is already Wednesday again. It feels like the week is passing by so quickly and so slowly all at the same time. I haven't really made a ton of progress in the sewing front this week. I managed to make a little progress on Complications Quilt. That's what I'm calling it for now-it needs a better name but well this quilt has proven to be very complicated to me so I am going to refer to it as that until I come up with something better.
I had been working with the assumption that I would make all the blocks first and then start trying to assemble the puzzle pieces together. I of course got ahead of myself though and decided to put together the first chunk of the puzzle. It has grown a little since I snapped this picture but I am really glad I decided to start putting it together because it really helped me see that while I thought I was dispersing the colors pretty evenly I had large sections that didn't have as much contrast as I had hoped for so I was able to make some corrections.
My other project this week was to update the look of my blog a little. When I first started blogging I was lucky enough to win a blog header in a give away. I used a basic blogger template and called it done. I eventually changed my background to a template from a free site and thought it looked okay. Occasionally I have updated that template like now to give it a fresh look. Just recently though I figured out that I could add to the header templates and all through a site like picmonkey. So I took a basic header template that matched my background over to picmonkey and added in some more elements and then I got this.
I have to admit I am pretty proud of myself for figuring it out. I'm not the most technology savvy person out there so little things like this are a big deal to me. Although I am learning more and more and there are some great tutorials floating around out there. Oh and see my pretty comments button up there, I made that too with some free clip art and the addition of a little text.
Be sure to head over to Lee's and see what everyone else is up to this week.
