I'm auditioning fabrics for the next block, Hydor. When I audition fabrics, I try to show the same proportion of the fabric in my audition that will be seen in the block. So, the purples and blue and focus fabric in the front will be seen most and the green touches all the fabrics in the block.
I wasn't sure about the two magentas. They seemed a bit bright and maybe a bit too close in value when I looked at them through my eyes, but when I took a photo of them, they look bright and different.
I substituted in two duller magentas and look how it changes the block. Much less reach out and grab ya'. Either way, that second fabric looks yellow, but it's not. It's a bright, light orange. I'll have to do something about that.
You guys asked for pictures of Mable. I have never known a camera shy dog. Maybe it's the flash that hurts her very light, golden brown eyes.
Don't know, but we started with this. She would not come any closer.
I set the camera on the floor and she came this close. I had to be very quick before she turned.
Unfortunately, the more pictures I took, the more it looked like I was torturing her.
I swear, I am not hurting her. So camera shy.
Fortunately, I got this one in her favorite spot, but even in this one, it looked like she was asking why I was bothering her nap. This is where she goes when I get ready to leave. If she can curl up in a small enough ball, maybe I won't see her and put her in the crate.
She had a bit of surgery a couple of days ago and she's doing very well. She had lots of tests and everything is fine. So, I breathed a heavy sigh of relief. I would have felt so sorry for Rob if he'd fallen in love with a million dollar hound dog.
But, I think I found out where she needs to be photographed. I need to have her in the yard. Outside, she's much more animated and pays me much less attention, so she probably wouldn't see the camera at all. But, I ran out of time today. I was too busy trying to get her off the scent of some wild creature that apparently wandered through the back yard in a zig-zag pattern and then circled the greenhouse several times. I'll try again soon.
