Up for a challenge


Up for a challenge
Originally uploaded by fayeriggsbee
In case you are wondering....I am "learning" flicker, a new camera, how to make a mosaic and the new layout for blogger posts all at the same time....Thats a bit much for someone my age!~~  But, bear with me as I learn....I just wanted to see if this mosaic would link up correctly....And, it looks like it did...

Now, I need the Tylenol bottle as this is WAAAYY too much techy stuff for me to absorb so quickly....

PS: Thanks Nicole for your Tech Support~~




Here are 12 of my 15 WIP's for the Up for a challenge 2011...Wish me luck~~~

Sounds like you are "up for a challenge" in more ways than one! LOL! That's a lot to learn, but your mosaic looks fabulous. Love all of your WIPs and will look forward to seeing them on your blog.

Good luck on your WIPs! Your lightning needles will have them finished in no time. :)

Beth said...

Congrats on learning this Flicker thing, maybe I will try that sometime. And really GOOD LUCK on those WIP's. They are look beautiful, and BIG!!

Jackie said...

I want to learn how to do a mosaic on Flickr too. It would probably just push me over the edge today. I have to be in the right frame of mind (and have a chunk of time) to learn a new blog/technical skill. It just does not come naturally!

Great WIPS! :)

Lynn said...

I can't handle learning that much new stuff all at once anymore. My brain needs to dump some things in order to make room for the new stuff, lol!
Your WIP look fantastic! Good luck with the challenge.

gracie said...

I would love to learn how to post my photos better...Flickr...hummmmm...not today. It looks relly nice Faye.

Nan said...

I think you are getting your brain back in shape after Christmas break....Right? Back to work for me tomorrow as well.

Good luck on the WIPs. You'll have those stitched up and finished in no time.

Cathy B said...

Wow, you've got some really gorgeous projects there!

Maybe once you become a pro at Flickr you could teach me? :) I need to get my photos organized in 2011 - that is my challenge!

Margaret said...

lol! I just went through the learning process on mosaics too! It was time consuming for sure! Love all your projects -- looking good!

Deb said...

I hear you on the mosaics. I know there's a lot more that I can do, but it's so time-consuming! Love all your projects and your mosaic too.

Jan said...

Oh that is terrific...I so want to learn how to do this, but your mention of it being high tech gives me the shivers, since I am NOT that at all! But I will give it a go sometime soon, since yours is so lovely!

Good for you and Thanks!

Nicole said...

NP Faye! :) Your wips are all so beautiful!! I had to wipe the drool off my iPad just now!

Katrina said...

Love the collage, good job and great projects. Isn't Nicole the sweetest :-).

Yvonne..... said...

Happy New Year Faye! Can't wait to see you again - soon, I hope!! You might want to try Picasa 3 too. It's free and I do all of my photo editing, etc., in it. I can upload to anywhere for photo processing or to my blog. It is EXTREMELY easy.

Peggy Lee said...

Ohhhhh...that mosaic is very well done. A beautiful way to show your talent!
Masterchief and I have been putting pictures on Flickr since...oh gosh...2004 maybe? Maybe earlier. It's a great way to share our life here in Kentucky with friends and family back home.

Diana said...

Great choice of WIPs! I'll be watching to see your progress.

Pointed Stitcher said...

I like seeing flicker on people's blogs but I don't think I could figure it out.

Siobhan said...

Love the WIPs!! Flickr is easy once you play around with it a bit. If Nicole is helping you, you're in good hands. :) She's so computer savvy! Can't wait to watch your progress on your WIPs.

Nina said...

Great WIPs, Faye :)
Don't worry about learning new things... it's never late to learn new things :)
Happy New Year!!

Nina

Lesleyanne said...

Be always in stitches

Fiona said...

Your mosaic looks great and good luck with your challenge

Michelle said...

I just learned how to do mosaics too, and am learning a new camera. You've got lots of beautiful WIPs there for your challenge!!!

Joy said...

You did a great job with your mosaic Faye! I would LOVE to learn that too! Your city stitcher is looking good and it is pretty. Here's to a finsh the WIPs year!

Love your mosiac WIP - YGG - many happy stitches in 2011 ~ ~ Melody

Tommye said...

You're a better woman than I!!! The very thought of that many WIPs makes my stomach churn. I'll be watching though, to see your progress.

Mama Joan said...

Faye,

You have inspired me to try to learn to use Flicker. Luckily I have a daughter who I can use to hopefully teach me. I am very computer challenged. Your blog looks good too:)

Brigitte said...

Faye, you have some wonderful WIPs. Such great designs, so the WIP challenge is just perfect for finishing them. I only have 5 or 6, so I joined the Crazy Challenge in order to produce some more WIPs, lol.
Have a great and happy new stitching year.

Natasha said...

I love the mosaic. Your projects are all so beautiful!

sewcreative said...

Congratulations on your new computer skills! LOL I just learned how to do the collage thing myself using Picasa. I now feel I can conquer the world :)
