Leap Year Basket - Basic to Fun Quilt Pattern Block Tutorial

Pin It

Here's a GREAT basket quilt pattern and then made fun, 

I had a BALL with this one, There will be more fun one's later in the week. 

Leap year Knowledge ! 

Leap years are needed to keep our modern day Gregorian calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun.
It takes the Earth approximately 365.242189 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. This is called a tropical year.
However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn't add a leap day on February 29 nearly every four years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year. After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by around 24 days!
I Googled this from Time and Date 
Finished Block size 8" x 8"

Photo Friday - Color Play

Pin It

It's all about the turn, cut, color and editing.
I moved the Photoshop program to my laptop and it's moved to the living room couch....
Maybe a bad thing, but I'm doing it. Computer work is NOT my favorite.

Flower Friday, Bee a Lily Photo

Pin It
If you have stayed the course with me, you know I'm in a bit of a new discovery time.
Turning 58 in January and letting it all go.....has been mind blowing for me. I have learned time will not wait for me. I have to do what I want NOW. Photography is one of my new discoveries and learning tools. 
I started a 52 Week Photo Challenge, late 2015.
It had to be on it's own site, do a photo a week, so on, and so on.
I'm done with that, I like what I like, I shot pictures daily so here they are on this MY site.
I love comments ! BUT, Please only Kindness 

"Bee a Lily"

Bee a Lily Photo

See the photo change as the camera is moved just a bit. I use a Canon, point and shot camera, about a 
$200 model, nothing fancy. I don't look as I shot, I just shot. I'll look when I download to the computer. So lots of photo's for the one up top,
