Planning......

While cleaning off tables in the basement I laid out 3 more Bento Box blocks.  Then I picked up all of the loose pieces so I could finish cleaning that table.
My daughter sent me a Selfie Stick to take photos of myself while creating my art.  There is a learning curve using it, trying to hold it steady when pressing the button.  The light is behind me here, not ideal but I have to keep practicing so I can take some in progress quilt shots with me in them.  

I baked one batch of cookies last night and will do the other batch tonight after my workshop.

What a lovely photo of you. I like your shirt/blouse - the only style I wear with a collar, buttoned front and tabs to keep the sleeves rolled up - we both have great taste :)

I love the quilt on the wall behind you. The bento box is looking real good.

I have thought of getting one of those sticks for use at home - but you should see what some people do with them at the national parks we go to - they are paying more attention to getting photos of themselves with a wild animal in the background and not of how close that animal is getting to them! In some areas they are banning the use of selfie sticks :) for safety -- crazy - but using in a home or when you know exactly what is in back of you sounds great!

Now a big ole' glass of milk to go with those delish looking cookies!

I'll bet there is a learning curve there - lighting, angle, buttons, etc., but it will be fun once you start using it.

Those bentos are great.

Your cookies ok great and I know they are delicious as I've eaten them before. Please share with the world your magic formula for letting batter sit, I've forgotten it.

My iPad changed some of my words, sorry.

Terrific photos of the progress on your Bento Box quilt!

Cute selfie, and gorgeous quilt!

What size center block and strips did you use?

Susan said...

Those cookies look almost as yummy as your quilts- I'm guessing peanut butter?

Looking good Wanda, both you and the cookies, and I can't wait to see more selfies as you teach and share your years of knowledge with us.
Since I'm late in reading this, it is already Monday and the cooler weather is here for a few days, and I couldn't be happier.
