The Beauty Shot...

And here it is, in all its glory! Amazing how hard it is to photograph this color. It's not actually quite this red, but a rich mahogany browny russet. Hard to photograph, too. I stood on the bed to try to shoot down on it, and then scraped a huge piece of skin from the back of my heel when I tried to step down without standing on the blanket. The trials of photography! So now, I need to get serious about what's next. Nothing too complicated, since I only have a few days before I take off for California.

Lovely, but ouch. Not so salubrious for you.

I know what you mean about color and trying to get it photographed right. I have one quilt top that I have been making and no matter where I try to take a photo the color is never right! Have a good trip to California.

Wow!
I hope you bring it to California to keep warm here. It has been cold (not like back east) in the Bay Area
