I just wanted to share our family’s newest obsession with you. Lately my daughter has become fascinated with pixel art. The idea is that you draw in a 100×100 pixel sized square to create these mini-pictures. She is using an old version of Photoshop, but there are quite a few free graphics programs out there one could use. You can find a list of them at about.com. On initial perusal I would probably try out paint.net. If anyone is using it, let me know what you think.
As to the book club, we have a tie between Sew Darn Cute and Re-Creative. Since we had two sewing books in a row, I’ve decided that we’ll discuss Re-Creative: 50 Projects for Turning Found Items Into Contemporary Design, Steve Dodds on March 25th to be followed by Sew Darn Cute–30 Sweet & Simple Projects to Sew & Embellish, by Jenny Ryan on May 6th.
If you’ve been on the fence about joining the TAD swap, tomorrow, 2/10, is the last day to sign up.
Boy, that was a lot of housekeeping.
