Astronauts and Antiquities

Last night I finished a baby blanket for some friends’ baby. The baby is much cuter than the blankie, but that is to be expected 🙂

It was more square than this pic leads you to believe. Honestly it was.

Here is a close up of the fun part. I stippled stars and swirlies throughout the black background of the central piece.

I don’t usually do hand-stitching that is visible, but I thought I would give it a try on this border.

Yesterday I attended a talk on improving one’s photography skills so I felt inspired to pull out the camera and play with aperture settings. However, I realized that I *still* have to read some more of that huge honking manual so that I can figure out *how* to play with the aperture settings. In the meantime, I got some fun pics of the oldest thing we own. Not exactly an antiquity but still … it is from the Old World. 🙂
