    I am curious, where do you show off pictures of your work...all artists have some kind of journal to show their work...I have been using Flcikr...but apparently have recently been locked out due to flickr/yahoo losing my password, and the one I have won't work...so Now I have to set it up all over...or try a different site... :cry:

    BJ looking for your input!

    I keep mine in a Quilting Journal. Along with the pictures I write down imformation, mostly how I was feeling at the time, what inspired me and who it was made for.

    I try to keep a quilt journal also, but now find that since I've gotten a digital camera, I don't keep it up as I should. I have a lot of my projects on my facebook page.

    I don' show mine off.. I keep a picture in my computer for my own use but I don't feel the need to show them off other than to my friends here.. I also take them to my different quilt groups that I belong to.

    I should add....although I do print pics of all of my stuff for my album. The only people I show are on here though. People in my life don't understand the true beauty so the album is for me when I want to look back at my projects.

    YOu know what, I do not consider sharing our photos on here of quilts showing off. We tend to think of it as sharing. I love seeing the different levels of quilters on here and their color choices. I get good ideas and sill do something in a color I never would have considered until seeing it on here. Yes, I post pictures. I used to only in my PDA but I have made so many new friends by posting on the picture site and others who like the quilts pm each other and get the patterns. Another reason we SHARE, is because there may be a pattern out there we knew nothing about and would like to try. I respect the ones who only keep their pictures in journals and such, I do too. What nice Memories of our quilts. Showing off...I don't think of it like that. I have put some that are a little wonky but that's all part of the fun. I hope this thread won't keep others from posting pictures because they think it is showing off. Not on this board. We love it. JMHO. :)

    There are two ways to think of showing off. I think this was meant in the nicest way. To let others get ideas and be inspired. I know I have saved many pictures and patterns from the Picture topic. I have a journal of my things as well. I don't show them any other place. I don't even take them to Guild for show and tell. Just me!!!

    I don't consider it showing off, I refer to it as sharing :thumbup:

    I love to see pictures of others projects in all of the different stages. It is better than browsing through a quilters magazine.

    I share my pix here, on FB, and on Flickr and on at my yahoogroups.

    I think you contact Flickr/yahoo and they will help you get back into your account.
    Do you have the acct. you pay for? I know I do, and they keep your info on file for you.

    You can also find your passwords "locked" in your computer memories...I would have to ask my son just where it is, but I printed mine out so I could have a back up in case CRS happened one day.
    I also keep an address book with all of that info coded into it...I apprently spend wayyyyyy tooo much time on the computer and need all this info stored elsewhere.

    I also keep thumbdrives of my pix and they are all on an External hard drive for back up.

    I know a famous quilter who just lost 12 years of her photos, book layouts, etc due to NO back up of her files!

    as for "showing off"...Lord, there is nothing more inspirational than seeing what somebody else did with their split 9 patches, or OBW....without the pix for references, who would remember the names of all the patterns we use?

    No, pix of our hard work are for sharing, inspiring and bragging! God did not give us these talents to keep them to ourselves..we have to share them!

    I personally find all the pics shared here a learning tool for my brain injuries.
    I don't think I would have started quilting if hadn't seen all different things.
    I am very glad to those who share their work :)

    I love looking at other folks' work. I just started quilting about a year ago and before I found this site, I had 2 additional quilts that I wanted to make. Just couldn't imagine anything else that I would ever want to do. Now, well, my list is so long that I don't think I'll ever get to the end. It's not showing off, it's inspiring others! (ok, I'll admit I do send links to the pictures I post here to my family. If you can't show off to your sister...) :D

    OOPS~~~
    I have to be honest and admit that
    I WAS SHOWING OFF !!
    I have every right to...
    Have you any idea what I have accomplished thru 2 brain injuries.
    I realized... and I am sooooo Proud of me ... I needed to show off;
    so please forgive me if I went overboard...

    [quote=featherweight]Well excuse me for using the wrong term

    Oh featherweight, I was not responding to your post in particular, just the words "Showing off". So sorry if it came across this way. It was meant to be an excited, not showing off, but sharing thing. There are some who won't post because they think this way and I wanted to make sure more would post or continue to. HUGS
    :oops: I used to only post in my PDA and now, since we are encourage to post in PIctures, I started doing so.

    I like looking at others work, but never take pictures of my own to show off, don't even take them to our Show and Share at our Guild. And I do make very nice quilts, but it is just me.
