Confined...

... to the garden, we enjoy the autumn colour there.


( Collage done using Picasa. Easy and fun, even for a technodunderhead like me.)

I think I'll probably try to do one written post one day, a picture one the next.

Not only is this Post Every Day Month, it's also Novel Writing Month. This I cannot do. How people write even bad novels is a mystery and a prodigious feat to me and not one I have any expectation of mastering. It's also Knit a Sweater month. Ilan's coat will have to do for that, which is coming on OK. I'll post about that another time.

Stunning photos - just beautiful! Collage made with Picasa, huh? I must investigate

Thanks Jean. It was done rather in haste, I think I would have had the pictures in a different order if I'd taken more time on it.

Picasa is good fun - Joe Hyam put me onto it. It has a few really useful quick tools which are easier and quicker to find your way around than Photoshop - not least a really nifty 'straighten' button which is ideal for cack-handed photographers like me who are frequently cursed with sloping horizons! Also it displays things nicely. Google and download it if you haven't got it already. Eggsucking lessons not intended...

This is why I have to do Nanowrimo, jump in the middle, sink or swim.

The photos are such bright fun!

You could always blog about knitting a novel sweater...no?

It might save time.

Thanks.
Z - yes, the 'just do it' aspect of these things can be quite liberating.
M - piecing together lots of little bits makes for a nice effect, like quilting, making more of it than of each individual part.
L - or else knit the text of a novel into a sweater and put a photo of it on the blog?
