So What's On Your Camera?

So what's on your camera? Here's what I found on mine...4 weeks ago we visited the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Below are bronze statues of the "Pennsylvania Delegation" to the signing of the Constitution. This room has life size bronze statues of all the signers.

Independence Hall

The Independence Visitors Center, behind that is where the Liberty Bell is.

State Flags.

The delicious cake I baked for Danielle's birthday, we like to recycle candles...

And now to why I really uploaded my photos. I am participating in a holiday quilt swap, and wanted to share the progress. I am going to thread paint the reindeer, and applique the other sections. This is one of the reindeer, just the under sewing. It is a sandwich of 2 pieces of water soluble stabilizer, with a piece of small weave tulle in the middle.

I am auditioning fabric for the background. I really love the snowflakes and wind as well as the stars with the swirls and in the corner is a black background batik with splashes of color. I like the cloud fabric better, so I think the gray fabric is winning, it produces a better contrast. Anyway isn't the winter sky gray most of the time?
