Do you photograph your art?

It's always amazed me the ways you can manipulate fabric with a simple needle and thread, and a bit of imagination. Not me personally, but those women who are true fabric artists. I simply don't have the focus to stick with and master just one medium. But being the daughter of a seamstress fabric naturally became my first love, and I've been sewing for over 35 years. I'd gather the bits of fabric that fell to the floor as I sat under our dinning table while my mother sewed for hours above me. My poor Barbi and her wacky wardrobe! Her house wasn't safe from my handy work either, but I can't tell you how much fun I had! Good Memories.

In my 20's I started quilting. Regretfully it never occurred to me to take photos of the quilts I've made, until I made this one last month for my niece's baby Hudson due in September.

I made this quilt a few years ago with fabric Jennifer sent me in a trade. It's from her Mod Girls line, and I can't tell you how much everyone loves this quilt... even Andrew stayed cozy on Christmas behind a sea of funky, fun, fab color!

This is a simple quilt I made a few years ago for my archery lovin, cowboy husband. The pattern has the best old west graphics if you ask me, I mean... who doesn't love a rootin' tootin' cowboy?
These are just a few of the quilts I grabbed from our quilt basket to snap pics of. I'm sewing three quilts now, and this time I'll be sure to take photos before I gift them to others. So tell me, do you take pictures of your art? If not, I hope you'll start for the sake of posterity!
