Digital photos have certainly changed how we take pictures. I remember taking film to Europe and being so careful, allotting so many rolls to each country so I wouldn't run out. Tried not to waste a single shot because I had to pay for developing whether I wanted them or not.
Love the ones on the blog. Thanks.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi There!!! Wow, There are so many delightful things to photograph in Lori's amazing studio, but since I'm not a photographer, this is going to be a wild guess, I'm going to say you had to have taken in the neighborhood of 1500 pictures. And I don't envy your process of elimination because from what I have seen on Lori's blog during my frequent visits, there is sooooo much eye candy that everyone can enjoy, with her many fun collections of thing that appeal especially to us "mature" folks, but especially for quilters and stitchers! I know I would want a pic of everything, LOL. So anyway, my guess stands at 1500 pictures and that is probably a little low. All the same, good luck to everyone as we sit and drool over the beautiful Binding Box! Big Hugs to all...
