WIP - Big Blue Stem

Here it is hanging vertically, I started this piece many moons ago, as in like sometime around 1999 many moons ago! 


This piece has always bothered me, there's a thread over on the Quilt Art list about cutting up a piece.  Well I've been tempted to cut the dark side of this quilt off for some 12 years now!  Now that I have Adobe CS 6 I've started experimenting with this piece
Here it is without the marks, I'm thinking some additional stitching and or embellishment is needed to make this piece really sing.

Organizing

Still working on getting my desktop organized, but with the help of my neighbor, I was able to get some of the computer issues resolved, one of them was replacing the network card and adding more RAM to the machine, the best part was  the addition of the second workstation moniter.  The new addition is already making video editing much nicer, ditto on writing in InDesign.
