UFOs: Part 1

UFOs: Part 1

I have a lot of UFOs. Probably enough to be considered alien. I’m listing them here as much to have a record as to share. This group is all out of my sewing basket. I discovered if I did all my photo editing on my phone, my photos retain their dimensions at halt the size they become when I open then in Irfanview or GIMP (my photo programs) and I can upload them here with no problems. Editing is limited…

Links for large gifs

Facebook is the only site that let me upload my gifs, but their sharing options are limited. I’ve made the gif public, so, if interested, you should be able to see them here: Faith Junaid | Facebook https://www.facebook.com/faith.junaid/

Weird Problems

Weird Problems

If only these were the worst problems people had. Since sometime in the summer or fall of 2020 airynothing.net* has been giving me problems with images. I’ve been back and forth with the web hosts about it. They are working on it, but with covid, everything goes more slowly. Today I wanted to upload an image to show what I’ve been doing, but since it’s a huge animated gif, I knew I couldn’t upload it directly to wp. I went…

Just Playing Again

Just Playing Again

Sometimes/always there are other things I could/should be doing, but my inner two-year-old takes over and apparently has no adult supervision. I managed to dry one load of clothes (washed the previous day), but I made a lot of kaleidoscope designs. This started out as an abstract bird design. I deleted the background color, then used painting/color abstract paint/comic book (and other) filters (each separate) modes with two of the above (various combinations) sharpen filter symmetry kaleidoscope filter (10 divisions)…

Goodbye, 2021

Goodbye, 2021

Alex came home on the 19th. I don’t get on the computer much when he’s here. We didn’t do much other than enjoy being together. Of course, we did watch a lot of movies and a TV series or two. Baahubali was a two-part movie (about 2 1/2 hours each). It’s an Indian mythic story and was a lot of fun to watch. Hausu (House) was, as IMDB put it, “the most bizarre Haunted House movie I’ve ever seen.” Andhadhun is another…

It Was a Dark and Stormy Day

It Was a Dark and Stormy Day

Not today. The sun is out today. Yesterday the rain poured down and, off and on all week, it’s been grim and cloudy. Since I am most definitely solar powered, that means my energy level hovered around “0” and I didn’t get much done. 😢 Timbers made it to the playoffs, but, alas, did not win. They played in that pouring rain. They made an exciting goal in the final 15 seconds to tie the game, but it ended up…

Bird’s Nest

Bird’s Nest

After reading Jude’s post yesterday, I was thinking about stitched baskets. I wanted to try out one of my ideas, but it was only half formed. I started with a bird I’d already done and added a nest. The nest is kind of a basket. Boucle was the wrong yarn to use. I ended up improvising from beginning to as far as I got. The nest is first couched boucle then twine, very loosely woven through the boucle. The twine…

Not Much

Not Much

I was going to post photos of me in 2011 and 2021, but the older photos are not on Flickr or my computer. I am assuming they are either on my other computer or on a disk. I need to write in the morning, I think. My son called. I love talking to him. We converse about things no one else either of knows talks about. But we talked about two hours and whatever I was planning to write is…
