Dan found an excellent little Mexican restaurant in the NW corner of Las Vegas. The food was delicious for a decent price. After eating, we stopped at a park that was down the block from the restaurant. I had to grab my camera because I could see these roses were just begging to be photographed!Do you think I take a lot of photos? I do. I finally cleaned out my hard drive the other day. I don't know what's with me this week - I'm just in this mood for finishing and cleaning things up for some reason. Spring cleaning? Maybe....but I digress....
...Okay, back to too many photos.
I moved all of last years photos into one 2011 folder and uploaded the folder to my two external hard drives. It took 20 minutes to upload because I had over 7200 photos to move! Yep, 7200 photos and that is after cleaning out many of the files of bad photos. At one point, I had 400 photos in the Recycle. I never let it fill like that again since it took awhile for the Recycle bin to empty!
I have been using that advice and it does make a difference especially when taking action photos. With the roses, I took photos from every angle. What looked great to the eye, did not always look great in a photo.
And then there's the 365Project where I need to upload a photo a day. That can turn into a bunch of photos for just one photo to be uploaded. But no excuses, I just love taking pictures! All 7200+!
So, my hard drive has been cleaned out and I have already started filling it up again with more photos for this year.

I like the way this one came out.
On the Cutting Board
Alllll-righty-then! All the binding has been sewn onto the quilts! I started last night on blind stitching the binding to the quilt's back. Now that I am down to hand sewing....I can start putting things away! Yep, back to that cleaning mood...
It will be nice to get our home back into some sort of order today. I can put up the table that has been under foot and a good knee bruiser if I'm not careful. I can put away my sewing machine so that I can have room on the dining room table to actually eat! I know that many of you think this must be quite a hassle for me, but it isn't because I stay more focused on the projects I'm working on.
Reward time! Time to sit down and do a little hand sewing or start a new project or take some more photos....here kitty, kitty, kitty...want to pose for me?
