The birds are back, which means it's time for me to try to get pictures again. I was definitely not cut out to be a wildlife photographer, to do it well requires too much patience and willingness to sit in cold swamps and things....But there was a pair of swans on a pond near my house, with a parking spot even, so I made another attempt. I had a nice, sunny spot, so no sitting in swamps...The next challenge is to get them when they are not feeding or sleeping, or just in some really weird position...
They usually look like this...
It was also a little too bright out, but luckily I usually just need the shape of the bird to use in my quilts, so I think I got a few that should work. I'll leave the fancy stuff to Mark "Sparky" Stensaas...http://www.sparkyphotos.com/

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
